While you all know that the dwarf detective is one for the low-tech solutions like Beatrice and a good battle-axe, you may not know that the award-winning The Case of The Singing Sword: A Billibub Baddings Mystery is now available for the iPhone! Sure you can download Billi on the iPhone and iPod Touch in audio but now you can pick up a copy of Billi’s first big case as an iPhone application. Along with The Case of The Singing Sword, the Fey Trickster is also causing (double) trouble at the iTunes Store with Chasing the Bard also available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Take a look and show the love. Let iPhone and iPod Touch users know that Double Trouble has now hit the iTunes Application store.

And yes, The Case of The Pitcher’s Pendant and Digital Magic are both en route. Stay tuned…


  1. I have run across many great apps on the iTunes app store, some not so great, and a few that I fealt were downright a waste of time and/or money.

    Regardless of what Apple intentions are for my iphone, IT has become my digital hub. Most of what I do when I am away from home (and even some while I’m at home) revolves around this technological marvel. This includes reading e-books.

    Last week while I was perusing e-books, I noticed that The Case of the Singing Sword was now available as a self contained app. I was overjoyed. This book (in podcast form) was my introduction to Tee’s work and is still one of my favorites. I was a little cautious at first due to the price, coming in at a svelte $4.99. Why you ask might ask? My caution was due simply to the disbelief that at that price point I would be getting the entire text, AND YET you do! If you do not have a copy of this wonderful novel, you can’t go wrong at this pricepoint. If you do all ready have a copy, but are like me and enjoy reading good books over and over (especially when you travel), this a great way to have a travel copy. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

    The app itself is well designed with minimal setting to fuss with. Tapping at the top of the screen reveals a control strip that allows you instant chapter navigation and the option to read white on black, or black on white (which is a great option for conserving battery life and not annoying your wife when you like to read late into the night). You can also control the size of the text using the patented pinching/extending motion that makes the iPhone and Touch such a joy to use.

    When all is said and done, I don’t know how you could be other than happy with the purchase of this (and come on, you might as well pick up Chasing the Bard at the same price while your at it) wonderfully entertaining read. For The Win!


  2. I do my best, J.R. Blackwell-Axelrod. 🙂 Thanks for making me look so damn good!
