Free Sherlock Holmes Audiobooks

sherlock_holmes_4_web.jpgJust in time for the holiday release of a new Sherlock Holmes adaptation, AudioFile magazine will give readers a free collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories on audiobooks.

To access the collection, readers need to sign up for the Audiofile newsletter between Dec. 16 and 29. In months past, the multimedia series has also included listeners’ guides to Agatha Christie, Edgar Allan Poe, Neil Gaiman, and Terry Pratchett. The free stories will be read by award winning producer David Timson, including the stories “Silver Blaze,” “The Adventure of the Stockbroker’s Clerk,” and “The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plan.”

AudioFile publisher Robin Whitten explained: “With the 150th anniversary of Arthur Conan Doyle‘s birth this year and the release of the Sherlock Holmes film starring Robert Downey, Jr., it’s an appropriate time to encourage a new generation of fans to discover the voices of Sherlock Holmes … the atmospheric settings, intellectual puzzles and intriguing characters of Arthur Conan Doyle make perfect audio listening.”
