I’m just an old junkie, from the old days of serialized earthcore. It pains me to scott offloading his voice acting. Just my opinion though. I know I’m basically alone, and I’m fine with that. Phil wasn’t terrible with pandemic, but I’d have loved to listen to the story with Scott’s special way with his characters, that’s where this stems from. Id also like to reiterate my request for a version of the old earthcore, to stave off my hunger/compare to the new version. Did that with nocturnal too.
I must admit, that I too am addicted to Scott’s reading style, that being said, I can’t wait to hear the new Earthcore regardless of who’s reading it.
I can tell you without reservation that it won’t be Scott doing this audiobook. If Phil is up for it, it will be Phil.
The right way to think about this isn’t “Scott or Phil” but rather “Phil or no audiobook at all”.
We’re opting for a new, clean, updated, awesome version of the new Earthcore, and I hope you’ll give it a try.
By the way, it’s totally broke: the new EARTHCORE is over 70,000 new words, as Scott felt his writing chops back then weren’t up to snuff. So we’re fixing it.
I won’t spoil it for anybody, but in book 5, the Earthcore aliens make an appearance, and you’ll recognize them right away. (Scott, I was giddy when I realized who they were!)
You can read a book whilst riding a Harley, @caret28? That’s gotta take some mad skills….
I am from down state, a troll, lol… fudgie.. if you will.. i am in Trenton, Mi. Grew up in Dearborn. As a matter of fact , my boyfriend and I were just in Black Lake near Cheboygan, I believe that’s your stomping grounds right? We took a Harley trip up there, then to Whitefish point, the Soo Locks and then back down the Black Lake. The best part, he drove the Harley while I rode on the back and read a Scott Sigler novel… that’s how to travel in style!
I’m glad to report we have a little more interest now. Between here & the Facebook group, we’re now up to (6) entrants, (3) from each location. I’ll give it another week and see how many we’re up to then. At present, here’s who I’ve got in the hat:
Junkies from SS.com (please give me your real names ASAP):
Junkies from the Facebook Group:
1 – Dan Lee (nominated by a friend)
2 – Geordon VanTassle
3 – Boyn Dean
If I’m missing anyone, or if you do not want to be in this drawing (especially @raybould_ben & Dan Lee) please let me know immediately and I’ll make the appropriate adjustment.
@caret28: Thank you! So happy I can help make your workday a little better. Where are you from in MI?
Hey there Scott. I am new to your greatness! I am a truck driver, so i listen all day everyday that I am driving. I was so excited to discover you are from Michigan as I also hail from this great mitten state. I absolutely love your work it keeps me entertained and keeps my mind off wanting to kill the morons driving in front of me, apparently they don’t realize that I am a female driving a fuel hauler… anyway keep up the great work , and thanks a lot!!! 😊 oh yeah, the hardcover would be nice too.
Im interested, i would be on hard times, as you say. (US Citizen, but poor xD)
Please, Scott, Don’t have Phil do this book, your voice was one of the reasons I tuned in to Earthcore, you have a way with your characters that Phil cant match, or anyone else for that matter. Please just redo the voice acting yourself. ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ -old southern phrase. On a side topic, does anyone have the original Earthcore available for a re-listen? went back to my trusty Scott Sigler podiobooks.com bookmark to find it magically gone.
As little interest as there’s been, I’m kewl letting any foreign Junkies who want a personalized copy enter. I’m undecided about Junkies in the continental 48 US who already have a copy. Let’s see if we can get a fair pool of European & Canadian interest before 7/24/2015 & I’ll decide then.
