As the world celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day—from Brazil to Baltimore, from Trafalgar Square to Boston Common—the day that originally was a Catholic Feast Day, but has now come to include the celebrations around the globe of all things Irish by the Irish Diaspora (and millions of “Irish-For-A-Day” folks!), we thought it a perfect time to celebrate Edgar Poe’s Irish heritage.
THE POE FAMILY COMES FROM IRELAND It begins, as far back as can be reliably traced, to Edgar’s great-great-grandfather David Poe in the town of Dring, County Cavan, Ireland, about 75 miles north of Dublin. (There are going to be a few “Davids” in our brief re-cap, so get your score cards ready!)
Please donate to our production of ALONE The Life of Poe starring Jeffrey Combs! Please give what you can. Every bit helps make it a reality!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day 2019!

If you are brand-new to the works and life of the great American storyteller and poet Edgar Allan Poe, this recording is for you!
Sherwin Cody wrote this biography for beginners of the wonderful works and life of Poe as part of a series of books for young readers in 1899. Mark Redfield, who narrates this book, has made some small revisions where needed, updating the manuscript for historic accuracy based on new information since “The Story of Edgar Allan Poe” was originally published. Poems by Poe have been added to this spoken word addition, that were not in the 1899 original.
If you’re just beginning your journey into the life and works of Edgar Allan Poe, this audio recording is perfect for you!
If you are a seasoned Poe aficionado, then share and gift this spoken word recording of “The Story of Edgar Allan Poe” with a young person just meeting Poe for the first time!
NO INTERNATIONAL ORDERS AT THIS TIME. THANK YOU.

THE RAVEN, FOREVERMORE
Edgar Allan Poe’s infamous poem “The Raven” was published on 29 January, 1843.
There is, perhaps, no other single piece of writing in Poe’s life and work that helped to catapult him to fame, to make him a “rock star”,than that one poem.
The narrative poem was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. It was immediately pirated and printed in dozens of other newspapers and periodicals across the country. Soon, everybody knew Poe, “nevermore” and the raven, but it didn’t improve Poe’s bank account a penny.
We are are proud to debut this new recording by actor and composer Jennifer Rouse. The female voice adds a new, wonderful dimension to this ever-living poem. Rouse’s performances strong and lyrical, and her music is a fine underscore to Poe words.

WELCOME TO REDFIELD ARTS AUDIO!
Welcome, dear listener!
If you love great audio drama and audio books, you've come to the right place. We’re currently in production with some wonderful audio drama and books and we can't wait to share them with you!
Coming up as we move toward the new year is an exciting seven-part audio drama series about a haunted theater in Seattle. We call it SEASON 13: A SEATTLE CHRISTMAS CAROL. We’ve assembled a fine cast of voice actors, including Rik Deskin, Olivia McMahon, and Brinke Stevens. I get to play the main ghost that stalks the fictional Majestic Theatre in our story, called Jack Fairbanks. If you love the theater, theater folk, stories of old Hollywoood and old Broadway, and fun ghost stories, this series hits Audible and iTunes just after Thanksgiving!
Speaking of Dickens' classic ghost story (which is the play they're presenting in our series “Season 13: A Seattle Christmas Carol”) I'm doing an all-new reading of the original story, with all new music and sound effects by Jennifer Rouse. My favorite ghost story!
Next year will see the release of some great, original audio drama, including THE CRIMES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (from my original story) and more Holmes action in David Gerrold’s THE CASE OF THE GREEN CARNATION.
We will continue to produce Poe audio adaptations and audio books. In 2018 listen for our audio book THE STORY OF EDGAR ALLAN POE (a wonderful primer for people new to Poe’s life and work) and our adaptation of Poe’s gooiest horror tale, VALDEMAR.
The series of novels that I co-write with Stuart Voytilla will also be an audio drama series in 2018. I'm very excited about these projects. The audio adventures of vampire hunter Bertram Welles in Manhattan will be a series of fully dramatized 30 minute episodes, many based on the collection of short stories called MANHATTAN AFTER MIDNIGHT, to be published Ina few months.
Audio books of CULT OF THE NOSFERATU and a full dramatization of HARKER AND THE SHADOW OF DRACULA co-starring Caroline Munro (who did SINBAD AND THE PIRATE PRINCESS with us) are in the works.
There is so much coming and I hope that you will visit us here regularly to keep up with all the new titles and projects, and our events and shows and conventions that we will be appearing at through-out the year.
And don't forget to sign up for our mailing list so that we can tell you about breaking news of our work as it happens, before anyone else!
