ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A Journey With Strange Bedfellows" is a Victorian Gothic horror (steampunk "lite") audio drama that includes six (6) classic short stories that are woven into a continuous adventure (suitable for ages 12 & up) which presents relevant messages along with an overall theme of self-sacrifice as its protagonist pursues love that is ultimately revealed as unique, alternative and transformational.

STORY SYNOPSIS: Socially shy Hunter Brown loved sweet-tempered Faith Geibel from afar for several years. Now, just when Faith has noticed him (at her cousin’s annual birthday ball), a clockwork dancer murders the guest of honor, its creator dies, and Faith mysteriously disappears without a word. The allure of Faith’s mesmerizing gaze and the incendiary ecstasy borne of their first kiss convince Hunter that his destiny is irreversibly linked to Faith’s; he must find her. Hunter is drawn into a perilous journey that takes him from etiquette-proper Victorian England, into the murderous alleyways of Paris, through Satan’s unhallowed Hungarian forest and eastward to Faith’s Transylvanian origin. The insidious murder of Hunter’s best friend, an unavoidable encounter with a demonic cleric, and tracking a blood trail through a centuries-old graveyard (at night while surrounded by nocturnal predators) prelude Hunter’s discovery of Faith’s long-guarded secret. To remain in her existence, and ensure Faith’s survival, Hunter must make the ultimate sacrifice.

I am a man forever in love, and a creature forever loved, until the end of my days.
– Hunter Brown from “A Journey With Strange Bedfellows”

“A Journey With Strange Bedfellows” is also available as a graphic novel (for ages 12 and up) whose six immortal short stories present timeless, relevant messages as originally penned by “strange” literary masters Nathaniel Hawthorne, Bram Stoker, Jack London, Jerome K. Jerome, Wilkie Collins, and Hector H. “Saki” Munro. These resurrected stories are melded into a single, harrowing adventure that follows Hunter Brown on a quest to find true love in Faith Geibel who guards a centuries' old secret. In a surprise ending, Hunter must sacrifice all to ensure Faith's continued existence. The 128-page, full color, illustrated graphic novel was adapted from the 2 hour long audio drama which received a Mark Time Ogle Award for excellence in audio storytelling and was featured as an “Official Listening Selection” at the HEAR Now: The Audio Fiction and Audio Arts Festival. Together, the graphic novel and audio drama (along with a S.T.E.A.M core curriculum educational guide) work as a “listen, look, learn” literacy education package that would align with public, private, and home-school programs, both secular and non-secular.
