The Man of Bronze returns!

It’s been mentioned here before, but I’ll mention it again — this year is Doc Savage’s 75th anniversary. And in celebration, James Cavanaugh is beginning to “bookcast” the very first Doc Savage pulp novel, Lester Dent’s great The Man of Bronze. James reports that his narration will he dramatically enhanced with sound effects. Sounds cool to me. So far, a ten-minute introduction has been posted, and I assume chapters will appear week to week. Look for the podcast here.

Mark Butler did this sort of thing long ago for a different Doc novel (Birds of Death).

The difference, Joel, seems to be that Cavanaugh is offering this book as a free downloable podcast.

Butler's audiobook is free, too (although to protect himself from legal problems, he asks that you only access it if you already own a copy of the book, but it's basically on the honor system; for the same legal reasons, he has to not be making money off it).
