Halloween Party Book Set by James Livingood
Halloween Party Book Set - James Livingood,Michael Gilboe,J. Scott Bennett,Bryan Patrick Jones,Paperbackward

This audiobook contains three short stories, Frankenstein: IT Support,Swamp Monster Vodoo, and Vampire Caving.

Frankenstein: IT Support – Adam, Frankenstein’s monster, has survived to the modern times and works in IT at McTech. Through out the day, Adam answers several IT calls and deals with socially awkward coworkers.The pacing of this story was pretty slow, mimicking how boring Adam’s job is. The jokes came in two flavors – those about Adam and his love of ingesting electricity, and those about IT work and the dumb questions consumers call in with. There were also a few puns thrown in. I found the humor very predictable and therefore, it fell flat for me. Perhaps this story would go over well with small kids.

Swamp Monster Vodoo – The Swamp Monster was taken in by a vodoo master, who mentored him in the magic and in the cheat. They were partners of a sort, providing info from the other side to family members seeking lost treasure in the swamp. However, very soon into the story, the two must part ways. Swamp Monster, being large, green, and a little smelly, sets up a little cabin in the swamp. Pretty soon he is providing favors to the dead in exchange for buried treasure. Yet he doesn’t take into account that a certain ghost may be after something more. This was a pretty clever tale. I liked that it started off in on e place, and that gave me certain expectations, but ended in a completely different place. I quite enjoyed the journey between the two.

Vampire Caving – Bernie and Richard are turned in to vampires the 1920s by some nameless, yet pretty, woman who took them home one night after drinks. Then the story skips ahead to modern times. Bernie is a Hot Head, exploring the world and trying not to get burned by the sun. Meanwhile, Richard became a Doomsdayer, one of those vampires that prefers to set up a fancy nest and never leave. The Hot Heads provide new tech and knowledge to the Doomsdayers and the Doomsdayers treat the Hot Heads like royalty. Bernie continues to seek out the origins of vampires. He’s put a lot into it – studying history and languages. Richard has dug up a possible lead and hands that off to Bernie. The clue is a cave and Bernie suits up and starts exploring. What Bernie finds in the cave is totally unexpected – but him or me! But I really liked what the story did with this mystery cave. In fact, I am going to say there is some pretty beautiful myth building that goes on in this tale. I was impressed.

I received a copy of this audiobook at no cost from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Narration: Michael Gilboe did a good job being Adam, Frankenstein’s monster, and ponderously moving through the day. He came off as lovable lummox and I felt that was and exact match for the text. J. Scott Bennett had a great voice for the Swamp Monster, bringing a bayou twang to it. I especially liked his voice for Granma Rose. Brian Patrick Jones did a really good job with the story Vampire Cave.  I liked his voices for what Bernie found in the cave. The intro and the little bit at the end after the completion of Vampire Cavingwere both in lower volume for some reason. That’s my only little quibble with the audio production. Each story came with it’s own little bits of music and I quite liked this little touch.

Hunting Party (The Serrano Legacy Book 1)
Hunting Party (The Serrano Legacy Book 1) - Elizabeth Moon I *adore* the first half of this book, where Herris and Lady Cecelia are getting the measure of each other. The second half is also pretty excellent, although I'm more than a little over the Most Dangerous Game scenarios. Moon does such a good job with the character development, even the most odious young dumb babies seem interesting, and their development into much less odious young people stays engaging.
