I am almost done with Scott Brick's audiobooks of the First Chronicles, and he did a wonderful job. It makes my commute fly by. I can't find the second chronicles anywhere. Any help?

They don't exist... at least, not yet. As far as I understand, Brinks would love to do these also... but it's really a labor of love. As far as the First Chronicles were concerned, it was Brink's initiative that brought them about. DelRey publishings doesn't care to support it, so Brinks has to do it on his own. As a result, he'd have to find spare time and resources to do this.

I've recently listened to the First Chronicles (And then Runes and FR) on my commute as well. He does an awesome job. I ahve his original Frankenstein as well, which is also masterfully done.

Scott Brick says he does intend to do them at some point.

I've got the second chrons on audio files, read by someone by the name of John Chancer.
He's pretty good.
I'd like to eventually hear Scott Brick's version for comparison ..

Are Scott Brink's 1st Chrons audiobooks complete and unabridged. It would have been a massive undertaking but this is the way I would like them. I hate the idea that hunks of Donaldsons prose would be sacrificed on the grounds of brevity. Also - where can I get the damn things and what format do they come in. For me it has to be cd's or nothing. I haven't moved into the MP3 age yet - damn, it's all I can do to get my old head round the simple laptop I have in front of me.

At the bottom of the forums page, there's a link to Brink's website where you can get his Donaldson readings. As far as I know, they are complete and unabridged (as well as being endorsed by the Man himself), I also believe they come in MP3 and CD formats.

Yes. CDs are MP3, but, it's easy enough to burn your own CDs, I knew nothing of MP3 and was able to make my own CDs from the MP3 CDs for the First Chronicles plus Fatal Revenant

PostPosted: Mon Feb 07, 2011 4:30 pm    Post subject: Gold Gold Wielder - Audio Book - Please Help Reply with quote

I am looking for a download for the "White Gold Wielder" audio book - the third book in the second Chronicles. Can anyone please help me? This audio book is no longer in print so asking for a download of this is not illegal. I have already purchased the books, but don't feel like reading the last book. I found some torrents but they are all dead. Can someone either point me to a download or just send it to me?

Thanks.

I've got a torrent going, that looks promising, slower than molassass with only 1 out of 2 seeds, but it is internet rush hour. Anyways, if it works, I'll let you know. If I was to start it again, I'd do a book at a time. Files are loading though, so far.

Well, after 5 hours, it looked like it had failed, but, I left it open, and when I got up 6 hours later, it apears to have completed successfully. I've clicked on several of the files and they play and My UTorrent Control Panel says it completed successfully

I put in the search term in Google:
second chronicles thomas covenant audio torrent

And selected the one at the bottom: http://www.torrenthound.com/hash/4aa7c52c61bfd6d57a795068a5e6858dafd4fe25/torrent-info/Stephen-R-Donaldson--The-Second-Chronicles-of-Thomas-Covenant

It says no seeders, but, it apparently did work, just real slow getting started

From the GI:

Quote:
Anonymous: Do you have any updated information on when Scott Brick will publish the audio versions of the Second Chronicles?

As far as I know, Scott Brick has no plans to tackle the Second Chronicles. I have the impression that he can't afford to. He has to spend his own money, and the sales of the first trilogy don't justify the expense.

(03/22/2011)


This saddens me. I'm a fan of Brick's audio versions of the First Chronicles, and I was really looking forward to Second Chronicles.

But wait....hope is on the way!

From today's News:

Quote:
Scott Brick has just informed me that he is currently negotiating with Ballantine Books to obtain the audio rights for "The Wounded Land," "The One Tree," and "White Gold Wielder." No doubt there will still be a long wait until audio books are actually available; but progress is being made. In the meantime, readers who aren't sure where to get Brick's readings of other "Covenant" titles can find them at:

Yea, I'm about finished with The Wounded Land, it's nice to have something, but, it's no work of art, like it will be when Scott Brick gets them done. And of course, I will get them from Scott Brick, as I have First Chronicles and Fatal Revenant.

Actually, there WAS an audiobook version of "The Wounded Land" by Terri Hayes-Sayles back in the 80's

http://www.worldcat.org/title/wounded-land/oclc/219966929?referer=di&ht=edition

I've not listened to it and have no idea if it's any good. I'm in the same boat. Just finished Scott's versions and am wondering if I should go get the old one. Not that I don't know what happens as I read them 25 years ago but I loved how well Scott did the first series.
