About the Author

RE Johnston writes speculative fiction for teens and young-minded adults, blowing their minds open to experience what their lives would be like if only. In his debut novel, Two Moons, RE introduced us to a planet (much like ours) populated with people (much like us) who have detailed memories of their past lives on Earth (where they were us.) Now he has expanded Two Moons' world into a series, Echoes of Past Lives, with the second book, League of Secrets. He is irrationally optimistic that young adult reincarnation fiction will become the next big thing. RE has degrees in physics and management. He spent a very long time developing systems and bossing people around, but he's finally settled down to invent new worlds. He lives with his wife, Valerie, in Fort Worth, Texas: Where the West Begins. To receive a free prequel novella to the Echoes of Past Lives series, and to be notified as new books come out, please visit his website at re-johnston.com.
Nicholas Buxton is the Director of St Antony's Priory, Durham, creator of Just Meditation and founder of the Newcastle Meditation Centre. He has been practising meditation for over twenty five years, and teaching it for more than fifteen, having studied within both Buddhist and Christian monastic traditions. He has a PhD in Buddhist Philosophy, and is the author of Tantalus and the Pelican: exploring monastic spirituality today (2009), and The Wilderness Within: meditation and modern life (2014).

Jonathan Cecil (1939-2011) was a vastly experienced actor, appearing at Shakespeare's Globe as well as in such West End productions as The Importance of Being Earnest, The Seagull, and The Bed before Yesterday. He toured in The Incomparable Max, Twelfth Night, and An Ideal Husband, while among his considerable television and film appearances were The Rector's Wife, Just William, Murder Most Horrid, and As You Like It.

Reviews

Jonathan Cecil's gifted narration brings uniqueness to this (among the many) audio presentation of the ongoing adventures of Jeeves and Bertie. The narrator adopts a mixture of seriousness and hilarity in this story about a much coveted eighteenth-century cow creamer and Bertie's attempt to rescue it for his always difficult Aunt Dahlia. It is a credit to Cecil's style that listeners will listen closely to and follow the frequent puns, misunderstandings, and wordplay.

-- "AudioFile"

Bertie and Jeeves are at their best in The Code of the Woosters.

-- "Newsweek"

Wodehouse is the funniest writer-that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun-that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.

-- "New Yorker"
