The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Author: L. Frank Baum Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: May 2021

Back in 1900 author L. Frank Baum says he wrote The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to please children of his time.

He pointed out that youngsters have long had a love of fantastic stories, but times change and they look forward more to entertainment that still has the wonderment and joy of time gone by. His fantastic creation of "Oz" provides exactly that.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Author: Lewis Carroll Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: May 2021

One of America's best-known stories in all of literature began with the imagination-stretching tale of probably the most famous little girl in English literature. Alice was a character surrounded by exotic caricatures with "nonsense" seeming to be a reasonable description. But, even the story's fictional Queen of Hearts said, "Every joke should have a meaning." In an oblique manner, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland provided just that, prompting one comment, "These are not stories for children, but are the only books in which all of us become children." That is sufficient to invite you to follow us and "Alice" down the infamous "rabbit hole."

Author: Edgar Allan Poe Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: May 2021

Just who was Edgar Allan Poe? Of course he was an author, but there were parts of his life that were shrouded in mystery, like many of his stories. The differences between fact and fiction were intermingled and became even more so after his death. Readers around the world had their imaginations stimulated by his tales of mystery and sometimes horror. He was able to arouse emotions by making implausible subjects and events into believable happenings. That ability made them into literary classics. Affairs of his real life sometimes echoed the frequent bizarre viewpoints that he brought to startling life in his manuscripts. This audiobook features two of his horror variety tales, "The Fall of the House of Usher" and "The Tell-Tale Heart," as well as two of his more famous poems, "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee."

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: A Collection of Short Stories Audiobook

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: A Collection of Short Stories

Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: May 2021

The description "consulting detective" was often a reference to Sherlock Holmes, but that was inadequate to tell about his unusual characteristics. He was a loner who preferred to keep to himself and kept many secrets from others, including the few friends he had. Holmes did have a constant professional relationship with Dr. Watson, and it was the faithful Watson who once said, "I had no idea that such personalities exist outside of stories." The two followed trails of a wide range of criminals throughout London, southern England, and continental Europe with solutions based on the Holmes intuition as often as not. Join us for the beginning of a series of fascinating stories about a fascinating character.

The Red House Mystery Audiobook

The Red House Mystery

Author: A. A. Milne Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: July 2021

The author's birth name was Alan Alexander Milne, but his pen name used only the initials A. A. Milne. He eventually won worldwide acclaim for his renowned youth-oriented stories about Winnie-the-Pooh. However, he tried something different a few years before that, a story based on parental devotion. He explained his reason for that in his preface: TO JOHN VINE MILNE, my dear Father, Like all really nice people, you have a weakness for detective stories, and feel that there are not enough of them. So, after all that you have done for me, the least that I can do for you is to write you one. Here it is, with more gratitude and affection than I can well put down here. -Alan How's that for an introduction to a "whodunit"? Just listen to what he wrote.

The House without a Key: A Charlie Chan Mystery Audiobook

The House without a Key: A Charlie Chan Mystery

Author: Earl Derr Biggers Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: July 2021

The sublime beauty of Hawaii nearly a century ago is captured in this first book featuring the fictional Honolulu police detective, Charlie Chan. Author Biggers was staying at a hotel on Waikiki Beach in the 1920s when he was inspired to write the book. The Chan role at first was relatively minor, and he didn't say anything until several chapters had gone by. However, the concept caught on when the literary public wanted more of him. That prompted five subsequent books as the character became more prominent. Altogether, Chan developed into a personality that fascinated mystery fans of all eras. In addition to the print episodes, more than four dozen successful movies eventually followed in the 1930s and 1940s. The overall idea is a pleasure to read, or to hear, as we invite you now to listen to this novel that established a completely new pattern for mysteries.

The Great Impersonation Audiobook

The Great Impersonation

Author: E. Phillips Oppenheim Narrator: John Rayburn Release Date: August 2021

This is a classic novel of espionage and sinister intrigue that are also connected with an unexpected intrusion of irresistible romance. Written in 1920, it deals with elements of WWI that tell of saboteurs having infiltrated England. A German advocate of the Kaiser discovers he is a facial/physical match for young Englishman Everard Dominey, who is near death after harrowing experiences in Africa. The remarkable doppelgänger resemblance leads Major-General Baron Leopold Von Ragastein to infiltrate the UK in perfect disguise. He wants to lead his country's efforts as Europe is racing toward war. Part of the plan is to murder Dominey and have the Baron take his place in English society. The Oppenheim tale of escapism and subterfuge becomes more baffling when the listener follows the story without knowing whether Leopold is posing as Everard or not. The convoluted plot makes it one of the most entertaining spy novels. Listen now and learn about the planned impersonation.
