A world of legend and truth, from the folk tradition to the not-so-everyday life of Mr Tim

    Hear it! or Subscribe! This is a dark and wretched way to start this thing off afresh. I'm not 100% with the editing, but I've known these two stories have needed forcing together for years now. Enjoy! In this episode of The Room Behind the Bookcase, Tim Ralphs tells Orpheus' descent into the Underworld and an old "Mad Axe Murderer" tale he heard as a boy scout. Shout out to the Toaster Repair Crew. And to fine company.

    Hear it! or Subscribe! We are adapting, no we have adapted, Gogol's The Nose for podcast. These are incredible events, but I assure you they are true. It is the 11th of April, and our story reaches a conclusion that is entirely satisfactory. In this, the final episode, Zabet Stewart of The AntiCraft was the voice of reason.

    Gogol's The Nose, part iii

    Hear it! or Subscribe! We are adapting Gogol's The Nose for podcast. Things lulled for a while, but the pace races on as we approach our miraculous conclusion. As I have tried to explain; this is my part three, which is the second half of Gogol's part two. In short, Kovalev has lost his nose. He has found it again. I realise this sounds simple, but dear listener be aware of the tangled web we weave; barbers, police, a Doctor in a hat of questionable practicality, and even accusatons of witchcraft abound. Thank goodness we have Zabet Stewart of The AntiCraft and her inestimable talents. Tomorrow, before the sun sets, I swear I will have for you the final piece of the jigsaw, the answer to the unanswerable, the concluding piece of THE NOSE!

    Gogol's The Nose, Part ii

    Gogol's The Nose, Part ii

    Hear it! or Subscribe! A litle more of Gogol's absurd story of nasal knavery. In the first part, Ivan Yakovlevitch finds a nose in a bread roll and attempts to dispose of it, only to be accosted by a constable. Many questions linger unanswered; if Collegiate Assessor Kovalev had no nose, then how did he smell? Enjoy, but do not allow yourself to become too excitable. It may be the 4th of April before the next installment is up.

    Gogol's The Nose, Part i

    Gogol's The Nose, Part i

    Hear it! or Subscribe! Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol 1809 to 1852, which was too short a spell for such an interesting person to spend with us. I was reading a translation of Dead Souls and marvelling at the light, chatty tone with which Gogol wrote. It's a shame, I thought, that Gogol died before the birth of the internet. He'd have been a great podcaster. I will attempt to rectify this matter, and as re-animating Gogol is out of the question, (And how would we converse? I do not speak Russian.) for the next fortnight I'll run an adaptation of The Nose, an absurd and absurdist short story. Enjoy.
