great story Lawrence
Thank, Mark. It’s an old one. I should probably re-record it but I’m glad you liked it.
I definitely enjoyed this opisode. “A Word From The World” brought home memories of my own childhood year in Illinois and digging through the drifts in the hopes of finding distant lands in need of rescuing. Your description of a fictional autobiography is also very apt, and a wonderful study in how a writer turns life into adventures of one sort or another.
“The Christmas Spirit” brought home memories of a different sort, ones not nearly so pleasant. My dad was an alcoholic, and my family quite dysfunctional. Scars, both physical and emotional, serve as milestones of my early years. That being said, Mr. Lovegrove’s prose flows quite well and his spec fic descriptions of the father’s gift are spot on. I found myself tensing as Dylan took those first few steps down the road where shadows live.
All in all, a great episode!
Thanks, Sandra. Another listener mentioned on the TtT Facebook page that he used to dig into the Minnesota snows for Morlocks. Given my personal experience of Minnesota winters, I could believe that whole worlds of critters and beasties could live down there.
