Now that WotC is releasing backlist books in audio format, an updated list of available audiobooks would be a great addition to the Candlekeep forum. To start things off, here's my 1/8/13 releases:

Evermeet
Tangled Webs
Windwalker
Best of the Realms Book III: The Stories of Elaine Cunningham

(Not sure why Daughter of the Drow isn't on the list, but I'm looking into it.)

There are also two anthology releases today:

Realms of Infamy
Realms of the Arcane

This is a good idea. I am going to sticky this thread.

That's really great news. Hopefully this new job comes through and I can listen to these audiobooks as part of my commute.

Thanks for posting (and sticking).

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

At least Evermeet and the two anthologies are available on itunes as well.

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

I'm particularly happy to learn that both Evermeet and Elaine's Best of ... compilation have received the audio-book treatment. This will make for some rather entertaining "audio-reads" on the train ride to work!

And checking in on iTunes a bit later, I find Tangled Webs and Windwalker as well.

This is a good resource, but the search results are not as complete as they should be; for example, Evermeet doesn't come up with "Forgotten Realms" search. They may be others missing, but I can't tell.

Moral of the story: If you don't find a particular FR book with a general FR search, try searching on the author or title's name.

I know Shadowbane and Shadowbane: Eye of Justice are both up there. My characters have faintly British accents, though Shadowbane himself has more of a BATMAN accent.

Realms of the Elves[/i] is also available, which offers a previously unknown chance to get hold of it since it went out of print. To my knowledge, it's not available as an ebook.

Cheers

Batman's snarling whisper is an accent? Or do you mean the Adam West version?

Eat lots of garlic - it keeps the elves and vampires away.
Don't stick your sword into dragons, you just don't know where they've been.
Avoid stepping on halflings. They stick to your boots, will smell awful, and are impossible to scrape off.
Ah, of course. Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

West's Batman-voice was more a suave-whisper. Bale relied more heavily on the grittiness of the snarling-Frank Milleresque-Batman-voice.

Kevin Conroy's Animated Batman is probably my favourite "voice" for the character.

How could Erik possibly expect a Candlekeep scroll to stay on the rails after mentioning Batman?

The Canadian iTunes Store has pages and pages of FR audiobooks. Average price seems to be around $25. Great sound quality too. Is audible better because it has the one free download with membership or ?

The newest original world fiction from Paul Kemp (Hammer and the Blade) is also up at a steal for $11 or so.

I've really enjoyed Jonathan Davies' narration with some of the Star Wars audiobooks I've tried. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading were also very strong for the two or three Wheel of Time books I've listened to.

I prefer to read, obviously, but for those long commutes it really helps. My only issue (speaking about the SW EU - haven't tried FR yet - is that those recorded prior to 2008 were abridged! Cuts something like 10 hours of story out, on average).

Would love to hear what others have experienced or advice on series, etc is.

Probably you all know this and only I didn't get the memo:
They are currently offering the 'Legend of Drizzt' anthology (read by all-star cast) for Free at audible. :)
