WEDNESDAY, February 22nd at 7PM: THE WINTER OF OUR WODEHOUSE Concludes


Trolley Trollop wraps up her exploration of the many delights of author P.G. Wodehouse.  There are so many joys remaining, but she's picked a "doozy" for her last session: Rodney Fails to Qualify.

Love and golf share equal place in the hearts of a young couple - well... almost equal place! Golf, of course, takes precedence...

Join Trolley for an hour of wit and laughter, Wodehouse style, live in voice.

MONDAY February 20th at 7pm: THE CRUCIBLE OF TIME

THE CRUCIBLE OF TIME
- by John Brunner -
Far off in space is an alien race which is so much like us, yet so un-alike. From the birth of their earliest civilization through to their attainment of star flight as their star system passes through the galaxy, we follow their development through the ages.
Aquatic by nature, this race presents some significant challenges well outside the realms of anything encountered by humanity. But they are also driven by all too familiar hopes, fears, desires, needs, wants, prejudices, impact of religious ideologies, and the quest for knowledge we have experienced in the growth of our own civilization.

PRESENTED IN LIVING VOICE BY GYRO MUGGINS

SUNDAY, February 19th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME Mysteries Continues

Humphrey Bogart as Raymond Chandler's signature detective, Phillip Marlowe
"There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge."       ~ RED WIND, by Raymond Chandler

Possessing one of the most lauded and beloved opening paragraphs in noir-detective fiction, Raymond Chandler introduces Phillip Marlowe, who would become his signature detective.

Chandler's RED WIND continues today, with Part 2 of 3, live in voice, with Kayden Oconnell, John Morland and Caledonia Skytower.

WEDNESDAY, February 15th at 7PM: More from THE WINTER OF OUR WODEHOUSE

Things have thawed on the Bradley University sim, but it still is technically Winter.  What's more it's the day after St Valentine's Day and Trolley's steps are still waltzing to the string'ed strains of romance.

Two Wodehousian stories of romance tonight:

 "Absent Treatment" from My Man Jeeves - a newly married man forgets his first wedding anniversary and there's Hell to pay.

 "The Romance of an Ugly Policeman" from The Man with Two Left Feet - features a husband whose wife controls the purse strings. For those readers who have been acquainted with Wodehouse’s “upper crust” characters, this story affords a chance to appreciate just how masterfully Wodehouse wrote about the “rest of us” struggling to make our way in life.

TUESDAY, February 14th at 7pm: A MONSTROUS REGIMENT OF WOMEN Continues

Caledonia continues Laurie R. King's second adventure in her Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes series.

It might not seem like a proper Valentine's Day session, but remember ... Mary has been abducted, is being held prisoner, and is being treated very badly.  Will she escape.  Will she be saved?  It just might be a more appropriate tale for the day than at first it seems.

MONDAY, February 13th at 7:00pm: THE CRUCIBLE OF TIME Resumes

Gyro Muggins resumes this saga by John Brunner. First published as two-part story which appeared in Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, it’s an ambitious tale of alien intelligence which grew to a series of six linked tales pushed as a single novel in 1983.
Far off in space is an alien race which is so much like us, yet so un-alike. From the birth of their earliest civilization through to their attainment of star flight as their star system passes through the galaxy, we follow their development through the ages.
Aquatic by nature, this race presents some significant challenges well outside the realms of anything encountered by humanity. But they are also driven by all too familiar hopes, fears, desires, needs, wants, prejudices, impact of religious ideologies, and the quest for knowledge we have experienced in the growth of our own civilization.
Charting six periods of time, each a thousand years after the previous, the six stories focus on the efforts of a group of individuals in each era as they face one or more challenges, their success in overcoming these challenges inevitably leading them towards a greater understanding of their planet’s plight, and ultimately, the ability to deal with that plight and the survival of their civilization.

SUNDAY, February 12th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME MYSTERIES!

A new iteration of Tea Time begins: 
TEA TIME MYSTERIES!
Everything non-Holmesian from Christie to Hamett, classic sleuthing to hard boiled detectives of the noir-ish hue.

THIS WEEK FEATURING: Raymond Chandler
One short story and the beginning of a longer adventure:

I'll Be Waiting.  The shortest of Chandler’s stories; it is also the first—and only—one published in a “slick” magazine. Nearly all his previous works of short fiction had been published in the pulps Black Mask and Dime Detective, but Chandler wrote one for the Saturday Evening Post at the behest of his agent and was motivated primarily by the money such magazines paid. 

Red Wind - (begins, to be continued next week)A favorite of many Raymond Chandler fans, Red Wind sports a memorable first paragraph the set the evocative worlds of the noir tale. Chandler maintains the wind motif throughout the story. Throughout the mayhem Philip Marlowe solves a murder and tries to track down some missing pearls.

