Booktaker by Bill Pronzini

Aural Noir: Online Audio

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 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.

  1. Thanks for posting the Bill Pronzini story. B.P. is one of the few modern writers who has the same feel about his stories as Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett.
    For people who like the Philip Marlowe (audio) stories here a link to all the stories.
    Ed Bishop stars as Philip Marlowe. The password is: dramapage16
    Is it possible for me to upload the stories to SFFAudio?
    You can reply at [email protected]
    Have fun with the stories.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Jesse, I’ve posted about it at the Pulp Reader. I occasionally read Pronzini’s Nameless Detective yarns in Ellery Queen Magazine. The audio was a lot of fun. I didn’t realize Bill had so many audiobooks of his stuff!
