(urth) Book of the New Sun Audiobooks?

As to the origin of the audiobooks, a wild guess:
A friend showed me a CD he'd bought from somewhere or other of readings
of H.P. Lovecraft which were entirely computer generated - text fed into
a text-to-speech program. The results were just about as awful as you'd
imagine. I can see this as being a great assistive technology for blind
people who are sick of the relatively restricted pool of available
audiobooks, but I can't imagine anyone listening to it for any other reason.
Unless they're a *really* big Doctor Who fan and just plain like the
sound of Daleks talking.
Anyway - just guesswork on my part.
