This Ain’t No Holiday Inn: Down and Out at the Chelsea Hotel, 1980–1995; An Oral History Audiobook

This Ain’t No Holiday Inn: Down and Out at the Chelsea Hotel, 1980–1995; An Oral History

During its heyday, the Chelsea Hotel in New York City was a home and safe haven for Bohemian artists, poets, and musicians such as Bob Dylan, Gregory Corso, Allen Ginsberg, Janis Joplin, and Dee Dee Ramone. This oral history of the famed hotel peers behind the iconic façade and delves into the mayhem, madness, and brilliance that stemmed from the hotel in the 1980s and 1990s. Providing a window into the late Bohemia of New York during that time, countless interviews, and firsthand accounts adorn this social history of one of the most celebrated and culturally significant landmarks in New York City.

See what happens to America when the country refuses to surrender their forces in the Middle East and capitulate to the Caliphate’s demands.

Will China look to technology to increase their food production or decide to incorporate the rest of Asia into a Greater Chinese nation? With Russia having successfully taken back their former Soviet Republics, will they finally destroy NATO and incorporate the European Union into the ever expanding Russian Federation? This gripping political and military thriller looks at the potential future of 2041, the coming clash of civilizations, the rise of new superpowers, and the decline of the West.

A Prelude to World War III Audiobook

A Prelude to World War III

Author: James Rosone & Miranda Watson Narrator: Alex Hyde-White Release Date: May 2020

In the not-too-distant future, the United States loses its status as a world Superpower. With the military cut to a barebones level and American leaders focused solely on the nation's internal struggles, the door will open for new powers to emerge on the world stage. In the wake of this power vacuum, China and Russia begin to flex their military muscles and expand their dominance in the world. They have the most up-to-date technological innovations ready for battle: railguns, unmanned drone tank vehicles, exoskeleton suits, and cyber warfare. Setting the Stage: The border of India and Pakistan has long been one of the planet's most precarious ticking time bombs waiting to explode, and when a scheme to agitate the tensions in that region is successful, it paves the way for powerful men to begin consolidating authority and start building an Islamic Caliphate. Extremists move from random attacks of violence to plots to take control of positions of political influence. America's usual ally against aggression, Europe, is weakened by economic decline; the U.S is facing this new threat without backup. In these hazardous times, America will need strong guidance. Henry Stein, a new kind of leader, builds a new political party to lead the charge to bring the country back from the brink. His unconventional style is just what the U.S. needs in order to deal with the changing world balance of power and a worldwide Great Depression. As conflicts near and far began to plague the planet, will President Stein be able to prevent a third world war?

Ending Parkinson's Disease: A Prescription for Action Audiobook

Ending Parkinson's Disease: A Prescription for Action

Author: Bastiaan R. Bloem, Michael S. Okun, Ray Dorsey, Todd Sherer Narrator: Alex Hyde-White Release Date: March 2020

In this 'must-read' guide (Lonnie Ali), four leading doctors and advocates offer a bold action plan to prevent, care for, and treat Parkinson's disease-one of the great health challenges of our time. Brain diseases are now the world's leading source of disability. The fastest growing of these is Parkinson's: the number of impacted patients has doubled to more than six million over the last twenty-five years and is projected to double again by 2040. Harmful pesticides that increase the risk of Parkinson's continue to proliferate, many people remain undiagnosed and untreated, research funding stagnates, and the most effective treatment is now a half century old. In Ending Parkinson's Disease, four top experts provide a plan to help prevent Parkinson's, improve care and treatment, and end the silence associated with this devastating disease.

The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: The Greatest Detective Stories: 1837–1914 Audiobook

The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: The Greatest Detective Stories: 1837–1914

This masterful collection of seventeen classic mystery stories, dating from 1837 to 1914, traces the earliest history of popular detective fiction. Today, the figure of Sherlock Holmes towers over detective fiction like a colossus―but it was not always so. Edgar Allan Poe’s French detective Dupin, the hero of “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” preceded Holmes’s deductive reasoning by more than forty years with his “tales of ratiocination.” In A Study in Scarlet, the first of Holmes’ adventures, Doyle acknowledged his debt to Poe―and to Émile Gaboriau, whose thief-turned-detective Monsieur Lecoq debuted in France twenty years earlier. If “Rue Morgue” was the first true detective story in English, the title of the first full-length detective novel is more hotly contested. Two books by Wilkie Collins―The Woman in White (1859) and The Moonstone (1868)―are often given that honor, with the latter showing many of the features that came to identify the genre: a locked-room murder in an English country house; bungling local detectives outmatched by a brilliant amateur detective; a large cast of suspects and a plethora of red herrings; and a final twist before the truth is revealed. Others point to Mary Elizabeth Braddon’s The Trail of the Serpent (1861) or Aurora Floyd (1862), and others still to The Notting Hill Mystery (1862–3) by the pseudonymous “Charles Felix.” As the early years of detective fiction gave way to two separate golden ages―of hard-boiled tales in America and intricately-plotted, so-called “cozy” murders in Britain―the legacy of Sherlock Holmes, with his fierce devotion to science and logic, gave way to street smarts on the one hand and social insight on the other―but even though these new sub-genres went their own ways, their detectives still required the intelligence and clear-sightedness that characterized the earliest works of detective fiction: the trademarks of Sherlock Holmes, and of all the detectives featured here.

