Good afternoon and welcome! Following fairly hot on the heels of the earlier June release of MW Craven's 'The Curator', is the latest audio book from The Black Library, which I had the pleasure of recording with producer Tara Rawson, a couple of weeks before lockdown. I had previously worked with Tara on the short audio drama, The Revelation of The Word, a sample of which appears above, and we had great fun together in the studio, recording a third Fabius Bile story, whom I have to admit, is one of my very favourite Balck Library characters.
So without further prevarication, here are some details of the third of my Fabius Bile projects:
Fabius Bile Manflayer
As his Homo Novus project comes to fruition, Fabius Bile faces a new threat - the dreaded haemonculi of the Thirteen Scars. Can he marshal his forces to protect his creations, or are the New Men doomed to death?
In the centuries since his return from Commorragh,
Fabius Bile has distanced himself from the affairs of friend and foe,
content only to oversee the cruel evolution of his New Men. But when his
creations are threatened by the monstrous haemonculi of the Thirteen
Scars, the Manflayer is forced to seek out new allies and old enemies
alike in an effort to preserve all that he has built. Homo Novus must
survive...even if Fabius Bile must die to ensure it.
Written by Josh Reynolds, Produced by Tara Rawson & Narrated by John Banks
Audio book length: 13 hours - 40 minutes
