Airship 27 Productions, in association with Radio Archives, is thrilled to announce that veteran voice actor George Kuch will be reading “Holmes & Houdini” by author, I.A. Watson.  A veteran of 30 years theater experience, Kuch joined the AFTRA union around 2008 and did much background and stand-in work for TV shows filmed in the New York/New Jersey area.

Although steady work, there was little for the actor in creative satisfaction. He was looking for something in which he could utilize his acting skills. Thus he attended an AFTRA seminar on audiobook narration and was immediately intrigued by the possibilities inherent in such work.  “I would be able to act all the roles in a story,” he recalls vividly. “Success would be determined by my ability to tell a story alone using the experiences and knowledge I’d gained from the stage in a completely new direction.”

Kuch sought out advice from professional audiobook narrators and was subsequently coached by Paul Alan Rueben, one of the finest directors of audiobooks. Thus prepared, he launched his new career in 2011 and has since narrated over 100 audiobooks.

Being a long time fan of Sherlock Holmes, Kuch was thrilled when the opportunity arose to narrate new Holmes adventures for both Pro Se Press & Airship 27 Productions.  “I was asked if I had any interest in narrating some of the Sherlock Holmes anthologies and I jumped at the chance. I have now completed 8 anthologies and 4 stand-alone Holmes novels with still more to be done.”

“Our readers love George’s readings,” says Airship 27 Productions’ Managing Editor Ron Fortier. “Whereas I.A. Watson’s novel was a special project, teaming the Great Detective with famous magician Harry Houdini. Knowing that it this book is now in George’s capable hands, tells me this is going to be one fantastic audiobook our fans will not want to miss.”

All Airship 27 titles are produced via Radio Archives and sold at Amazon on the same pages as the books and kindle versions. Further announcements will be made when the audibook is officially on sale.
