Koschey knows I hate clowns with a passion. So, of course, the wretch has insisted upon coming as a clown to the Masque Ball. Well you won't get me anywhere near him and I'd advise the rest of you to avoid him and that Party Punch he is in the habit of distributing all over the world. No wonder everyone is suffering from increased anxiety.

It can't be true...

Look at what I found in the Mailbag today! He's cleaned up a bit....
Swinging bachelor with private mountain hideaway
seeks special, darlink lady to accompany me
to a Masqued Ball.
I will make all of your vishes come true, darlink,
and you will never in your wildest dreams find someone
as handsome as Koschey.
Call me!

A Masque Ball in the Boudoir



Baba has been thinking and when Baba thinks anything is likely to happen. She has been wary of all these artistic types who have descended upon her and has decided to test them a little. She is planning to have a Masque Ball in her Boudoir. Everyone is expected to come in full costume, make a grand entrance and amuse Baba with a short act. Is that a distant cackle I hear or that old rooster crowing joyfully?

Message From The Silk Road


Hi Everyone!

Just an update from the Silk Road from your faithful Storyteller...

First I'd like you to meet some of my new friends:

Marie Guzman has just embarked on a Journey
she believes she's in control of...but if the Baba Yaga is involved, well, who's really in control is very much opened to debate and we'll have to see exactly what happens there.


I've shaken the tree and who should fall out but those Nasty Malloy Sisters ( God love 'em cause no one else does! ) that challenge me whenever I try to write about them.


And I've heard a rumor that that Summra and Wintra... two Sideshow Performers from Duwamish Bay have hit the Silk Road because, if I understand it correctly the Curiosity Shop in Duwamish Bay is sick.

In fact its dieing

Don't ask me how a building is dieing, I guess you'll just have to stay tuned to find out.




I just wanted to let you know that I've taken to listening to these old radio shows on tape...Mystery Theater, Lights Out...so I'm totally inspired to write these Weird Tales in a new...er, you know vein.

Time for me to grab my notebook and hit the road...

Travellers Heading to Baba's House



The Amazon Queen has heard that Baba is organising the Advent Calendar this year and has 'all hands on deck'. So she has made haste to be at Baba's and help with the preperations. The Golden Spinning Wheel will be heard whirling late into the night.


The skies above Baba's are full of traffic as travellers make their way to her house to work on the annual Advent Calendar. Going to the House of Baba Yaga will be like attending an artist's convention and Baba is, frankly, excited. She has her Soul Hands working their fingers to the bone to have the place ready for such distinguished visitors.

A Story of an Australian Raven

Gail is so lucky to meet and talk to a raven
I am not so fortunate
They do not like the sea winds
They do not like travelling over white capped waves.
I must seek them out inland
No often seen for me in my territory
Unless I go to where they nest
High high up perhaps 40ft in the tree tops.
nesting in their little houses made
of wool,bark and sticks
If I go into parks of tall trees
I will hear them ,with their little ones
between August and December...
So it is now I must go to hear them
I look up my Gould book of Birds
To know what their call is like
It Says......
The Australian Raven wails,it rattles and it frequently makes loud deep slow
calls that sound like "I am half starved" and with a gargle
on the end......How wonderful I thought.
This should be a breeze
I will walk with my ears open wide
My eyes to the sky
being carefull not to trip over protruding tree roots
and obstructions of all sorts.
A Mother raven and a Father raven will quite often be together
when searching for food to feed the little ones
But beware they are quick of flight and very direct in their destination, they do not dally to talk to us
So Gail you must have had your thought conversation at a time when there were no dependants in the nest.....How fortunate you were..

Life is good for Ravens a very smart bold bird I think.
