Customer Review: “This is one of the best (if not the best purchases/investments) I’ve made all year. I’m excited to share it with my family. At $99, this is really quite a steal…given The Odyssey alone is worth as much. (Not to mention, other such amazing series in this collection–Hercules, The Hidden Grail, etc…) –Norman Chiang

Grab Your Tickets for Odds Bodkin’s HEARTPOUNDERS Show on Zoom this Friday Night!

Grab your tickets for Odds Bodkin’s HEARTPOUNDERS show on Zoom this Friday night and enjoy some adult storytelling! It’s live. It’s musical. It’s terrifying.

What are the stories?

THE STORM BREEDER

If you curse Nature, it curses you in return. Peter Rugg of Boston learns this immutable fact when he offends Nature. Now thunderstorms chase him. Is he alive or dead? And why has no one seen his ravaged face in fifty years, even though people see him often on old New England’s stormy roads? Only innocent Jonathan Dunwell, after chasing the Storm Breeder, sees the horrific face. Forever, his soul and body are scarred.

THE DEMON HEADS

After escaping a terrible massacre, a samurai buries his weapons forever and becomes an itinerant priest. His prayers are his only power. Yet in a battle with forest demons, he needs his old warrior skills. Whether he survives or not, after you hear the end of the story, is a matter of opinion.

THE GIRL WHO DANCED WITH THE DEVIL

Pierre sees the hooves of the stranger’s horse sunk into the melted snow, steam pouring up its shanks. Who is this handsome dancer who owns this horse and who is waltzing in the barn with Rose, Pierre’s fiancée? Even now, she’s fighting for her life as the stranger’s claws, hidden in his gloves, tighten around her.

Master Storyteller, Author and Musician Odds Bodkin invites you to enjoy these three supernatural tales with him as he tells them live with character voices, realistic vocal effects and full scores on 12-string guitars and Celtic harp.

Where’s My Bravecto?

I drove up to Wendell Veterinary Clinic in Newport, New Hampshire the other day, about a fifteen-minute drive, and stood in the downpour under my umbrella outside their Covid window.

In return for handing the young woman my folded check for $60–I whipped it over super-fast since the rain was coming down hard between my umbrella and her window–she handed me a bag containing one Bravecto. It’s a miracle pill.

Back home, Samson our dog ate the chewable with great glee, thinking it was just another tasty snack, snorting with delight down there on the kitchen floor.

“What have I got for that boy?” I’d said, building it up like I always do when I’m preparing to give him a snack. No different from Pupperoni, which he adores, or Dentastix, which are minty and good for his, well, dog’s breath.

Bravecto. It’s a miracle pill because Samson is no longer in danger of contracting Lyme Disease for the next three months. Ticks, fleas and any other nasty little arthropods that crawl onto him, once they bite and dig in, well, all of them die in about six hours. His blood has become poisonous to them. Deer Ticks, the tiny carriers of Lyme, don’t have time to transfer the nasty bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi (scientist Willy Burgdorfer discovered the spirochete in 1981) into Samson’s bloodstream. Instead, the ticks die and dry up, flaking off by themselves. Wood ticks, too. All of them.

The active agent in Bravecto, I’ve learned, is called fluralaner. It’s revolutionary. A stunning advance in veterinary medicine. Gone are the days of flea collars and combing through my dog’s fur for blood-filled bugaboos.

Why am I writing such an unnecessary post about something so mundane? Because 400,000 people a year contract Lyme Disease in the U.S. It’s treatable, but only if you recognize its complex symptoms early enough. Otherwise, you can be messed up for life.

As a man who used to run in the woods in total abandon, fearless and free, busting through thickets and crossing tall grass fields here in New Hampshire, at least until Lyme arrived and the woods became a place to worry about, I have a glaring and probably obvious question to ask.

Where is my Bravecto pill? You know, my human version?

Please, Big Pharma, you could sell millions and millions of these pills. How about it, Merck?

Guys like me would buy them every three months.

HEARTPOUNDERS: Halloween Tales of Horror…Odds Bodkin returns to Zoom on Oct. 29th!

A 90-minute live storytelling event!

Friday, Oct. 29th at 7 pm EST

When the wind roars, the whip cracks and the horse gallops into the storm, you know you’re hearing Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin tell The Storm Breeder, the legend of an undead man doomed to flee thunderstorms across New England. The 12-string guitar score rivets you to the storyteller’s hands, while his face, close up on Zoom, transforms from character to character.

He’s called “a consummate storyteller” by The New York Times and this HEARTPOUNDERS performance is one of the reasons why. Experience vocal effects so realistic, the sounds evoke cinema in viewers’ minds, even as a host of characters come to life. And it all breathes with music, building tension and emotion as each tale powers toward its shocking end.

Drawn from supernatural traditions around the world, these tales come complete with introductory lore. A full 90-minute evening of imagination entertainment. Heartpounders with Odds Bodkin.
