Publisher's Summary

A fresh take on cosmic horror....
A Victorian Englishman summons a strange puppet-like being to an old Colonial Inn. A doctor returns from the Great War and discovers a mysterious naked woman at the edge of the Atlantic.
A contemporary collector of arcane books retraces the steps of these other men - adventurers who sought out the mysteries of neighboring dimensions.
In The Sea of Ash, Scott Thomas takes us along as three men from three different centuries experience the wonders and horrors of an unknown New England.
Never had the universe felt so vast, and I so small within it. I had, through circumstance, been made aware of something, but of what? Something either too horrible or too beautiful for humans to know.

Simply the best book I've listened to in years.

Where does The Sea of Ash rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Absolutely at the top. This story grabbed me from the first chapter and then kept my attention throughout. It is the most wonderful and imaginative thing I've "read" in years.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sea of Ash?

The book is set up as little vignettes told chapter by chapter. So, even though you're listening to a narrative strung throughout, each chapter acts as its own little adventure. There is literally some new and memorable moment in every chapter, but for me, nothing will beat the doctor dropping a sinker tied to fishing line through a dimensional hole in a dead baby's face... Or the narrator visiting the Spirito Macchina... or the tiny lump that begins growing in the center of Doctor Pond's chest... or, or, or...

Which character – as performed by Leeman Kessler – was your favorite?

Definitely Vincent Banchini. Leeman's entire performance is nothing short of stellar, but he seems to have mentally cast Patrick Warburton as Banchini, and it is a thing of hilarious beauty.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not only did I want to, I actually DID, and when I was finished, I listened to it all over again.

Any additional comments?

This story is a treasure, a wonder, a gift from its creators to the world. Thomas wrote something weird and wonderful, full of characters with unique voices, and Kessler met the challenge head on. This was a match made in heaven. I can't wait for the movie!

really enjoyed

I think Fractured Harry would be a good focus for a collection of short stories.
