This deserves to be heard...
That great character actor, Sam Kelly, well known for his performances in 'Allo 'Allo! and Porridge, and my wife, Heather, became great friends during Heather's spell as a professional theatrical costume maker and designer. Shortly after our marriage, Heather asked Sam if he would read and give his opinion on the emerging draft of Bizarre Fables. To my relief, he was impressed and, better still, offered to record three of his favourite tales from the collection. We give the first one here, "The Christmas Journey," and I suppose Sam's choice reveals his enduring love of Christmas. We will always be grateful for Sam for giving three such great performances, in support of the Bizarre Fables project. He did the recordings at his own home, and was apologetic about the occasional "clicks" from his tape recorder. He need not have apologised - we loved the recordings, because he did such a wonderful job. Sadly, Sam passed away in 2014 and is greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
His reading of "The Christmas Journey" is now on Youtube, and it is also on our own website -

This is fantastic! I had no idea Sam had this in him. What a talented man.
