Co-author of The Bane Chronicles – Maureen Johnson – has revealed that Cecil Baldwin from Welcome to Night Vale will narrate the audio book of The Fall of the Hotel Dumort.
Here is what Maureen tweeted:
The Fall of the Hotel Dumort is the seventh installment of The Bane Chronicles and will be released on October 15!
Cassandra Clare later wrote on her tumblr:
W00t! We here at Bane Chronicles Enterprises are SUPER EXCITED. We love Night Vale and we extra love Cecil Baldwin, who we are delighted to announce is the next Bane Chronicles reader, for Fall of the Hotel Dumort.
Maureen’s love for Night Vale introduced us all to it, and were thrilled to see a spooky funny fantasy with an interracial gay romance front and center doing so well, so it seemed like a perfect fit for Bane, especially Fall, which is probably the closest installment to a classic horror story. Maureen will be in the studio with Cecil while he records so if you have questions for him about anything — Bane, Carlos’ perfect hair — shoot her a tweet @maureenjohnson !
