If you're reading HeroPress on a laptop or computer (the only way to really appreciate the full glory of the blog), you might have noticed that I now highlight the audiobook I am currently listening to.
It's over on the right-hand side, way down below Words From The Wise (my readers' comments selection)
At the moment, I'm several stories into a revisitation of Wild Cards, Volume One, the shared universe of "superhero" stories, edited by George RR Martin and, initially, spun out out of a Superworld RPG campaign that Martin was running for his writer-friends.
Almost as much as the comics we were reading at the time, the Wild Cards anthologies were a core part of the development of our original HeroPress play-by-snailmail campaign back in the day.
I know I devoured the first three volumes at least when they came out, but now I intend to audio my way through the entire series!
Well, that's the plan. Clearly this is now a lifelong project for me.
There are currently almost 30 anthologies and novels in the Wild Cards universe, and not all of them are available on Audible as audiobooks (almost certainly due to the fact that different publishers have been involved in bringing the books to market over the years).
I'm kind of hoping, if I can stick to this plan, and factoring in that I will almost certainly listen to other books along the way, that by the time I actually reach the currently-unreleased titles (which appear to be in the middle of the run, annoyingly) the situation might have changed and I'll be able to add them to my Audible queue.
Wish me luck!
