#88 – Pearl Harbor Remembrances & Holidays GiftAway

Play

Today is the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Empire on December 7, 1941.  I start out today’s podcast by remembering the overall events as well as hearing stories from some of the few survivors left.  Plus, there is a surprise at the end of the story that I just learned about today.

 

We also spend some time looking at two mysteries which are fun reads.  The first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study is Scarlet, is a great mystery which actually helped to change the way the police investigations are conducted today.  And Becky Wooley’s book, Non Prophet Murders, takes us into the world of churches and how they might – or might not – work.  It’s a book which makes you laugh and think, too.

Or course, both of these books are eligible for the Holiday GiftAwayBe one of the first 10 to correctly answer a question about the Christmas Story from the scriptures, and I’ll send you a FREE AUDIOBOOK from the Narration by George Library of book.  Listen for this week’s question.

#85 – Sherlock Revisited, #2

Play

A Study in Scarlett CD cover

After detouring to honor our veterans last week, I pick up this week’s podcast to continue our look at the first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet.  This novel is divided into two parts.  In the first part, we learn who committed the crime.  In the second part, we find out why.  So, I play excerpts from my production of the second part of the novel from the amazing description of the western desert to the perpetrator’s tracking down his victims.  I think you’ll enjoy this look at an amazing writing.

Sgt. John Yell (back, right)

This Friday is Veteran’s Day.  So, I wanted to honor my fellow Vets with music and reading.  This podcast features a little about the job I used to do for the military, the Armed Forces Medley (all the themes of each of the services), some poetry from Regina Puckett, the story of Sgt. John Yell, the uncle of one of my authors, and the prologue from a book, Undeserved Favor, that will be out in the spring featuring the fictional Sgt. Frank Ballard.  I close with some scripture and commentary that are particularly appropriate for this post-election season.

Game CoverUh-oh!  This podcast was taken over by a pirate.  Captain Cleytus Pitcher IV captured the microphone and tied me up so that I couldn’t speak to you this week.  He still shared the new stuff that’s coming Payback coverAmazon coverto Narration by George.  So, that’s good.  There are two short horror tales by Regina Puckett – Do You Want to Play a Game? (just released today) and Payback.  And there is the new Science Fiction epic, Second Earth M-104 by Michael Miller.  (The Captain just doesn’t get Sci-Fi!)  In the end, I was able to get the police involved and now he’s spending the night in jail. But, he’s still on the look-out for his treasure!
