Notes from Underground Audiobook

Notes from Underground

Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: January 2021

"I am a sick man ... I am a spiteful man," a nameless voice cries out. And so, from underground, emerge the passionate confessions of a suffering man; the painful self-examination of a tormented soul; the bristling scorn of a lonely individual who has become one of the greatest antiheroes in all literature. In 1864, just prior to the years in which he wrote his greatest novels-Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Possessed, and The Brothers Karamazov-Fyodor Dostoevsky penned the darkly fascinating Notes from Underground. Its nameless hero is a profoundly alienated individual in whose brooding self-analysis there is a search for the true and the good in a world of relative values and few absolutes. Moreover, the novel introduces themes-moral, religious, political, and social-that dominated Dostoevsky's later works. Those who are familiar with his works will immediately recognize the novel's richly complex philosophical, political, and psychological themes; those who are not will find the best introduction to Dostoevsky's grander masterpieces.

Two Suns at Sunset Audiobook

Two Suns at Sunset

Author: Gene Doucette Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Paul Boehmer, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: December 2020

Welcome to Dib! Dib is an Earthlike planet, only slightly smaller, with shorter days and longer years, in orbit around twin suns. On the continent of Geo, in the city of Velon in the nation of Inimata, a man lies dead in his study. The Murdered Monk In life, Professor Orno Linus was a world-class scholar: an astrophysicist, a dead-language linguist, and an expert in (and apparent true believer of) the religious concept of the Cull, i.e., the end of the world. Widely respected, nothing about Linus's expertise suggests somebody might want him dead. Professor Linus is also Brother Linus, a high-ranking member of an ancient, powerful religious organization known as the House. This makes his murder much more complicated, but no more explicable, because murder on House grounds just doesn't happen. Not even when one of the last things the victim did was steal something important from the House vault. Finally, Orno is also the younger brother of Calcut Linus, one of the most powerful and criminally dangerous people on the planet. Killing any Linus means incurring the wrath of a man for whom laws very rarely apply. In short, Professor Orno Linus is a highly unlikely murder victim. And yet, somebody killed him. The Cursed Detective Detective Makk Stidgeon already knows he's unlucky. He's a cholem: an outcast. A bad-luck charm. He was born this way, and has the brand on his wrist to prove it. But in terms of bad luck, the gods have really gone overboard by sticking him with the Linus case. Between a House leadership that seems more interested in retrieving their stolen artifact than in solving the murder of one of their own, the demands of the murderous Calcut Linus, a new partner who seems to know more than she's telling, and an omnipresent news media constantly looking for an angle on the biggest story of the year, Makk barely has time to just follow the clues. And that's before an impossible video surfaces that purports to reveal the killer's identity. What makes it impossible? The person in the video couldn't have possibly done it. To get to the bottom of the Orno's murder, Makk will have to navigate between the House and the Linus family, find the source of the video, and figure out what's missing from the House vault. Even if he can pull all that off, he may discover he's not at the end of a mystery at all, but at the beginning of a much larger one. Tandemstar: The Outcast Cycle. The journey begins here.

Weird Women: Classic Supernatural Fiction by Groundbreaking Female Writers, 1852-1923 Audiobook

Weird Women: Classic Supernatural Fiction by Groundbreaking Female Writers, 1852-1923

From two acclaimed experts in the genre, a brand-new volume of supernatural stories showcasing the forgotten female horror writers from 1852-1923 While the nineteen-year-old Mary Shelley may be hailed as the first modern writer of horror, the success of her immortal Frankenstein undoubtedly inspired dozens of female authors who wrote their own evocative, chilling tales. Weird Women, edited by award-winning anthologists Lisa Morton and Leslie S. Klinger, collects some of the finest tales of terror by authors as legendary as Louisa May Alcott, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman, alongside works of writers who were the bestsellers and critical favorites of their time-Marie Corelli, Ellen Glasgow, Charlotte Riddell-and lesser known authors who are deserving of contemporary recognition. As railroads, industry, cities, and technology flourished in the mid-nineteenth century, so did stories exploring the horrors they unleashed. This anthology includes ghost stories and tales of haunted houses, as well as mad scientists, werewolves, ancient curses, mummies, psychological terrors, demonic dimensions, and even weird westerns. Curated by Klinger and Morton with an aim to present work that has languished in the shadows, all of these exceptional supernatural stories are sure to surprise, delight, and frighten today's readers.

