if you check in with this website now and then you can see the current  
titles in production and their tentative release dates.  at first  
audible was slow to get them on the their site, but now Nabokov is  
showing up more quickly.  I also talked to a person from the  
audiobookstand site and they gave me months for release of other  
titles not listed yet, notably Ada, and Transparent Things late next  
year.  It appears that they do intend to narrate all of VN by the end  
of next year.  You can order cds or mp3 discs directly from them as  
well. I have listened to Mary, some Short Stories, Bend Sinister, and  
currently in KQKn and have noticed a few things that slipped by me or  
that I've forgotten.

 I would be curious to know how people react to the wordplay etc.  
without seeing it, and how well people remember what they've heard in  
relation to the Ebbinghouse "curve of forgetting" whereby people lose  
80% of what they learn/hear (?) within 24 hours.


once in a while click on VN's name and refresh the list and new titles  
and dates pop up.

Also in regards to KQKn, has anyone remarked on the 1st paragraph of  
Chapter 2?

"...Another awakening, but perhaps not yet the final one. ...this is a  
false awakening, being merely the next layer of your dream, as if you  
were rising up...Is this the final reality, or just a new deceptive  

I left a lot out, but this, along with mentioning the railway station  
and trains, made me wonder if Christopher Nolan read this before  
Inception! This is almost the opening of the film not to mention its  
premise.  The similarities leaped out at me and I called a friend and  
read it to him, first asking if it sounded familiar.  I'm very struck  
by how much dreams and dreaming are woven into the novels, I'd  
forgotten that.
