Dr. James J. Campanella, the wonderful narrator of the wonderful The Merchant And The Alchemist’s Gate at StarShipSofa, has just premiered Lester Dent’s The Man of Bronze bookcast on his own podcast! Here’s the scoop:
In honor of the 75th anniversary of the first publication of the legendary pulp novel The Man of Bronze by Lester Dent, we will be presenting an audio bookcast of the novel starting May 9, 2008. Doc Savage, the hero of the novel, is the archetype for almost every major literary and film hero of the 20th Century including Superman, Batman, James Bond, and Buckaroo Banzai. Despite there being several radio shows of Doc over the last 70 years, this will be the first time that The Man of Bronze will be presented complete and unabridged.
Doc Jim sez:
“I’ve started with an introduction and history of the characters, author, and book– next week I will continue with the actual beginning of the story itself. The bookcast will be ‘dramatically enhanced with sound effects’ which is something I usually only edit into juvenile stories.”
