Publisher's Summary

Inspired by the stories of Baron Munchausen by Rudolf Erich Raspe, The Barren Author is not a literal adaptation but instead take the satirical, provocative and absurd spirit of the original tales and re-imagines them for the modern age. These fantastical stories are perfectly suited to an immersive audio experience that has, at its heart, the powerful, witty and commanding storytelling of its central character, played expertly by Richard O’Brien.

In this second series, the Brigadier returns for more extraordinary adventures with Smith, his kind but sceptical publisher. Fresh from having shot himself out of a cannon, the Brigadier suddenly discovers he has the rather annoying ability to travel through time...but this rather unusual power comes at a high cost. Whether it will be enough to save himself, the planet and his only friend though is another matter altogether. The fateful clock is ticking, and time is surely running out....

In this final showdown, the Brigadier’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, and Smith is forced to make a dramatic choice. Is she prepared to believe the unbelievable stories of her friend or side with an old enemy to get Munchausen the help that he needs?
