    Aided by the powerful magic of Vagel, the evil Arch-Imager, the merciless armies are marching against the kingdom of Mordant. In its hour of greatest need, two unlikely champions emerge. One is Geraden, whose inability to master the simplest skills of Imagery has made him a laughingstock. The other is Terisa Morgan, transferred to Mordant from a Manhattan apartment by Geraden’s faulty magic. Together, Geraden and Terisa discover undreamed-of talents within themselves—talents that make them more than a match for any Imager... including Vagel himself. Unfortunately, those talents also mark them for death.

    What made the experience of listening to A Man Rides Through the most enjoyable?

    I read the book years ago. I still have copies in storage. It was one of the most enjoyable books I've ever read and listened to.


    What other book might you compare A Man Rides Through to and why?

    There is no comparison. Stephen Donaldson is beyond compare. One of my favorite writers


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

    His tonality and inflection bring the story to life for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In a world where mirrors lead to horrors or pleasures, Terisa and Geraden must save the king, the kingdom and themselves.

    Will Lee ran from a life of Southern wealth and privilege to spend a peaceful summer on the coast of Ireland. But there is no peace in this beautiful, troubled land … Restless and dissatisfied, Will dreams of shipbuilding and sailing on crystal-blue waters. Then an explosion of senseless violence drags the young American drifter into a lethal game of terror and revenge. Now Will Lee must run for his life from a bloody past that is not his own.

    What did you like best about Run Before the Wind? What did you like least?

    If there'd only been one reader, it would have been better. I found the two readers confusing, the way they jump back and forth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Will


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrators confused me with the back and forth.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    Would you listen to Chiefs again? Why?

    Yes, I would. I fell in love with Stuart Woods' writing when I saw Chiefs (the miniseries) back in the early 80's. I would love to get ALL of the Will Lee's series books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chiefs?

    When the FBI man trips over the handle bar of Sonny Butts' motorcycle.


    What about Mark Hammer’s performance did you like?

    He has a very distinctive voice.

  • Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold!: Magic Kingdom of Landover, Book 1

    Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement promised. But after he purchased it, Ben Holiday learned that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention.

    The kingdom was in ruin. The Barons refused to recognize the king, and the peasants were without hope.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold! to be better than the print version?

    I have to say that this edition of Magic Kingdom for Sale - Sold is one of the best versions of this book I've ever heard. Sometimes, I would get so wrapped up in Dick Hill's voice that I would lose total sense of time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Willow is my favorite character and was even when I read the books. I think she's one of the best "heroines" I've read.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Ben was my favorite character performed by Dick Hill.
