Not only is Amazon.com carrying the A Dance with Dragons unabridged audio book (still no word on who’ll be reading it, although GRRM has made it clear that Roy Dotrice is his very strong preference), but it looks like April 12th will see the arrival of a re-packaged set of unabridged CDs for A Game of Thrones (less the article), featuring the TV show tie-in box art. Best of all, not only will it be available in the US, but it looks like Amazon.co.uk has a pre-order in place as well.
If you’re a fan of audio books, this is definitely one worth getting, not least because it netted Mr. Dotrice a Guinness-recognized world record for the huge number of characters he voiced in an individual and distinct fashion.
In other news, it looks like Voyager UK is preparing to release special edition of A Game of Thrones on July 12th, in conjunction with the release of A Dance with Dragons. The notable thing? Well, besides the price at £40, it’s a hardcover… which Voyager hasn’t produced of A Game of Thrones since the initial edition back in 1996. A sort of 15th anniversary edition? Perhaps.
