Gary Randolph, Storyteller
Amusing books and lively storytelling programs from Indiana to Ireland to outer space.


Located in Anderson, Indiana, Gary Randolph is an author and storyteller. His books spin tales of murder mysteries and outer space, generally with a heaping spoonful of humor. As a storyteller he performs around central Indiana to both adults and children. He weaves together a mix of stories, songs, poems, and jokes that can transport audiences into another time and place. He specializes in stories of Ireland and Scotland, but is equally comfortable talking and singing about growing up in Indiana, pirates, history and more.

"You were a HUGE hit at my Tuesday Ladies Luncheon! I could not have been more pleased with how everything turned out. Your program was wonderful. You included the perfect mix of stories, jokes, songs, and poems. You expertly played to your audience. The ladies loved it! Seldom do I receive much feedback on events that we coordinate, but your program was the exception. I have received a lot of positive unsolicited comments about much they all enjoyed it."
"What a treat tonight! For an hour, Irishman and Civil War Brigadier General Thomas Meagher came to life, many thanks to Gary Randolph Storyteller."

"I loved watching the rapt attention as you spun the story of the fairy shawl."

"What a gift you have for distilling history into compelling stories."
"I have referred Gary to two different schools. Both have very much enjoyed his visits, stories, and songs. It is such a wonderful way for children to learn history and all kids (young and old) love stories. Gary memorizes his stories and provides a dramatic telling which keeps audiences engaged."


The Importance of Being Pelham

The Importance of Being Pelham
Pelham & Blandings Book 2

How could things have ever come to this? Pelham G. Totleigh, the hapless hero of The Importance of Being Pelham, was given what was supposed to be a simple mission. His Aunt Agutha, the governor of the Sonus moon colony, sent him back to the Haplor home world to have an ore sample analyzed, a sample crucial to the future of their terraforming settlement. But when Pelham loses the sample, he can only imagine what Aunt Agutha will say … or yell. Meanwhile, Pelham’s friend Binky has problems of his own and asks for his help. All Pelham has to do is impersonate Binky during an interview with a journalist. But things soon spin hilariously out of control. Relying on his faithful valet Blandings for support, guidance, and the occasional excellent cup of tea, Pelham must recover the ore sample, solve a riddle, find a valuable piece of jewelry, face off against monstrous velocichickens, and navigate a cast of quirky characters. And are any of them really who they say they are?

"I loved this one — great story!"

"Very reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse, one of my favorite authors but has that extra intergalactic spice to it."
