The Stalwart Series – AMV#40 – 45 now available

By , 1 July, 2018, No Comment

A few years ago I thought to experiment with AMV – and set up a little private website and story series – and subscribers had access to both the stories on that website along with some other erratta – and received a CD copy of each story with original artwork by my friend Kevin Kobasic. Kevin created the “Radio Ghost” image to the right – and it’s really I think the ultimate image for both the series and for the AMV stories in general.

I suppose I forgot a little about the stories until Stalwart Joe D informed me that not all of the episodes could be located – and neither could I locate them. But thanks to Stalwart Bob S, we now have all of them. So as not to interrupt the current series – aside from this post – I have retro-published the episodes on this website – and they can also be found on itunes. Subscribe to the podcast on Atoms, Motion and the Void.

But links to the six stories can be found below. Find me on twitter @sherwinsleeves. And on Facebook.


AMV#40 – The Three Benches.


AMV#41 – On the Winning of a Wild Bed


AMV#42 – The Numbers Station


AMV#43 – The Exponent of Westbrook, Part 3


AMV#44 – The Book of Privy Council


AMV#45 – The Radio Ghost

AMV#52 – The Boy in the Dirty Sheet

By , 24 June, 2018, No Comment

In which Sherwin hatches a foul plan to catch the girl in the sack cloth – and comes to learn of a boy in a dirty sheet.

Let me also apologize for the delay. Sean has been – and will be for the next few months – in Chicago doing strange work about which I know very little. But this has left him little time for me and this – and though I’ve chided him, though I’ve warned him, though I have sent him angry notes and pleading notes and in one instance a packet of chocolates, he has remained obscurely busy. But he says he will do his best – and so we shall see. I should note that obviously he has been finally helpful enough to get this episode finished – and for that I am thankful.

I am back on twitter. You may find me @sherwinsleeves.

AMV#51 – The Girl in the Sack Cloth

By , 23 April, 2018, No Comment

In which it is revealed that the Great Achievement is so-called because it was achieved alongside a witness. The Achievement itself is finally described – and a new mysterious character arrives, both in dreams and reality.

Thus continues this series of “Night Stories” – to be listened to at night before bed – or in the dark – or in the dark of the castle of your very self.

AMV#50 – The Great Achievement

By , 16 April, 2018, 5 Comments

What is the Great Achievement? Long in the making, I first noticed it during a terrible storm when I discovered I could no longer find the light switch in my cabin.

It was at that moment that a fuller situation revealed itself – a situation that I soon recognized as an achievement. A Great Achievement.

Thus begins a series of “Night Stories” – to be listened to at night before bed – or in the dark – or in the dark of the castle of your very self.

“In which we learn a bit more about Ronald Vinegar and the origins of the Bellwether Dispatch.”

“The Bellwether Dispatch” weather report, treasure hunt, and story can best be understood by listening to “The Bellwether Dispatch” either below or, better yet, through subscription to the AMV podcast on itunes.

The 2nd Postcard will be dispatched by mail tomorrow with clues as to the whereabouts of the 2nd treasure of Amory Snow.

Bellwether Second Online Postcard FInalFor those far off Dispatchers, the Online Postcard can be seen at right. Please examine it closely and minutely as though with a magnifying glass. Discover the secret word, send it to me at bellwetherdispatch at gmail dot com to win the 2nd Collector Card.

At the moment only 4 Dispatchers have the first Collector Card – and so I would suggest that there is no wrong time to start listening, looking, playing. If you are just coming upon the Bellwether Dispatch now and would like to more actively participate, please send an email to bellwetherdispatch at gmail dot com and express your desire to participate – along with your mailing address.

Reminder: to win the Grand Prize, one must either locate the 4 actual treasures hidden in NH and take a Collector Card from each – or get a Card by finding the secret words buried in the 4 online postcard images – or some combination of the two. Collect all 4 Collector Cards, get your Victorious Proof to me before anyone else, and win the subjectively styled Grand Prize.

Happy listening, looking, hunting, collecting.

“In which Sherwin details the aftermath following the release of the first postcard.”
BellwetherOnlinePostcardNoClue

“The Bellwether Dispatch” can best be understood by listening to “The Bellwether Dispatch” either below or, better yet, through subscription to the AMV podcast on itunes. In fact, certain clues may be buried within the audio stories themselves.

A Number of Things to Note:

1. There are currently 36 Dispatchers. The First Postcard has been dispatched and should be arriving early in the week.
2. Only one person has solved the Online Postcard mystery and emailed the secret word. A Collector Card has been sent off to this person and – to be clear how this works – if that person manages to collect all 4 cards (despite doing so virtually), they will be the Grand Prize winner.
3. Two people – that I know of – have discovered the location of the actual treasure – but they have not yet secured it.
4. The first treasure site will feature an endless supply of rare coins and Collector Cards. The second treasure site will be more limited, 20 coins and 20 Cards. The third will have less of each and for Grand Prize purposes, the final treasure site will feature only one Collector Card.
5. I believe this Treasure Hunt will take some time before all the cards are found and collected. So feel free to begin whenever you like.
6. Hint for the Online Postcard: Examine the properties.
7. Real treasure hint: see the photo below. The treasure is somewhere in there. FullSizeRender (2)
