PDP #24 - "The Woman in White" by Wilkie Collins, Part 1

Tue, 27 Feb 2007 04:10:00 PST

Part 1 of the novel, "The Woman in White" a serialized mystery/suspense novel by Wilkie Collins, a contemporary of Charles Dickens, who also wrote "The Fatal Cradle" heard as an earlier short story podcast.

The novel is one of the first to be set up in an original way for the time period, in that it has different narrators to tell different parts of the story. In the introduction it is explained that we shall hear the tale as if we were a Judge listening to eye witnesses.

This has been touted as the first mystery novel by some and was turned into a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber which had sporadic runs with different Companies in 2004, 2005 and 2006. I; however, shall not be singing in the podcast so if you can stomach that disappointment, come along for a fun ride into mystery and suspense.

File size is 11 MB and the podcast is 30 minutes and 27 seconds in length.

Manual download link here.

On an administrative note, I will be returning to my once a week release schedule, thank you for hanging in there with me. When I started my podcast I was one of the few podcasts out there for audiobooks, I've got increased competition now which has gotten more media attention than my own humble podcast so I appreciate you spending the time to stick with me. If you'd like to help spread the word please see my Link to me page, add me to your delicious or other social bookmarking places or just tell all your friends.

Thanks for listening!

One of my gifts to you this season is this story which I have always admired, about Christmas gift giving with that O. Henry touch.

This 20th show is 14 minutes, 12 seconds long and 5.1 MB in size.

I have another podcast (and perhaps even a surprise) before Christmas but in case I miss you, Happy Holidays!

PDP #19 - "A Coward" by Guy de Maupassant

Wed, 08 Feb 2006 16:34:55 PST

This week I'm late in releasing the show, my apologies for any who might have been waiting on it. I have only the holiday busy season to account for it, having gone out of town for Thanksgiving for a week and come back to much work to catch up on for my online stores. I shall still be releasing next week's podcast on Monday so you will get a one two punch of podcasts in quick succession.

This week's tale was suggested by listener, John. It's a thought provoking piece on what makes a coward set in the context of a man about to fight a duel. I quite liked it. EDIT: Caution, this is not regular Christmas fare and may be depressing to some.

It runs 18 minutes and 11 seconds long and is 6.5 MB in file size.

PDP #18 - The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll

Mon, 30 Oct 2006 20:24:07 PST

I've always liked this poem and find myself thinking of it whenever about to broach a subject... "The time has come..."

I suppose it's an odd choice for Thanksgiving week for the US folks, but one can be thankful one is not an oyster!

Delayed Show

Wed, 02 Nov 2005 10:04:41 PST

My apologies for the delayed show this week. A friend passed away last week and yesterday was his services. His life was cut short by complications from leukemia even after a bone marrow transplant months before had looked promising enough that he had even returned to work. His rapid decline in health was a bit of a shock, and also in some ways I don't think you are ever prepared for the news of a death of a friend.

He was a fantastic artist and a wonderful man and was supportive of my art as he was of every artist with whom he came into contact. So, I will be releasing a show this week as I know he would've wanted me to keep creating.

Plus, he would have appreciated a good tale of creepy adventure.
