About Us

This show is an offshoot of the CraftLit podcast, bringing you all the book-chat and audiobook audio with none of the personal and crafty chit-chat you find on CraftLit. If you like audiobooks and you WANT to like classic literature, then this show was designed for you. The show is on semi-permanent hiatus. If you're looking for more books, checkout CraftLit. At the beginning of each episode you'll hear a timecode for the end-of-crafty-chat and the start-of -book talk so you can skip to the bits you want.

BOO!--Masque of the Red Death

BONUS EPISODE-"Masque of the Red Death", because... tis the season! And because Jon Scholes ROCKS! And to celebrate, I thought I should give you easy links to some other seasonal audio: Link to "Cask of Amontillado" episode Link to "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" episodes Link to Dracula episodes on CraftLit, and Dracula episodes on Just-the-Books The first story I did for Chilling Tales for Dark Nights, "Death in a Dark Mirror" And while I can't knit right now, if you can or want to, you should check out Meg's latest Grounded sock—Jenn's Subtle Majicks. UPDATE: I had this all set to go out automatically, but I know word has been spreading on the interwebs and my radio silence while taking an hour nap this morning incited panic on Facebook. The upshot: I'm fine. I'm typing slowly with one hand b/c my left arm is useless, probably for two or three more days. After getting the flu and then pneumonia last winter, I got flu and pneumonia shots Tuesday morning... in the same arm. This is ...
