  • The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart

    The year is 1364. Hungry creatures stalk the dark woods of medieval Europe, and both sea and sky teem with unspeakable horrors. There is no foulness, however, no witch nor demon, to rival the grave-robbing twins Hegel and Manfried Grossbart. This is their tale, sad but true.

    Story

    I listened to this some time back, but still include it as a favourite in my Audible library. The narration is great. One brother sounds like a thuggish Eccles (from the Goon Show). I laugh now just thinking about the man the brothers encounter riding a pig in a crypt, for no other reason than it is his wont. It's delightfully black and off-beat, and not at all serious. I look forward to Bullington's future productions.

  • Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography

    When Elisabeth Sladen first appeared as plucky journalist Sarah Jane Smith in the 1973 Doctor Who story "The Time Warrior", little did she know her character would become one of the most enduring of the series’ long history, and one of the all-time favourite companions. She left the TARDIS in 1976, but reprised the role of Sarah Jane many times, as well as touring the world of ‘Doctor Who’ fandom.

    Don't look to this for its literary merits
    , lol. But for generation X'ers with a geeky bent, this is compulsary listening. A fundementally decent, genuine and intelligent woman, and an accomplished actor. All too rare. Sadly missed.

  • The Adventures of Doctor Eszterhazy

    This invaluable collection of Avram Davidson's resonant, witty short stories describes some incidents in the career of many-times-Doctor Engelbert Eszterhazy, loyal subject of the Triune Monarchy of Scythia- Pannonia-Transbalkania, located in a 19th-century Europe whose political landscape will be, after a little reflection, familiar to most fantasy listeners. Enquire with Doctor Eszterhazy into curious matters: the lurley, the old woman who lived with a bear, gingerbread men, dancing goats, and more.

    Story

    Huge eructations, incognito rulers, superannuated hausfraus...I laughed all the way through this. I see now why so many people who are familiar with Avram Davidson's work are so keen to promote it and save it from oblivion. I wish there was more stuff like this around.

    The narrator is truly excellent.

    Listening to The Satires by Juvenal is to come face to face with the corruption, the debauchery, the waste, the sloth, and the mean-spirited greed of ancient Rome...or is it more like modern times? Indeed, these masterpieces of biting social commentary could easily have been written today about any number of metropolitan areas we are all familiar with.

    Overall

    Makes modern satirists look like a bunch of half-wit milksops. Juvenal’s envenomed poetry is excellantly realised by the narrator, who sounds suitably disgusted at the depth and scope of Roman depravity. A classic that has surely grown in subversiveness.
