Welcome to London, but not as you know it. A place where magics and horror run free, wonders and miracles are everyday things, and the dark streets are full of very shadowy people... Gideon Sable is a thief and a con man. He specializes in stealing the kind of things that can't normally be stolen. Like a ghost's clothes, or a photo from a country that never existed. He even stole his current identity. Who was he originally? Now, that would be telling. One thing's for sure though, he's not the bad guy. The people he steals from always have it coming. Gideon's planning a heist, to steal the only thing that matters from the worst man in the world. To get past his security, he's going to need a crew who can do the impossible ... but luckily, he has the right people in mind. The Damned, the Ghost, the Wild Card ... and his ex-girlfriend, Annie Anybody. A woman who can be anyone, with the power to make technology fall in love with her. If things go well, they'll all get what they want. And if they're lucky, they might not even die trying... Performed by Christopher Walker, Scott McCormick, Jenna Sharpe, John Kielty, Rayner Gabriel, Terence Aselford, Henry Kramer, Holly Adams, Peter Holdway, Kay Elúvian, Rob McFadyen, Eric Messner, Lydia Kraniotis and Michael John Casey.Show more
There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant. This cruel Otherworld is unknowable. Yet, if we are to survive, we must rescue it from our history. Should we fail, more than cities will fall. ROOTS WILL RISE. CITIES WILL FALL. Roots, once suffocating under cement, tear through the streets of London to throttle buildings. Vegetable homunculi hold up banks with automatic weapons. There is a green and blooming world beyond our own, fighting back against the human pollutant. We will launch a rescue mission to this Otherworld. But it is cruel and unknowable, and should we become tangled in its vines, more than cities will fall. From Dan Watters (Limbo, The Shadow, Assassin’s Creed) and Val Rodrigues comes a story of two worlds, of myth and man, of science and fiction, and the roots they share. Performed by Eric Messner, Nazia Chaudry, Jenna Sharpe, Scott McCormick, Carolyn Kashner, John Kielty, Jonathan Lee Taylor, Lise Bruneau, Marni Penning, Rayner Gabriel, Amanda Forstrom, Bradley Foster Smith, Chris Stinson, Chris Davenport, Elaine Yuko Qualter, Evan Casey, James J. Johnson, James Konicek, Joe Mallon, Katie Leigh, Matthew Bassett, Matthew Pauli, Michael John Casey, Nora Achrati, Patrick Bussink, Richard Rohan, Steve Wannall, Taylor Coan, Terence Aselford, Tia Shearer, and Yasmin Tuazon.Show more
A laugh-out-loud tale packed with science, adventure, and a whole lot of fun for all ages! Humans have gone too far, wrecking planet Earth. We might need to find a new planet. But who could possibly help us do that? The AstroNuts! Lucky for us, back in the 1980s, NNASA (NotNASA) created four secret superpowered Animal Astronauts - AlphaWolf, SmartHawk, LaserShark, and StinkBug. They were built to be automatically launched into space to check out possible Goldilocks planets if things on Earth ever got too bad. Unlucky for us, things just got too bad. The AstroNuts' first destination, the Plant Planet, looks just right. It has oxygen, shelter, water, and no obvious intelligent life. But what if plant life has a mind of its own? And what if that mind has one very scary plan for our AstroNuts? A nonstop joyful listen for reluctant readers and fans ready to blast past Wimpy Kid. Performed by Nanette Savard, Danny Gavigan, Dawn Ursula, Tia Shearer, Chris Stinson, Terence Aselford, Richard Rohan, Colleen Delany, John Kielty, and Jenna Sharpe.Show more
