    The H.M.S. Leopard pulled into the bay of Pulo Batang looking more like a shabby merchant ship that a man-of-war. The crew had endured a calamitous voyage plagued by gaol-fever, pursued by the Dutch Waakzaamheid, and struck by an iceberg. Suffice it to say, Jack Aubrey was ready for home.

    What did you love best about The Fortune of War?

    How each part seemed to lead to another adventure with more serious problems than before


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fortune of War?

    The battle of the American and Royal navy one on one was most memorable


    Have you listened to any of Patrick Tull’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My name is Drood, Eddie Drood, aka Shaman Bond. For generations my family has protected you ordinary mortals against things that lurk in the darkness, just out of sight, but not at all out of mind. Unfortunately, I’ve had a falling out with my near and dear (some of whom were trying to kill me), so my true love - and powerful witch - Molly Metcalf and I are now in the employ of The Department of the Uncanny. We’ve been given an Extremely Important Assignment: attend Casino Infernale, an annual event held by the Shadow Bank, financiers of all global supernatural crime. Our mission: rig the game and bring down the Shadow Bank.

    What did you love best about Casino Infernale?

    I liked the storyline that kept me interested and hard to stop listening


    What other book might you compare Casino Infernale to and why?

    I like the Drood family and all the problems they cross. Nightside is close but this is more in our world


    Which character – as performed by Gideon Emery – was your favorite?

    Mr Emery is a first class reader and he does a great job on all his characters but both Eddie and Molly a credit to his craft


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did both, it was a great storyline and I enjoyed both the highs and lows.

    Look forward to the next in the series and PLEASE don't stopp writting

    Would you listen to The Big Burn again? Why?

    I enjoy books that present little known facts that let the truth fall where it may
    It took awhile for us to get to enlighted thinking on our forest


    What does Robertson Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr Dean is a first class reader who does a great job of making the listener see how it was in difficult times

    Stone Barrington seems to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Manhattan’s elite are beset by a series of clever crimes - and Stone is a material witness - he and his former partner Dino Bacchetti find themselves drawn into the world of high-end security and fraud, where insider knowledge and access are limited to a privileged few, and the wealthy are made vulnerable by the very systems meant to keep them safe.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As usual Mr Woods throws in some twist and turns


    What does Tony Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Without a doubt Mr Roberts is a master of his craft, I can't think of a higher compliment to give him, A true professional who takes the time to each character to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed all of it and too many to mention

    Cape Colony is proving a tiresome assignment for Captain Kydd's daring commander-in-chief. Rumours of popular unrest in the Spanish colonies and of a treasure hoard spur him to assemble a makeshift invasion fleet and launch a bold attack on the capital of the Viceroyalty of the River Plate, Buenos Aires. Navigating the treacherous bars and mud flats of the river, the British invasion force lands and wins a battle against improbable odds, taking the capital and the silver. But nothing is as simple as it seems here....

    The long-planned raid on the heart of the Grik Empire has grown more ambitious - and dangerously ill-defined. Only Matthew Reddy, commander of the old destroyer USS Walker, seems focused on its original intent. Many Lemurians see an opportunity to reconquer their sacred homeland, which was stolen long ago, and have no intention of simply striking a blow and then pulling back. Others, Lemurian and human, have their own agendas - which may not be in the best interests of the Alliance.

    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    Again he does a great job of bringing each charcters to life Keep up the good work

    Yes, but life won't permit that, I did burn thru it as fast as I could

Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    Modernity developed only in the West - in Europe and North America. Nowhere else did science and democracy arise; nowhere else was slavery outlawed. Only Westerners invented chimneys, musical scores, telescopes, eyeglasses, pianos, electric lights, aspirin, and soap. The question is, why? Unfortunately, that question has become so politically incorrect that most scholars avoid it. But acclaimed author Rodney Stark provides the answers in this sweeping new look at Western civilization.

    Revealing the differences of the various religons and their views on progress


    What does Kevin Foley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
