Brave New World Audiobook

Brave New World

Author: Aldous Huxley Narrator: Geoffrey Giuliano And The Icon Players Release Date: August 2021

Brave New World is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English author Aldous Huxley, written in 1931 and published a year later. Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society that is challenged by only a single individual: the story's protagonist. Huxley followed this book with a reassessment in essay form, Brave New World Revisited (1958), and with his final novel, Island (1962), the utopian counterpart. The novel is often compared to George Orwell's 1884. Brave New World has frequently been banned and challenged since its original publication. It has landed on the American Library Association list of top 100 banned and challenged books of the decade since the association began the list in 1990. Author Aldous Huxley was an English writer and philosopher. He wrote nearly fifty books, both novels and non-fiction works—as well as wide-ranging essays, narratives, and poems. Born into the prominent Huxley family, he graduated from Oxford, with an undergraduate degree in English literature. Early in his career, he published short stories and poetry and edited the literary magazine Oxford Poetry, before going on to publish travel writing, satire, and screenplays. Huxley spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the foremost intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature nine times and was elected Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature in 1962. Also includes several ultra-rare previously unheard conversations with the esteemed intellectual. Produced by Macc Kay Production executive Avalon Giuliano

Ecochondriacs: The No Quarter November Novel Audiobook

Ecochondriacs: The No Quarter November Novel

Author: Douglas Wilson Narrator: Douglas Wilson Release Date: July 2021

It's election season—America's most lucrative sport—and there are no rules. When climate scientist Dr. Helen Gardner accidentally reads an email from the International Task Force on Climate Change which proves that global warming is a lucrative scam, she's shocked and horrified. But that's nothing compared to how she feels the next day when her boss (the head of the Task Force) tries to have her killed. Helen goes into hiding with the help of her neighbor, a 'fundy' Bible college professor named Cody, and an anti-eco-activist lumberjack-writer. But Helen's scandal isn't the only headline floating to the surface: the Democrat presidential candidate gets career-changing news; his running mate hits rock bottom after years of infidelity; the current Republican VP's past sins won't stay hidden forever. And Cody is about to uncover some dirt of his own.

The Gospel of Lucifer: A Novel for Our Times Audiobook

The Gospel of Lucifer: A Novel for Our Times

Author: Brian Allan Skinner Narrator: Brian Allan Skinner Release Date: July 2021

Lucifer, to escape the cold of a northern New Mexico winter, steps into an old adobe church, intruding on a baptism. By insinuating himself into the boy’s and sponsors’ lives, Dr. Luke Ferrer becomes Adám’s tutor, though it is unclear whose education is being undertaken. The Prince of Darkness, intent on instructing a new race of human beings loyal to him, is confounded to learn that his protégé “does not like girls in that way.” Adam likes boys, especially his 'mejor amigo.' This is but the first of many challenges and obstacles Lucifer must face and overcome. Adam and Iver join an age-old underground organization whose goals are directly opposed to those espoused by Lucifer. Though the boyhood chums accede nothing to him, Lucifer does not abandon hope that he will one day win them over to his side. During a cross-country trip in the friends’ rusty Outback, the devil disguises himself as a mouse and other creatures in order to spy on them and learn what he can about the rebel group The Not Named. Replete with humor and insight, 'The Gospel of Lucifer' encourages us to face our shadows and acknowledge those aspects of ourselves we would rather banish.

How the Dead Dream Audiobook

How the Dead Dream

Author: Lydia Millet Narrator: Michael Brusasco Release Date: July 2021

As a wealthy, young real-estate developer in Los Angeles, T. lives an isolated life. He has always kept his distance from people-from his doting mother to his crass fraternity brothers-but remains unaware of his loneliness until one night, while driving to Las Vegas, he hits a coyote on the highway. The experience unnerves him and inspires a transformation that leads him to question his business pursuits for the first time in his life, to take a chance at falling in love, and to begin breaking into zoos across the country, where he finds solace in the presence of animals on the brink of extinction. A beautiful, heart-wrenching tale, How the Dead Dream is also a riveting commentary on individualism and community in the modern social landscape and how the lives of people and animals are deeply entwined. Judged by many-including the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post Book World-to be Lydia Millet's best work to date, it is, as Time Out New York perfectly states, This beautiful writer's most ambitious novel yet, a captivating balancing act between full-bodied satire and bighearted insight.

Paperback Hell: Series 1-3: A BBC Radio Spoof comedy Audiobook

Paperback Hell: Series 1-3: A BBC Radio Spoof comedy

All three series of the literary spoof series Paperback Hell takes a wry look at well-known genres riding high in the publishing charts, and mercilessly lampoons them to hilarious effect. Featuring choice chapters culled from titles that bear a striking resemblance to something you've read before, it's the book show that seems determined to destroy the good name of literature. These 16 episodes showcase a selection of inexplicably popular bestsellers by imaginary authors, including Romany Cleff's debut chick-lit novel Shopping for Mr Wrong; Edith Plunger's medieval monastic murder mystery A Posset Full of Death; radical filmaker Chuck Morris's account of his trip to the Hay and Wye literary festival, You Suck Bush; and Jack 'Sunglasses' Ramsey's not-entirely-true memoir of life in the 1960s criminal underworld, Stop the Dodgems, I Want to Throw Up. Plus, the Napoleonic Wars invade the airwaves as suspiciously fictional author Alexander Cromwell narrates his military adventure, Thrust's Eagle; celebrity lifestyle gurus Gilly Haberdasher and Dr Graham Golden share excerpts from their tie-in book to the hit TV programme, How Not To Live; and there's a chance to experience a young woman's erotic awakening as 'Anonymous' reads from a specially adapted version of Forbidden Fire (which contains sex scenes that some listeners may find strangely disappointing). Written by Danny Robins and Dan Tetsell (The Museum of Everything, Young Dracula), this witty, entertaining send-up stars Michael Fenton Stevens, Rebecca Front, Mel Hudson, Alex Lowe and Dan Tetsell. Production credits Ghostwritten by Danny Robins and Dan Tetsell Produced by Lucy Armitage Original music by Ben Walker Starring Michael Fenton Stevens, Rebecca Front, Mel Hudson, Alex Lowe and Dan Tetsell With Michael Brandon (Series 3, Episodes 1 and 2) First broadcast on BBC Radio 4, 16 January-6 February 2003 (Series 1), 7 July-11 August 2004 (Series 2), 5 October-9 November 2005 (Series 3) ©2021 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd (P)2021 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd

