Rafak Aliri and the Book of Shadows – LIVE at Balticon 47

Hey Metamorphs!

It was my pleasure this year to return to Balticon, along with a cast of highly talented men and women and an all-new Metamor City audio drama. The recording equipment we had was limited, so there are a few places where the audio glitched on us and doesn’t sound as good as I’d like — but the story is all there, and I think it getting the story out to those who couldn’t be there more than makes up for the limitations in the equipment.

“Rafak Aliri and the Book of Shadows” was written by Chris Lester and Mildred Cady, with some original music by Marnen Leibow-Koser.

The Metamor City Players, in order of appearance, are:

Chris Lester, as Rafak Aliri
R. E. Chambliss, as Betty
Hugh O’Donnell, as Neela Viornery
Mildred Cady, as Xiang Jinn
Doc Coleman, as a Worker and Lightbringer Agent #2
Laura Nicole, as Nona Candle
Bryan Lincoln, as Michael Spence
Patrick Scaffido, as Whitney Kendall
Nobilis Reed, as Caine Dorr
Veronica Giguere, as Agent Kelsey Stanton
