Steve interviews Kevin Collins

One of the fun things we did recently was interview each of the sequence narrators for the Audible.com editions of the Liaden Universe® novels.

Kevin Collins narrated the Books of Before.  To hear his interview with Steve, click here:  [audio:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/528975/Liaden%20Interview_Kevin%20Collins%20and%20Steve%20Miller.mp3]

We’ll be uploading interviews with Bernadette Dunne, narrator of the Space Regencies; Andy Caploe, who read The Agent of Change Sequence; and Eileen Stevens, narrator of the Theo Waitley Sequence, so check back!

 

Sharon interviews Bernadette Dunne

We’re posting the narrator interviews in Sequence order, which means that next up is Bernadette Dunne, who voiced Local Custom, Scout’s Progress and Mouse and Dragon.

When Bernadette and I were going over the Weird Word Lists, we discovered a shared admiration for the work of Georgette Heyer.  Given that Local Custom and Scout’s Progress were written as tributes to Heyer, it seemed that this narrator/book pairing was nothing other than Destiny.

Sharon interviews Andy Caploe

Andy Caploe voiced the Agent of Change Sequence — five books in all; the most books drawn by any one narrator.  Because of that and Audible’s determination to release all fifteen novels on Dragon Ship’s official release day, Andy had to hustle.  Thanks, Andy!

Steve interviews Eileen Stevens

Eileen Stevens faced two challenges in recording the Theo Waitley Sequence — Fledgling, Saltation, Ghost Ship, Dragon Ship.  Not only did she need to deal with a main character who ages during the course of four books, but she was the lucky narrator who got the brand-new novel on her to-do list.
