The time-travel series that everyone's talking about.... Jodi Taylor's The Chronicles of St. Mary's is back with a short story. It's Christmas Day 1066, and a team from St Mary's is going to witness the coronation of William the Conqueror. Or so they think.... However, history seems to have different plans for them, and when Max finds herself delivering a child in a peasant's hut, she can't help wondering what history is up to.

Can't get enough of the St. Mary's stories. Witty, charming, fresh and perfectly paced. Can't wait to listen to more!

A cunning young girl comes face to face with an interstellar threat when her mother and grandfather are murdered aboard their ship while making contact with a mysterious entity. Alone, and with no way home, Bellamy makes a deal with an alien intelligence to chase the signal of her mother's soul to a facility light-years away, in the hope she might be resurrected and the two of them reunited.

It's the kind of story that made me fall in love with SciFi years ago. Written with imagination, excellent characterization, wieldiness with words and above all, heart, Chasing The Signal isn't missing a thing. Ledford's on point, bringing the work to audible life. I'm looking forward to more Audible versions of Mauldin's work.

It's Christmas Eve at St Mary's. And all through the house. Nothing is stirring.... Except for Max, Peterson, and Markham, sneaking out at midnight for an assignment that is very definitely off the books. It was ten years ago tonight that senior historians Bashford and Grey went missing in 12th century Jerusalem. So how did they end up in AD 60 Roman Colchester? Max has a theory. Peterson has a plan. Markham has bacon sandwiches. Colchester has Boudicca and her bloodthirsty Iceni hordes.

Couldn't stop listening if I wanted to. Needless to say, I'll be listening to more Jodi Taylor.
