Door and Other Twisted Tales

Scroll down to listen to the story, "Charity" - read by Catherine McCarthy
Botany Bay, 1790 – One by one, a colony of white-skinned pioneers disappear from their camp. Did the legendary rainbow serpent of the Dreamtime, Goorialla, wreak revenge on the ghosts for disturbing its sacred watering hole?

North-east coast of Japan 2011, vicinity of Fukushima Nuclear Plant – Seismic waves on the Pacific Ocean floor cause a catastrophic tsunami. The mythical giant catfish, Namazu, is believed to seek retribution for human greed by creating earthquakes. Could it be to blame?

Our Interview with Bruce MedcalfWhat inspired the book?

One night when my oldest daughter Briattany was about 4 years old I woke up in the darkness of night and saw her staring at me like a kid from the Children of the Corn movie. Scared the hell out of me. Off to bed I took her. Every night was the same. Bad sleeps for all involved. Finally one evening she broke down and shared that she had problems sleeping as she was having terrible nightmares. That's when I thought of The Dream Avenger. I explained that The Dream Avenger would protect her in her dreams and she would have a restful worry-free sleep. She asked me if The Dream Avenger would help her have "Sweet Dreams", I stated yes. From that moment forward, zero sleeping issues.
