Abigail Hilton is a traveling nurse anesthetist. She has spent time in veterinary school, lived in Taiwan, and skinned rattlesnakes. Not in that order.
In this Drabbleclassics episode, author and Drabblefan Weirdo Abbie Hilton breaks down the hit Drabblecast story Boojum, by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette. The ship had no name of her own, so her human crew called her the Lavinia Whateley. As far as anyone could tell, she didn’t mind. At least, her long grasping vanes […] The post Drabbleclassics 31 – Boojum appeared first on The Drabblecast.

Gerard lost his birthright in his small island kingdom when he married the court minstrel. He fled to the only place that offered protection from his father and his vengeful local deity - the service of the High Priestess. Unfortunately, his superior officer, Silveo, takes an instant disliking to Gerard. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He's a minority species, and rumors claim that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. In spite of their differences, the Priestess insists that Gerard and Silveo cooperate to destroy the charismatic pirate, Gwain, and his mysterious organization, the Guild of the Cowry Catchers. Gwain has been killing off the Temple Police for years, and he seems likely to make a swift end of Gerard...if Silveo doesn't do it first. This download includes the entire 5-book series.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Guild of the Cowry Catchers to be better than the print version? The Guild of the Cowry Catchers was the first audio book I ever listened to when it was in podcast form, and Abigail Hilton spoiled me rotten with the amazing production values this book had. Full cast audio, haunting (and sometimes hilarious) music, and full sound effects make this the finest production I've ever heard. The remaster on some of the lines in the early books corrects any flaws in the initial podcast recording. Understand that this started out as an 'indy' podcast, and Abigail Hilton put out a product for free that I feel was far superior to the vast majority of 'professional' recordings. The Audible.com production is fully remastered, and is well worth the cost of admission based solely on that. Let me reiterate that this is the best production I've ever heard, and you will ask yourself going forward why every audio book isn't fully voiced with music and sound effects. This book in 'paper' form (started as an exclusive e-book) made me purchase everything Hilton ever writes, this audio book production got me into audio books. What was one of the most memorable moments of The Guild of the Cowry Catchers? There are a whole bunch of scenes in this series which continue to strike me whenever I hear them, but the character of Silvio Lamire makes the statement in the 2nd book how he intends to "Walk in over sand, and walk out over bodies," concerning an island believed to harbor in individual the main characters are hunting. I won't spoil anything, but the realization of what that statement means is utterly chilling. Have you listened to any of Abigail Hilton and Full Cast s other performances before? How does this one compare? Go ahead and use any extra credits or cash to buy 'The Prophet of Panamindorah' and 'Secret Things' from Audible. 'Prophet' is set in the same universe as 'Cowry Catchers' just a different location, time period, and tone of the story. It's also got the music and sound effects, but is narrated solely by Abigail Hilton.
