Roy Dotrice, the popular audiobook reader for the first three A Song of Ice and Fire books, has been signed up by Bantam to read the audiobook for A Dance with Dragons. Schedules are being put together now for the recording and release of the audiobook.
Excellent news. There were fears that Dotrice's health issues - the same issues that meant he couldn't take up the role of Grand Maester Pycelle in the HBO series - would prevent him from reading the audiobook, but fortunately he has made a full and rapid recovery. HBO are also now looking at giving him a role in Season 2 (if renewed) of the TV show. Personally I think he'd make a great Maester Cressen (if a rather brief appearance).
