Description
Some people are born boring. Some live boring. Some even die boring. Fred managed to do all three, and when he woke up as a vampire, he did so as a boring one. Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort. One fateful night-different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful-Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos of the parahuman world: a world with chipper zombies, truck driver wereponies, maniacal necromancers, ancient dragons, and now one undead accountant trying his best to "survive." Because even after it's over, life can still be a downright bloody mess.

      • content: Fred just wanted to live a calm afterlife as an accountant who happens to be a vampire. But his high school friend, Krystal, has other plans for him as she takes him on a series of adventures involving all sorts of monsters. Kirby Heyborne narrates this first-person narrative with a good vocal balance, which can be challenging for this production. Initially, Fred is supposed to be a flat character, but Heyborne balances Fred's flatness with a stronger inflection during the narrative passages. He also provides a good range of character voices for the various monsters, which capture the creatures' strangeness without distracting from the story. L.E. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine

      • content: This full-cast production tells the tales of Fred, a cautious, awkward person who prefers mediocrity. Unfortunately for him, the paranormal world has a plethora of enthusiastic supernatural beings set on ruining his day. In this collection of episodes, the GraphicAudio dramatized style of enhanced sound adds a lot of dimension to the story. Timely background music plays throughout, fluctuating with Fred's moods and often giving the story a casual "day-in-the-life" vibe that matches his self-proclaimed "boring" profile. Soundscapes of large gatherings, such as a high school reunion and a LARPing event, especially enhance listeners' immersion into the story. Narrator Christopher Walker as Fred deftly highlights the character's uncertainty and reluctance in every new encounter. N.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
