Stop the Presses! Scrooge is Available on Paperback!

No, wait. Start the presses. Start them. Bad analogy.

Scrooge Is Looking For A Taxi

The retelling of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is now on paperback.

Scrooge is looking for a taxi to get home on Christmas Eve. But he will get the ride of his life, as he is walked through his past, his present and his future to end up a changed man.

Set in modern day Athens, this science-fiction version of the classic ghost story is guaranteed to bring shivers down your spine and a smile to your face.

“It isn’t too late for all us Scrooges, and this story did make me see more than the classic.”

“An entertaining, uplifting novella perfect to read during Christmastime.”

“This is a rollicking, hiccup producing, laugh out loud morality play that would make Dickens sit up and take notice. A lot of fun!”

Look at these gorgeous Victorian illustrations by Arthur Rackham, the book illustrator of Ebenezer Scrooge’s story. A fine Mythographer indeed. His gritty, realistic drawings inspired the director Guillermo del Toro, who cites Rackham as an influence on the design of “The Faun” of Pan’s Labyrinth.

Sounds fun. Can I get it in time for cozy reading with twinkly ambiance?

Get the paperback book just in time for Christmas:

Amazon says it’ll be there on time. Trust the AI. The AI never lies.

It’s available on Amazon and other regional stores.

Shop Directly From Us!

We have a shop, where you can browse or buy our stories directly from us.

Read. Whispersync. The wonders of technology. Then get cyberpunked.

You can pay with Paypal or just with any card through Paypal payment gateway. You will get downloadable files in these formats:

  • .Mobi
  • .PDF
  • .ePub

This is a list of the story categories currently available:

We actually prefer that you buy from the major retailers, cause that gets the algorithms rolling. But for various reasons we have the same stories available on our site.

In the future, we will offer variant covers that will not be available on any retailer.

Regarding Kindle Unlimited titles: We are experimenting with KU distribution. That, called Kindle Select, has an exclusivity clause that prevents us from even selling on our own site. Only Amazon stores are allowed. We generally don’t like that but as soon as the titles shift out of select we will update the products here.

We now accept cryptocurrency. Complete your checkout as normal, and you can choose from Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum or Monero. Send us an email at mythographystudios@gmail.com after sending payment to verify the transaction and get your files.

Houston Listens for Free

Audible made a nice gesture for the people in Houston, namely removing all cost for 3 months for the afflicted areas.

Audiobooks for everyone!

My colleagues at Audible, ACX, and I watched the terrible news about Hurricane Harvey with the same sense of “What can we do to help?” that so many others had. We’ve noted publishers making books available to schools, libraries and shelters in the area and applaud their efforts.

We wanted you to know that we’ve contacted the tens of thousands of Audible members in the greater Houston area to let them know their memberships are on Audible for the next three months and that they won’t be billed during this time. Our hope is that this makes life a little bit easier for our customers who are impacted by Harvey.

We did something similar after Hurricane Katrina and try to extend the same spirit of “do the right thing” in working with school kids in Newark (more on that soon). We won’t be billing our Houston-area members for their audio over the next three months. We’ve already gotten a few notes from members in Houston who are grateful for our offer. Let’s hope that listening to some high quality audio may brighten a bleak situation for some people.

Sincerely, Beth Beth Anderson EVP & Publisher Audible, Inc.

So, hoping it all gets better. Head over to our Audiobooks page and pick something if you’re in Houston.

No, wait! Half our stories are disaster/tragedy plots. Why would somebody want to read them in that situation?

Abort. Do not go there.

ABORT.

Lifehack: Use an Older Phone to Listen to Audiobooks

Here’s something I thought of, and wanted to share with you in case it helps: Put your older smartphone to use by making it an audiobook device. 

This is a great way to strangle yourself while sleeping. Try to avoid that. Lifehack!

Here’s why that’s helpful:

  • Phone storage. Audiobooks actually take up hundreds of megabytes of space. It’s very easy to fill up your phone’s memory, and a hassle to start shifting things around. If you’re like me, who listens to 2-3 audiobooks alternatively depending on the mood, you’ll need about 1 gigabyte of space reserved for them.
  • Phone battery. The playback draws quite a bit of battery. Instead of draining your phone overnight and wearing the battery life, just push your old phone to its very limits.
  • Audible syncs your listens and library across all devices. You can still use your own phone or tablet as normal, and the listening points will sync if you have WiFi on. Simple as that.
  • Separate car device for playback. If your car lacks smartdevice capabilities, you can just use an old phone and plug it in. Here’s Audible’s own advice for car listening.

In this time and age, there’s no way you can’t get your hands on an older smartphone that’s sitting unused in a shelf somewhere. You can use it without a SIM card, load Audible on it and connect to your account. There’s no limit to how many devices you can connect to one Amazon account, though you might get a security warning.

For example, I’m using my perfectly capable Nokia Lumia, which I discarded because I got fed up with the Windows Phone app ecosystem. Audible’s app is available on Windows Phones, so there’s no problem with playback and syncing. You can put the sleep timer to use and have the audiobook playback stop at a reasonable point:

If you’re listening to James Masters’ deep, lulling voice, the sleep timer button is your friend.

Also, here are two more accessories you might need for audiobook listening:

Noise cancelling earbuds, for outside listening.

A bus or a train ride can become noisy enough to prevent you from listening in to your book. Especially train rides, their decibel levels are shocking when you pay attention to them. You could use active noise cancelling, but those are more expensive and I honestly don’t like the separation from the environment while being outside. It’s one thing making an hour-long commute bearable by listening to a few pages, and quite another to completely shut yourself out of the world. The passive earbuds are good enough to let you listen in noisy environments.

Tip: The button can start or stop playback.

A flexible, spider grip holder for your phone.

This is one of the more useful things you can shop for. you can adjust the grip so it holds up your phone on the desk, ties around a night-stand lamp or sits nicely on your car dashboard.

Tip: As an added bonus, it can scare the crap out of someone at proper illumination levels!

What’s that? You have nothing to listen to?
