Archie Royle is a kind, funny, gentle man. 
He's also my dad. My storyteller. My hero. 
Except he doesn't remember my face any more.  
His world, these days, doesn't include me or his family. 
Life may have changed for him, but he hasn't given up on life.  
Not at all.  
It's just different.  
Dad still tells his stories, albeit for a new audience. 
He makes people smile and chuckle. As he always did. 
He's a fighter, a survivor and maybe sometimes too clever for his own good! He'll surprise you. I can assure you of that.  
Welcome to Magic O'Clock, where time is irrelevant and hope is unlimited.  
This story is purely fictional, but the emotions are all too real.
Available since: 05/07/2017.

    "A Chameleon" is a short sketch about the occurrence at the town square, where the main characters were a craftsman Hryukin, policeman Otchumyelov and stray puppy, surprisingly turned to be a property of the general's brother. Hearing about the bite suddenly turns into a scene of Otchumelov's attempts to save face in front of the curious crowd and maneuver between his ambitions and subservience. It is obvious that the story contains a satirical generalization. Psychology of this early story is not expressed verbally, not through the inner speech of the characters and not through the speech of the author-narrator, but through the external behavior - gestures, facial expressions, body movements, actions.A SmartTouch Media production.

    The Damon Runyon Theatre Hour.  Damon Runyon is acknowledged as one of the great writers to come out of twentieth century America.  Runyon's short stories are almost always told in the first person by a narrator who is never named, and whose role is unclear; he knows many gangsters and has no job that can be gleaned from his musings, nor does he admit to any criminal involvement; He’s a bystander, an observer, an average street-corner Joe.  Runyon described himself as "being known to one and all as a guy who is just around".  That line seems to say a lot about Runyon and his life.  It was like you were with him on some street corner hustle or some shady dive and he was filling you in on all the angles, all the gossip, all of life. He was who so many people wanted to be with……or so many people wanted to be.  Of course, the cliché about newspapermen and writers is that they are heavy drinkers, chain-smokers, gamblers and obsessively chase women with a sideline in the gathering of stories and facts and actually getting something written just before the deadline hits. That seems like Damon Runyon and his life summed up in one sentence.  His stories became legendary ways of looking that bit differently at America, of soaking up the atmosphere of a glamorous and rip-roaring age and distilling it into black and white type or, in our case, The Damon Runyon Theatre Hour.

    A collection of poems from the mid-career of this renowned Irish poet, the title poem referring to the estate of his friend and mentor, Lady Gregory. The poems display Yeats' use of symbols (cat, hare, moon, etc), his attachment to the supernatural and Irish folklore, and his recourse to alter egos (Aherne and Robartes). They also exemplify his distinctive style of expression. (Summary by Peter Tucker)

    Falling into Forever is the story of a young woman with a unique ability... 
    She can see people's entire lives in a flash when she makes direct eye contact with them. 
    Things get even weirder when she comes face to face with an old man with the same mysterious ability. To her bewilderment, the man isn't a stranger at all. 
    Together, they fall into a seemingly endless loop of lifetimes before settling in an infinitely blissful, spiritual realm. But they choose not to stay... 
    The narrative mimics her ability, creating an interplay of multiple layers within the story. As a reader, you become immersed in her experiences, the same way she sees glimpses of other people's lives. 
    Falling into Forever is the adventure of, not one, but multiple lifetimes.

    Edward Page Mitchell – An Introduction 
    Edward Page Mitchell was born in Bath, Maine on 24th March 1852 into a wealthy family.  When he was eight the family moved to a house on New York’s Fifth Avenue. 
    In 1863 he witnessed the Draft Riots and in the aftermath Mitchell's father moved the family to Tar River, North Carolina. It was there, at the age of fourteen, that his letters were first published in the local newspaper The Bath Times. 
    In 1872, at age twenty, whilst on a train journey to Bath, Maine, a hot cinder from the engine's smokestack flew in through the window blinding his left eye.  After several weeks, while doctors attempted to restore his sight his uninjured right eye underwent sympathetic blindness.  He was now completely blind. His burnt left eye eventually regained its sight, but his uninjured right eye remained blind and was later removed surgically and replaced with a prosthetic glass eye. While recovering from this surgery, Mitchell wrote his famed story ‘The Tachypomp’. 
    He became a journalist for the Daily Advertiser in Boston, where his mentor was Edward Everett Hale, now also recognized as an early pioneer of science fiction. 
    Mitchell’s influence on science fiction writing is incredible, pre-dating many major themes. He wrote about a man made invisible (‘The Crystal Man’, 1881), a time-travel machine (‘The Clock that Went Backward’), about faster-than-light travel (‘The Tachypomp’, 1874), a thinking computer and a cyborg (‘The Ablest Man in the World’, 1879), matter transmission or teleportation (‘The Man without a Body’, 1877), superior mutants (‘Old Squids and Little Speller’) and mind transfer (‘Exchanging Their Souls’, 1877). Add to this other stories which predicted travel by pneumatic tube, electrical heating, newspapers printed at home, food-pellet concentrates, international broadcasts, and suspended animation through cryogenics amount to talents that are not as publicly lauded as they should be. 
    He had a lifelong interest in the supernatural and paranormal—several early newspaper pieces are factual investigations of alleged hauntings and usually he determined they had rational explanations. 
    In 1874, Mitchell married Annie Sewall Welch and they had four children.  
    In 1903, Mitchell became editor-in-chief of the New York Sun, then the Nation’s leading newspaper. 
    In 1912, following Annie’s death, he married Ada M. Burroughs and produced a fifth son. Mitchell remained a popular and respected figure in American journalism and writing up to his death. 
    Edward Page Mitchell died of a cerebral hemorrhage in New London, Connecticut on 22nd January 1927.  He was 76.
