"The Book Of Magic", from Russia, is one of the stories in the manner of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", about someone attempting magic and getting in over his head. And the solution involves a trick very common to folklore about magical spells. This yarn is a bit spooky, because we're getting into the "spirit" of Halloween early.

We come to you from New Jersey, where the floodwaters from Hurricane Irene have receded just in time for us to end our summer library season - much later than usual, even though we started much earlier than usual.

We discuss our recent trip to New York City, where we took a bus tour of Manhattan and saw "Billy Elliot" on Broadway. The show still has us tapping our feet!

P.S. Nominations for Podcast Awards are now open. Please nominate your favorite podcasts this week. We'd be honored if you'd consider Activated Stories for the Cultural / Arts category. Thanks!

Happy Listening,

Dennis (Visiting Soldier, Varioius Spirits) and Kimberly (Narrator, Home Soldier, Various Spirits)
