Happy Sunday! Check out And They All Lived Happily Ever After! by Crystal Connor
Fourteen short stories of horror, science fiction, and fantasy; 65,306 words of terror by a single author who clearly intends to one day be known as a Master in the genre.
Listening to …And They All Lived Happily Ever After! is a completely different experience than the amazing visual journey created by the sequential art and graphic elements that one will enjoy while reading the book. The audio adaptation is a nice complement to the paperback.

On August 20th 2014, at 11:20pm, P.G. Holyfield — author of Murder at Avedon Hill — lost his very short battle with cholangiocarcinoma, a particularly vicious and deadly form of cancer. He was 46 years old.
Effective now and for the immediate future, 100% of all donations we receive to Murder at Avedon Hill or made directly in P.G.s name will be provided to a fund set up to help care for the three young daughters left behind. Normally, we keep 25% of all donations. But in Patrick’s case (Patrick is the P in PG) all proceeds we collect go straight to them, no admin fees.
To say that we’re saddened and shocked by this is an understatement of the highest degree. A giant P.G.-sized hole is left in the lives of his extended family, to which I am deeply honored to be a part of. If you’ve listened to his work — here or in various other places, as the man was prolific — then you are part of it as well.
Rest well, my friend.

Veronica Giguere has a new title she’s narrated. It’s a joint effort between her and Cedric Johnson, and it’s entitled Broken:
The city of Charlton is a city divided: Upper Charlton, where the rich and powerful work and play, and Charlton Terrace, where the poor are kept from crossing the ever-widening economic gap by corporate dynasties controlling the flow of capital, their security firms controlling the city police, and numerous gangs controlling the streets.
Miranda Garren has a chance of escaping the Terrace’s oppression and making a new life for herself with the help of an old family friend and his plans for advanced medical technology. Criofan Byrne is the city’s favorite son, champion of the local boxing circuit and heir to a corporate empire. Their separate worlds are brought together and destroyed around them in a single night by the leader of the Cabezas de Muerte gang, who will stop at nothing in order to make a name for himself in Upper Charlton.
Forced into using the experimental prosthetic technology Miranda had been working on, Criofan must put aside everything he knew of his privileged existence and work with Miranda. Together, they must find a way to escape the machinations of the cruel, vindictive gang leader, the life he’s thrust them into, each other and themselves—and reclaim control of what remains of their lives.

David “Grizzly” Smith has a penchant for narrating the classics. This time, it’s On Liberty, published originally 145 years ago.
“On Liberty,” a seminal work by philosopher John Stuart Mill. Mill felt there were no definite standards for defining what society has standing to regulate and punish, and what is solely the business of individual to choose for themselves, if they accept the consequences to themselves. It is a discussion that needs to be remembered, and it is a discussion that needs to be revived in the modern world. Liberty still matters.
