Now available for your listening pleasure, 9hrs 41min of glorious Milton. Oh, this HAS been a long time coming. At the beginning of January, I posted that I’d snapped up the last section — unfortunately this didn’t turn out to be quite true, since another chapter was part-read, but then had to be orphanned. Still, it’s done now, and you can find me in the second half of Book Two and Book Four.

I confess I don’t actually listen to that many audiobooks, but I am going to have to queue this one up, I can see. The bits I recorded were just *so* much fun.
Also just into the catalogue, but really not in the Paradise Lost league by, oh, several thousand lines, the little poem I recorded the other week to try and get back into the swing of things after the long voice-savaging cold. Wrinkles, by Walter Savage Landor is short and lovely. All the authorly SLs are fine by me, so it was nice to put something of his into audio.
I can’t say as it really helped with the recording side of things; I’m still feeling incomprehensibly stymied. Probably just a phase…
