The People Have Spoken

Greetings one and all and welcome back to another edition of Laura's Links. By the time you read this column, the Jewish people will be very deep in the thick of celebrating the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot means "weeks" and it refers to the weeks that we count from Passover to the time that G-d gave the Torah to the Jewish people. There are a great many components to the holiday including reading the Book of Ruth, learning all night long, and eating dairy products. Therefore, as is usual in my pre-holiday mode, my introductory remarks will be a little slimmer than usual because WELL DOMESTIC SERVITUDE YOU KNOW. Mr. C and I usually plan things out pretty well but things just have not completely come together in our planning for this holiday ...

A Clubman's Notes

A Shadow's Shadow

Welcome back to our latest Tale for Our Time. Listeners seemed to enjoy Part One of our story. Marc, a First Day Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes: No one does it better! Thank you, Mark! On the other hand, Nicola Timmerman in Eastern Ontario is a bit worried about where all this is headed: Sorry to hear you didn't do the Q & A for health reasons but you sounded great in this recitation. The Shadow seems kind of creepy. Let's hope the tale doesn't end too badly. Well, we're about to find out, Nicola. Herewith, the concluding episode of The Shadow by Hans Christian Andersen: The days passed. The years went by. And the shadow called again. "How goes it?" he asked. "Alack," said the scholar, "I still write about the true, the ...

A Shadow of His Former Self

In April, after a protracted absence due to my various health issues, Tales for Our Time returned with a classic and highly apposite short story by Edgar Allan Poe: The Masque of the Red Death. If you've yet to catch it, you'll find it here. That was just my way of dipping a toe into the water, and seeing whether my decrepit self was up to it. So subsequently I dipped the other nine toes in, with a full-length serialisation of The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie. I'm delighted to say that that was to prove one of our most popular audio adventures of the last seven years. From First Fortnight Founding Member Philip Paustian: Dear Mr. Steyn: As the month runs out my 8th year as a club member has already begun. The Secret Adversary was ...
