TUESDAY, April 1st at 7 PM: THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND ... Continues!

“A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom."  —Neil Gaiman, Newbery Award-winning author of The Graveyard Book

“September is a clever, fun, stronghearted addition to the ranks of bold, adventurous girls.  Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic." —Tamora Pierce, author of The Immortals series
“A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale -- full of oddments, whimsy, and joy." -- Holly Black, author of Zombies vs. Unicorns and the Spiderwick Chronicles

“When I saw that this book reminds me simultaneously of E. Nesbit, James Thurber, and the late Eva Ibbotson, I don't mean to take anything awy from its astonishing originality.  It's a charmer from the first page, managing the remarkable parlay of being at once ridiculously funny and surprisingly suspenseful.  Catherynne Valente is a find, at any age!" -- Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn
“[Fairyland creates] a world as bizarre and enchanting as any Wonderland or Oz and a heroine as curious, resourceful and brave as any Alice or Dorothy. Complex, rich and memorable.” -- Kirkus, Starred Review

"This book is quite simply a gold mine." -- Booklist, Starred Review
Faerie Maven-Pralou continues the adventure this week, live in voice.

MONDAY March 31st at 7pm: FROM AN ALIEN POINT OF VIEW - Classic Science Fiction


When humans interact with aliens, who are actually alien, we run into the fact that we're as weird to them as they are to us. This can cause the most remarkable misunderstandings....

TONIGHT part 1 and 2 of:

“SKitty”
by Mercedes Lackey
The Captain thought that their shipscat would be an asset at the trade negations, so he ordered Dick to bring her with them. Dick had warned her repeatedly not to hunt on this planet, but what cat ever does what a human tells her to?

SUNDAY, March 30th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Corwyn, Kayden, and Cale are back with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmesian short story collection titled "HIS LAST BOW: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes."  TODAY: Part 2 of "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot."

Holmes and Dr. Watson find themselves in Cornwall one spring for the former’s health, but the holiday ends with a bizarre event. Mr. Mortimer Tregennis, a local gentleman, and Mr. Roundhay, the local vicar, come to Holmes to report that Tregennis’s two brothers have gone insane, and his sister has died. Tregennis had gone to visit them in their village (Tredannick Wollas), played whist with them, and then left. When he came back in the morning, he found them still sitting in their places at the table, the brothers, George and Owen, laughing and singing, and the sister, Brenda, dead.

TUESDAY, March 18th at 7:00pm: THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND ... Continues

"In this modern fairytale, an insouciant, “somewhat heartless” 12-year-old girl from Omaha visits Fairyland and accepts a quest to rescue its inhabitants from the rule-mad Marquess. September’s father’s in the army, and her mother works a factory shift. When the Green Wind arrives at her kitchen window and invites her to Fairyland, the “ill-tempered and irascible” September eagerly accepts. Soon she’s flying on the back of the Leopard of Little Breezes, while Green Wind warns her she may be “ticketed or executed, depending on the mood of the Marquess,” if she tramples on any rules. Also, she must be prepared to make sacrifices and she must never tell her true name. After solving a puzzle, September passes into Fairyland, encounters myriad fantastical creatures and meets her soon-to-be helpers, a red dragonlike Wyvern and a blue jinnlike Marid. When the Marquess co-opts her to retrieve a magical sword from the deadly Worsted Wood and holds the Wyvern and Marid hostage, September sacrifices everything to save her friends."
--Kirkus Review

MONDAY, March 17th at 7:00pm: THE QUIET MAN

Yes friends, It is time for that story again:  Maurice Walsh's The Quiet Man.  It's one of Caledonia's favorite stories (written by Walsh in 1933), and one of her favorite movies ( in 1951, winning two Academy Awards).

 Sean is a quiet, peace-loving man...not above stoppin' for a moment in the fields and just watching the wind blow through the grass, and see the swell of the distant sea.  But there was no mistaking!  Sean was not lazy, just quiet.  But when he falls in head over heels for lovely, red-haired Ellen, sister to a bullying local landowner, Sean's peace is about to be sorely tested.  And everyone is about to find out just how quiet, and patient a "quiet man" can be.  (Reading this year from Walsh's less "American" version).

Caledonia Skytower, live in voice.

SUNDAY, March 16th at 6:00pm: MAGICLAND STORYTIME

Caledonia takes the stage at the Golden Horseshoe with more from her original stories about Ireland from her upcoming short story collection  A TRIO OF IRISH TALES II.

Stories from this collection include:

The Fairy Tree - Young Liam is back! (from The Shadow by the Gate) Armed with a new sense of belief in the unseen, he confidently goes back into the Wicklow countryside and discovers the power and the danger of getting what you wished for.


A Rock Beyond - Patrick is always left behind, or so it seems.  Eager to prove himself, he vows to spend the night at Teach Duinn, the gathering place of the dead on the most western crag of Irish soil.  What will Pat find beneath the rocks, among the waves, and beneath the cliffs?  Will he find himself?  Or perhaps he'll discover more than he bargained for!

Lady Frances is a lone, unwed woman denied a rich inheritance on account of her gender. She does, however, carry valuable jewels with her. It is also her habit to write to her old governess, Miss Dobney, every other week, but for the past five weeks, there has not been a word from her. She has left the Hôtel National for parts unknown.

Presented live in voice, downstairs in the Seanchai Fireside Room.

Corwyn, Kayden, and Cale continue with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's for Holmesian short story collection titled "HIS LAST BOW: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes."  TODAY: "The Adventure of the Dying Detective."

Dr. Watson is called to 221B Baker Street to tend Holmes, who is apparently dying of a rare Asian disease contracted while he was on a case at Rotherhithe. Watson is shocked, having heard nothing about his friend’s illness. Mrs. Hudson says that he has neither eaten nor drunk anything in three days.
Upon arriving, Watson finds Holmes in his bed looking very ill and gaunt indeed, and Holmes proceeds to make several odd demands of Watson. He is not to come near Holmes, for the illness is highly contagious. He will seek no help save from the man whom Holmes names. He will wait until six o’clock before Holmes names him. When Watson objects and tries to leave for help, Holmes musters enough strength to leap out of bed, and lock the door, taking the key. So, Watson is forced to wait. Holmes seems delirious at times.  Will the Great Detective survive? or will this most recent adventure prove too lethal even for him?

Corwyn, Kayden, and Cale continue with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's for Holmesian short story collection titled "HIS LAST BOW: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes."  TODAY: "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans."

The monotony of thick smog-shrouded London is broken by a sudden visit from Holmes’s brother Mycroft. He has come about some missing, secret submarine plans. Seven of the ten pages — three are still missing — were found with Arthur Cadogan West’s body. He was a young clerk in a government office at Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, whose body was found next to the Underground tracks near the Aldgate tube station, his head crushed.  The three missing pages by themselves could enable one of Britain’s enemies to build a Bruce-Partington submarine. Holmes must solve the mystery and regain possession of the missing plans for the safety of the Empire.

Presented live in voice, downstairs in the Seanchai Fireside Room.
