SUNDAY, May 19th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME on The Lighter Side


You know, it's Spring.  And we are feeling the need for a break from Murder, Mayhem, and Death. So today we take a brief departure from the world of mysteries and detectives to relish an hour with a favorite: H.H. Munro, better known as "Saki" - one of the masters of the late 19th, early 20th C short story.

Munro (1870-1916) was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirize Edwardian society and culture. He is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling, he himself influenced A. A. Milne, Noël Coward and P. G. Wodehouse.

Da5id Abbot, Savannah Blindside, and Caledonia Skytower share an alfresco buffet of short adventures, and tales of manners by the noted author, including:
  • The Remoulding of Groby Lington
  • The Match-Maker
  • Hermann the Irascible - A Story of the Great Weep
  • Mrs. Packletide's Tiger
  • The Stampeding of Lady Bastable
  • The Sex That Doesn't Shop





THIS WEEK at Seanchai Library

THURSDAY May 16th at 7pm: THE CAVE GIRL by Edgar Rice Burroughs pt3

"She was naked except for a bit of leather hide"
THE CAVE GIRL pt3
by Edgar Rice Burroughs

In an instant there sloughed from the heart and mind and soul of Waldo Emerson Smith-Jones every particle of civilization and culture and refinement that has required countless ages in the building, stripping him naked, age on age, down to the primordial beast that has begot his first human progenitor.
Nadara leaned forward with parted lips, drinking in every detail of this conflict between the two beasts fighting for the possession of her...

Caledonia continues sharing adventures from author Dorothy Gilman's clairvoyant countess...

A journalist returns from Africa, inexplicably ill.  Medical tests reveal nothing, yet the man is wasting towards death.  Desperate, he comes to Madame Karitska to try and discover why he is dying.  Can they discover the answer before it is too late?

For the hunted and the haunted, Madame Karitska’s shabby downtown apartment becomes a haven, where brilliant patterns of violence, greed, passion, and strange obsessions mix and disintegrate with stunning, kaleidoscopic beauty.

Presented live, on Stream.

SUNDAY, May 12th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street

THIS WEEK: The Adventure of The Lion's Mane

From THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (1927),notable as one of the few Holmes stories narrated by Holmes himself.

Holmes is enjoying his retirement in Sussex when one day at the beach, he meets his friend Harold Stackhurst, the headmaster of a nearby preparatory school called The Gables. No sooner have they met than Stackhurst's science teacher, Fitzroy McPherson, staggers up to them, clearly in agony and wearing only an overcoat and trousers. He collapses, manages to say something about a "lion's mane", and then succumbs. He is observed to have red welts all over his back, possibly administered by a flexible weapon of some kind, for the marks curve over his shoulder and round his ribs.


Moments later, Ian Murdoch, a mathematics teacher at The Gables, comes up behind them. He has not seen the attack, and has only just arrived at the beach from the school. Holmes sees a couple of people far up the beach, but thinks they are much too far away to have had anything to do with McPherson's death. How did he die?

Savannah Blindside, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower, live on stream from the Seanchai Fireside Room.

WEDNESDAY, May 8th at 7pm: Meet MIDSUMMER on LEA 2



A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most enchanting plays and now also an LEA project created by Aoife Lorefield.

Tonight, Aoife offers a tour of her Midsummer Night's creations, with an eye to sharing her plans for song and story on the sim. Midsummer has just opened, is still in its final construction stages, and offers a variety of opportunities for the Seanchai Community.

Visit the Astrologer's Tower, the Inn of Infinite Dreams, and the Faerie Hall. Explore the workshop where the rude mechanicals craft their play and the stage where they present it. Wander through the gardens.

If you love listening to stories, there will be readings throughout May and June. And if you love to write, read, sing, or otherwise perform, there are opportunities here as well!

The tour, replete with bits of Shakespeare and random poems, will last an hour. Please feel free to stay and explore. And if you do have ideas about performance, stay and talk with Aoife!

Teleport from Seanchai on Holly Kai (there will be a panel there) or meet us at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA2/127/127/26


TUESDAY, May 6th at 7pm: More from KALEIDOSCOPE

Caledonia continues sharing adventures from author Dorothy Gilman's clairvoyant countess...

When a brilliant young violinist dies in a horrific accident, Madame Karitska has only to hold the victim’s instrument in her hands to perceive the shocking truth. But when an insecure wife asks whether her husband will abandon her to join a sinister cult, Madame Karitska–as wise as she is lovely–chooses not to reveal all that she foresees. And when an attaché case is suddenly dropped into her lap by a man fleeing a crowded subway, she knows it’s time to consult her good friend Detective-Lieutenant Pruden.

A nine-year-old accused of murder, a man dying a slow death by witchcraft– for the hunted and the haunted, Madame Karitska’s shabby downtown apartment becomes a haven, where brilliant patterns of violence, greed, passion, and strange obsessions mix and disintegrate with stunning, kaleidoscopic beauty.

THIS WEEK: The Problem of Thor Bridge


Neil Gibson, the Gold King and former Senator from "some Western state", approaches Holmes to investigate the murder of his wife Maria in order to clear his children's governess, Grace Dunbar, of the crime. It soon emerges that Mr. Gibson's marriage had been unhappy and he treated his wife very badly. He had fallen in love with her when he met her in Brazil, but soon realized they had nothing in common. He became attracted to Miss Dunbar; since he could not marry her, he had attempted to please her in other ways, such as trying to help people less fortunate than himself.

Maria Gibson was found lying in a pool of blood on Thor Bridge with a bullet through the head and note from the governess, agreeing to a meeting at that location, in her hand. A recently discharged revolver with one shot fired is found in Miss Dunbar's wardrobe. Holmes agrees to look at the situation in spite of the damning evidence.