THURSDAY February 9th at 7pm: Monsters & Myth: THE HYDRA - A Winter's Love Tale pt2


"Heroes and Monsters battle fearlessly in this magical land"
Monsters & Myth: THE HYDRA
A Winter's Love Tale
part 2

The Hydra – a hundred-headed reptile whose teeth contain the most deadly poison on earth. Tricked by a jealous goddess, Hercules must face the Hydra in battle – a fierce struggle that unexpectedly places the valiant warrior’s fate in the hands of a cunning young girl. First, however, Hercules must tangle with another powerful foe – Boreas, the brutal Titan of the North Wind. The Titan’s one weakness is his love for Iris, the Goddess of the Rainbow. When Iris shuns him, Boreas kidnaps her and takes her to his ice castle, which is guarded by giant arctic owls, prowling polar bears and wolves, and deadly frost demons. Hercules must face each in turn, and finally Boreas himself, to rescue Iris. And this is only a prelude to his greatest test of all! Spiraling from happiness to sadness and round again, THE HYDRA brings to life a world in which good and evil are forever in the balance. Heroes and Monsters battle fearlessly in this magical land, but it is the spirit of a beautiful young girl that triumphs in the end.

WEDNESDAY, February 8th at 7PM: THE WINTER OF OUR WODEHOUSE Begins

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse KBE was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century.  Among his best known collections are the Jeeves and Wooster, Blandings Castle, and extended to a broad cross section for stories for all ages.

Wodehouse was a great fan of Sherlock Holmes and he was the product of the British public school (USA private school) educational system where one learns the fine arts of "getting away with murder."

Two mystery adventures tonight: "Aunt Agatha Takes the Count" from Wodehouse on Crime; and "Misunderstood" from Death at the Excelsior and Other Stories.

THURSDAY January 26th at 7pm: An Evening with Hemingway, Tolstoi, and Saki

A squeezing of a slice of life into the narrowest of compasses
AN EVENING WITH
Hemingway, Tolstoi, and Saki

The desire to tell stories and to listen to them is one of the qualities inherent in all human nature, and the storyteller’s art is perhaps the oldest of all the arts in the world, and the best-loved. The short story is just the right length in a world of tumult and hurry… The essential quality of the short story is its economy. …here everything must show intensity of concentration, a squeezing of a slice of life into the narrowest of compasses… These stories, diverse as they are, share one thing in common: they all belong to a different time, and that is exactly what constitutes a classic—something recognizably dated, yet still works even after all those years. Tonight: 'The Killers' by Ernest Hemingway 'God Sees The Truth, But Waits' by Leo Tolstoi 'Tobermory' by Saki (H.H. Munro)

None of them receive any thanks for the jobs they do, but at least a techie doesn’t risk getting shot or eaten in the line of duty. Bob’s world is dull but safe, and that’s the way it should have stayed; but then he went and got Noticed.

“Now, Bob Howard is up to his neck in spycraft, alternative universes, dimension-hopping Nazis, Middle Eastern terrorists, damsels in distress, ancient Lovecraftian horror and the end of the world.

It was way back in September when Caledonia introduced us to author Laurie R. King's second adventure in her Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes series.

When last we saw Mary, she had infiltrated Margery Childe's "Temple" where much good is taking place, but some things just do not seem right - like a convenient series of deaths that benefit the Temple.  As we rejoin the adventure, Mary is about to get much deeper into the mystery, putting her own life at risk.

We left Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III going to a seemingly certain death last week, so relax your anxious fingers from the edge the your seat and join Cale for the no-doubt-thrilling conclusion of the third adventure in Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series!

Caledonia concludes the wild and hilarious adventure tonight at the Fire Circle, Live in voice.

We continue our post Virtual Baker Street withdrawal therapy at the hands of a contemporary master, Neil Gaiman.  THIS WEEK: A Study In Emerald.

The story is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche transferred to the Cthulhu Mythos universe of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. It won the 2004 Hugo Award for Best Short Story. The title is a reference to the Sherlock Holmes novel A Study in Scarlet. "A Study in Emerald" first appeared in the anthology Shadows Over Baker Street, a collection of stories combining the worlds of Arthur Conan Doyle and H. P. Lovecraft; it has subsequently been available as part of Gaiman's short story collection Fragile Things, in the collection New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird, and is available online. The online version takes the form of a Victorian periodical or newspaper, which includes various advertisements that reference characters such as Vlad Tepes, Victor Frankenstein, Spring Heeled Jack, and Dr. Jekyll.
