Frankenstein on Fantasy Faire Radio

“I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.”
~ from Frankenstein, by Mary Wollenscroft Shelley

Frankenstein is back! Last year FFR partnered with Seanchai Library for a live broadcast of a radio drama adaptation of the Mary Shelley classic. Did we record it and produce it? You BET we did! We will be airing this 2-hour presentation twice, and you won’t want to miss it. The cast features Zander Greene, Elrik Merlin, David Abbot, Corwyn Allen, Caledonia Skytower, with Shandon Loring as Frankenstein’s Creation.

Saturday, October 19th beginning at 2pm slt
Sunday, October 20th beginning at 11am

The CocoaJava Cafe in New Babbage will be one of the venues hosting listening parties during both presentations. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Babbage%20Canals/38/75/106

The CocoaJava Cafe (A Writer’s Haven~A Reader’s Retreat~A Bohemian’s Rhapsody) is a casual Steampunk/Victorian literary coffeehouse. Authors and bookworms are often found lounging on floor pillows by the fireplace or sipping a drink at the cafe tables. The CocoaJava features a state of the art absinthe fountain, and red wine served from… well, it’s a pipe dream. Oh and mind the shop cat, he’s odd.

More information on listening parties will be posted closer to the broadcast date. Check the Fantasy Faire website for details as they emerge: https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/

What I’m Reading For Book Lovers Day 2019

I’ll be finishing “Absinthe, Alewives & Alchemy” by Kate Henriott and Ted Jauw today. I met the authors at a Michigan Steam Expo earlier this year, and found them both utterly delightful folk. Kate shared some of her homemade absinthe with me, and I really need to track her down again to buy a few bottles. We talked about heritage cooking, wine making, gardening and herbs, and I found so many connections with her. It took me a while to get to the book, and then it got set aside for a while, half-read, but it’s time to settle back in for the rest of the story, while sipping one of my own weird little recipes: a huge mug of boiling water laced with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, a LOT of cinnamon and honey. Lovely stuff and seems to awaken something in me.

You can have a sneak preview of the book below. What are you reading today?
