AMV#51 – The Great Achievement – Part 2

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.

This is Part Two of “The Fingerprints of the Fallen Down – A Metaphysical Murder Mystery.” You may listen to Part One via the post just below or you can just read the following: In the first episode, Sherwin traveled to Paradox Mountain in search of the otherworldly maker of a peculiar “whippoorwill” clock.

AMV#33 – The Accidental Apparition

By , 1 November, 2012, No Comment

This Halloween Special originally aired on NHPR.

Every year the town of Lemon, New Hampshire celebrates Halloween with its annual “Demon of Lemon Festival” down in the Maccaw Meadows. Tents are set up in the fairground fields and there are hayrides, games, food vendors, spooky music, etc.

In preparation for the Festival, Sherwin has set out for a late night stroll to test his so-called parade outfit, an ancient black wool suit and pair of shoes that he wears to all such community gatherings.

But when one of his shoes falls to pieces, Sherwin begins to wonder whether he’s suffering from one of his hypnopompic episodes. An inveterate sleepwalker, he often finds himself in the confusing and illusory world of semi-consciousness.

And when the citizens of Lemon begin to report sightings of a ghost, Sherwin questions whether they may be seeing a late night version of his wandering, sleepwalking self.

New AMV episodes on the way and a change

By , 6 March, 2012, 4 Comments

After writing the last two AMV episodes (AMV46 and AMV47) I found myself in the right place to continue on with more stories. A number of new AMV episodes are thus in the works.
But it also occurred to me, after 6 years of generally giving away episodes of AMV for free, that I would like to start selling them for a small price – I’m thinking $2 per episode. You can also name your own price if that suits your financial circumstance – even a single penny is fine. I want to get a sense of how many people are willing to pay a small amount for the stories and additionally I am curious what that value is. Maybe 2 dollars is too much, maybe it’s too little.
Supporting me in this way will permit me to continue to focus as much of my attention as possible on recording the curious events from my life here in Lemon. I absolutely understand that some listeners can’t afford to pay – some don’t like to – and that’s fine. I have no judgement or further thought at all about that. So from now on you may see the little Donate button, like the one that follows:

The Lost AMV episodes

By , 18 February, 2012, 1 Comment

In 2009, Sherwin and I were developing a show for Public Radio. The 3 part “Orwell Storyteller” story was never submitted as a potential expression of the sort of show Sherwin (and Sean) might do, but Sherwin did write out the stories and recorded the first 2. When we were told that a pure story format was not something the local public radio station was interested in, we moved on.

Part one is a typical AMV story, but as we began to hear inklings that a “pure story” style show wasn’t going to fly, we decided to add a new element. So AMV37 features Sean doing an introduction as well as an interview at the end with the cowboy musician Skip Gorman who provided the music for the episode.

Part 3 has been written, but not yet produced. Sherwin is at the moment fumbling through his papers trying to locate his drafts. I feel confident that he will find it soon.

AMV39 is a standalone story that was written but not produced.

But here, at long last, are two of the four “lost” AMV episodes…(and my great thanks to Bob Sgandurra for sending me the only remaining copy of AMV37!) Photo of Sherwin at the Santa Ana Train Station by Stephanie Gould.

AMV#36 – The Orwell Storyteller, Part 1:
“In which Sherwin boards a train bound for a plain type of elsewhere and finds himself in a special sort of nowhere.”

“In which Sherwin finds himself stranded in the badlands and then in an even tighter spot.”

The Christmas Skater

By , 10 December, 2011, No Comment

On the next episode of The Radio Ghost, I’ll be playing The Christmas Skater and talking a bit about it with the listeners. The story is played yearly on XM and Sirius satellite radio (thank you Ron & Fez!). It’s also heard on Public Radio stations across the country and has aired in the UK and Australia. My friend Olivia Wilder will also be including it the second part of her Christmas show.

The story has also been picked up by Spoken Ink and will be for sale soon exclusively through their site. Because of that, I will be taking down the free version (as part of the arrangement with Spoken Ink, I can’t give it away anymore).

But the Spoken Ink deal isn’t done, so for this Christmas at least, it’s still free! If you have the desire, you can also purchase the full story of The Christmas Skater on iTunes: The Christmas Skater - Single - Sherwin Sleeves

But the free version is still here and will be until the Spoken Ink ink dries:
