Main Fiction: Keller the Dog-Killer by Lawrence Block
Narrator: Ray SizemoreJuly 16, 2012 at 3:40 pm #23247
Brilliant! When does District of Wonders go live, actually?July 17, 2012 at 2:57 am #23249
Block writes with that subtle flow of Agatha Christie, like that ride at Disney that’s smooth and lovely… and then WOW, you go screaming around a turn at break-neck speed! And another, and another! You know who did it, yet you’re whipping your head around to see what will happen next! Tremendous character development for a piece of this length! Awesome debut, flawless narration! Beautiful job, Inspector Jack!

Josh is on holiday now but hoping as soon as for DoWJuly 17, 2012 at 10:52 am #23251
Excellent story to start off the podcast – Block puts in twists aplenty with just the right touches of humor. The reading was amazing and captivating!
…besides, I love the characters of Keller and Dot.July 17, 2012 at 3:04 pm #23255
Really enjoyed the story. Nothing terribly surprising about the story but a fun romp! Gotta love the Shakespearean/Soap Opera kind of twists and turns.July 17, 2012 at 11:13 pm #23263
Good story and well read. One thing I’d have liked to hear would have been a bit more about Block and some pointers on the rest of his work. If I wanted to read more about those characters then were should I look and so on.July 19, 2012 at 8:13 pm #23285
Loved it! Great story to start things off with. Keller reminds me a bit of Spenser (detective in Robert B. Parker novels), a tough guy but with his own consistent moral code. Great reading. Looking forward to more.July 23, 2012 at 4:04 am #23293
This is a little off-topic, but I wasn’t sure where to actually ask it. Is there an actual show schedule posted anywhere, to tell people what shows come out what days? I know TtT comes out Fridays, but I’m not sure about the others. If there’s going to be a new show coming out from each of the 4 in the District of Wonders, maybe the DoW website could have some kind of posting spelling that out?July 23, 2012 at 8:56 am #23296
Great reading of a fun story with the right amount of dark humour.

That’s a good idea Rob about when shows come out. We are working on a number of things – one is a mega feed to subscribe to them all. But, I’ll mention your idea to Josh. As it stands Monday – Crime City Central, Tuesday Protecting Project Pulp, Wednesdays StarShipSofa and Fridays for Tales To Terrify.July 25, 2012 at 12:39 pm #23320
So what’s lined up for Thursday? I keep trying to think of a RRR title for a Mills & boon/Chicklit/Romance podcast. Not one I’d have time to listen to, but I expect someone would.August 5, 2012 at 10:30 am #23354
Cracking start to the Podcast. Great story and a great reading.
This is the first Keller story I’ve heard and it’s great to jump in to a character that has a lot of back story one can only guess at. I had to stop myself part way and remember he’s a cold blooded killer who shoots men, women and dogs.
