Time is a Fine White Lie: Postmodern Musings Audiobook

Time is a Fine White Lie: Postmodern Musings

An Australian shamaness traveling in the body of a Chicago bartender leads to a surreal rendezvous with a presumed-dead rock star. An OkCupid encounter turns into blissful madness when souls connect over a national tragedy. A bloody accident at a city bus stop gives way to an absurdly rewarding feast. This collection of seven short stories poses the question: What phenomena are occurring under our nose, right now, that appear completely random but are consistent and solid periodic events we simply lack the scope to see, the comprehension to grasp, or the vocabulary to name? Time is a Fine White Lie may be the closest thing we have to a traveler’s journal from that latent, ephemeral possibility—at once a tribute, warning, antidote, and gateway—to that which we take for granted.

The Essential Guide to Bigfoot Audiobook

The Essential Guide to Bigfoot

Author: Ken Gerhard Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: July 2020

Throughout North America, there is an enduring legend that describes a race of giant, hairy ape-men said to inhabit the remotest forests and mountains. Yet, could such things really exist? Ken Gerhard is a widely recognized cryptozoologist who has traveled the world searching for evidence of mysterious animals including Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, el Chupacabra, the Beast of Gevaudan, as well as enigmatic winged creatures. In this essential primer, Gerhard presents the most accurate and indispensable information that's been gathered with regard to the Bigfoot phenomenon-the best evidence supporting its existence, consensus expert opinions up to this point, the most compelling encounters and really everything you need to know about the subject in order to become Sasquatch savvy. The listener will get answers to questions such as-Do they really exist? What are they? What do they look like? How many are there? Are they dangerous? Where are the remains? In addition, Gerhard discusses his own expeditions, findings and opinions. Finally, Ken makes an argument that there may be a distinct, pygmy version, which he refers to as 'Littlefoot,' and which may be connected to other worldwide man-beasts, including the Yeti.

Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes: Honor and Shame in Paul's Message and Mission Audiobook

Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes: Honor and Shame in Paul's Message and Mission

Author: Jackson Wu Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: June 2020

What does it mean to 'read Romans with Eastern eyes'? Combining research from Asian scholars with his many years of experience living and working in East Asia, Jackson directs our attention to Paul's letter to the Romans. He argues that some traditional East Asian cultural values are closer to those of the first-century biblical world than common Western cultural values. In addition, he adds his voice to the scholarship engaging the values of honor and shame in particular and their influence on biblical interpretation. As readers, we bring our own cultural fluencies and values to the text. Our biases and backgrounds influence what we observe-and what we overlook. This book helps us consider ways we sometimes miss valuable insights because of widespread cultural blind spots. In Reading Romans with Eastern Eyes, Jackson demonstrates how paying attention to East Asian culture provides a helpful lens for interpreting Paul's most complex letter. When read this way, we see how honor and shame shape so much of Paul's message and mission.

Winds of Wrath

Author: Taylor Anderson Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: June 2020

Matt Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker are positioned to push the line of battle to the breaking point on an alternate Earth, in the thrilling return to the New York Times bestselling Destroyermen series. Matt Reddy and his sailors have fought, bled, and died for their Lemurian friends and other allies from across time, but their enemies are still operational. In Africa, the Grik General Esshk has escaped defeat to build a new army and new weapons, and is desperate enough to use them to destroy the world if he can't have it. In South America, the NUS, General Shinya, and the Army of the Sisters have the evil Dominion on the ropes and are closing in on the seat of its blood-drenched power, but the twisted Don Hernan has struck a deal with the fascist League, and Victor Gravois is finally assembling the awesome fleet of modern ships he's always craved. If he's successful, the war will be lost. Undermined by treachery on a stunning scale, Matt Reddy must still steam his battered old ship halfway around the world, scraping up what forces he can along the way, and confront the mightiest armada the world has ever seen in a fiery duel to the death.

Grantville Gazette, Volume V Audiobook

Grantville Gazette, Volume V

Author: Eric Flint Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: June 2020

When an inexplicable cosmic disturbance hurls your town from twentieth century West Virginia back to seventeenth century Europe-and into the middle of the Thirty Years War-you'd better be adaptable to survive. And the natives of that time period, faced with American technology and politics, need to be equally adaptable. In other stories: ● Cardinal Richelieu, France's insidious master plotter and power behind the throne, learns of his prominent role in Dumas' not-yet-written novel The Three Musketeers (not to mention the several movie versions), and starts a search for the 'real' D'Artagnan. ● Grantville is selling crystal radio sets so that Europeans can tune in to the Voice of America broadcasts, but the technicians from the future are at wit's end, trying to reproduce 'primitive' early twentieth century broadcasting equipment by trial and error-until a trained library researcher shows up in town. ● Wilhelm Krieger, one of Germany's greatest philosophers, comes to Grantville to learn the philosophy of the future-and meets a contrarian cracker-barrel philosopher. Contains mature themes.

