Tales from the Archives, Volume 2 — One

The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has many forgotten stories in its Archives. Stories of madcap adventures in all corners of the Empire, dark doings in hidden places, and mysterious devices and artifacts that the everyday citizen should never become aware of for fear it would quite undo their minds.

In this episode:

Sins of the Father— written and narrated by Tee Morris

Summer, 1888

Arthur Books welcomes home his son, Wellington, from the jungles and deserts of Africa. In his own manner, the invalid father bestows upon his heir all the pride and respect due to actions in the field. The returning war hero, though, has returned more than a decorated soldier in Her Majesty’s Army; and Arthur collects on an investment spanning across decades.

Featuring Pip Ballantine as Lillian Books and House Liaison

About the Author: 

Tee Morris began his writing career with his 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana. In 2005 Tee took MOREVI into the then-unknown podosphere, making his novel the first book podcast in its entirety. That experience led to the founding of Podiobooks.com and collaborating with Evo Terra and Chuck Tomasi on Podcasting for Dummies and its follow-up, Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. He won acclaim and accolades for his cross-genre fantasy-detective Billibub Baddings Mysteries, the podcast of The Case of the Singing Sword winning him the 2008 Parsec Award for Best Audio Drama. Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel marked Tee’s return to fiction, and earned him the 2011 Airship Award for Best Steampunk Literature and honors on Goodreads’ 2011 Choice Award for Best Science Fiction. Tee can be heard on Tales from the Archives, Fit 2 Write, and The Shared Desk.

  1. Absolutely wonderful! I seriously cannot wait for more (more Ministry in general and more Wellington in particular.)
