EVE Online has some amazing fiction written for it. But these days, it's not easy to spare time to sit down and read. But there are times when reading is impractical but listening is not. For those times, the audiobook was invented. And now two enterprising capsuleers have taken it upon themselves to produce audio versions of the EVE Chronicles.

Read all about Tryaz and Zendane's hard work in the latest Community Spotlight.

Great job to the both of you! Big smile

Having spent some time listening to both of your work i can say that you have a very different reading style, which is good since that way people can listen to whichever one they feel more comfortable with.
I can say this as a person that normally never listens to audio books (i actually prefer to read! Lol ), but i have found that with the chronicles its simply..easier to focus while listening to the recordings and i have been enjoying them a lot Smile

So, big thank you to the both of you!

How are groups chosen for the Community Spotlight? I keep expecting Red Frog to show up in one of these. There have been ones for new, barely year old corporations and some groups I've never heard of in my 4 yrs playing. Struck me as odd.

Anyway...

I will check into this for sure. I have been considering audio books as a good companion to boring indy jobs like mining for some time.

Thank you! That particular Chronicle is one of my favorites, and at some point in the future I'd like to re-record it. Now that I've gained experience both in pacing my reading and editing the audio result, I think it would come out even better.

If you haven't had a chance to listen to the other recordings, please do and let me know your feedback. Episodes 0 through 3 were recorded on older equipment and you'll find a noticeable increase in the audio quality with episode 4 onward.

Enjoy!
