045 – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading – The Swampers


Of sleep, psychics and scoundrels

Psychic or charlatan, this story will help you sleep
The paraphernalia of the fortune teller? Are some for real? Maybe, but many are charlatans.

Sleep comes when the mind is unstressed, so let’s wash away the tension with a bedtime story, told in a way that won’t keep you too focused.

Believe what you will about psychics and faith healers, many are not what they seem. But will you find sleep comes for you during the story of what happens to Professor Mortikali as he does some palm and tarot readings. Before getting a visit from a mysterious stranger who turns out to be all too familiar

From ‘The Swampers’ by Hume Nisbet

As I work in the hospitality industry the next few weeks are going to be very busy for me. I won’t be able to do much researching and writing, but I won’t leave you restless. I will have a selection of cold readings for your insomnia cures every week, right on schedule.

Holiday season episodes

Sleeping bay in a christmas hat.
Even holidays can cause sleepless nights.

Hi friends,

Jut a quick note to everyone regarding my holiday season episodes and some other changes.

First up, as I mentioned on a couple of episodes I work in the hospitality industry in a tourist town in South Africa. So this time of the year is very busy for me. I work long hours and I’m usually exhausted afterwards.

Not to fret though, I should be able to maintain my release schedule. However to make sure I’ve got something fresh for you to fall asleep to every week I need to take a bit of a shortcut.

For this reason I’m going to dial back on the original stories. Those take a lot of prep work. I will instead to some reading of various books, so for a few weeks the tone and content of the show will be a bit different.

Stories of Mutewallow and the residents of Southcliffe will be back in the new year, but for now I will be sharing the words and stories of others.

I’m curious how you listeners like the format though, so let me know on social media or pop me a mail at contact@sleepytimetales.net

Stay rested

Dave

042 – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading – Under Two Flags

 

A tales of class and the military, sometimes fascinating, sometimes soporific. You’ll find sleep coming as I share the story of a guardsman facing his greatest trials, a brother needing money and standing at attention at the opening of parliament.

 

As I work in the hospitality industry the next few weeks are going to be very busy for me. I won’t be able to do much researching and writing, but I won’t leave you restless. I will have a selection of cold readings for your insomnia cures every week, right on schedule.
