WEDNESDAY, January 23rd at 7PM: THE JENNIFER MORGUE Continues

THE JENNIFER MORGUE offers a wonderful pastiche on both the world of James Bond and a
wonderful mimicking of Ian Fleming’s style of writing, Stross produces a novel that also evokes Lovecraftian overtones that is delightfully entertaining to read. 

In true Bond style, Bob is (reluctantly) partnered with an American agent – in this case a stunningly beautiful woman who also just happens to be a soul-sucking succubus from another dimension. Which, being the case, marks Bob’s mission somewhat differently to those of Bond: not only must he stop the bad guys and come through this at best shaken, he must totally avoid being stirred towards getting the girl…

Corwyn Allen continues selections from the adventures of Bob Howard, geekish demonology hacker extraordinaire, from Charles Stross' Laundry Files series, live in voice.

TUESDAY, January 22nd at 7pm: THE TIME KEEPER Continues

"You marked the minutes, but did you use them wisely? To be still? To cherish? To be grateful? To lift and be lifted? . . . find two souls on earth, one who wants too much time and one who wants too little. Teach them what you have learned."

Dor, the inventor of time, has been transported to our current time in search of two voices - one young female, and one older male. He must figure out how their lives are destined to intertwine and teach them the hardest lesson of all, the one that he himself has just begun to understand: the true value of time.

Kayden and Caledonia continue Mitch Albom's modern fable, live in voice.

THURSDAY January 3rd at 7pm: THE ICE DRAGON

"Winter Is Coming"
THE ICE DRAGON

In George R.R. Martin's world of A Song of Ice and Fire the ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.

Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara's home. And only a winter child—and the ice dragon who loved her—could save her world from utter destruction.



WHAT'S UP? This Week at Seanchai Libraries



First of all - Happy New Year!

It was a wild and magical December with this year's Dickens Project. What with the timing of the holiday and the closing of Dickens, we are making this a light week.  Don't panic!  We'll be back in full swing next week with several new series and plenty of stories to share.

This week there will only be one session, Thursday, January 3rd at 7pm with Shandon
THE ICE DRAGON by George R.R. Martin

In George R.R. Martin's world of A Song of Ice and Fire the ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.

And be sure and take some time to visit the plein-air exhibition of artist Luis Royo's illustrations for the novella, just up the stairs from the Library on the Gallery front lawn.
