    The Doctor and Antimony arrive on the planet Santiny, just as it comes under attack by General Tannis and his Canisian battle fleet. Meanwhile, his other companion, Ace, finds herself under the guidance of the mysterious Casmus, who seems to foresee an important and unusual role in store for her. As the adventure lurches from Santiny to contemporary London and on to Gallifrey, it becomes clear that the Canisians' next target is to be Earth.

    Story

    This is a strange story. It's heavily steeped in the mythology of the Doctor Who series, especially the classic series, and casual Doctor Who fans might not understand everything going on. On the other hand, those that are very knowledgable about the Doctor Who mythos might be put off by the heavy changes made to the background of the universe.

    But it has Stephen Fry as a Time Lord, and that pretty much wipes away any concerns about this drama.

    In all honesty, it has some amazing acting performances, and the story is just a lot of fun from start to finish. I highly recommend it to Doctor Who fans.

    Bob Howard is a special operative for the British agency called The Laundry, and his task is to stop a rogue billionaire from using an artifact, known as Gravedust, with the power to reanimate the dead. The U.S. Black Agency sends the lethal Ramona Random to aid Bob’s mission, but she seems to have a different agenda.

    Torah Cottrill says: "Fabulous"
    "Another great book from Charles Stross"

    Aside from a few awkward perspective transitions (which the book later attempts to clarify), this is a fantastic addition to the Laundry Files series, as well as a sharp parody of the James Bond formula.

  • The Importance of Being Earnest: Free Performance

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    Susan says: "So much fun!"
    "Fantastic rendition of a classic play"

    A precursor to the Wodehousian style as well as the screwball comedy, this production by the LA Theatreworks is wonderful.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Story

    I love Dune, and I've read it several times (although around Book II it always feels like a slog). The narrator is great in this version, but the character as supposed to be voiced by other actors. However, for some reason, the characters are sometimes voiced by actors and sometimes performed by the narrator. Sometimes, this changes in the middle of a scene. I actually generally prefer the narrator's performances, but it's sometimes hard to get a sense of who is speaking when things change all the time. An mildly irritating mar on an otherwise enjoyable audiobook.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    I have loved the Dresden Files books for a decade. Listening to James Marsters sounds much like I always imagined Harry Dresden sounding like, and his performance makes a book I love even more enjoyable.
