Good News, Bad News... a secret agent is trained to try to think of every possible outcome and eventuality. Who could have guessed, though, that a bureaucratic error would send two men to the same ´cover´ job, working in a shabby photo-processing booth, where each must keep his real identity secret from the other, while awaiting orders. Or that those orders would be to assassinate... each other. Thrown together by this apparently ghastly mistake, Charlie and George decide to go on the run together. In the whole world, the only people they can trust are each other. Or can they? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gordon Griffin.

As the saying goes, truth is stranger than fiction. But the saying doesn´t go far enough, because truth is much stranger (and more entertaining) than any of us could possibly imagine. And the proof is right here. For almost 20 years, Chuck Shepherd, John J. Kohut, and Roland Sweet have been combing the nation´s newspapers for true stories of bizarre human behavior. This astounding, uproarious, and absolutely factual audio contains the most memorable episodes from their wildly popular books: News of the Weird, More News of the Weird, and Beyond News of the Weird. It´s a phantasmagoria of get-poor-quick schemes, fetishes on parade, felonious foodstuffs, sex gone horribly awry, and much, much more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.

News from Nowhere (1890) is the best-known prose work of William Morris. The novel describes the encounter between a visitor from the 19th century, William Guest, and a decentralized and humane socialist future. Set over a century after a revolutionary upheaval in 1952, these ´Chapters from a Utopian Romance´ recount his journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, Morris´s own country house in Oxfordshire. Drawing on the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx, Morris´s audiobook is not only an evocative statement of his egalitarian convictions but also a distinctive contribution to the utopian tradition. Morris´s rejection of state socialism and his ambition to transform the relationship between humankind and the natural world, give News from Nowhere a particular resonance for modern readers. 1.

The summer season on Cape Cod is over - now it´s time for the real fun to begin. Dominick is always just passing through. He is a professional houseguest who follows the sun and the leisure class from resort to resort. But this winter he lingers on a quaint New England island and, in spite of his best intentions, becomes involved in the travails of his eccentric geriatric hosts. An environmental protest against a proposed liquid natural gas terminal turns ugly, and by accident and happenstance Dominick becomes a mistaken suspect in terrorist bombings. But New Jerusalem News is really about its characters - the plot is just to keep them busy as we get to know them. None of them is young - these are white-bearded men and blue-coiffed women busy with aging, dementia, and ungrateful children. But Dominick strives to float above it all in a life of itinerant escape. A New England comedy of sorts, on another level New Jerusalem News is an extended meditation on history, identity, and what it means to drift. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Paul Guimont.
