Ladies and gentlemen, this reading of THE BRIGHT PATH is now complete. Thank you, thank you, thank you — you lovely people, who have come along for this ride. This has been a journey I will never forget, and one that has given even me some surprises. For one thing, I plan to incorporate much more music into the second and third parts of this series–and the illustrations will continue, if I can afford to continue production. I hope you’ll become a patron of The Bright Path to support further artwork and music in the podcast as well.

I will also never forget the last year of reading with you because it’s written down in a book. If you like giant door-stoppers, then the full edition of The Bright Path is just right for you. But if you’d like a little more limber edition, stay tuned (and join the mailing list <—– ) for a three-part edition of The Bright Path, comfortably sized for reading in a hammock. Here’s a quick preview of the first book, QUANTA OF NONSENSE:

And finally, beautiful people, here is the complete choral number that appears in part 2.

Episode 51: The Lost Arc

Jonathan attempts the most outrageous chandelier swing in recorded history–but something is missing from his landing. Cyrus writes a letter that will cause him some trouble later; Daisy goes straight for true love; and Rolly saves the day with the awesome power of mathematics. Vicod Rayth is entirely naked.

Episode 32: Steel Comes Into Fashion

So you think these podcast episodes are big? You should see them on paper!

It’s a party on the streets of Green Bridge! Bishop Wildrick makes his move to poison the city government and seize control with a mob of the faithful. An assassin stalks Mrs. Bridge’s household, Merrily gets sweaty, Beatrice gives Veridia some questionable fashion advice, and Cyrus has the time of his life on a rooftop.
