It’s time to kick-off another week of storytelling in Voice by the staff and volunteers at the Seanchai Library. As always, all times SLT, and events are held at the Library’s home at Holly Kai Park, unless otherwise indicated.
Sunday, October 29th
12:00 Noon: Haunted Holly Kai
It’s that time of year when ghosts and ghouls arise, when demons and vampires and more walk abroad; it’s a time for spooky stories and terrifying tales to be told by moonlight or in darkened rooms. And if you’re someone who enjoys spine-tingling yarns, we have just the thing for you at Holly Kai Park – The Great Boo!
Join us on Sunday, October 29th from 12:00 noon SLT, as Seanchai Library presents an afternoon of Halloween stories live in voice, followed by devilish music and dancing.
Then at 2:00pm SLT DJ Joy Canadeo rocks the terrestrial plain, and the “beyond” with great tunes among the spirits. Grab a ghostly friend and join in the dance!
The event is in support of Feed A Smile, Holly Kai Park’s adopted charity, and will take place at a suitably spooky setting courtesy of Pandemonium Haunted Holly Kai – can also be reached via any of the teleport mirrors located at the landing points around the park.
18:00: Magicland Storytime
Caledonia with Selections from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book live at the Golden Horseshoe in Magicland Park.
Monday, October 30th 19:00: Reckoning Infinity
Gyro Muggins reads John E. Stith’s alien first contact story, once described as “Rendezvous with Rama meets James and the Giant Peach“!
Lieutenant Commander Alis Mary Nussem, her body partially bionic, isn’t to happy about finding herself aboard the same space vessel as the man she deems responsible for the accident which robbed her of a part of her natural body. However, she must put aside her differences with scientist Karl Stanton when a massive object enters the solar system, apparently on course to be swallowed by the Sun – but not before it will collide with a space station in Earth orbit.
Ordered to investigate the object, which is as large as a moon and quickly given the name “Cantaloupe,” Nussem, Stanton and the crew of their ship rendezvous with it, only to find they are not the first: the wreck of another vessel lies on the surface, a hole drilled into the object close by. The only means of entry to the Cantaloupe, Nussem and Stanton lead a team down through it – to make a stunning discovery.
Like Nussem, Cantaloupe is an bio-mechanical entity. It is alive, but it’s interior also have pipes, elevators chambers and more within. But it is also a place of danger – as Nussem and her also companions quickly discover – some to their cost. It’s also a place of unexpected surprises, as the crew’s biggest discovery proves…
