     Grumpuss: 15th Anniversary Audio Theater Edition (79 min. 2 sec.) is a two-CD set rendering Travis Edward Pike’s award-winning epic fantasy poem into audio “theater of the mind”. This is the original 1998 studio recording of Grumpuss, read aloud by the author and rescued from archives, remastered with fresh recordings of Pike’s original music, enhanced with sound effects. What, may you ask, is a Grumpuss? It’s a legendary beast similar to a ferocious cat, “With trmendous paws and gigantic claws, and jaws that can crush armor flat!” Grumpuss: 15th Anniversary Audio Theater Edition is a treat for fantasy connoisseurs, a welcome addition to public library audiobook collections, and makes an excellent gift.
Also highly recommended is Travis Edward Pike’s Grumpuss 1997 Premiere Performance DVD (1 hour, 38 min.), the original DVD adaptation of the Grumpuss saga.

(Otherworld Cottage Industries)
Genre: Fantasy, Storytelling
Summary:   A retelling of Pike’s unlikely tale of a “large” cat, a mythical monster of terrifying proportions, the two-disc Grumpuss finds the author providing a narrative not unlike a traditional tale from the Middle Ages. The author’s affectation of an English accent requires the listener to lean in close to fully appreciate all the wacky wordplay, but Pike’s obvious enthusiasm alone allows for some superb storytelling.
