I have a play as well. But then- does it count if the ghost is a hoax? (Not really a spoiler, btw; the audience knows before the first act is up, and even the prologue implies it.)

Thanks for your suggestions Todd, but Mr. Grimm was featured in September... Somebody's not paying attention. :roll:

Vampires do count, thank you. :D The Drummer I'm not sure about, it's more fun than horror, right? And I'd prefer this month to be dark. Very dark. Fitting the outside... :twisted:
Cheers,
Ava.

There is a small downside to retiring (as I did last year): no more 2 hour daily commutes to fill with listening to our stories. So I often don't look at the new releases or monthly picks because I don't know when I'd listen to them.

Yeah, I know, not a serious problem.

Thanks, Todd
I will be out of touch until 6 Dec. Keep recording!

Oh, yes, I see. The Drummer is pretty light, yes. Probably not what you're looking for. :)

All languages welcome!

It's a short one - wouldn't you like to read it in the original until the end of the month? :mrgreen:
Done. :mrgreen:

Wow, I've never been quite that late for the Staff Picks... :shock: Sorry 'bout that... :oops:

The staff has finally picked for November, thank you for your many suggestions! Please have a look at this page for the current list. You can also check out our wiki page for a plain vanilla list that contains all the staff picks for this year plus the readers!

The theme for next month is:

Spirituality


Christmas is coming around and I'd like to have something upliftingand heart-warming for the season. And kids stuff. And spiritual stuff. And Christmas stories...
All religions/spiritual bents welcome!

Especially welcome are suggestions of plays and poetry.

All languages welcome!

Thanks for your help! :D
Cheers,
Ava.
