Very enjoyable story brilliantly performed.
The quite explicit merging of game mechanics into what would be an old school fantasy story is very well done

Ever since Martin Banks and his fellow computer geeks discovered that reality is just a computer program to be happily hacked, they've been jaunting back and forth through time, posing as medieval wizards and having the epic adventures that other nerds can only dream of having. But even in their wildest fantasies, they never expected to end up at the mercy of the former apprentice whom they sent to prison for gross misuse of magic and all-around evil behavior.

In this dark and gritty collection - featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman - nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil.... Unfortunately, that's exactly what makes it so easy to cross the line.

What made the experience of listening to The Battling Prophet the most enjoyable?

It is a great story well told

What other book might you compare The Battling Prophet to and why?

I tend to compare all other crime novels to the Bony series

What about Peter Hosking’s performance did you like?

Brilliant as usual

Really well performed, had trouble separating the story from sir Arthur's which it has many inconsistencies with... And I guessed the end which kind of spoiled it...
A great story if taken by its self and see it as an adventure story with a bit of detective fiction

No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

It was a good series of lectures well read by the author ... About the only thing I disliked was the canned applause after each lecture... So it was well worth the listen even if you are already familiar with Dr Steven Novella's work.
