Great SF & F Since 1994!
Hadrosaur Productions was founded in 1994 by Kumie Wise as
part of a business project at the University of Arizona. Her goal was to present
science fiction fans with the most dynamic audio productions of science fiction
anywhere. She, along with fellow student, Melissa Guy, developed the original
business plan and marketing strategy for The Pirates of Sufiro audio series,
written by author David Lee Summers.
After the success of the Pirates audio series, Hadrosaur's next audio project was Culhwch and Olwen, the oldest known of the King Arthur stories. The story was told by Pirates author, David Lee Summers, with music by Kevin Schramm of Tucson's premier Celtic band, The Mollys.
Hadrosaur has produced other audio projects including Sugar Time by Joy V. Smith. Sugar Time is an audio time travel adventure featuring a full cast with music and sound effects. To learn more about each of these projects along with Hadrosaur's fine line of print books, visit the
Hadrosaur Productions on-line bookstore.
Hadrosaur's most recent audio project is an all new edition of The Pirates of Sufiro along with its
sequels. All three audio books are now available at Podiobooks.com
and at iTunes.
In 1995, Hadrosaur Productions, with Kumie still at the helm, moved from Tucson, Arizona to the current offices in Las Cruces, New Mexico. David Summers, author of The Pirates of Sufiro joined the staff as editorial director. William Grother joined as publisher. Together, they created Hadrosaur Tales a science fiction and fantasy anthology series.
Over its ten-year run, Hadrosaur Tales presented many fine authors including award winners Tim Lebbon and Randy Ashburn, along with noted authors such as Neal Asher, Keith Allen Daniels, and Uncle River. Join these authors, along with many other talented authors and poets as Hadrosaur Tales moves into the 21st century under
the new name, Tales of the Talisman.
Tales of the Talisman
A talisman is any object having apparently magical power. To us, stories and poems are magical. They have
the power to transport you to other times and places and let you hear the thoughts of others. Books and
literary magazines are the most powerful of talismans. Tales of the Talisman is Hadrosaur's magazine of
science fiction, fantasy and horror that features the same quality of writing that distinguished Hadrosaur Tales
illustrated many of the finest artists working today. Take up the talisman and
