600 NOT OUT!
I started my nine-in-a-row Gideon of the Yard (John Creasy) recordings the week beginning Monday 22 April. By Friday 26th I'd almost completed three on them. On that Friday evening I dashed from the London studio that I am recording the Creasy books in to Kings Cross and zipped up to Newcastle to record over that weekend (27/28 April) another of Sara Fraser's sagas about the delightful Town Constable Tom Potts. That book was called Till Death us do Part and it was my 600th audiobook!!! No time for celebrations as I was back on Sunday evening to carry on with the Gideon books. On Tuesday May 14th, the Gideon novels will be done. And that will make my total of books 606!!! I have a lot of talks coming up at the end of May and in June. So between the final Gideon and the talks I think I should shut up!!! I have been talking rather a lot! The Gideon Series (Rushforth); Till Death Us Do Part (Soundings)

Glad to hear you found my Infinity book fascinating (if stretching) - I've only just found out about it, so looking forward to hearing it!
Gordon says: Brian. I didn't expect YOU to read that! I admit I found it fascinating and learned a lot. Quite a tough book to record as there were things to describe that on the page were obvious but I had to somehow describe them. I hope you think it's worked as an audiobook. Gordon

So sad to hear the tragic news of Paul Sussman. He was a wonderful writer and I have heard the interview and he comes across as such a lovely man. It was a refreshing change an informal interview. It is a fitting tribute that as Narrator of the audio... read more »

Further to "Whose name on the audio book do I scan for .... A totally new dimension on the written version." I have trouble with various audio publishers - some play up the name of the reader on the spine most do not. I think I was previously askin... read more »
Gordon says: Hi Paul. I am not sure I exactly understand your problem. Do you mean that the readers name is obliterated by the bar code and library information? It's true that the reader's name is not usually on the spine. I saw demonstrated recently a brilliant device like a scanning pen. You scan the bar code and you are told the book's title, the author and the reader. If you want to have the reader's name on the spine then let me know. Or indeed anything else you think will help let me know and I will pass on that request to the publishers. Unfortunately I have no influence on how the books are presented. Thanks for getting touch. And please let me know if you want me to help further.

Gordon says: Ah Lois, yes. How could I forget dear old Alvarez? Always such fun to record. One of my very favourite policeman. A master creation by Roderic Jeffries. I should have included it!!!

Whose name on the audio book do I scan for .... today I am more than enjoying Robert Goddard's Sight Unseen. A totally new dimension on the written version.
Gordon says: Hi Paul. I am not quite sure what you want to know. Do you mean who read it? I did. I am chuffed it was such a good experience for you!
