Dan Dare on CD

Voyage to Venus Audio CDThe first Dan Dare story, Voyage to Venus is to be released on CD on 1 May 2008 by Orion Audiobooks.

The Orion website claim this is "The first Dan Dare story to be created especially for audio." Well, it's certainly the first to be released on CD as the vesrion broadcast on Radio 4 in 1990 (and which is occasionally rebroadcast on BBC7) was never released commerically.

Priced at £9.99 and running at 2.5 hours there is no word yet on who will be reading the story.

The cover (show here) shows the ship that Lero uses to travel to Earth in the Man from Nowhere story, which was the, er, sixth Dan Dare story. Hey, ho.

Here's hoping the graphic becomes a bit more relevant to the story by the time it's published.
