Modern technology is terrifying. The average smartphone carries out three-point-three-six billion instructions per second. The average person can only carry out one instruction in that time. Stop and think about that for a second. Sorry, that's two instructions; you won't be able to do that. But what if modern technology was... literally terrifying? What if there really was a ghost in the machine? Travel through the bad gateway in this modern ghost story as award-winning writer and performer Tom Neenan ('The Mash Report', 'Spitting Image') discovers what horrors may lurk in our apps and gadgets... With a full cast including Nina Sosanya (W1A, His Dark Materials), Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing), Andy Nyman (Fiddler On the Roof, Ghost Stories), Freya Parker (Lazy Susan) & Georgie Glen (Call The Midwife, The Thick Of It) In the first episode of series 3 - hang on, let me just put you on hold...

In the next episode, a brand-new exercise bike means Tom has to stay ahead of the pack - in every sense... ... and in the final episode, we discover there is something even worse than a nightmare as sweet dreams turn very very sour...

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne, read by Richard E. Grant, Richard Cordery, Nina Sosanya and Laurence Kennedy. A psychological drama of cat and mouse, A Ladder to the Sky shows how easy it is to achieve the world if you are prepared to sacrifice your soul. If you look hard enough, you can find stories pretty much anywhere. They don't even have to be your own. Or so would-be writer Maurice Swift decides very early on in his career. A chance encounter in a Berlin hotel with celebrated novelist Erich Ackermann gives him an opportunity to ingratiate himself with someone more powerful than him. For Erich is lonely, and he has a story to tell. Whether or not he should do so is another matter entirely. Once Maurice has made his name, he sets off in pursuit of other people's stories. He doesn't care where he finds them - or to whom they belong - as long as they help him rise to the top. Stories will make him famous but they will also make him beg, borrow and steal. They may even make him do worse.Show more