AI Narratives: A History of Imaginative Thinking about Intelligent Machines Audiobook

AI Narratives: A History of Imaginative Thinking about Intelligent Machines

Author: Kanta Dihal, Sarah Dillon, Stephen Cave Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: May 2020

This book is the first to examine the history of imaginative thinking about intelligent machines. As real Artificial Intelligence (AI) begins to touch on all aspects of our lives, this long narrative history shapes how the technology is developed, deployed, and regulated. It is therefore a crucial social and ethical issue. Part I of this book provides a historical overview from ancient Greece to the start of modernity. These chapters explore the revealing pre-history of key concerns of contemporary AI discourse, from the nature of mind and creativity to issues of power and rights, from the tension between fascination and ambivalence to investigations into artificial voices and technophobia. Part II focuses on the twentieth and twenty-first-centuries in which a greater density of narratives emerge alongside rapid developments in AI technology. These chapters reveal not only how AI narratives have consistently been entangled with the emergence of real robotics and AI, but also how they offer a rich source of insight into how we might live with these revolutionary machines. The contributions, from leading humanities and social science scholars, show that narratives about AI offer a crucial epistemic site for exploring contemporary debates about these powerful new technologies.

Grantville Gazette, Volume IV Audiobook

Grantville Gazette, Volume IV

Author: Eric Flint Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: May 2020

In Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff's 'Poor Little Rich Girls,' we follow the continuing adventures of the teenage tycoons begun by Huff in 'The Sewing Circle' (Gazette #1) and 'Other People's Money' (Gazette #3). The focus in this story, however, is on the younger siblings-the so-called Barbie Consortium-and their down-timer associates and enemies. Jose Clavell's 'Magdeburg Marines' and Ernest Lutz and John Zeek's 'Elizabeth' depict the early days of two military units after the Ring of Fire: a reborn US Marine Corps trying to adapt to new circumstances, and the First Railway Company, formed to provide logistics using a combination of up-time and down-time methods and technology. David Carrico's 'Heavy Metal Music' continues the story of the interaction between up-time and down-time musicians that he began in last issue's 'The Sound of Music.' In other stories: ● A German craftsman blackballed by guild masters gets a new start in Karen Bergstralh's 'One Man's Junk.' ● Grantville has to deal with the tragic accidental deaths of several high school graduates in Kerryn Offord's 'The Class of '34.' Contains mature themes.

Raphael, Painter in Rome: A Novel Audiobook

Raphael, Painter in Rome: A Novel

Author: Stephanie Storey Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: April 2020

Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling is one of the most iconic masterpieces of the Renaissance. Here, in Raphael, Painter in Rome, Storey tells of its creation as never before: through the eyes of Michelangelo's fiercest rival-the young, beautiful, brilliant painter of perfection, Raphael. Orphaned at age eleven, Raphael is determined to keep the deathbed promise he made to his father: become the greatest artist in history. But to be the best, he must beat the best, the legendary sculptor of the David, Michelangelo Buonarroti. When Pope Julius II calls both artists down to Rome, they are pitted against each other: Michelangelo painting the Sistine Ceiling, while Raphael decorates the pope's private apartments. As Raphael strives toward perfection in paint, he battles internal demons: his desperate ambition, crippling fear of imperfection, and unshakable loneliness. Along the way, he conspires with cardinals, scrambles through the ruins of ancient Rome, and falls in love with a baker's-daughter-turned-prostitute who becomes his muse. With its gorgeous writing, rich settings, endearing characters, and riveting plot, Raphael, Painter in Rome brings to vivid life these two Renaissance masters going head to head in the deadly halls of the Vatican.

How to Be a Bad Emperor: An Ancient Guide to Truly Terrible Leaders Audiobook

How to Be a Bad Emperor: An Ancient Guide to Truly Terrible Leaders

Author: Suetonius Narrator: P.J. Ochlan Release Date: March 2020

If recent history has taught us anything, it's that sometimes the best guide to leadership is the negative example. But that insight is hardly new. Nearly 2,000 years ago, Suetonius wrote Lives of the Caesars, perhaps the greatest negative leadership book of all time. He was ideally suited to write about terrible political leaders; after all, he was also the author of Famous Prostitutes and Words of Insult, both sadly lost. In How to Be a Bad Emperor, Josiah Osgood provides crisp new translations of Suetonius's briskly paced, darkly comic biographies of the Roman emperors Julius Caesar, Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero. Entertaining and shocking, the stories of these ancient anti-role models show how power inflames leaders' worst tendencies, causing almost incalculable damage. How to Be a Bad Emperor is both a gleeful romp through some of the nastiest bits of Roman history and a perceptive account of leadership gone monstrously awry. We meet Caesar, using his aunt's funeral to brag about his descent from gods and kings-and hiding his bald head with a comb-over and a laurel crown; Tiberius, neglecting public affairs in favor of wine, perverse sex, tortures, and executions; the insomniac sadist Caligula, flaunting his skill at cruel put-downs; and the matricidal Nero, indulging his mania for public performance.
