Blade Runner Audio Novel

I have been looking everywhere for an audio novel version of Blade Runner, any of the Jetter sequels and.or DADOES. But in all cases no luck :( The only version of Blade Runner I have found thus far is in German (which sadly I don't speak!).

Can anyone help as I would really like to find these audio novels for purchase or download :(

Thanks and fingers crossed

Have you tried Amazon or Ebay for Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Thanks for the suggestion Andy and the link. I'm probably being picky but I was hoping to get it on CD rather than cassette as I don' have a cassette player anymore..... I have trawled the Net a few times but to no avail thusfar :(

Audio version of Blade Runner...couldn't you just put the DVD on and listen to it?

I borrowed the Blade Runner CD audio set from the library (yes, they changed the name, but it's still DADOES). Unfortunately they chose the worst narrator in the history of recorded books to read it. Scott B sounds like this wimpy mama's boy, overemoting every word and pause, and he manages to completely wreck the experience.

:lol: I've had the CDs ever since they released them...but haven't listened to them yet! I must say...the first audio book of DADoES was good. Only thing...it is abridged.

Narrated by: Matthew Modine and Calista Flockhart

Not Blade Runner, but some alternative Philip K. Dick audio...

"Martian Time-Slip" (complete unabridged novel) and the unabridged short story "The Golden Man" (TGM inspired the movie "Next"). Read by Grover Gardner. 8 cds.

I just borrowed it from the public library. Great yarns and a fine reading performance.

Me2. Purchased them as soon as they hit the shelf and have not once listened to them.

:lol:

I know Scott Brick does an awesome job on the new classic Dune audiobooks though.

As you are probably aware by now Doc has an attitude problem...

I love recorded books, and have also had my own radio show on a funky FM station in Seattle, and done some pick up work at an Astoria FM station. I also cut carts for a pirate doo-wop FM station, doing all the funny voices, but that's another story.

Anyway, Scott Brick makes me want to run from the room screaming whenever I hear his voice. It's even worse than listening to Garrison Keillor (sp?) attempt to sing. (The man has no concept of pitch.)

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, 'eh? :evil:
