Welcome and Merry Christmas Eve! As Advent is almost over for this year, I thought I'd better quickly mention the last two releases that I have an involvement with - and here they are. A couple of days ago, Hungerfiend became available to download:
Advent Calendar 2018: Day Twenty-One
a desolate corner of Ghur, a dread Mourngul haunts a graveyard – but
there is more to the spirit than meets the eye, and the mystery could
spell doom for Prince Maesa.
Drawn to a haunted graveyard in the Realm of Beasts by rumours of a
fearsome creature, the aelven Prince Maesa seeks to cleanse the area of
its taint. Along with his allies Stonbrak the duardin and Shattercap,
the malevolent spite who serves him, Maesa sets out to defeat the beast –
a terrifying and monstrous spirit known as a Mourngul.
But there is
more to this horror than meets the eye, and unless they can solve the
mystery surrounding it, the Mourngul may spell the heroes' fate.
Performed by John Banks, Matthew Hunt, Melvyn Rawlinson, Richard Reed & David Seddon
Written by Guy Haley & Produced by Matt Renshaw
I'm delighted to be playing Prince Maesa once again, along with Melvyn Rawlinson as Shattercap. We originally played the characters last year in The Autumn Prince and more recently, both characters appeared in The Sands of Grief; a short story I narrated for the Sacrosanct audio book anthology.
And finally, my last release for Advent and indeed, for this year, another 'commuter length' audio drama:
Advent Calendar 2018: Day Twenty-Three
Three underhive fugitives shelter around a fire in the midst of a storm.
They must be safe here, for the only one who could track them is Gor
Half-horn. And he's a myth, isn't he?
Kaya, Gull and Vaughn are on the run. After a job gone wrong, the trio
of hive-scum have a price on their head and aren't welcome in any
reputable settlement. As they shelter from a hive-storm in an abandoned
hab-unit in the deep sump, they're sure they're safe from any who might
be seeking them.
They are wrong. Gor Half-horn is coming for them, and
none escape the abhuman bounty hunter once he has their scent…
Performed by John Banks, Toby Longworth, Gesella Ohaka & Andrew Wincott
Written by Josh Reynolds & Produced by Matt Renshaw

And that's pretty much a wrap for now. As always, many thanks for stopping by the web site, both today and throughout 2018 - it's much appreciated. January is already looking busy for me, though unlike this time last year, I do have a little time off during the holidays, which I'm thoroughly enjoying.
May I wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a peaceful & Happy New Year!
...all for now, more just as soon as it happens!
