A Cure for Exhaustion

Tonight the editor of Dante's Heart is rummaging the house to find a cure for exhaustion. He remembers having seen it before, a tiny little quartz bottle with a cork stopper, an heirloom from his great-grandmother. He remembers the liquid inside sounds like the humming of bees when you shake up the bottle.

Long Ago Far Away

Dear readers,

I have been delighted to find a few clips on youtube (here is one below) of a television series I grew up with, Long Ago Far Away. This series of animated fairytales (using every medium from line drawing to stop animation) was often introduced or narrated by James Earl Jones of Darth Vader fame.

This wonderful series of fairy tales was a delight of my childhood. Definitely take a look at this clip of "Janko Raven" - you will be enchanted!

Does anyone know, by any chance, where recordings of "Long Ago Far Away" can be located/purchased? My machete-hunting through the wild ferns of Ebay has not turned up much....

Editor, Dante's Heart
