Audio Sample of A Face in the Crowd Audiobook

Simon and Schuster Audio have announced the audiobook version of A Face in the Crowd.  Set for release on August 21st, the original ebook marks the second baseball-themed collaboration between Stephen and Stewart O'Nan, read by Craig Wasson.

Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers’s past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier...

Blood In Your Ears: Examining King's Audio Readings

Kevin Quigley wrote an eBook called Blood In Your Ears examining all of the audiobooks that King has read himself.  It's $0.99 at all eBook stores linked below.

Enter the recorded world of Stephen King, where he not only writes your nightmares, he actually reads them to you, too!

BLOOD IN YOUR EARS examines everything Stephen King has given his voice to, from his early DARK TOWER novels and his audio-only collection BLOOD AND SMOKE to his recording of "Stand By Me" with the Rock Bottom Remainders and his role as Abraham Lincoln on Sarah Vowell's audiobook, Assassination Vacation. In addition to the books Stephen King has recorded, BLOOD IN YOUR EARS also delves into the Stephen King work of audio superstar Frank Muller.

Rounded out with an examination of dramatic recordings of King work, King's Top Ten Best Audiobooks, and a list of every Stephen King audio title ever recorded, BLOOD IN YOUR EARS is your one-stop guide to answering the question, "Heard any good books lately?"

You can buy it in ePub and Mobi formats at Cemetary Dance.

Or at Amazon HERE.

The Apple iBookstore.

Or on Nook.

Review of the Audiobook Version of Wind Through the Keyhole

I recently listened to the audiobook version of Wind, after reading the hardcover, and loved every minute of it.  There is something that I love about an author reading their own work.  I was going to write a detailed review but found one on Fearnet that was incredibly complete, including reviews of King's reading of the other Dark Tower Books (he only read the first 3, which were re-read in later editions by Frank Muller).

King's love for the book was enough to bring him out of semi-retirement…as an audiobook reader.  While he recently provided narration for "Harvey's Dream," a short story from his 2008 collection, King hasn't done a full-on audiobook since 2000's On Writing, and hasn't read a Dark Tower novel since The Waste Lands in 1991 – over two decades ago!  So why return now?  The answers may lie in the past.

Check out the excellent review by Kevin Quigley over at Fearnet.com.
