Thibaut Corday of the Foreign Legion #2 Audiobook
The Bearded Slayer
by Theodore Roscoe
Read by Roy Worley
 
 
Stories of the French Foreign Legion were a staple of the great pulp magazines of the 20th Century. The ingredients of high adventure were embedded in the unique situation of fighting men from all around the world, fleeing from the law, broken hearts or other nameless tragedies, banded together in exotic foreign lands in service to French national interests. In an earlier era, these infamous soldiers of misfortune were a symbol of romantic glory.
 
P. C. Wren’s oft-filmed Beau Geste was the most celebrated French Foreign Legion novel ever penned, but when it came to short stories and novelettes, Theodore Roscoe was the prince of the genre. His battle-seasoned Legionnaire, Old Thibaut Corday, has also stood the test of time, thanks to the author’s immensely imaginative storytelling skills––and the fact that he wrote about people and places he knew because he visited them.
 
The series ran in the pages of Argosy between 1929-39. Corday is a retired fighting man dwelling in Algiers, who spins tales of his soldiering days for any who will listen. Dubbed the “Bearded Scheherazade of the Legion,” Corday recounts, not dusty yarns of outpost forts in distant deserts, but strange stories that defy rational explanation. Defy––not for deny. For no matter how wild the tale, no matter how much the canny old Legionnaire seems to be stretching the truth, there is always a satisfying solution.
 
We present two Thibaut Corday stories, “The Bearded Slayer” and “The Mutineer.” If you think the exploits of the French Foreign Legion is old stuff, Theodore Roscoe will show you how great tales are told––if you will only lend an ear to Old Thibaut Corday as he weaves yet another eye-popping yarn of his youth.... Read with appropriate aplomb by Roy Worley.

Roy Worley was born in Memphis, TN where he grew up. Storytelling was part and parcel of his childhood as he heard his grandfather tell many funny stories of life as a poor boy growing up in the delta of Mississippi. It was just natural that he would pick it up. His storytelling ability has been fine-tuned over a thirty-five year ministry as a preacher, both in the US and in South America.
 
Roy has narrated books that can be found on Amazon.com, iTunes and Audible.com. They range from works of fiction, to Christian theology to civil war history. He was sought out in 2012 by mystery author Chinle Miller to narrate her Bud Shumway series.
