THURSDAY June 4th at 7pm: STINGERS and STRANGERS - "Weird Westerns"

STINGERS and STRANGERS
"Weird Westerns"
Johnny and Billie Joe are on assignment again, this time heading for Colorado to investigate reports of an unusually large Apraxis hive. Apraxis wasps are large, deadly, and worst of all, capable of consuming the memories of the people they kill, which makes them the sort of thing that no one really wants living nearby.

Corwyn Allen presents the first in author Kerry Greenwood's series of mystery adventures by Australian "Lady Detective" Phryne Fisher in the years after World War I. 

In the first adventures, Phryne leaves the tedium of English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never looks back. More than a bit "naughty" for the 1920s, and playing by her own rules, the Honorable Miss Fisher takes on cocaine, communism, and adventure.

CONGRATULATIONS! 100w Stories Podcast Celebrating 15 Years!

Long ago, he swore an oath to write a 100 word
story every day until the day he died. He's not dead 
yet. Today R. celebrates 15 years to that commitment at TerpsiCorps Artwerks at 5pm slt. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TerpsiCorps%20Isle/50/171/1800

There are very few people that Seanchai Library has counted as "friend" longer than R. Dismantled.  He has been a supporter, an advocate, and a fellow storyteller from our early days.

"I think he is one of the most unrestrainedly genuine people I know," said Seanchai Library's Caledonia Skytower, "I have seen him over the years be brutally honest, sometimes abrasive when that's what he felt, and I have also experienced his kindness and profound generosity. For a sentient clockwork, he is about as *real* as it's possible to be."

Seanchai Library salutes this incredible accomplishment and the creative soul behind it. "Always unpredictable and irreverent, no subject is too sacred, no cow too holy for R. not to pull it out, examine it, and bang it on the table a few times before putting it back where he found it - albeit slightly crumpled.  And no, he NEVER has opinions!"

WEDNESDAY, May 13th at 7pm: A NUN IN THE CLOSET Resumes

Caledonia Skytower resumes Dorothy Gilman’s 1986 mystery
https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Holly%20Kai%20Estates/213/43/27

When a cloistered monastic community of nuns inherit an old house with 150 acres in up-state New York courtesy of a mysterious benefactor, they are at a loss as to what to do. Sister John and Sister Hyacinthe are therefore dispatched to give the property the once-over and report back. A simple enough assignment, except neither Sister is entirely prepared to deal with all that they find.

From hippies on the lawn to suitcase stuffed with money sitting at the bottom of a well, disguised cocaine and a wounded man who has hidden himself in a closet to avoid Mafia hitmen, not to mention strange apparitions in the night, It might have been better had Sister John and Sister Hyacinthe remained cloistered in the abbey.

But it is amazing what two nuns can achieve armed only with their faith and boundless energy – up to and including a shocking revelation or two about ghosts, gangsters – and murder.

Originally published in The New Yorker on April 8, 1950, it was anthologized in Salinger's Nine Stories two years later. The short story was immediately popular with readers. According to biographer Kenneth Slawenski, the story is “widely considered one of the finest literary pieces to result from the Second World War. Author Paul Alexander calls it a "minor masterpiece”. NOTE:  The story contains a dialog between two soldiers that includes a bit of salty language…
