This month we release Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the undisputed masterpiece of horror writing. In the remote and mysterious location of Transylvania we find the Count – a brutal, powerful and haunting creature, rising up to threaten human life. Bringing together a strong cast, led by David Horovitch as Van Helsing, Naxos AudioBooks follows its widely praised multi-voiced recordings of The Woman in White, The Moonstone and Pamela with Stoker’s popular novel.
We are also releasing the second volume of The Diary of Samuel Pepys. Volume II covers some of the most famous passages in the diary: Pepys witnesses the terrible Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London in the following year, providing an intimate, first-hand account of each event. Read by Leighton Pugh and using the authoritative edition by Robert Latham and William Matthews, this is the only truly unabridged audiobook recording of the diary.
Lastly we have The Last Chronicle of Barset, Trollope’s joyful conclusion to The Chronicles of Barsetshire. This final volume skilfully weaves together plot threads and characters from earlier novels in the series and provides a fond farewell to the cherished diocese of Barchester. Running for over 125 hours, the complete Chronicles is a marathon read, and David Shaw-Parker perfectly captures the genial but acute voice of Trollope throughout.
