Dear Member, Collector and Avid Listener,
Some of you have been receiving our catalogues since 1992 and enjoying our classic collections of period literature ever since. For some, however, it will be the first time you have seen or heard our titles - welcome to Assembled Stories classic audio books.
We have over 14 years experience of audio book manufacture and one of our talents, as well as recording more well known titles, is finding and recording previoulsy overlooked or forgotten gems from our literary heritage.
We constantly try and improve all our areas of business and we do listen! So, if you have any suggestions for improvement, or titles you would like to hear recorded, then please get in touch.
If we do decide to act upon your suggestion you will receive a complimentary copy of that book and in addition a complimentary title of your choice from our catalogue as a token of our appreciation.
Thank you for your interest and support. Happy Listening!
Peter Joyce is principal narrator at Assembled Stories.
Peter was trained at the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama and in the final year won the College Radio prize. He immediately started work for Theatre North, a Sheffield based company touring theatres of major cities in the North.of England.
He followed this with a solid history of repertory all over the UK, spending two years at the prestigious and pioneering Vic Theatre in the Round at Stoke on Trent, and has played major roles in the West End for the RSC. He has taken many parts in TV including such firm favourites as Minder, The Professionals, The Bill and Emmerdale, and has many credits in the world of TV Ads.- voiceover and appearance. He has worked for BBC Radio Drama in several productions and some of his titles have been heard on Oneword Radio - the only radio station devoted to talking books.
Nowadays, Peter has two companies, Assembled Stories and Past Present Science for which he travels the world performing his one man shows about Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton. He has recently returned from a tour of Malaysia for the British Council and other places visited include Eire, Belgium, Italy, France, Holland and the USA. In this capacity he has worked for such organisations as the Association of Science Education, Trinity College, Cambridge and the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is perhaps the only actor in the world to have worked for the two RSCs !!!!
In 1998 he took up the post of custodian of Woolsthorpe Manor, the birthplace of Isaac Newton, for the National Trust where he helped to design the science exhibition. He left in 2001 to concentrate on his two companies and now lives in Grantham 200 metres from the school of his hero - yes, you guessed it - Sir Isaac Newton.
