THURSDAY November 16th at 7pm: GREAT EXPECTATIONS by Charles Dickens (part two)

"Love. Betrayal. Destiny."
GREAT EXPECTATIONS

Graveyards, poverty, prison ships and chains, and fights to the death, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil - whew!! Hold on to your hats and glasses folks, this is one wild ride! Orphan Pip discovers through lawyer Mr. Jaggers that a mysterious benefactor wishes to ensure that he becomes a gentleman. Reunited with his childhood patron, Miss Havisham , and his first love, the beautiful but emotionally cold Estella, he discovers that the elderly spinster has gone mad from having been left at the altar as a young woman, and has made her charge into a warped, unfeeling heartbreaker.

WEDNESDAY, November 15th at 7pm: UNCOMMON TYPE (Change of Plan!)

CHANGE OF PLAN ... we previously announced tonight's session as selections from Robert Aspirin's Myth Adventures.  But Kayden has come upon something else that he's just busting to share, so Kayden presents . . .

Uncommon Type

by Tom Hanks

Do people still use typewriters? Of course they do, and one of our most beloved actors, Tom Hanks, collects them.  He also writes short stories about typewriters in his book, "Uncommon Type: Some Stories".  He loves how a typewriter makes your words permanent. A character in one of his stories says, "Make the machine a part of your life. Typewriters must be used. Like a boat must sail. What good is a piano you never play?" Join us for "These are the Meditations of my Heart" about a young woman who finds hope in a junked typewriter, and "Steve Wong is Perfect" about a guy who bowls three perfect games and wishes he hadn't.

TUESDAY, November 14th at 7pm: A Selection from A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT

1889 frontispiece by Daniel Carter Beard
In Mark Twain's 1889 novel, a Yankee engineer from Connecticut is accidentally transported back in time to the court of King Arthur, where he fools the inhabitants of that time into thinking that he is a magician, and soon uses his knowledge of modern technology to become a "magician" in earnest, stunning the English of the Early Middle Ages with such feats as demolitions, fireworks, and the shoring up of a holy well. He attempts to modernize the past, but in the end he is unable to prevent the death of Arthur and an interdict against him by the Catholic Church of the time, which grows fearful of his power.

The American humorist wrote the book as a burlesque of Romantic notions of chivalry after being inspired by a dream in which he was a knight himself, severely inconvenienced by the weight and cumbersome nature of his armor.

Shandon is always looking for new OAR files in for Seanchai to use in our open metaverse property, in Kitely.  With over 40 regions under Seanchai Library, and even more specific themed areas, you'd think that we'd be full up. But Shandon is relentless.  Come and see the newest environment he has sought out and installed, when Hypergrid Safari visits THE CITADEL high up over the Seanchai Home World.

Caledonia will be there to greet you, and share a selection from Mark Twain's A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT and offer updates on Seanchai's doings in OS.

TUESDAY, November 7th at 7pm: Selections from TALES FROM THE WHITE HART

Tales from the White Hart is a collection of short stories by science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke, in the "club tales" style.

The style and nature of the stories was inspired by the Jorkens stories of the writer Lord Dunsany, whom Clarke admired and with whom he corresponded, a fact humorously acknowledged by Clarke in his introduction to the first Jorkens omnibus volume.

According to Clarke's preface to the book, the book was his third collection of short stories, which were written between 1953 and 1957 in such diverse spots as New York, Miami, Colombo, London and Sydney.

Corwyn Allen shares some selected stories, live in voice.
