without a keyboard. You can now listen to Sean reading a growing selection of his short stories. Five stories are currently available:
1. Summoning the King
It is 1969, and Oberon is about to appear at a Melbourne folk music club. (Original 2014, Sean McMullen - reading, concertina, guitar; Keryn Lientschnig - cello)
Go jogging at the right speed, late at night, and it's a very strange new world. (Trust Me Too, 2012: Sean McMullen - reading)
An electric computer was built in London in 1875. Who invented it? Nobody Human. (Interzone, August 2013: Sean McMullen - reading & vocals; Ann Poore - harp; Excerpt from Mary's Rest by permission from Ann Poor)
There's a Regency serial killer researching his victims in the municipal library. Would you call Dexter, or just have a quiet word to the librarian? (Dreaming Again, 2008): Sean McMullen - reading, Ann Poore - harp)
In 1188 England was blighted by a sexually transmitted disease that could light your way on a dark night. (Interzone, Nov 1994; Mammoth Book of Extreme Fantasy, 2010: Sean McMullen - reading; Ann Poore - medieval harp).
Oberon has been enslaved and forced to perform in the folk clubs of 1973 Melbourne. Titania is weaving a spell to free him, but she will need help from some local musicians. Thanks to my friends Peter Parkhill and Graham Smith for permission to use the recordings of their 1973 and 1978 performances, and to Ann Poore for recording the quite magical harp pieces for me in 2014. (Original, 2014: Sean McMullen, reading, vocals & guitar; Peter Parkhill, vocals & guitar; Graham Smith, vocals, accordion & concertina; Ann Poore, harp)
All six books in Sean's new series The Warlock's Child series are available from Amazon and Ford Street Publishing.
