sleaford mods vocalist will take part in a new Alan Moore audiobook.

The legendary comic creator is slated to return to his first novel, with 1996 tome Voice Of The Fire set in his native Northampton.

Featuring 12 chapters, the audio version of Voice Of The Fire features a stellar cast, including Mark Gatiss, Maxine Peake and Toby Jones.

Jason Williamson will voice two stories: in the first, he is an ancient fisherman whose family were lost during the Roman conquest of Britain, before assuming the role of Northampton poet John Clare.

The last chapter is titled The Sun Looks Pale Upon The Wall, and finds Jason Williamson voicing Clare's thoughts as his doomed escape from an asylum merely results in further incarceration in Northampton.

It's set to be a busy year for Alan Moore - he's just announced a five-volume series of epic fantasy novels, Long London, and a short story collection to be published by Bloomsbury.
