Audible has set up a special page for Raylan fans where you can get the best versions of all four audiobooks mentioned in the podcast (Pronto, Riding the Rap, When the Women Come Out to Dance ("Fire in the Hole"), and Raylan). Two of these audiobooks -- Grover Gardner's reading of Pronto, and Frank Muller's version of Riding the Rap -- had previously been hard to locate so we urge you to check them out and support Audible for making them available. Oddly, for Elmore Leonard -- and it's perhaps a tribute to the popularity of the TV show -- Raylan is also available on cassette and appears to be the first of his audiobooks to be seriously pirated.

Update 2012: Great news: Audible has made available the George Guidall version of Touch. (At the time we did the podcast, there was no authorized digital download of Touch. Copies of the George Guidall audiobook could only be acquired via eBay or other second-hand sellers.) By the way, there is another 1996 audiobook of Touch from Books on Tape, narrated by Alexander Adams aka Grover Gardner. We had a copy of that one but it somehow disappeared from our collection.

Amazing but true ... there are three versions of Tonto Woman available at audible.com. Alfred Molina's version of The Tonto Woman is finally available and so are two other pretty cool versions including Wlliam Atheron's storytelling as part of The Complete Western Stories and Taye Digg's swell version as part of When the Women Come Out to Dance. Both are also available used at Amazon and eBay. And don't forget about Henry Strozier's resonant reading of The Tonto Woman, still available from Recorded Books. As for the short film of The Tonto Woman, good luck finding a version anywhere. You can see some clips from the film at YouTube, including the trailer, the "Do you know who I am?" sequence and the dinner sequence. Also, Lou Diamond Phillips read the story live in 2004, but no versions of that are circulating. Finally, the character of Ruben Vega also appears in the audiobook Gunsights though he meets an unfortunate demise.
