The Murder Mysteries mystery deepens...

I pointed out to Harper Collins Audio that there was a cover to the Murder Mysteries Audio that I hadn't seen, didn't like and wasn't true. They said, Well, it's not ours. We're still in negotiation with the Sci Fi Channel for the rights. They've been really slow in getting us contracts. And besides, we wouldn't DO that stuff, and you'd see what was going on every step of the way.

Which made a lot of sense. So I went back to the Amazon page and discovered that the audio version they list as coming out in January is being done by Fantastic Audio.

And, from their catalogue entry up at Publisher's Group West, it looks like Fantastic Audio are planning on bringing out the original Dove audio version of Murder Mysteries (on which I'd let them put the ANGELS & VISITATIONS readings of 'Chivalry' and 'Troll Bridge' ).

My suspicion right now is that there's a left hand at the Sci Fi Channel that does not know what the right hand is doing. And that there are people who are going to have headaches and paperwork in order to sort this all out. I sincerely hope I'm not one of them.
