    Description

    Imagine two worlds at war. In one, citizens with jetpacks and ray guns have colonized Venus. In the other, magic reigns supreme, and history turns on swords and spells. Now imagine they have just discovered a third world.

    Our world.

    Our timeline of rideshare apps and strip malls is about to become the newest battlefield in the long war between science fiction and fantasy.

    In Florida, assassins are hunting down optical scientist Felicia Scurry. Her only chance of survival lies with long haul trucker Bucephalus Troy, who has stumbled into a world he calls Bamalot, a swords and sorcery version of today where magic works and science never happened. In Seattle, YouTube blogger Charity Kong is on the trail of a jetpack-wearing secret agent who broke her heart. And in a sinister secret college deep under Oxford, a failed comic book artist just might have started a Three Worlds War.

    Legendary science fiction writer Neal Stephenson teams up with World Fantasy Award-winning author Sean Stewart (Galveston; Cathy’s Book) and Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible) to present New Found Land: The Long Haul, a thrilling, hilarious, and mind-bending audio drama in the tradition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Fast-paced, funny, and deeply weird, The Long Haul is a warm-hearted, rollicking adventure about ordinary people rising to an extraordinary moment.

    New Found Land: The Long Haul is performed by Amber Williams, Jay Snyder, Gregory Connors, Izabel Mar, John Zdrojeski, Steve Routman, Graeme Malcolm, John Pirkis, Elizabeth Evans, LJ Ganser, Marc Vietor, Elizabeth Jasicki and features the voices of Allyson Johnson, Carrie Seim, Josh Hurley, Kevin T. Collins, Khristine Hvam, Lauren Fortgang, Nick Sullivan, Raphael Corkhill, and Steve Rimpici.

    You'll like this if you liked The Zeta Family.

    Gave me some of the same feel good campy adventure as The Zeta Family by Gretchen Enders. Highly recommend that audiobook if you liked this.

    This was amazing! I loved the audio drama format. The noise and sound effects were minimal and barely if any music. Every now and then for like introductions to chapters or events it may have a tune that ends when everyone starts talking but nothing too distracting. Only issue I had was some of the audio quality took a dip for dramatic effect when some of the characters were listening to tapes. It's a artistic choice that doesn't impact the story but some times I found it jarring.

    Overall the story feels very episodic but also it isn't. Occasionally these characters dive into tapes that give a storyline from a different world. Once a chapter in this other worlds story it will continue in the 'modern/present time/world'. I liked this format as it was easy to jump in and out of to listen throughout a few days and pick up where I left off.

    The use of a full cast was a great decision due to the number of distinct characters. I think without a full cast I probably would have struggled recognizing who was who as there were so many important characters to keep track of. The full cast gave everyone a distinct personality and voice that suited their character.

    The plot was so much fun! It felt like a campy on the road modern fantasy adventure. It was also funny/cute too several moments got a chuckle or a giggle out of me as I really appreciated the kind of humor in this. The plots stacked on top of plots was easy to follow too thanks to the use of the full cast making it really distinct which storyline you were following and with what characters.

    The characters were fun. Super outrageous, over the top fun and were fairly consistent. Character growth was lacking but I didn't really mind. I felt like the characters were already super fun and distinct that any growth would be hard to work in when they are already at 100.

    World building was great too. I felt like the audio drama format did a great enough job at being descriptive where it needed to be and a use of sound effects for easily recognizable things to fluff out everything. I never once had trouble picturing what was going on.

    Overall I felt really good with this. It's not a high tension or high anxiety adventure. It's more of a silly and light-hearted approach. There is some tenser moments, and of course these characters being hunted does darken the overall theme time to time but it never gets grim.

    Highly recommend this if you're needing something fun and light.

    whimsical

    along the lines of "men in black". if you enjoy Douglas Adams and other zany, light-hearted, imaginative fantasy, you will probably enjoy this.

    Fix the audio.

    I really enjoy all of these that I’ve listened to (this one, sandman, and phreaks) and really liked the story line but the volume change is terrible. Why can I hear a door slam but then can’t barely hear someone talking and then as soon as I turn up the volume to hear someone the next person talking is super loud. It’s annoying and Takes a person out of the story for sure.

    Entertaining throughout

    Storyline was great. Characters done well. Only criticism is there are awkward long pauses between chapters/ character change which made me think the playback had paused.

    Fantastic! Full cast is massively entertaining!

    I wish we could tip the cast and producers... the voice acting, editing, and direction were phenomenal, and it was less like an audiobook than a full stage production. I'm looking forward to hopefully more productive of this caliber. Story-wise, it was the basic plot and story that made me select this title, and I was not disappointed -- very creative and well-thought out. Looking forward to more!

    Great entertainment!

    I'm only 2 hours in, but I had to press pause and write my first ever review. I'm loving this story and the characters so much that I wish I had paid for this. Plus I really hope there will be more, maybe even a series? HBO are you listening?

    Fun and entertaining

    By far, one of the best "free" downloads I've found. Would definitely listen to more.