Saint X Audiobook

Saint X

Claire is only seven years old when her college-age sister Alison vanishes from the luxury resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X on the last night of her family’s vacation. Several days later Alison’s naked body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay, and two local men, employees at the resort, are arrested. But the evidence is slim, the timeline against it, and the men are soon released. It’s national tabloid news, a lurid mystery that will go unsolved, but for Claire’s family there is only the sad return home to broken lives. Years later, riding in a New York City taxicab, Claire recognizes the name on the cabbie’s licence, Clive Richardson – her driver is one of the men originally suspected of murdering her sister. The fateful encounter sets her on an obsessive pursuit of the truth, not only what happened on the night of Alison’s death, but the no less elusive question of exactly who was this sister she was barely old enough to know: a beautiful, changeable, provocative girl of eighteen at a turbulent moment of identity formation. As Claire doggedly shadows Clive, hoping to gain his trust, waiting for the slip that will uncover the truth, an unlikely intimacy develops between them, two people whose lives were forever marked by a tragedy. Alexis Schaitkin's Saint X is a flawlessly drawn and deeply moving story that hurtles to a devastating end.

The Mummy!: A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century Audiobook

The Mummy!: A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century

Published anonymously in three volumes in 1827, when the author was only seventeen years old, The Mummy! is, as she describes it herself, a strange, wild novel that-to an audience nearer her future than when Loudon imagined it-is filled with striking similarities to our modern world, including a form of the internet. But it is also filled with brilliant flights of fancy: her court ladies wear hair ornaments of controlled flame; surgeons and lawyers may be steam-powered automatons; people holiday by moving their entire home on rails. The visionary technological setting contrasts with a morality seemingly gone awry as it falls to the reanimated mummy Cheops to try to find a role in this corrupted society. A lost curio of Victorian futurism waiting to be discovered, The Mummy! is as bizarre and entertaining as its premise promises-and more. Its present-day appeal to fans of steampunk and Victorian settings is undeniable. This full-cast Skyboat Media production, adapted, produced, and directed by Gabrielle De Cuir, is the perfect vehicle to fully exploit Loudon's sophisticated visionary narrative, and bolster it with scenes of vivid character dialogue.

Fight for Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump Audiobook

Fight for Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump

Anne Applebaum, Garry Kasparov, Richard North Patterson, and a constellation of other thinkers make the urgent case for liberal democracy reinvigorating its central values in an age of doubt and discord. Liberal democracy is in crisis around the world, besieged by authoritarianism, nationalism, and other illiberal forces. Far-right parties are gaining traction in Europe, Vladimir Putin tightens his grip on Russia and undermines democracy abroad, and America struggles with poisonous threats from the right and left. But the defenders of democracy are strong too. Taking their cues from the 1788 Federalist Papers, the Renew Democracy Initiative is a collective of pro-democracy advocates from across the political spectrum, including Anne Applebaum, Garry Kasparov, Max Boot, Bret Stephens, Ted Koppel, and Natan Sharansky. This book is their foundational document, a collection of essays that analyze the multi-pronged threats to liberal democracy in the U.S. and abroad, and offer solutions based on fundamental democratic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law. Fight for Liberty is a roadmap for the struggle against the rising tide of extremism and a cri de coeur in defense of the liberal world order, which sees itself threatened as never before today.

The Great Democracy: How to Fix Our Politics, Unrig the Economy, and Unite America Audiobook

The Great Democracy: How to Fix Our Politics, Unrig the Economy, and Unite America

Author: Ganesh Sitaraman Narrator: Alex Hyde-White Release Date: December 2019

A leading progressive intellectual offers an 'illuminating' agenda for how real democracy can triumph in America and beyond (Ari Berman, New York Times). Since the New Deal in the 1930s, there have been two eras in our political history: the liberal era, stretching up to the 1970s, followed by the neoliberal era of privatization and austerity ever since. In each period, the dominant ideology was so strong that it united even partisan opponents. But the neoliberal era is collapsing, and the central question of our time is what comes next. As acclaimed legal scholar and policy expert Ganesh Sitaraman argues, two political visions now contend for the future. One is nationalist oligarchy, which rigs the system for the rich and powerful while using nationalism to mobilize support. The other is the great democracy, which fights corruption and extends both political and economic power to all people. At this decisive moment in history, The Great Democracy offers a bold, transformative agenda for achieving real democracy.

Wine Songs, Vinegar Verses: Poems Out of Love Audiobook

Wine Songs, Vinegar Verses: Poems Out of Love

Author: Harambee Grey-Sun Narrator: Alex Hyde-White, Caroline Morahan Release Date: July 2018

Sometimes lovers enter a relationship with the best of intentions but wind up in a place far from love.  Sometimes poets attempt love poems, simple and pure, but . . . Over breakfast, a husband trying to deny creeping out on his wife the previous night can't help but give hints about the creepy things he really did. On a beach, a man minding his own business is accosted by a pretty woman before a strong tide embarrasses them both. A husband and wife debate over what to name a child conceived illicitly. A tone-deaf proposal for marriage ends in murder. A traditionally arranged marriage spins into a deranged and surreal nightmare. These aren't anti-love poems. These are poems born and burned out of love. It's not recommended that a reader attempt the entire book in one sitting. Many of the poems are dense, complex, and may go straight to the head. Best to peruse in small doses, with a preferred drink in hand.
