Veronica Giguere has a new title she’s narrated. It’s a joint effort between her and Cedric Johnson, and it’s entitled Broken:
The city of Charlton is a city divided: Upper Charlton, where the rich and powerful work and play, and Charlton Terrace, where the poor are kept from crossing the ever-widening economic gap by corporate dynasties controlling the flow of capital, their security firms controlling the city police, and numerous gangs controlling the streets.
Miranda Garren has a chance of escaping the Terrace’s oppression and making a new life for herself with the help of an old family friend and his plans for advanced medical technology. Criofan Byrne is the city’s favorite son, champion of the local boxing circuit and heir to a corporate empire. Their separate worlds are brought together and destroyed around them in a single night by the leader of the Cabezas de Muerte gang, who will stop at nothing in order to make a name for himself in Upper Charlton.
Forced into using the experimental prosthetic technology Miranda had been working on, Criofan must put aside everything he knew of his privileged existence and work with Miranda. Together, they must find a way to escape the machinations of the cruel, vindictive gang leader, the life he’s thrust them into, each other and themselves—and reclaim control of what remains of their lives.

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.

Here’s a new fantasy-based children’s tale by Phin Hall. It’s called Montgomery’s Trouble in the Underworld:
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.