Evangellyfish: A Novel Audiobook

Evangellyfish: A Novel

Author: Douglas Wilson Narrator: Douglas Wilson Release Date: May 2021

Evangellyfish is a ruthless, grimly amused, and above all honest look at one of the darkest corners in the western world. Douglas Wilson, a pastor of more than thirty years, paints a vivid and painful picture of evangelical boomchurch leadership. . . in bed. Chad Lester's kingdom is found in the Midwest. His voice crawls over the airwaves, his books are read by millions (before he reads them), and thousands ride the escalators into the sanctuary every Sunday. And Saturday. And Wednesday, too. He is the head pastor of Camel Creek -- a CEO of Soul. And souls come cheap, so he has no overhead. When Lester is (falsely) accused of molesting a young male counselee, his universe begins to crumble. He is a sexual predator, yes. But strictly straight (and deeply offended that anyone would suggest otherwise). Detectives, reporters, assistant pastors, and old lovers and pay-offs all come out to play. John Mitchell is also a pastor, but he has no kingdom to speak of -- only smalltime choir feuds. He is thrilled at the great man's fall, but his joy quickly fades when the imploding Lester calls him -- and a lover or two -- for help. How low can grace go? Whores, thieves, and junkies, sure. But pastors?

The Speed of Souls: A Novel for Dog Lovers Audiobook

The Speed of Souls: A Novel for Dog Lovers

Author: Nick Pirog Narrator: Carla Mercer-Meyer, Gabriel Vaughan Release Date: May 2021

Hugo was a dog. He died. Now he's a kitten. As Hugo adjusts to his new body (not just a cat-a baby cat!), his new home (San Francisco), his new outside (Where are the mountains? Where is the lake?), and his sudden urge to sit in every box he sees, he wonders if he'll ever see Cassie or Jerry again. Back in Lake Tahoe, Cassie and Jerry attempt to come to grips with life without Hugo. Cassie fills the void with 'Tadpole Guard,' 'Worm Patrol,' and ups her protection of Jerry (her human), who is in the midst of a cataclysmic midlife crisis. In addition to his dog dying, Jerry's last two books have been monumental flops, and he's still reeling from his fiancee leaving him for another man. As if these problems aren't enough, his parents (who have become late-stage hippies) are coming to live with him for the entire summer. And so begins the journey of three souls, intertwined by love, loss, and perhaps something even greater. Told with Nick Pirog's charm and razor sharp wit, The Speed of Souls is at once a hilarious, moving, and transcendent work of storytelling.

A Modest Proposal Audiobook

A Modest Proposal

Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: John Gonzalez Release Date: May 2021

A Modest Proposal is a Juvenalian satirical essay written and published anonymously by Jonathan Swift. Swift suggests that the impoverished Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling their children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies. This satirical hyperbole mocked heartless attitudes towards the poor, as well as British policy toward the Irish in general. In English writing, the phrase 'a modest proposal' is now conventionally an allusion to this style of straight-faced satire. Swift goes to great lengths to support his argument, including a list of possible preparation styles for the children, and calculations showing the financial benefits of his suggestion. He uses methods of argument throughout his essay which lampoon the then-influential William Petty and the social engineering popular among followers of Francis Bacon. These lampoons include appealing to the authority of 'a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London' and 'the famous Psalmanazar, a native of the island Formosa' (who had already confessed to not being from Formosa in 1706). As part of our mission to publish great works of literary fiction and nonfiction, Sheba Blake Publishing Corp. is extremely dedicated to bringing to the forefront the amazing works of long dead and truly talented authors.

Dead End Drive Audiobook

Dead End Drive

Author: Ian Kirkpatrick Narrator: Kieran Regan Release Date: April 2021

In this transgressive, satire-laced debut, a fourteen-year-old boy inherits his family home and the hatred of all those around him as they seek to seize the inheritance from his cold, dead hands. When Agatha Benedict plucked Kelly off the city streets to replace her dead cat Poopsie, she neglected to inform him of some very important house traditions. The history of the Benedict Estate prescribes that once the estate owner passes on, a will reading is to take place. However, the reading is more than passing on a loved one's final wishes; it's a figurative gunshot into the air, an alert to all in attendance that a playful game of anything goes murder has begun. The prize? The inheritance, of course. As if visiting, a storm comes in with the guests, trapping everyone on the property for the night. While Kelly plays catch-up on with house rules, once friendly family members have already sharpened their knives. Try as he might, there is no survival if he won't play by the same rules as everyone else. A uniquely funny and dark murder party with big personalities. A coming-of-age story if growing up felt like being stabbed in the back by everyone you hold dear. As suspenseful as Agatha Christie's And then There Were None, as bitterly sardonic as American Psycho, and as slapstick as Clue, Dead End Drive is a black comedy and satirical look into the world of nihilism and the rat race of life we all see, but pretend we don't because... Let's be honest: is there anything more valuable than having every last need met for life?
