TUESDAY, September 2nd at 7PM: More from L.Frank Baum's THE SEA FAIRIES

Trot and Cap'n Bill have been amazed by all the things they have learned and seen in the underwater realm  of Queen Aquarine and King Anko (including an octopus who is mortified to learn that he's the symbol of the Standard Oil Company). They also encounter a villain called Zog the Magician, a monstrous hybrid of man, animal, and fish. Zog and his sea devils capture them and hold them prisoner. The two protagonists discover that many sailors thought to have been drowned have actually been captured and enslaved by Zog.  

Faerie Maven-Pralou continues their adventure tonight, live in voice.

SUNDAY, August 31st at 1:30pm; TEA TIME at Baker Street

Published in 1927, THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is the final collection of Holmesian short stories penned by Arthur Conan Doyle.  Corwyn, Kayden and Cale continue their mysterious tour of this canon of work TODAY: "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane"

Of the 56 stories in the Holmesian canon, this story is one of only two narrated by the Great Detective 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 master, Fitzroy McPherson, staggers up to them, obviously in agony and wearing only an overcoat and trousers. He collapses, manages to say something about a "lion's mane", and then dies. He is observed to have red welts all over his back, administered by a flexible weapon of some kind, for the marks curve over his shoulder and round his ribs.

Presented live in voice, in the Seanchai fireside room (downstairs).

SATURDAY, August 30th at 9:00am in Kitely: OUT OF TIME


Individuals rewriting their own pasts. Brave souls safeguarding the world today from yesterday. Fools tampering with Einstein's laws of physics. Stories exploring the wonders and perils of time travel, and humanity at its best and worst.
Albert opened his eyes. He felt a soft and
rich carpet beneath him. He stood up and 
opened the door of the machine he and
Dr. Blackman had built and walked out.
His watch read 8:02 p.m. as he closed 
the door for the last time.

We return tot he adventures of Trot on the shores of her California home, where magic and enchantment are lapping at the shore, and little Trot is eager to take a salty taste of it.  Trot and her friend Cap'n Bill spend many of their days roaming the beaches near home, or rowing and sailing along the coast.

One day, Trot wishes that she could see a mermaid; her wish is overheard, and granted the next day. Imagine what could happen next?

SUNDAY at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Published in 1927, THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is the final collection of Holmesian short stories penned by Arthur Conan Doyle.  Corwyn, Kayden and Cale continue their mysterious tour of this canon of work TODAY: "The Adventure of the Creeping Man."

Mr. Trevor Bennett comes to Holmes with a most unusual problem. He is Professor Presbury's personal secretary, and Mr. Bennett is also engaged to the professor's only daughter, Edith.
Professor Presbury is himself engaged to a young lady, Alice Morphy, a colleague's daughter, although he himself is already sixty-one years old. Their impending marriage does not seem to have caused a great scandal; so that is not Mr. Bennett's problem. Nonetheless, the trouble seems to have begun at about the time of Professor Presbury's and Alice's engagement.

Presented live in voice, in the Seanchai fireside room (downstairs).

THURSDAY, August 21st ~ THREE FOR THURSDAY!

It's been a while since we had one of these, but time and tide have brought them together again! Three great story sessions on one humble Thursday . . . all times SLT.


@ 4PM - FIRST NATION TALES with Dubhna and Caledonia downstairs in the Fireside Room
Time to gather once more round the fireside and sit back with a "cuppa" to enjoy more stories of creation, tricksters, mischief and discovery.


@7PM - MINOTAUR Concludes
This is the exciting story of the monster in the maze who, burning with fury and frustration, becomes King Minos's means of spreading terror in the name of Crete. It is the story of strife, torment, romance, and triumph.  The tale of the Minotaur is essentially one of human emotions, foibles, and beliefs. It is about jealousy, anger, and passion magnified and illuminated within the turbulent world of myth occupied by fearless heroes, capricious gods, and ferocious monsters. Shandon Loring presents.



@9PM - ONE NIGHT WITH THE FAE
Caledonia and Shandon "take 2" with tales of sensuality and enchantment seen from the various points of view of beings all caught up in one supernatural night where the line between the worlds get blurred to the point of obscurity, and mischief is in abundance.

WEDNESDAY, August 20th at 7PM: More from CHESTNUT STREET
