Paizo's Pathfinder Tales are to become audio adventures produced by Big Finish.

"We're thrilled to be working with Big Finish," says Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. "Their work with properties like Doctor Who has shown the care, attention-to-detail, and quality we know Pathfinder fans have come to expect, and we're excited to hear the adventures of Valeros, Seoni, and our other iconic characters as they venture through Pathfinder's most famous campaign, the Rise of the Runelords!"
"The moment we saw the spectacular Paizo booth at the Gen Con event last year, company Chairman Jason Haigh-Ellery and I knew that the exciting worlds of Paizo's best-selling, award-winning Pathfinder would be ideal inspiration for exciting audio productions," says Big Finish executive producer Nicholas Briggs. "We're really excited and proud to be working with such great stories and characters."
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game builds on more than 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming to create an unparalleled fantasy roleplaying experience. Players need only the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook to play, but Paizo Publishing produces a wide range of books and accessories to enhance your Pathfinder experience, from hardcover rules compendiums to complete campaigns to packets of beautiful full-color maps.

In the meantime, I'd like to share a recent (but old) discovery of one short Pathfinder Tales adventure already in audio book form. It resides on the StarShipSofa - the audio science fiction magazine from Dec 7th, 2011. It is James L. Sutter reading his own short story Web Fiction- Faithful Servants. While there are several featured articles in the podcast, Sutter's reading starts around 0:28:20 into it.
