City of Dreams episode 6, "MCSD 00121J" (2001)

This audio play was written by J. Michael Straczynski, the creator of Babylon 5. It is a Seeing Ear Theatre Production lasting 34 minutes. Description (source):

cover city of dreams #6"From: Manasee County Sheriff's Department, Manasee County, New Jersey

The original audiotape of which this (enclosed) file is a copy was found near the site of the Clarefield community residence 23 August 2000 by Sgt. Emile Jackson and the original copy was forwarded to the MCSD forensics lab for analysis. A second copy has been forwarded to the FBI Crime Lab in Roanoake, VA for more detailed audio study.

In light of the recent tragic events of Clarefield, we appreciate any assistance your office and listeners can provide in establishing any of the identities of the persons recorded on this tape. Needless to say, any information emerging from this investigation will be held in the strictest confidence. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

Sincerely, Captain J.J. Durham, Manasee County Sheriff's Department"

Marilyn or the Monster (2000)

"Jack is haunted by a very real - and very ghostly - Marilyn. But he can't sleep at night. He is terrified of an unseen monster. In fact, Jack hasn't had a good night's sleep in over 30 years...since before he was in Vietnam. His psychiatrist tells him that he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. But the real problem lies much deeper - and holds a far greater truth than Jack can possibly imagine..."

This audio play is based on the story "Marilyn" by Jack Dann, printed in the 10th Anniversary Eidolon, reprinted in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and collected in The Year's Best Fantasy, 14th Annual Collection and Year's Best Dark Fantasy, 2002 edition.

Murder Mysteries cover Neil Gaiman's Murder Mysteries (1999)

"In this mystery noir set in heaven's City of Angels before the fall, the first crime has been committed. It is an awful one. While the angelic hosts labor to create the world and its workings, one of their number is mysteriously slain by one of their own. Raguel, Angel of Vengeance, is mandated by Lucifer to discover both motive and murderer in this holy dominion that had so recently known no sin."

Rambles review


The Ship Who Sang (1986)

Excerpt from an interview with Anne McCaffrey (2002):

"I was out in Berkeley the year I won a Hugo, and Ray Bradbury said that he had written The Snows Of Kilimanjaro because he could not accept Hemingway's suicide, so writing that story was a way to exorcise his grief. I realised that I had written The Ship Who Sang as a way to get over my grief over my father's rather early death. He died in 1963, having fought in three wars. I was the girl in my family, and I came from Boston, old-fashioned, and girls were not supposed to be somebody, so he died before I could prove to him that I was somebody. In 1986, I think it was, in Brighton, they were doing a documentary." McCaffrey laughs and says theatrically, "I was a filmstar! We had BBC cameramen down while we were reading The Ship Who Sang. Now I can never get through the last four or five paragraphs so I had someone to read it with, Tom Christopher [sic]. He played the guy with the feathers on his head in Buck Rogers. These cameramen were filming the last part of it which Tom was reading, and I looked at them, and they were crying. I went, "Hey! BBC cameramen crying because of a story? Wow!"



Thom Christopher as Sal in Dame LorraineDame Lorraine (1983)

Thom Christopher on his role as Sal in Dame Lorraine, in an interview for the 1983 yearbook of the Thom Christopher Fan Club:

"I would say that the most difficult role for me up to this point has been Sal in "Dame Lorraine" -- an original play by Steve Carter presented at the Los Angeles Actors Theatre. Playing a Black-Italian who is passing as white presented great challenges and difficulties, forcing me to journey into areas of my actor's thinking and feeling that I've never had to use before. Add the fact that I made acting choices that forced me to challenge myself and stretch in the ninety-plus minutes I was on stage. My character was one of the first on stage and he never left until the end. Much listening had to be properly motivated for me due to Sal's "ever-aware presence" on stage. In all, it was a very satisfying creative journey into myself."
