New release! On Liberty by John Stuart Mill

July 2nd, 2014 by Evo

David “Grizzly” Smith has a penchant for narrating the classics. This time, it’s On Liberty, published originally 145 years ago.

“On Liberty,” a seminal work by philosopher John Stuart Mill.  Mill felt there were no definite standards for defining what society has standing to regulate and punish, and what is solely the business of individual to choose for themselves, if they accept the consequences to themselves.  It is a discussion that needs to be remembered, and it is a discussion that needs to be revived in the modern world.  Liberty still matters.

A mysterious figure known as The Lazaran begins to influence events in the barren, The Warrant ushers more and more of the populace under their wing, and a wanted man known as Devil makes Abranyah an intriguing proposition. Will her decisions effect life before The Whatever? Will she discover the secret to the blackness? Or, will her choices lead to war?

Thirteen-year-old Montgomery does not believe in magic. But then, he’d have said people don’t live hundreds of metres below London, yet here they are! And in the Underworld city of Lundarien they have eight kinds of magic – the ‘Magic Circles’.

Here Montgomery meets Jarfin and others, who show him around the vast city caverns and even take him hunting in the Hanging Forest, and he soon feels more at home in the Underworld than back in his apartment on the Surface.

But all is not well in Lundarien, what with the kidnappings, the stampeding monsters and the dark forces lurking in the Labyrinth, and Montgomery finds himself drawn into defending the city and his new friends against an evil tyrant, while unearthing his own magical heritage.

They did a terrible thing. They’ve returned to make it right. The price will be high.

Chaos is sweeping the islands of Wefrivain–slave revolts, attacks on temples, and questions about the true nature of the wyvern gods. The catalyst is a single book called The Guild of the Cowry Catchers. The authors are a band of pirates.

Gerard and his friends are not content to merely spread unrest. They’re determined to free the fauns of Maijha Minor, who are scheduled to be sold or slaughtered. This is a situation that Gerard, Silveo, and Gwain created, and they want to make it right.

However, things are not as they seem on the deadly island game park. Priestess Morchella is pulling strings, and the fauns may want their own brand of revenge. Gerard lost everything last time he stepped onto Maijha Minor. If he’s not careful, the same could happen again.

The Guild of the Cowry Catchers is a fullcast audio experience, featuring the voices of Nathan Lowell, Norm Sherman, Chris Lester, Kim Fortuner, Renee Chambliss, J. Daniel Sawyer, Big Anklevich, Rish Outfield, Nobilis Reed, James Durhamand, many more.

New release! Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

April 29th, 2014 by Evo

OK, maybe “new” isn’t the right word, but it’s the first time Pollyanna has appeared on our site, thanks to the narration skills of Phil Chenevert. Here’s what this public domain book is all about:

In a small town far out West, 11 year old Pollyanna loses her mother then her dad to disease. This book describes how the orphan is sent to be raised by her aunt who lives far away in the East of the country. Unfortunately her aunt does not want her but accepts her very reluctantly only out of ‘duty’ and sticks her into a tiny hot attic room so she will be ‘out of the way’. What Aunt Polly does not know is that Pollyanna is bringing the game of being ‘glad’ that her father taught her and that her irrepressible happy attitude will transform not only that dull and miserable house, but an entire village before she is through.
