Would you consider the audio edition of Seven Stones to Stand or Fall to be better than the print version?
Yes and no. Having not seen the print version, I can assume by what I listened to, that there are instances where seeing the print edition would be more helpful. One instance is a list of someone's diary entries - where seeing it as we would "normally" would probably allow the reader to grasp the information more easily. However, I enjoy the audio versions immensely. The voice actors are terrific at characterizations, and little things like hearing a fight, and the audible gasps, huffing, out of breath pauses certainly make the audio book quite enjoyable.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Seven Stones to Stand or Fall?
Getting to know Minnie. The story of her travels to London and what ensues is entirely new material and much about a character that I've always wanted to know better.
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. And there's a critical review of this audiobook that disparages the "woman with a raspy voice". Well, that's the author herself, and while Diana is not a professional voice actor, having her acerbic wit in the material she reads is very enjoyable.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Can't imagine this book in film as a stand alone. The stories enhance the Outlander universe.
Any additional comments?
Audible doesn't label its chapters. An annoying habit. I suggest the following bookmarks Labels for the readers' and listeners' convenience:
Chapter 1 Intro to book
Chapter 2 Custom of the Army
Chapter 6 A Space Within
Chapter 11 A Plague of Zombies
Chapter 15 A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows
Chapter 17 Virgins
Chapter 22 A Fugitive Green
Chapter 40 Besieged.

If you're a fan of both the Lord John and Outlander series then these novellas are necessary to round out those storylines. However, if you're NOT a fan of the Lord John series, I don't think you'll enjoy this collection very much.
