From the mind of Walter Koenig (Star Trek: The Original Series, Babylon 5) comes Buck Alice and the Actor-Robot - a science-fiction comedy unlike anything you´ve ever heard before! When an alien invasion annihilates most of humanity, it´s up to a small pocket of survivors to restart civilization. There´s just one problem: they´re all losers.

With a full-cast, a sweeping original music score, and thousands of sound effects, the award winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air proudly presents a black comedy with a heart that pumps slightly acidic blood.

The short stories of Irish writers appeal to audiences far beyond the shores of Eire. In this second rich selection, we bring you the comic genius of Le Fanu in ´´The Ghost and the Bonesetter´´; a slice of Dublin life from the refreshingly original pen of James Joyce; a tale of love and honour from Ireland´s hungry times in ´´The Stolen Sheep´´; George Moore´s evocative masterpiece about a countryman returning home to Ireland from a slum in ´´The Bowery´´; and C.E. Montague´s cynical revelations about the dubious methods of English newspapermen covering an Irish funeral. These stories, in turn atmospheric, spookily funny, full of intriguing characters, picturesque, and touching, are steeped in the Irish delight in story-telling and cover an intriguing century of Irish city and country life. With his wonderfully rich voice and expertise at story-telling, narrator T.P. McKenna, the well-known Irish actor, brings an authentic flavour to this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: T.P.

The Irish are arguably the most literate people in the world. The number of famous Irish authors, from Joyce to Trevor and from Goldsmith to O´Brien, is a clear testimony to that. In this rich selection, we have concentrated on some of the early Irish writers who were particularly adept at the difficult art of writing good short stories. They range from Gerald Griffin´s chilling tale, ´´The Brown Man´´, to the delicate and closely observed ´´Araby´´, taken from James Joyce´s Dubliners, about adolescent sexual awakening. Also included are Oscar Wilde´s stylish and witty story ´´The Model Millionaire´´, about a young man on whom good fortune smiles; Oliver Goldsmith´s ´´Adventures of a Strolling Player´´, a compressed narrative of a peripatetic existence; Sheridan Le Fanu´s story about the ´´Faustian´´ Sir Dominick Sarsfield; William Castleton´s wily distiller Bob Pentland and his outwitting of the excide man; and Agnes Castle´s romantic Rosanna. They combine in a distinctive potpourri of stories written by Irish story tellers and inspired by Irish life and character. With his wonderfully rich voice and expertise at story-telling, narrator T.P. McKenna, the well-known Irish actor, brings an authentic flavour to this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: T.P.

In the spirit of David McCullough´s Brave Companions, this anthology of popular American history presents the stories of nine incredible Irish immigrants as written by nine contemporary Irish-Americans. Rosie O´Donnell, for instance, the adoptive mother of five, tells the story of Margaret Haughery, known as ´´Mother of the Orphans´´; filmmaker and activist Michael Moore writes about the original muckraking journalist, Samuel McClure; and celebrated actor Pierce Brosnan writes about silent film director Rex Ingram. Some of the figures profiled are well known, others have stories that are less often told; all are inspiring. Compelling history mixed with moving and personal reflection, this collection of portraits is at once uniquely intimate and surprisingly immediate. More than one in 10 Americans claims Irish ancestry and, with its celebrity contributors, Nine Irish Lives will have strong appeal for those listeners. It is also, though, a timely portrait of shared humanity. These are stories about immigrants - and in the tales of revolutionaries and visionaries, caretakers and unsung heroes, Nine Irish Lives reminds us of the values and the people that have shaped America. 1.
