Audiobook narrator Mark Douglas Nelson sent in a photo of his recording studio. Here’s how he describes it:

You can’t see the electronics behind the music stand, but there’s an Apogee Duet interface and PreSonus BlueTube preamp back there. Until very recently I printed out all my copy, but now I’ve been experimenting with reading off an iPad (a used, first-generation model I got on discount). The mic’s an MXL VO-1A “Harlan Hogan”. The laptop is a MacBook Pro with an aftermarket SSD. The walls are double-wall sheetrock with “Green Glue” soundproofing gunk in-between.

His latest narration is a Bill Pronzini short story collection that’s just gone up on Audible.com, it’s entitled Night Freight.

My first Nameless detective audiobook experience was about twenty years ago. But I haven’t been keeping up. The Nameless stories are old fashioned PI tales, with a kind of everyman protagonist working the mostly unkind streets of San Fransisco. If you haven’t heard of the Nameless private detective check out the excellent ThrillingDetective.com page dedicated to Bill Pronzini’s anonymous dick. Then, to get you started check out the new FREE audiboook about nameless. Produced by AudioGo (what used to be called BBC Audiobooks America [and Chivers Audio before that]), I’ve huffduffed it too.

Later, as he ponders the case, a car tries to drive him off the road. Will nameless survive this attempt on his life and solve the case?
