MOONSTONE MONDAY-RADIO ARCHIVE ANNOUNCES PULP AUDIOBOOK SERIES
NEW AUDIO PRODUCTION DIVISION WILL DO DOC SAVAGE, THE SPIDER, SECRET AGENT “X”
Spokane, Wash., April 15, 2011-Radio Archives today announced a new series of audiobooks, based on favorite pulp novels of the 1930s and 1940s. The audiobooks will begin Radio Archives’ new line of original audio productions based on classic pulp fiction.
The first series of audiobooks will be the seven Doc Savage novels penned by pulp author and Doc Savage authority Will Murray. Future series will include the exploits of pulp heroes The Spider and Secret Agent “X“, as well as other pulp fiction properties. The new audio productions will utilize the talents of some of the top voice actors and recording talents in the United States. The first audiobook release is scheduled for June 2011.
“We’re thrilled to have Will Murray’s excellent Doc Savage novels as the lead-off offerings in this exciting new series,” said Harlan Zinck, president of Radio Archives. “The audiobooks and other new audio productions will nicely complement our classic radio and pulp reprint offerings.”
Murray’s Doc Savage stories were published in the 1990’s and were the first new Doc Savage stories in more than 40 years. “Creating audiobooks of these extensions of the Doc Savage canon brings a new dimension to this classic pulp character,” Murray said.
The new audiobook line, which will be released in digital stereo, will be produced and directed by audio producer Roger Rittner, who created The Adventures of Doc Savage full-cast radio series in 1985, available in a deluxe CD set from Radio Archives. “I’m delighted to be able to bring the superb quality of Radio Archives productions to these exciting stories,” said Rittner, who has a 30-year history of both recorded and live classic radio and audio productions.
