Stormwarden: Chapter 1
Stormed Fortress For the first time in audio, the Cycle of Fire Trilogy, a stout and epic tale mixing sci-fi and fantasy by acclaimed author Janny Wurts. This classic fantasy trilogy follows three young people struggling to free the Stormwarden, the last of the elemental power-wielding Vaere sorcerers, so that he can battle the humanity-threatening demonkind.

Far in the future, a human-crewed starship crashes on a distant planet, carrying alien POWs taken to help discover the secrets of a deadly foe, the group mind known as the Gierj. In time, the humans revert to a feudal society, the aliens are seen as "demons", and the starship's computer survives as a "magical" entity known as the Vaere.

In Book 1, Stormwarden, Anskiere, wizard of wind and water, binds the Mharg-demons with the aid of Ivan, master of fire and earth. But at the moment of his greatest peril, Ivan is betrayed and he swears a terrible oath against his betrayer - an oath so powerful that it begins a relentless "cycle of fire".

To Ride Hell's Chasm: Chapter 1
To Ride Hell's Chasm Author Janny Wurts reads from her fantasy novel, To Ride Hell's Chasm, a stand alone fantasy novel. The seed concept for To Ride Hell's Chasm is a thread played through a tapestry of intrigue and mystery: where does the right and true course of the warrior lie when the man bearing the sword and responsible knowledge must tread a collision course between the ethics of human justice and law – when not all things are as they appear, and thedisappearance of a young princess catapults a small kingdom into a crisis beyond precident? Each individual character has their own insight and vision. Limited or experienced, their passionate views and their choices will either contribute or detract, with high stakes action and more than survival set on the outcome. To Ride Hell's Chasm

What is Podcasting? Podcasting is a blanket term used to describe a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio and video programs over the internet via a publish and subscribe model. Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows," and gives broadcast radio or television programs a new distribution method. Podcasting's essence is about creating content (audio or video) for an audience that wants to listen when they want, where they want, and how they want.
