WEDNESDAY, November 14th at 7pm: THE JENNIFER MORGUE Concludes

. . . for now. Do not despair!  Bob will be back! It's just a pause.

After this session Bob Howard, geekish demonology hacker for The Laundry, will return later in the season to continue to pursue a ruthless billionaire to stop him from unleashing an eldritch horror, codenamed "Jennifer Morgue" from the ocean's depths for the purpose of ruling the world. 

Corwyn brings Book 2 of Charles Stross' Laundry Files series to a pause point: The Jennifer Morgue.  Live in voice.

TUESDAY, November 13th at 7pm: EVERYTHING ON A WAFFLE Begins

Primrose Squarp simply knows her parents did not perish at sea during a terrible storm, but try convincing the other residents of Coal Harbour on that score. For all practical purposes, at least for the time being, Primrose is an orphan, and there's no great clamoring of prospective adopters. After realizing the impracticality of continuing to pay Miss Perfidy (a mothball-scented elderly lady) an hourly wage to baby-sit her, the town council is able to locate a relative, Uncle Jack, who reluctantly takes Primrose into his care. Primrose does warm up to living with him and in his home, despite the eerie noises resembling a hockey game that haunt her in the night. 
But true sanctuary can always be found at a restaurant called The Girl in the Swing, where everything―including lasagna―is served on a waffle, and where the proprietor, Miss Bowzer, offers a willing ear, as well as sage advice. Through a mixture of eccentric humor and probing philosophy, author Polly Horvath makes Primrose's search for peace and understanding a most memorable one.
Everything on a Waffle is a 2001 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book for Fiction and Poetry and a 2002 Newbery Honor Book.  Faerie Maven-Pralou begins the adventure tonight, live in voice.

MONDAY November 12th at 7pm: TUMITHAK OF THE CORRIDORS

- by Charles R. Tanner -
TUMITHAK OF THE CORRIDORS

Monsters from Venus rule the surface while humans cower underground.  Then a hero emerges who says he will fight the "Shrelks."  Old fashioned scifi fun!  Not much science, lots of action.

THURSDAY November 1st at 7pm: THE UPPER BERTH

THE UPPER BERTH
"something ghostly moved in my grip"

“I remember that the sensation as I put my hands forward was as though I were plunging them into the air of a damp cellar, and from behind the curtains came a gust of wind that smelled horribly of stagnant sea-water. I laid hold of something that had the shape of a man’s arm, but was smooth, and wet, and icy cold.”

THURSDAY October 25th at 7pm: HALLOWEEN RITUALS

"Ghosties and ghoulies on the prowl "
HALLOWE'EN RITUALS

Ghosties and ghoulies on the prowl on All Hallows Eve, ready to steal away the innocent, and punish the guilty. Old scores settled in the dead of night, by demons and lost souls who have slipped through the divide between our world and the mystical.

Books are magical things when you let your imagination run riot, as you take in the sights and sounds, and even the smells of a story. The Halloween season is one of the greatest times of all to make use of all of those senses, and ingest everything a story can bring you.

You don’t need Hollywood’s multi-million-dollar blockbusters to scare you at Halloween. All you need is a well-written story, a storytellers magical voice, and an imagination to go with it, and all your fears will come true

Tonight's stories take place on THE night itself...

RITUAL
Bored one Halloween night, two couples follow a map from an old book of ghost stories to an abandoned nineteenth century church. To their horror, the book left out a few key details.

PUMPKIN REX
The King was dimly aware that he’d once had another name, but that no longer mattered. He’d arrived at last, to rule over his realm with his witch-queen at his side. Starting from tonight, time would be obsolete and useless; it would always be “Midnight on Halloween”, and the world would always belong to the October creatures.

THURSDAY October 18th at 7pm: DOORBELLS AT DUSK - Halloween Tales

"Carve your pumpkins and turn on the porch light"
DOORBELLS AT DUSK
Halloween Tales

Halloween frights begin with the sound of… Doorbells at Dusk.

Dusk is when trick or treating begins, join us tonight and enter the world of Halloween chills that is "Doorbells at Dusk", watch out for those trick or treaters.....they could just be harmless, innocent children, out for a night of fun and candy, or they could be monsters, intent on possessing you, attacking you, or invading your home, never to leave! As we stroll further along, and notice the neat, lifelike Halloween decorations in the yard of the most enthusiastic Halloween lover, do those decorations look a bit too.....lifelike....or, is the late hour just playing tricks on your mind? Does that wicked carved jack o lantern seem to be speaking to you, putting murderously evil thoughts in your mind, or are you just getting a little TOO much into the spirit of the season? Does that scarecrow on the next porch appear a bit too lifelike, or have you watched one too many horror movies? And what's the matter with that huge mansion at the end of the street, the one with no Halloween decorations whatsoever, that, as a matter of fact, appears completely deserted? Dare you ring the doorbell, or should you be satisfied with your bounty of Halloween goodies? If you want the answers to these, as well as many more, disturbing questions.. Join us at The Seanchai Library!

Tonight's stories take place on THE night itself...

A PLAGUE OF MONSTERS
Gus wonders why no one else sees the monsters coming to his door.

TRICK & TREAT
Halloween enthusiast Shelley decorates and buys candy for the big night, hoping for lots of Trick-or-Treaters, but she quickly learns the meaning of the phrase "Be careful what you wish for."
