SFFaudio News

SFFaudio’s Make An Audiobook Win An Audiobook Challenge #2A little publicity can go a long way – here’s proof. That interview with me on PodioMedia Chat |MP3| got heard by the folks at The Texas Radio Theatre Company. And that got them all fired up over the idea of the 2nd Annual SFFaudio Challenge – and so they’ve staked a claim for themselves…

And it’s a suitably Texas-sized project…

The Texas Radio Theatre Company is taking on…

Lone Star Planet (AKA A Planet For Texans) by John Joseph McGuire and H. Beam Piper!

Lone Star Planet by John Joseph McGuire and H. Beam Piper

Texas Radio Theatre member, Reg Platt, will be narrating!

This novel was the Winner of a Prometheus Award for Best Classic Libertarian SF Novel. It is a tongue-in-cheek tale featuring a planet full of Texans whose dinosaur-sized cattle have to be herded with tanks, and whose system of government derives its character from H.L. Mencken’s essay The Malevolent Jobholder. Plus it has some damn cool cover art…

Now, if we can only find an English speaking narrator from Iceland to record Space Viking

  1. Yup! That sounds cooler than cattle mooin’ on American Idol. [sorry about that]. That Fantastic Universe cover is by Virgil Finlay. Finlay was the best interior SF illustrator. Not one of the best, but THE BEST. Some of his covers are classic, while most don’t measure up to his interior art. This one I have to say is one of his better covers. Not classic, but durn good!

  2. By they way, Reg also is working on the NEW Schlock Audio projects too.

    I’m not sure when he’ll get started, but it should be pretty soon after he’s through with a play he’s in… (I’m working with him in a stage production of MARVIN’S ROOM – at the Contemporary Theatre of Dallas)
