That would be William Dufris, who’ll be the voice of Percival’s Planet in its audio book form for Tantor Media.  Dufris, as his bio gives us, “has been nominated nine times as a finalist for the APA’s Audie Award and has garnered twenty-one Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which also named him one of the Best Voices at the End of the Century, as well as one of the Best Voices of the Year in 2008 and 2009.”

Excellent! Have fun reading all those words! Certainly there are many of them!

Among Dufris’ many credits is the audio book version of Woken Furies, the third installment of the superb Takeshi Kovacs series by Richard K. Morgan.  The first in Morgan’s series, Altered Carbon, is so good it must be read to be believed; it’s the book I’m always urging on people as what you gotta pick up next. And those who are true and pure of heart, and who like a little 25th-century-Philip-Marlowe-from-space-reboot, always love it.
