SATURDAY. October 24th at 1pm: TALES AT THE HOLLOW - The Witch's Headstone

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a perfectly normal boy. Well, he would be perfectly normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the world of the dead.

There are dangers and adventures for Bod in the graveyard: but it is in the land of the living that real danger lurks, for it is there that the man Jack lives and he has already killed Bod's family.

A deliciously dark masterwork by bestselling author Neil Gaiman. Caledonia reads "The Witch's Gravestone"  - the short story that was the springing point for this award winning novel.

Is she a good witch, or a bad witch?  Baba Yaga's enigmatic place in vast canon of Russian folklore does not even always distinguish her AS a witch - though the flying mortar and besom might be a dead give away.

WEDNESDAY, October 14th at 7pm: THE HALLOWEEN TREE Continues

"The Kite flew.

"The boys hung down from the Kite in a fine lizard’s tail, now weaving, now looping, now snapping, now gliding.

"They yelled with delight. They shrieked with ingasped, outgasped terror. They rode across the moon in an exclamation point. They soared over hills and meadows and farms. They saw themselves reflected in dusky moon-bright streams, creeks, rivers. They brushed down over ancient trees. The wind stirred by their passing shook down whole government mints of coins, leaves, bright showering to the black-grassed earth."

~ from "The Halloween Tree" by Ray Bradbury

Shandon Loring, Faerie Maven-Pralou, and Caledonia Skytower present Ray Bradbury's Halloween classic under the Halloween Tree at the Haunted Hollow. Episode 1 tonight!

@ 7pm: Odd & The Frost Giants

Willow Moonfire reads Neil Gaiman’s story, originally written for World Book Day.

Winter isn’t coming – it’s refusing to go away, but no-one understands why.

Not only that, but Odd has run away from home, despite the fact he can barely walk and has to use a crutch. Nevertheless, he finds his way to the forest, where he encounters three animals: a bear, a fox, and an eagle, and they have a strange story to tell. Listening to them, Odd realizes he must now embark on a strange journey, one he can barely imagine.

For he must now set out and save nothing less that Asgard, City of the Norse Gods. For it has been invaded by the Frost Giants, and while they hold it, winter will not pass away. 

It’s going to take a very special kind of boy to defeat the most dangerous of all the Frost Giants and free the mighty Gods. A boy who is resolute, cheerful and infuriating and clever…

…A boy just like Odd, in fact.

For there was the Tree.

And it was such a tree as they had never seen in all their lives.

It stood in the middle of a vast yard behind the terribly strange house. And this tree rose up some one hundred feet in the air, taller than the high roofs and full and round and well branched, and covered all over with rich assortments of red and brown and yellow autumn leaves.

SUNDAY, October 4th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with "The Shadow"

 
The TEA TIME crew presents episodes from the classic radio show at The Ledge Story and 
Dance Space, at Haunted Hollow in the first session of a three week series.  

Originally created to be a mysterious radio show narrator, The Shadow was developed into a distinctive literary character in 1931 by writer Walter B. Gibson.

The Shadow debuted on July 31, 1930, as the mysterious narrator of the radio program Detective Story Hour, which was developed to boost sales of Street & Smith's monthly pulp Detective Story Magazine. When listeners of the program began asking at newsstands for copies of 'that Shadow detective magazine', Street & Smith decided to create a magazine based on a character called The Shadow.

On September 26, 1937, The Shadow, a new radio drama based on the character as created by Gibson for the pulp magazine, premiered with the story "The Death House Rescue", in which The Shadow was characterized as having 'the power to cloud men's minds so they cannot see him'. In the magazine stories, The Shadow was not given the literal ability to become invisible.

The introductory line from the radio adaptation of The Shadow - 'Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!' - spoken by actor Frank Readick, has earned a place in the American idiom. These words were accompanied by an ominous laugh and a musical theme, Camille Saint-Saƫns' Le Rouet d'Omphale ("Omphale's Spinning Wheel," composed in 1872). At the end of each episode, The Shadow reminded listeners that 'The weed of crime bears bitter fruit! Crime does not pay. The Shadow knows!' (However, some early episodes used the alternate statement, 'As you sow evil, so shall you reap evil! Crime does not pay... The Shadow knows!'

Presented live on stream with Da5id Abbot, Elrik Merlin, Corwyn Allen, Kayden Oconnell, Gloeriana Maertens, and Caledonia Skytower.

There will be a teleport from the main landing point. NOTE: While Isle of Joy is an adult region, none of the content of Haunted Hollow is adult in nature.
