I'd love to see this - I'm personally addicted to Audible.com, as are several other Paizonians - but unfortunately audiobooks cost a LOT of money to do right (one of the reasons they're so expensive). If somebody big approaches us someday with a quality offer, I suspect we might go for it, but I seriously doubt Paizo will be producing its own audiobooks anytime soon.

(Of course, if Lisa DOES decide to build a recording studio, I'll be in there every weekend anyway... maybe I can be fiction editor and chief sound engineer....)

You could just do what my girlfriend does, have me read to her every night before bed. You just have to supply your own personal reader.

Can't I just call you. What time does your girlfriend go to bed? She won't mind sharing.

Sorry, sharing is against the rules.

Me too! We're actually making some potential progress on that front right now... Stay tuned!

I "read" way more audiobooks then physically read books. If you team up with audible, you will get my credits every month!

I think the progress in question was the big finish audiodramas

I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Sutter's comment was made only a week or so ago and the Big Finish products were announced some time ago and are already currently available - not what I would call worthy of a comment like "making some potential progress on that front right now... Stay tuned!" only made about a week ago.

Plus, the Big Finish stuff covers the Rise of the Runelords AP, while the whole point of this thread is clearly asking for audiobooks of the Pathfinder novels.

My take away from Sutter's comment is that Paizo is "making some potential progress" on the audiobooks of the Pathfinder novels front ...

There was also a comment made in one of the threads about the audio dramas that audiobooks and audio dramas are really very different things. (This is why, for instance, audio dramas (not just at Paizo, but elsewhere as well) tend to cost more than audiobooks, certainly when you take into account the number of hours of audio.)

I'd be interesting in some of the novels as audio books. I really have no interested in the Legends line, both because I'm pretty sick of the Paizo Iconics and because I'm just not interested in a product that will spoil something I may (or am, or will) play.

You're right, for some reason I thought his comment was timestamped 2013
