From the Vaults – Dreamer’s Thread

We’ll Start the relaunch with a little something retro – And for that let’s go with one of my Favorite podcasts from last year – Starla Huchton’s The Dreamer’s Thread.

If you missed it the First time Here’s what I had to say –

The Dreamer’s Thread – is a fun fantastic journey into the world of dreams, and fantasy.  It’s a fun ride, to me it’s kinda like Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur’s court had a bastard love child with The Never Ending Story and  set it in the land of Dreams.   (And let me mention that I find that to be a GOOD thing I like the Never Ending Story… Don’t diss Bastion…nah… AH…NAH-AH-AH – it was the sequels and the fucked up cartoon that screwed it up the original was pretty decent)  It’s a dreamy (pun intended) tale of Aura a dreamer who get’s pulled into the land of dreams to save the world from the nightmare realm.  I think the voices were dead on, they seemed to fell right on the characters.  It was fun ride, a well put together podcast, and a fun story one that should it ever make it into print I will read to my daughter on a regular basis.

Congratulations on the podcast / story being a wonderful success (least I think it turned out that way) and on the birth of your new minion.  I can’t see what else you’ve got to put out… fiction wise I mean… I don’t need to see the Minions – well unless you REALLY REALLY fell like sharing…

You can follow Starla on Twitter @RiznPhnx or you can check the Novel on Itunes or at it’s home on the web over at http://www.thedreamersthreadnovel.com/

 

It is a great podcast and story, and still has a happy place on my Hard drive just in case I have the urge to give it another listen.. and I have.  If you haven’t sat down and given it a listen do so, give it a couple episodes before you make up your mind (I like to give everything at least four eps) because there is a fairly decent stylistic change in the first couple episodes.

If you want to support the author for her hard work and hell of a job you can always shell out the 5 bucks for PDF or 15 for print from Amazon.

Some stories when you come back a second time lose some of the wonder, this one sucked me back in just like it did the first time.

 

Going a little retro pulling some things off the shelf and dusting them off while I’m working on the next stage of things here at Random Pimpage.
