She readily admits to murder, and the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct a cover story. But is it possible Laura Warwick did not commit the crime after all? If so, who is she shielding?

His tales elicit a deep sympathy for all people, wherever they may be, in Russia more than a hundred years ago or anywhere in the world today. These translations, by Constance Garnett, Marian Fell, and others, are offered here as public domain recordings created both for...

Djuna Barnes (12 June, 1892 to 18 June, 1982) Djuna Barnes was an American writer who played an important part in the development of 20th century English language modernist writing and was one of the key figures in 1920s and 30s bohemian Paris after filling a similar role in the Greenwich Village of the teens. Her novel Nightwood became a cult work of modern fiction, helped by an introduction by T. S. Eliot. It stands out today for its portrayal of lesbian themes and its distinctive writing...

John Burroughs (1837-1921) was an immensely popular writer during his lifetime. He traveled with John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt; he spent various afternoons with Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Walt Whitman and hundreds of other well known people as he traveled across the States or when they visited his simple home and study overlooking the Hudson River. He was Whitman's first biographer, clear of Whitman's virtue and visions and unfaltering in his clear-minded praise. One might say he had, for many...

Over the generations, he continued to influence the lives of both everyman and those who would one day themselves shape history, including Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While best known as the author of WALDEN, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE and other seminal works, he also continued to regularly write poems, many of them appearing within the text of his prose work. Many of these poems were recorded for...

Lu Xun (Lu Hsün, 1881-1936) is considered the father of modern Chinese literature. Expressing an affinity with Nikolai Gogol, his works speak in the language of everyday China entering the Modern Age. "A Madman's Diary," with its nod to Gogol's tale of the same name, tells of one man’s struggles with outmoded traditions in the guise of cannibalism. Are his fears real or are they an expression of madness? Like Gogol in "The Cloak" and other tales, Xun approaches our...

Anton Chekhov's Swan Song [1887] was one of his early plays. In it are but two characters: Vasili Svietlovidoff, a 68 year old comic actor and Nikita Ivanich, who is an even older man, the theater's prompter. Following a benefit evening in his honor, unbeknownst to everyone, the comic actor Svetlovidov falls asleep in a drunken blur. When he awakens, the theater is dark and empty. He falls quickly into saddened monologue... The play opens with Chekhov's stage directions: The scene is laid on...

Recorded here is the complete, original story as penned by Fitzgerald in the early 1920s, published originally in Colliers and finally collected in the popular Tales of the Jazz Age.

Song of Myself is the core of Walt Whitman's opus magnum, Leaves of Grass. In it he celebrates himself not simply as the poet Walt Whitman in all of his great complexity, but he transcends his own "me-ness" and in doing so welcomes and embraces all of humanity and the natural world each and every corner of it equally, without reservation. Whitman is true, natural and spontaneous, without affectations. He lived comfortably in the 19th Century world, however it manifest. All 52...

Nazi Germany expected its airborne attack on Crete in 1941 to be a textbook victory based on tactical surprise. Little did they know that the British, using Ultra intercepts, had already laid a careful trap. It should have been the first German defeat of the war when a fatal misunderstanding turned the battle around. Prize-winning historian and bestselling author Antony Beevor lends his gift for storytelling to this important conflict, showing not only how the situation turned bad for Allied...

On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and suffered an astonishingly low rate of casualties. A stunning military accomplishment, it was also a masterpiece of trickery. Operation Fortitude, which protected and enabled the invasion, and the Double Cross system, which specialized in turning German spies into double agents, tricked the Nazis into believing that the Allied attacks would come in Calais and Norway rather than Normandy. It was the most sophisticated...

Eddie Chapman was a charming criminal, a con man, and a philanderer. He was also one of the most remarkable double agents Britain has ever produced. Inside the traitor was a man of loyalty; inside the villain was a hero. The problem for Chapman, his spymasters, and his lovers was to know where one persona ended and the other began. Based on recently declassified files,  Agent Zigzag  tells Chapman’s full story for the first time. It’s a gripping tale of loyalty, love, treachery,...

In 1943, from a windowless basement office in London, two brilliant intelligence officers conceived a plan that was both simple and complicated— Operation Mincemeat. The purpose? To deceive the Nazis into thinking that Allied forces were planning to attack southern Europe by way of Greece or Sardinia, rather than Sicily, as the Nazis had assumed, and the Allies ultimately chose.   Charles Cholmondeley of MI5 and the British naval intelligence officer Ewen Montagu could not have been more...

The Longest Day  is Cornelius Ryan's unsurpassed account of D-Day, a book that endures as a masterpiece of military history. In this compelling tale of courage and heroism, glory and tragedy, Ryan painstakingly recreates the fateful hours that preceded and followed the massive invasion of Normandy to retell the story of an epic battle that would turn the tide against world fascism and free Europe from the grip of Nazi Germany.

Back in 2008 I ( Robo aka Drew Dobbs ) spent weeks going through piles of old diaries, photos and art to create a lengthy blog about my years in the band Big City Orchestra . Now in late 2017, I finally got around to creating a "book" version for posterity, completely reformatted and with new elements to bring the history up to the "present". At 200 plus pages it includes a ton of data, photos, posters and art from my time in the band, much of the art by me. Due to the large...
