WEDNESDAY, May 24th at 7PM: THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF GORAK THE GOBBLER

Gorak the Gobbler specializes in solving problems with his own brand of wisdom, and playful logic. "...life like drinking soda. All go one way and no stopping: Sip, gulp, no matter. But when bubbles build up, only one ting to do - let em out!"

Ever think about how pressures of life eat away at you? What if there were a magical creature who gobbled away at those very things? In three tales, Gorak charms with his oddly mischievous sense of fun, and his keen understanding what makes us tick.

TUESDAY, May 23rd at 7PM: OLD MOTHER WEST WIND Begins

Welcome to the timeless world of the Green Forest, the laughing Brook, and the Smiling Pool. Here we meet a menagerie of funny and fascinating animal friends: Peter Cottontail, Jimmy Skunk, Reddy Fox, Grandfather Frog and many more.

In this beloved classic, the first in a series of highly popular animal tales by Thornton W. Burgess, children discover the answers to such questions as why Grandfather Frog has no tail and why Jimmy Skunk wears stripes.

There’s also great fun to be had in reading or hearing about the grand goings-on at Mink’s swimming party, Little Joe Otter’s slippery slide, and Reddy Fox’s fishing expedition. These and many other adventures are told in a warm, whimsical way that combines gentle lessons about nature and wildlife with the fun of a good story.
Join Faerie Maven-Pralou to hear more from Thorton Burgess’ story.

SUNDAY, May 21st at 1:30pm: TEA TIME MYSTERIES: "The Thin Man" Continues

Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man continues!

This week Corwyn and Caledonia present Nick, Nora, and a whole colorful cast of characters as the the mystery continues: who killed Julia Wolf?  Has Clyde Wynant committed suicide?  Where's my drink? (pour me another one darling)

OF INTEREST: Following the success of the movie version of The Thin Man in 1934, Hammett was commissioned to work on screenplays for sequels. During the course of this work, he wrote After the Thin Man and Another Thin Man, which, discovered amongst Hammett's papers in 2011, together with instructions by Hammett for incorporation of additional elements written by screenwriters Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, were edited by Hammett's biographer Richard Layman in collaboration with Hammett's granddaughter Julie M. Rivett and published as novellas in Return of the Thin Man in 2012

WEDNESDAY, April 10th at 7PM: The Exciting Conclusion of THE ATROCITY ARCHIVES

"...With often hilarious results, the author mixes the occult and the mundane, the truly weird and the petty. In "Atrocity," Bob, a low-level computer fix-it guy for the Laundry, a supersecret British agency that defends the world from occult happenings, finds himself promoted to fieldwork after he bravely saves the day during a routine demonstration gone awry. With his Palm, aka his Hand of Glory (a severed hand that, when ignited, renders the holder invisible), and his smarts, he saves the world from a powerful external force seeking to enter our universe to suck it dry. In "Jungle," Bob teams up with a cop, Josephine, to save the Laundry from a powermonger who seeks to stage an internal coup by using zombies as her minions."

SUNDAY, May 7th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME MYSTERIES Resumes ~ The Thin Man

Tea Time is back with a brand new mystery series: Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man, originally
published in Redbook magazine  in 1933, and published in book form the following year.

The story is set in New York City in December 1932, in the last days of Prohibition. The main characters are a former private detective, Nick Charles, and his clever young wife, Nora. Nick, son of a Greek immigrant, has given up his career since marrying Nora, a wealthy socialite, and he spends most of his time cheerfully getting drunk in hotel rooms and speakeasies. Nick and Nora have no children, but they own a female Schnauzer named Asta.


Charles is drawn, mostly against his will, into investigating a murder. The case brings them in contact with a rather grotesque family, the Wynants, and with various policemen and lowlifes. As they attempt to solve the case, Nick and Nora share a great deal of banter and witty dialogue, along with copious amounts of alcohol.

THURSDAY May 4th at 7pm: CORMAC MAC ART - Night of the Wolf


"Irish Pirate meets Danish Viking"
CORMAC MAC ART
Night of the Wolf

Cormac Mac Art (nicknamed an Cluiun - "The Wolf") was one of the Irish Reivers - bold pirates who range far among the ruins of the Roman Empire, reaching Spain and on occasion even Egypt.

Cormac Mac Art became outlawed and had to leave Ireland in a hurry, and he found refuge and a new home among the Danish Viking band led by Wulfhere the Skull-splitter. 
He became Wulfhere's right hand man, the two of them complementing each other and working harmoniously together.

Wulfhere is a bellicose and formidable fighter.  Cormac Mac Art, is a formidable swordsman, and is also well-informed on the affairs of the numerous kingdoms, tribes and factions of the British Islands and beyond. Cormac has many enemies, Irish as well as Scandinavian - but he manages to elude them, again and again. Together Wulfhere and Cormac go through many dangerous adventures.

One last reminder about Fantasy Faire if you hadn't seen this Drax Files episode before.  As a bit of trivia, once Shandon and Cale saw this, they contacted Zander Greene with an interest in getting the Library involved in doing live story sessions at the Faire.  Other people had the same notion, and the next year, Fantasy Faire Litfest made its Faire Lands debut.  Funny old virtual world, ain't it?

THURSDAY April 27th at 7pm: Monsters and Myth: THE CHIMAERA part two


"...a boy’s aspirations, a king’s cruelty, a poet’s dreams..."
Monsters & Myth: THE CHIMAERA
part 2

The Chimaera – a fire-breathing winged monster with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. Plaguing the lands of the Middle Sea, this fantastic creature comes into confrontation with the young hero, Bellerophon. The youth proves to be a worthy match, having already succeeded in his conquest of the tyrant king, Melicertes. Bellerophon’s adventures, which reach a climax in his battle with the Chimaera, provide a rich and powerful story of young ambition, evil intention, and poetic desire. The tale of the Chimaera is one of conflicting emotions, and the endless struggle against the demands of fate. It is about a boy’s aspirations, a king’s cruelty, a poet’s dreams, and the capricious nature of the gods – all magnified and illuminated within the turbulent world of myth.

FRIDAY April 21st at 6pm: REQUIEM - by Robert Heinlein

REQUIEM
by Robert Heinlein

Harriman, a tycoon and latter-day robber baron, had always dreamed of going to the Moon, and had spent much of his career and resources making space flight a practical commercial enterprise. Unfortunately, his business partners prevented him from taking the early flights because they could not risk the public face of their company. Now an old man, Harriman has still not been to the Moon, a fact that frustrates him, since he lives in a world where space travel is so commonplace that carnivals have their own barnstorming spacecraft. Although no longer bound by his contractual obligations, he is now too old to pass the medical examination needed for space travel.
