On-Sale Today! Yes, in part, we just wanted to post this image again*, but mostly, today is the day that Warren Ellis’s Dead Pig Collector becomes an audiobook, available now at all of your favorite digital audiobook retailers, brought to you in the dulcet tones of Wil Wheaton, AKA @wilw, AKA Wesley Crusher of Star Trek: The Next Generation, AKA proprietor of wilwheaton.net, AKA maker of offers Warren Ellis cannot refuse.
You can listen to a little bit of it here:
As Warren explained to Publishers Weekly, the audio edition didn’t exactly follow the traditional path to publication:
“This audiobook was Wil Wheaton’s idea. He loved Dead Pig Collector so much that he insisted there be an audiobook and made veiled threats about hammers and bleach if he didn’t get to read it himself. Wil’s been a good friend for years and a terrific actor for much longer, and also lives near places where bodies can be quietly burned, so we really had no choice but to agree.”
We won’t discuss any threats (veiled or otherwise) that we may or may not have received, but certainly we’re glad that everyone could agree to make this fine audiobook just in time for the holidays. And for true cheapskates, let us take this moment to remind you that the original edition of Dead Pig Collector is still available for LESS THAN ONE U.S. DOLLAR.
