A Paradox Entertainment representative has posted this on the Conan.com forums:
We are glad to announce that the popular Robert E. Howard series published by Random House/Del Rey is coming as audiobooks from Tantor Audio. First out, starting in June 2009 with one release each month, are the three Conan books [The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian, The Bloody Crown of Conan, The Conquering Sword of Conan], followed by “Bran Mak Morn: The Last King“, “The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard“, “Kull: Exile of Atlantis” and “The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane“.
Details go on to say that Todd McLaren will be the narrator. Here’s a sample of his voice |MP3|. Plans are for the audiobooks to be in the cd, mp3-cd and “mp3 download (online only)” formats. That last seems rather unlikely as Tantor will probably be selling direct downloads through Audible.com (which doesn’t offer MP3).
