Pathfinder Tales

SO I find that I have very little time to read novels anymore, but I do listen to Audio books a lot while driving.

Have you looked into this? Is there a possibility this could happen?

This was discussed at Paizocon. I heard about it on the 3.5 sanctuary podcast recording of the "Future of Pathfinder Tales" session.

If I remember correctly, James Sutter said that they are interested in putting out audiobooks, but want them to be quality audiobooks. They could easily put out a sub-par quality auidobook; they have had offers to have them recorded. But they want to maintain the high quality that fans have come to expect from this company.

I'm sure James Sutter could tell you more.

Actually, it just did. Check out the audio of James L. Sutter's "Faithful Servants" here on the StarShipSofa podcast!

I just want to "second" this idea!

I am listening to "Faithful Servents" as I write this, I love it.

It's not Pathfinder Tales, but if anybody's interested, I just had another fantasy story made into a free podcast--it's a noir story about lycanthrope ghettos over on PodCastle:

"Ties of Silver"


Working two jobs and going to school, 90% of my fun reading is in the audio book format.. I really urge Paizo to promote this format!

I'm in the same boat, actually. We would dearly love to do audiobook versions of Pathfinder Tales, but it's a *really* expensive process that we're not set up for, so we need to wait until someone awesome offers to partner with us. We're working on cultivating those relationships, though! :D

Crowd Source it? I'll take every 2nd, 5th and 2193rd sentence. Any one else?

I'll take the words "fire" and "thoroughly."

Which glutton for punishment wants the words "a," "and," "the," and the ever popular "what?"


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

I'll take "there" and "they're" but not "their."

I'll also take "two" and "too," but leave "to" to someone else. I don't want to hog ALL the fun words.

+1 for Pathfinder audiobooks. I'm an Audible subcriber myself and get an audiobook each month which occupies me on the commute to work daily. I would really love to hear some of the greatest narrators in the business(in my opinion)such as Toby Longworth, John Lee or Peter Joyce narrate some pathfinder tales.

If you are interested in hearing some work from these guys check out: The Gregg Mandell trilogy by Peter F Hamilton (Toby Longworth), Absolution Gap, House of Suns, Redemption Ark (John Lee) by Alastair Reynolds or the Demon War saga by Raymond E Fiest (Peter Joyce).

Through being a fan of Raymond E Fiest caused me to start up an Audible subcription in 2009 and I havent looked back. Since I started listening to audio books I think I read probably 3 paperbacks in the time, I just don't have the time for them anymore : (

Here's how I solved the dilemma of sneaking reading time into a busy schedule:

I live 1.5 miles from my office. I read while I walk to work. I hold the book at almost arm's length so that I can see hazards (dog poop, cross streets, other pedestrians) from my peripheral vision. I have found that I cannot read books that require a lot of thinking (like Shakespeare). But the Pathfinder Tales seem to be just fine. I have found that Paperbacks are best, as long as they are not too thick, example: George RR Martin's books would hurt my hand too much to hold.

I'm currently reading The Green Mile by Stephen King, and that is about the thickest book that I can read while in transit.

I'm also an Audible fan--I "read" audiobooks while commuting, exercising, getting ready in the morning, etc. It lets me get way more story into my life than I might otherwise. Though I always still have a paper book going as well...
