And now, demonic shadow creatures are possessing the spirits of dreamers and using their bodies to enter the Waking World. Jonas can no longer avoid his destiny.

At age twenty, Thomas Dekker was already earning €100,000 a year-as an amateur bike racer. The next year, he turned pro and his salary quadrupled then rose again to €900,000 as he established his position as a super-domestique among Europe's wealthiest superteams. The sport world marveled at Dekker's rise as the young racer set his ambitions on capturing cycling's biggest prizes for himself. Before long, though, Dekker found himself corrupted by money, dazzled by fame, and cracking under the relentless pressure to perform at a superhuman level.

And Dekker is not alone; he names those who fell with him and those who aided in his downfall. In Descent, we take an unflinching look at the European peloton as it roars through its modern boom years-the height of the EPO era-and what we see is shocking. You won't be able to turn away from this compelling book about one man's rise, fall, and redemption and what his story reveals about professional sports.

Nicotine Audiobook

Nicotine

Author: Gregor Hens Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: May 2017

Written with the passion of an obsessive, Nicotine addresses a lifelong addiction, from the thrill of the first drag to the perennial last last cigarette. Reflecting on his experiences as a smoker from a young age, Gregor Hens investigates the irreversible effects of nicotine on thought and patterns of behavior. He extends the conversation with other smokers to meditations on Mark Twain and Italo Svevo, the nature of habit, and the validity of hypnosis. With comic insight and meticulous precision, Hens deconstructs every facet of dependency, offering a brilliant analysis of the psychopathology of addiction. This is a book about the physical, emotional, and psychological power of nicotine as not only an addictive drug, but also a gateway to memory, a long trail of streetlights in the rearview mirror of a smoker's life. Cigarettes are sometimes a solace, sometimes a weakness, but always a witness and companion. This is a meditation, an ode, and a eulogy, one that will be passed hand-to-hand between close friends.

Shtum: A Novel

Author: Jem Lester Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: May 2017

Funny and heartbreaking in equal measure, the impassioned debut novel about fathers, sons, and autism In this darkly funny and emotive debut, Ben Jewell has hit a breaking point. His profoundly autistic ten-year-old son Jonah has never spoken, and Ben and his wife, Emma, are struggling to cope. When Ben and Emma fake a separation?a strategic yet ill-advised decision to further Jonah's case in an upcoming tribunal to determine the future of his education?father and son are forced to move in with Georg, Ben's elderly and cantankerous father. In a small house in north London, three generations of men?one who can't talk; two who won't?are thrown together. As Ben confronts single fatherhood, he must battle a string of well-meaning social workers and his own demons to advocate for his son, learning some harsh lessons about accountability from his own father along the way. As the tribunal draws near, Jonah, blissful in his innocence, becomes the prism through which all the complicated strands of personal identity, family history, and misunderstanding are finally untangled. This fiercely funny debut examines the complexities of family and human emotion and gives profound insight into an often-misunderstood disorder.

To Fight Against This Age: On Fascism and Humanism Audiobook

To Fight Against This Age: On Fascism and Humanism

Author: Rob Riemen Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: January 2018

In "The Eternal Return of Fascism," Rob Riemen explores the theoretical weakness of fascism, which depends on a politics of resentment, the incitement of anger and fear, xenophobia, the need for scapegoats, and its hatred of the life of the mind. He draws on history and philosophy as well as the essays and novels of Thomas Mann and Albert Camus to explain the global resurgence of fascism, often disguised by its false promises of ushering in freedom and greatness. Riemen's own response to what he sees as the spiritual crisis of our age is articulated in "The Return of Europa," a moving story about the meaning of European humanism with its universal values of truth, beauty, justice, and love for life?values that are the origin and basis of a democratic civilization. To Fight Against This Age is as timely as it is timeless, to be read by those who want to understand and change the world in which they live.
