Audiovile

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Audiovile is Michael Arnzen at his weirdest and, well, most vile. Known for his entertaining and over-the-top readings, he now takes it one step further with the addition of some musical madness. This is not so much an audiobook as it is an album of flash fiction, a truly unique experience, performed by a winner of several Bram Stoker Awards. Most of the 16 tracks are taken from the ground-breaking short story collection 100 Jolts, but this recording also includes some new material.

"This collection of recordings will disturb and entertain you for more reasons than the obvious; remember the first time you heard The Doors' "The End" and Jim Morrison's long, chilling soliloquy in the middle? Or the An American Prayer album - an audio suicide note set to music? The pieces on Audiovile often put me in mind of these moments, because they disturbed me on the same, visceral level - but because these pieces are based on the works on Mike Arnzen, there's also a lot of simple, weird fun to be had, as well, and the musicianship displayed throughout is flawless. A genuine one-of-kind recording." - (Gary A. Braunbeck, Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Award-winning author of Destinations Unknown, Prodigal Blues, and Mr. Hands)
