Title: Audio books planned?
Post by SDC on 09. Jul 2011 at 19:36

I read the e-book thread with interest, and I'd be happy to buy the complete set in Kindle format when it becomes available, but I'd probably enjoy a complete set of AUDIO books even more. I first encountered Bandy in high school, and laughed all the way through the first 3 volumes (which were all I knew about, until recently). Now that everyone and their dog has an Ipod, I think an audio book compilation of Bandy's adventures would be a big seller. Does anyone know if something along these lines is possible in the near future?

There aren't any immediate plans for audio books of the series (the CNIB has produced some, but they're restricted to the blind/visually disabled).

If we could find an audio book publisher interested in doing the Bandy books, we'd certainly be willing to discuss it with them.

There was a CBC dramatisation in the 1970s that was recorded on vinyl, but I only know of three copies in Canadian libraries, so it would likely be difficult to get ahold of:
