Astrea Taylor returned to our studios to discuss her latest book, "Belle Dame Sans Merci," an urban fantasy novel that showcases the author's vivid imagination. The main character is a woman who has become a demon. She is trying to improve her karma enough to be admitted to heaven. Until she does so she'll continue with her lethal labors for a truly devilish boss. Taylor's vision of the precincts of hell is complex and profoundly amusing.

Fiona Barton served notice with her debut novel "The Widow" that she is a rising star in the world of crime fiction. Her second effort, "The Child," is just as compelling as her first book. Barton had a long career as a journalist and that background has served her well. Kate, her fictional investigative reporter has returned in the second book but don't think that just because she is back that these two books mark the start of a series. They don't. These are stand-alone thrillers.

Expanding from a trio to a five piece band, Manray joined Niki Dakota live in the WYSO studios for an acoustic set ahead of the release of their new album, Two Kinds of Worry

Manray will celebrate the release of Two Kinds of Worry on Saturday, August 5, at the Yellow Cab.  They'll be joined onstage by Gap Tooth Grin and Lioness.
