Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest

Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest

Author: William Henry Hudson Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/11/2021

After a failed revolutionary attempt leads Abel, a young European explorer, to seek refuge in the primeval forests of Venezuela, the curious call of an unseen bird lures him deeper and deeper into the jungle, where he encounters the source of the siren song-a lovely, half-wild girl with mysterious powers. Thus, in the "green mansions" of the forest, begins the romance between Abel and Rima, who speaks the languages of birds and longs to return to the land of her birth to be reunited with others of her kind. But the love that flowers between them is soon overshadowed by cruelty and sorrow ... Written by a British naturalist with a deep love and knowledge of wilderness areas, the richly colored tale transports listeners to the lush atmosphere of the Amazonian outback. Originally published in 1904, this haunting classic offers a narrative of lyric beauty as well as a fascinating link between nineteenth-century Romanticism and modern environmentalism.

The Mirror of the Sea: Memories & Impressions

The Mirror of the Sea: Memories & Impressions

Author: Joseph Conrad Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/10/2021

First published in 1906, The Mirror of the Sea was the first of Joseph Conrad's two autobiographical memoirs. Discussing it, he called the book "a very intimate revelation...I have attempted here to lay bare with the unreserve of a last hour's confession the terms of my relation with the sea, which beginning mysteriously, like any great passion the inscrutable Gods send to mortals, went on unreasoning and invincible, surviving the test of disillusion, defying the disenchantment that lurks in every day of a strenuous life; went on full of love's delight and love's anguish, facing them in open-eyed exultation without bitterness and without repining, from the first hour to the last." The Mirror of the Sea is a personal meditation on the sea and its meanings by one of the twentieth century's most important novelists. When Joseph Conrad was discharged from the clipper Torrens in London during the summer of 1893, his seafaring career was over. He had travelled the world by then, risen in rank from apprentice to captain, survived shipwreck and turbulent seas. But, after nineteen years afloat he longed for the land, and wrote to his cousin of the "uniform grey of my existence." Once ashore, however, vivid memories of his past life began to surface. While steam and internal combustion were changing maritime travel forever, Conrad started to reflect on the voyages he had made in the Golden Age of Sail, the people and ships he had known, and the extraordinary communities whose lives, language, and very nature were shaped by the swells and silences of the open ocean.

Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem

Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem

Author: Gary Phillips Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/10/2021

Matthew Henson and the Ice Temple of Harlem is the first in an exciting new retro, rollicking adventure series. This re-imagined pulp novel follows the Doc Savage-style adventures of the first American to reach the North Pole-Matthew Henson. The tail end of the Roaring Twenties. Harlem. Hired by controversial spiritual leader Daddy Paradise to retrieve his adult daughter who has been kidnapped, adventurer Matthew Henson does just that. Then he must safeguard the two until the firebrand can deliver a momentous speech at a mass rally. Henson must employ all his survival skills to fulfill his task-skills that kept him whole in forbidden jungles, across Asia, and in sub-zero ice storms when he first reached the North Pole. Henson's charge brings him face-to-face with such illustrious characters as gangster Dutch Schultz, who's looking to muscle out numbers racket boss Queenie St. Clair; and famed inventor Nikola Tesla, who is using his electrical acumen to surveil plutocrats. Henson's pal Bessie Coleman, America's first Black aviatrix, lends a hand as well. With a death ray zeroing in on him, Henson races against the clock to save lives, and to keep a mysterious and powerful meteor fragment he brought back from the Arctic years ago out of the hands of monied evil-doers.

Author: Robert Whiting Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/09/2021

Tokyo Junkie is a memoir that plays out over the dramatic sixty-year growth of the megacity Tokyo, once a dark, fetid backwater and now the most populous, sophisticated, and safe urban capital in the world.

A colorful social history of what Anthony Bourdain dubbed, "the greatest city in the world," Tokyo Junkie is a revealing account by an accomplished journalist who witnessed it all firsthand and, in the process, had his own dramatic personal transformation.

The Masque of the Red Death

The Masque of the Red Death

Author: Edgar Allan Poe, Steven Archer Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/09/2021

A cinematic audiobook with a haunting score and enhanced atmosphere Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Masque of the Red Death" nearly 180 years ago, yet its narrative and characters continue to mystify and captivate. The short story is driven by Prince Prospero's attempt to evade the "Red Death," a fatal plague infecting his kingdom, by hiding in his abbey, where he indulges in pleasures and delights with other nobles. He soon finds out that no one can escape their end. Steven Archer has recast the characters of "The Masque" and illuminated the narrative in a novel and perhaps more visceral light, while remaining true to the raw darkness and decadence of the tale. His modern take on the classic story brings it into our new infected world. Perhaps it was prescience that drove him to create the illustrations in 2018, only to have them see the plague-filled light of day in 2020. Even now in our enlightened and modern world, "Darkness and Decay and the Red Death holds illimitable dominion over all." With a foreword by John Langan (The Wide Carnivorous Sky), this is an immersive audio-visual feast that breathes new life into this classic memento mori tale of disease, decadence, and inevitable mortality. The audiobook features a conversation between Steven Archer and Stefan Rudnicki and includes an accompanying PDF of Steven Archer's original illustrations.

Hero-or Nazi?Silvia Foti was raised on reverent stories about her hero grandfather, a martyr for Lithuanian independence and an unblemished patriot. Jonas Noreika, remembered as "General Storm," had resisted his country's German and Soviet occupiers in World War II, surviving two years in a Nazi concentration camp only to be executed in 1947 by the KGB.

A Star Shall Fall

A Star Shall Fall

Author: Marie Brennan Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: 01/06/2021

The Royal Society of London plays home to the greatest minds of England. It has revolutionized philosophy and scientific knowledge. Its fellows map out the laws of the natural world, disproving ancient superstition and ushering in an age of enlightenment. To the fae of the Onyx Court, living in a secret city below London, these scientific developments are less than welcome. Magic is losing its place in the world-and science threatens to expose the court to hostile eyes. In 1666, a Great Fire burned four-fifths of London to the ground. The calamity was caused by a great Dragon-an elemental beast of flame. Incapable of destroying something so powerful, the fae of London banished it to a comet moments before the comet's light disappeared from the sky. Now the calculations of Sir Edmond Halley have predicted its return in 1759. So begins their race against time. Soon the Dragon's gaze will fall upon London and it will return to the city it ravaged once before. The fae will have to answer the question that defeated them a century before: How can they kill a being more powerful than all their magic combined? It will take both magic and science to save London-but reconciling the two carries its own danger ...
