Goldstone, Nevada: It´s not your typical vacation getaway. Sheriff Tyler Braxton hightails it out of Cottonmouth to Goldstone for a little R&R, when his sister puts out a distress call. Suddenly, instead of vacationing, Brax is offering advice to the lovelorn! And to top it off, he has to start his own investigation on his sister´s behalf: Is his brother-in-law having an affair with the local erotic author? Simone Chandler has found her haven in Goldstone; she loves the forsaken town and its lovable but somewhat beleaguered residents. With a thriving Internet business penning made-to-order erotic fantasies, some of her friends in Goldstone just happen to be her clients, too. The problem: The hunky sheriff from out of town wonders if she´s not only writing stories for his brother-in-law, but acting them out with him, too. Then murder comes to Goldstone, and Brax is suddenly hip-deep in small-town secrets, with sexy Simone Chandler at the head his suspect list. Is Simone the real thing, or, as with everything else in Goldstone, is she more like Fool´s Gold? 1. Language: English. Narrator: June Wayne.

Out of fog-bound Washington, D.C., much as the dark London streets of Sax Rohmer´s Fu Manchu novels, comes a creature of consumate evil - Dr. Yen Sin. This sinister head of an international spy network known as the Invisible Empire is a master of the cunning art of diabolical death. Battling him and his fiendish devices, such as death rays and blow guns, is Michael Traile, who works with the cooperation of the federal government. Only three issues of this magazine were published. A fourth Dr. Yen Sin novel, The Case of the Faceless Man, was announced, but never published. Table of Contents: ´´A Smashing Complete Novel of Oriental Menace, The Mystery of the Dragon´s Shadow´´ by Donald E. Keyhoe - Out of the teeming turbulent East had come Dr. Yen Sin - saffron-skinned wizard of crime - bringing to the Capital of the West all the ancient Devil´s-lore at his command - and a horde of Asian Hell-born to help him spawn it. But Michael Traile - The Man Who Never Slept - had crammed into his own keen brain the means to cope with the sinister doctor. For he knew even the secrets of the Dragon´s Shadow and how to penetrate the yellow murder fog that had descended on the capital to mingle its blood-wisps with the mist from the Potomac. ´´Slant-Eyed Satan - A Chinatown Murder Thriller´´ by Frank Gruber - Inspector Burke thought Sun Ti was a fool when he handed that hundred-thousand-dollar emerald to the first half-caste dock-rat that came along. He didn´t know it would start a blood-circuit that would lead it, inevitably, back to the fat little Oriental´s Curio-shop, in the hands of a walking corpse. ´´The Night of Ka-Sam - A Chinatown Murder Thriller´´ by Archie Oboler - Captain Don Wells, late of the Chinese Army, thought that body-guard assignment was a lead-pipe cinch - until his employer was knifed by the little yellow man. Then he began to learn all about Oriental torture from a past-master. ´´The Ring of the Re 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael C. Gwynne.

Lying on a riverbank on a lazy summer´s afternoon - 23rd June 2016, to be precise - Alice spots a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum. Following him down a rabbit-hole, she emerges into a strange new land, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts... She meets such characters as the Corbynpillar, who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone; Humpty Trumpty, perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for; the Cheshire Twat, who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining; and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness, who´ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit. Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense?
