    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    If you could sum up The Potato Factory in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, tragic, historic


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

    Mr Bowers performance is perfect for this series. All of the trilogy comes alive with his narration


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the people in power would read these books. It seems to me, we are doomed to repeat the past over and over again. Will we never learn?

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    Would you listen to Wolves of the Calla again? Why?

    I have already listened to the series about 7 times. I will always love the world of Roland and his ka tet. There are other worlds than these!

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.
