The Way of Kings, Future Audio

July 1, 2010

For several weeks now (and by no means “news” to 90% of you) Tor.com has had the prelude, prologue, and the first 3-chapters of Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings available to read, but by way of a brief update, author Brandon Sanderson has made mention on his blog that at least “one of the upcoming previews” will likely be available in audio form, as well:

Remember how last year Tor.com previewed the second chapter of the audiobook of THE GATHERING STORM? Well, at least one of the upcoming previews of THE WAY OF KINGS on Tor.com is going to be in audio form, and Wheel of Time audiobook fans should be pleased with who you hear reading the chapters.

So, not only do we get to preview more of the book but we’ll also be able to do so from the comfort of our favorite electronic devicesĀ  (as read by someone many fans will certainly appreciate) — which means I’ll be able to multi-task and enjoy it while trying to accomplish the umpteen other things I’ve got to get done.

And, as with most of his releases, The Way of Kings will ultimately be available in complete audio book form, so many of you can look forward to that as well. Great news all around, and thanks to Brandon Sanderson and Tor for all their efforts to reach their fans.
