THURSDAY, August 13th at 7pm: IT'S ALL GREEK TO ME!

Caledonia shares more selections from Stephen Fry's HEROES: Mortals, Monsters, Quests and Adventures - a re-imagining of Greek myths.  (She promises less blood and guts this time)  

Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes.

Filled with white-knuckle chases and battles, impossible puzzles and riddles, acts of base cowardice and real bravery, not to mention murders and selfless sacrifices, Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of - at our worst and our very best.


Followed by SEANCHAI LATE NIGHT at 9pm, with Finn Zeddmore. Contemporary Sci-Fi-Fantasy from such online 'zines as Light Speed, Escape Pod, Clarkesworld, and more!

WEDNESDAY, August 12th at 7pm: WHITTINGTON Concludes

 

Caledonia Skytower continues Alan Armstrong’s 2006  Newbery-Honor winning tale.

Whittington is a roughneck tom cat who arrives one day at a barn full of rescued animals and asks for a place there. Present at the barn is a menagerie of animals and young Ben and Abby, whose grandfather owns the barn and does the rescuing.

To earn his place, Whittington tells the tale of his famous ancestor, the nameless cat who brought Dick Whittington to the heights of wealth and power in 16th-century England. In telling his story of how his ancestors saved and elevated Whittington, this tom-with-a-chip, elevates another little boy above his fear of learning to read.

TUESDAY, August 11th at 7pm: Ursula K. LeGuin's THE STARS BELOW

Willow Moonfire reads Ursula K. Le Guin’s short story that initially came to prominence when reprinted in the anthology volume The Wind’s Twelve Quarters alongside of The Word of Unbinding and The Rule of Names, two of the founding short stories of what would become her Earthsea novels.

Fearing the zealots who razed his observatory burn him at the stake for heresy, an astronomer is forced underground into the cold tunnels of ancient mine workings that sit upon deeper, more extensive tunnels and caverns hewn by nature. Here he is discovered by a group of old miners who still try to eke out a living chipping silver out of the hard rock. Rather than turn him in, they adopt him, and slowly he learns some of their ways and helps them with their work, but never venturing back to the surface, afraid for what might happen if the authorities come upon him.

But his learning of the stars of heaven will not leave him, nor will the skills he learned in making his own telescopes and fine lenses – one of which he rescued from the pyre of his observatory. And so the miners see him less and less as he explore the great caves and caverns, until one evening he comes to them to tell them he has once again found the stars – and they are below the mine.

Presented Live on Stream.

@ 7PM: A Trio of Cat Tales

Cale has a new friend in the house!  So it's only fitting that "Mr Benson" should learn of the felinious heritage of the family he is now a part of.  And you can listen in!

A Trio of Cat Tales is Cale's own work, published in 2013. A slim volume of life from a cat's point of view.  Meet “S” – a cat in the prime of her nine lives. From her superior feline perch, she swipes a paw at adventures in traveling, her favorite games, along with lessons in art and respect. A Trio of Cat Tales is a "feliniously" philosophical journey with plenty of insights and exploits for cat lovers and the “cat owned.”

TUESDAY, July 28th at 7pm: Selections from THE GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN

The Golden Apples of the Sun is an anthology of 22 short stories by American writer Ray Bradbury. It was published by Doubleday & Company in 1953.

The book's title is also the title of the final story in the collection. The words "the golden apples of the sun" are from the last line of the final stanza of W. B. Yeats' poem "The Song of Wandering Aengus" (1899):

Though I am old with wandering

Through hollow lands and hilly lands,

I will find out where she has gone

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and times are done

The silver apples of the moon,

The golden apples of the sun.

Bradbury prefaces his book with the last three lines of this poem. When asked what attracted him to the line "the golden apples of the sun", he said, "[My wife] Maggie introduced me to Romantic poetry when we were dating, and I loved it. I love that line in the poem, and it was a metaphor for my story, about taking a cup full of fire from the sun."

As if in a dream only one man can know, he tastes the dirt of the alley he crawls through, the cold taste of his own defeat. Laughter, mad and maniacal, peals from the dark brick walls. In this place, at this time, the Batman's reign is ending. And the Joker laughs.

SUNDAY, July 19th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with Miss Marple - Finale

Episode 5, the conclusion of "The Murder at The Vicarage" 


Aoife Lorefield, Da5id Abbot, Caledonia Skytower, Corwyn Allen, Gloriana Maertens, Kayden Oconnell, Willow Moonfire, live.

The Murder at the Vicarage is the first novel to feature the character of Miss Marple and her village of St Mary Mead. This first look at St Mary Mead led a reviewer in 1990 to ask why these are called cosy mysteries: "Our first glimpse of St Mary Mead, a hotbed of burglary, impersonation, adultery and ultimately murder. What is it precisely that people find so cosy about such stories?"

NOTE: This is also the final day to explore the virtual slice if St Mary Mead, created for this series.

TUESDAY, July 14th at 7pm: Selections from Ray Bradbury's THE ILLUSTRATED MAN

Willow Moonfire reads Ray Bradbury’s 1951 classic that has never been out of print, live on stream.

A magnificent tapestry of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, The Illustrated Man offers 18 stories that have been built around the recurring theme of the conflict between the cold mechanics of technology and the variable psychology of humans.

An unnamed narrator meets a vagrant wanderer, a former member of a freak show known as The Illustrated Man on account of his entire body being covered in exotic tattoos. But these are not ordinary tattoos: each is imbued with a magical life of its own, allowing Bradbury to use them as a device to draw his readers into the 18 unique tales within the book.

Included are tales like The Veldt, a chilling tale of what happens when children are left within a VR environment without context or parental supervision; or  Kaleidoscope, the story of how astronauts trapped in orbit chose to face a return to Earth without the benefit of a space craft; or  – particularly poignant for our time: how does a black society that has removed itself from the racism of Earth by moving to Mars handle the arrival of a white group of colonists from their former home planet?

THURSDAY July 2nd at 7pm: Kolchak: THE NIGHT STALKER - Barrens

THE NIGHT STALKER
Barrens
"Don't take MY word for it"
Chicago wire service reporter, Carl Kolchak, investigates mysterious crimes with unlikely causes, particularly those that law enforcement authorities won't follow up. These often involve the supernatural or science fiction, including fantastic creatures. 

This one’s happened to us all.
You’re driving late at night on some long distance trip. Maybe you’re alone. Maybe the wife and kids are asleep in the other seats. You’ve driven a couple hours past where you should have turned into that motel. Your back’s sore and eyes are itching from sitting and staring–from watching the lines on the road roll under your hood. 

There.

What was that?

Something in your peripheral. Something on the shoulder of the road. There, just at the limit of your headlight beam. Just for a flash of a second. Something moving. Running. Matching speed with you for just a fraction of a fraction of a second. Were those eyes glowing in your brights? Was that a glimpse of spiky fur? And feet paddling like a blur and kicking up dust by your spinning tires? Did you see a flash of teeth? Then it’s gone.