Crucible of Time: Part Two of the 'Out of Time' Sequence

Author: Jeffrey A. Carver Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: November 2020

A galaxy in peril... The story begun in The Reefs of Time continues. The time-tides caused by Karellia’s defenses have brought the malicious Mindaru AI out of the deep past into the present, threatening Bandicut and Li-Jared, who have arrived at the backwater planet—Li-Jared’s homeworld—to find it on the brink of interplanetary war. Somehow they must forge a peace between Karellia and its neighboring world if the Mindaru threat is to be broken. Back on Shipworld, Ik and Julie Stone risk their lives a second time to stop the Mindaru at their source: a planet near the galactic core, a billion years in the past. Can Antares, the beautiful humanoid who also loves Bandicut, help them? What of Bria the gokat? And Amaduse, the most influential librarian in Shipworld? And in the deep time of the galaxy’s early history, by the light of a million suns, the Mindaru do hideous things to an innocent species. The Mindaru plan for the altered creatures bears momentous possibilities even the deadly AI cannot predict. Time is critical. Time is elastic. And time is running out. Conclusion of the unmissable two-part “Out of Time” sequence begun in The Reefs of Time, from Jeffrey A. Carver, Nebula-nominated author of Eternity's End. PRAISE FOR THE REEFS OF TIME / CRUCIBLE OF TIME: “Classic science fiction with engaging characters and richly imagined worlds!” —Greg Bear; author of The Unfinished Land and The War Dogs Trilogy “Jeffrey A. Carver’s remarkable long-awaited duology The Reefs of Time / Crucible of Time is a welcome addition to The Chaos Chronicles, certifying his continuing mastery of action and adventure at the boundaries of space opera and hard SF.” —Steve Miller, co-author of The Liaden Universe

Dr. Grass Audiobook

Dr. Grass

Author: Grania Davis Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: November 2020

An MD as outrageous as your doctor's bill Ernie Spiegelglass gets high, gets involved, and is about to complete his residency ... he hopes. Brash, brilliant, and often profane, Ernie (alias Doc Sparrowgrass) enters the world of a San Francisco clinic and turns the entire place upside down with his riotous romances and his own unique style-which includes treating patients like people. The medical establishment is turned off to his idea of medicine-from the heart, not by the book-but Ernie can't turn his back on anyone who comes to him for help, even if it means jeopardizing his career. Dr. Grass is a funny, honest, poignant book about a refugee from the 1960's growing up and not selling out in the 1970's.

Burn the Ashes Audiobook

Burn the Ashes

We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes. In Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, that's the motto of the Firemen who hunted down and burned books wherever they found them. Bradbury warned of a world where our literary history is taken from us. In Burn the Ashes, some of the best science fiction authors working today continue to explore the dystopic worlds they introduced in Ignorance Is Strength. Edited by John Joseph Adams, Hugh Howey, and Christie Yant, the Dystopia Triptych is a series of three anthologies of dystopian fiction. Ignorance Is Strength-before the dystopia-focuses on society during its descent into absurdity and madness. Burn the Ashes-during the dystopia-turns its attention to life during the strangest, most dire times. Or Else the Light-after the dystopia-concludes the saga with each author sharing their own vision of how we as a society might crawl back from the precipice of despair. Burn the Ashes features all-new, never-before-published works by the following authors, in order of appearance: Carrie Vaughn, Tim Pratt, Rich Larson, Cadwell Turnbull, Karin Lowachee, Adam-Troy Castro, Caroline M. Yoachim, Hugh Howey, An Owomoyela, Seanan McGuire, Dominica Phetteplace, Alex Irvine, Tobias S. Buckell, Scott Sigler, Darcie Little Badger, Violet Allen, and Merc Fenn Wolfmoor.
