The Trials of Thor


Tonight’s episode returns to the well of mythology. This time, a Norse tale about the Trials of Thor, a set of challenges presented to the mighty god by Utgarda-Loki, a king among the Giants of Jotunheim.

One of the websites I used for my research belongs to author Daniel McCoy, this is his book om Amazon. Judging by his website it should be very well researched and written, so give him some support if you’re inclined.

While there are many classic tales of Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman recently released his interpretation of the stories.

Check out our latest episode

Twin Peaks Pilot Pt 02


 We return to the the mysterious logging town of Twin Peaks as we spend some time finding out what really happened to Laura Palmer.

This is the second in a series of Twin Peaks recap episodes, the intention is to release mid week for a while in addition to the regular Sunday release.

Obviously there will be spoilers for the show, and while Twin Peaks does have some disturbing content, the intention of Sleepy Time Tales is to help you sleep, so I’ll avoid those bits as much as possible.

Amazon has some very interesting media for Twin Peaks, besides the show itself, including the apparently rather excellent book The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost, the show’s co-creator, so take a look.

I also announce the launch and details of the show’s Patreon. It may be a bit early for that in the show’s run, but it’s a move encouraged by Patreon’s upcoming rule changes. So it’s there if you feel inclined, or just keep aware of it until the day comes that you see the value. 🙂 No pressure.

To the Stars

A beautiful field of stars and clouds
Journey to the depths of space

It was the year 2360 when the human race left for the stars for the first time. A fleet of constant acceleration ships, built out of asteroids heading towards Proxima Centauri.

This is the story of the beginning of that journey.

Story: 14:03

One of the more recent story series that is in a similar vein to this story and the basic concept is The Expanse. As series of books and a TV show that are both well worth your time. Check them out from the links below.
