Professional reviews

"Strange forgotten towns, attics that transport one back in time, mystical visitors in the night--narrator Kirby Heyborne takes listeners through these subtly strange tales with the steady grace and tempo of a pro. As each story investigates a different aspect of the human condition, Heyborne is ready with a convincing voice suitable for the occasion--from the Hispanic accents of a group of men who purchase and share a transformative white linen suit to the faint, sophisticated British tones of an upper-class fair maid who is languishing from ennui in eighteenth-century London. Heyborne presses his own unique stamp into the words of a master storyteller with his clear inflections and inexhaustible vocal diversity as everyday life collides with magic and surrealism. E.E.
