A brand new fortnightly audio entitled ‘Sunday Stories’ is to start this week at The House of Beasts & Vines, Martin Shaw’s subscription newsletter.

On February 6, the series will kick off with an old, Irish story. Says Martin: “It’s a story with a lot of spook and gnostic information.”

Over the coming months, these audio recordings, which will be available only to paid subscribers, will come direct from Martin’s desk, down by the river, or out on the moor.

Also available now are the first two sections of The Voyage of Brendan, with commentary. Part Two – A Jasconius Christianity – was uploaded yesterday.

Some free tasters are available, but for the cost of a London pint (around £5), subscribers get exclusive access to the full essays, stories and everything in the vault as it builds up. Martin says: “I’m also adding drawings that I cook up en route. The whole thing is fresh bread from the oven of my imagination.”We’ll be entering a great treasury of stories and deep ideas I’ve been working with. I hope you will join me for the adventure.”
