Preview Blues for Johnny Raven
Private Detective Johnny Raven has a unique perspective. Living on The Loop will do that to you. And what’s The Loop? It’s a world. A world of sound and narration. A world where the ultimate currency is Ambiance and the ultimate fear is being left in the Background.
Singer Gloria Kinsolving needs help. She thinks someone is trying to kill her. Can Johnny Raven protect her from notorious Ambiance dealer Lorenzo Gold and his fearsome bodyguard, Prowse? Will Benny the Gospel provide the critical clue? And what makes Raven so much better at his job than other detectives?
Featuring Daniel W. Kiernan as Johnny Raven, Fiona K. Leonard as Gloria Kinsolving, Brad Strickland as Benny the Gospel, William L. Brown as Lorenzo Gold, and David Benedict as Prowse.
The CD also includes A Glitch in Time by Brad Strickland.
Time machines are uncomplicated things. In hundreds of science fiction stories they have slipped defiantly into the past or slid silently into the future. You know where you are with a time machine. They go forward. They go back. Unless you get caught in a loop.
Then you have a problem. Then you’re repeating the same day over and over again. But you’re a resourceful kind of guy, you figure out a way to break the loop. It’s going to take a little time, but you figure time is the one thing you can afford to lose. Then you discover time machines don’t always go forward and back.
Sometimes they go sideways.
Capital punishment is a terrible thing, they say. It reduces the State to the same level as the Criminal, they say. It must be replaced with something humane, they say. But who is to say what is humane and what isn’t and if the Convicted had a choice, which would they choose?
A man is running, running through the woods, avoiding cities, avoiding his fellow man, running, running. He’s running from the authorities, from his crimes, from an entire world. And most of all he is running from himself and the logically frightening and humane punishment that waits for him if he stops.

It is the habit of military men to write memoirs, a habit that reached it’s peak during Victoria’s reign, that High Noon of Empire. Over one third of the world owed it’s allegiance to the Widow of Windsor and her sons dutifully returned to her after their tours of duty, armed with pen and ink to record their experiences. The bright light of England was everywhere — but light casts shadows and in shadows strange things breed. Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, late of Her Majesty’s Armies in India, chose to tell of those shadows and one man who delved into them.
Doctor Geoffry Stanhope, Investigator of Occult Phenomena. Reminiscences from the Memoirs of Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, British India Army, Retired.
In this episode: The Loch Ness Monster is only a story, isn’t it? Dr. Stanhope and Colonel Fizwilliams investigate!
