Clockwork Angels audiobook narrated by Neil Peart
3:22PM EST | comments |

UPDATE - 6/21@8:29AM: Kevin J. Anderson posted the following regarding the audiobook yesterday to his blog:

With the novel-and the audiobook-due to be released at the beginning of September, to coincide with the launch of Rush's Clockwork Angels tour, we had no time to lose. Before Neil could read the audio, we had to get all the editing finished on the prose, all the corrections made, all the last-minute fine-tuning done. And we had to wrap up before Rush began their intense rehearsals for the tour.

I received the final galley pages of the novel to proofread, while Neil went into the studio to record the audiobook, and I tried to stay one day ahead of him so I could send in corrections and sentence changes before he recorded the words. I received email reports from him every day, telling me Our Hero's progress across the steampunk landscapes of Albion, Poseidon City, Atlantis, and the Seven Cities, his encounters with the Watchmaker, the Anarchist, the Wreckers...all while I was up in Seattle with Brian Herbert brainstorming the intricate plot for MENTATS OF DUNE. My head was in two universes (not counting the real one) but every night I took a few hours before bed to proofread as much as possible, send in more corrections...and we finally got it done.

I can't wait to hear it myself, but since I've read the novel six times in the past three months, I think I'll let the imagination-dust settle for a little bit! ...
