'RAVEN' AUDIO BOOK narrated by DAMIEN MOLONY

Awesome news Molonians...

Damien is narrating his first audio book!

The news we have all been waiting to hear since first ever hearing that Irish voice!

Read all about it below.

 

DAMIEN MOLONY NARRATES NEW AUDIO BOOK ‘RAVEN’ FOR FANTOM FILMS

 

We are thrilled to share the exciting news that Damien is the narrator of upcoming audio book ‘Raven’, announced by Fantom Films today.

The audio book is a novelisation of the 1977 classic children’s TV series by actor / writers Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray, and will be released on CD and as a download this December.

Trevor Ray is best known for writing on Doctor Who in 1969/70 and Jeremy Burnham for 1968/69 cult TV classic The Avengers (in which he also appeared) and Inspector Morse.

 

A brief synopsis of Raven is given on the fantom films website.

 

raven-1

 

The ancient underground caves were in danger — they were going to be filled with atomic waste. But forces were at work to save the sacred ground — forces from another time.

Why did the caves contain mysterious symbols and how did the legend of King Arthur connect with them? What power did Professor Young, the archaeologist have to save the cave complex? And why did the Merlin suddenly appear?

Raven, on probation from Borstal, found himself caught up with these strange powers, and began to realise that the future of the caves depended on him…

 

Having given readings for WordTheatre since 2012 and performed in several radio roles, most recently appearing as the actor reader on a ‘Poetry Please’ Yeats Special, it was only a matter of time before Damien’s much admired voice talent found its outlet in audio books.

We couldn’t happier, and hope it is the first of many!

 

The CD has 5 discs in total and is available for pre-order now. Click here to order for a special lower price until 23 October.

We always said we'd listen to him read the phone book... EVEN BETTER!!!!!!  coolbounce coolbounce coolbounce

OMG, I'm so excited!  When I read "children's book" for some reason I pictured something short.  But it sounds like a bit of young adult magic fantasy (who doesn't like that) and 5 CD's!  That should be at least 5 hours of audio, up to 6 if the format is on regular CD's!  5ish hours of Mr. M painting pictures in my head.  *sigh*

You can pre-order it now, but was there any date when it is released?

I've ordered my copy!
It says it's a December release so I'll call it a birthday/christmas present to myself depending upon when it arrives.
That's a good enough reason as any to buy.

There is no release date yet, but it is going to be one fabulous Christmas!


For those who are not old enough to remember the TV show Raven, here is a little glimpse:

And this is not just any old story DaMo will be voicing... it has its mystical and haunting elements, fabulously engaging.

Before the prologue, the book has an excerpt from Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem 'The Raven'

 

Deep into that darkness peering,
Long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals
Ever dared to dream before...

THE RAVEN
Edgar Allen Poe

I love that poem, one of the most chilling poem I have ever heard. But does this mean Damien will read it in this audiobook??

Jozie, there is just that excerpt of Poe's 'The Raven' before the prologue in the book Damien will be reading. Some audio boks include the prologue, some don't - we will have to wait and see!

I admire your restraint fifi! I'd forgo food, clothiing, anything else to get my hands on this asap!

Amazon has the book listed at a release date of 1 December.... not long at all now then! (I'd recommend buying direct from Fantom Films though.)

Believe me restraint has nothing to do with it and my family get strangely stroppy if I don't feed them.  I need to prioritise my damo expenditure and as this isn't released until December anyway hopefully I won't have to wait too long.....

Sorry fifi I was being tongue in cheek, it was not my intention to upset you. The special pre order lower price offer has ended now anyway, but I hope somehow you can get a copy before Christmas.

No worries, domino.  I'm not upset.. I will get to see Damien on stage in Feb.  And with potentially 5hrs worth of dvd...and 5hrs (ish) of cd to look forward to it's shaping up to be a very happy, damotastic Christmas! smile

Since pre-ordering it would mean I'd get it later due to ship times, I decided to wait for the download option even if it costs full price.  I don't want to delay my Damo-enjoyment. wink
