Do you like Shakespeare? Do you like Audio Drama? Are you looking for a little of both? Then this is your lucky day! The Pirates over at Flying Island Press’ Pirates Cove have started a new audio production, and this time they’re doing their own version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And part of what makes this version special is that I am a member of the cast!

So fire up your favorite podcatcher and go to Pirates Cove and subscribe! Act 1 Scene 1 has just been released, so this is the ideal time to get in at the beginning of the story. And when Act 2 is delivered, you’ll be able to listen to my performance as Oberon, King of the Fae. Along the way, you’ll be able to listen to plenty of excellent voice actors in this production.

I hope you’ll subscribe and enjoy the show.


And so it begins! Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris have released the first of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences: Tales from the Archives – OneThe Evil that befell Sampson…

It is revealed just how Miss Braun ended up being exiled from her native country, New Zealand, and working for the Ministry in its London Offices. It’s a tale of nefarious doings, stalwart ladies, and the sound of clockwork.

Theme music for the Ministry composed and created by Alex White.

Don’t forget to pre-order the upcoming Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novel, coming April 26th from all good online and bricks and mortar stores.


I’ve been waiting to hear more of this universe for what feels like years now. Now we’ve got a new look into the world of Books & Braun!
