    Dean Evers, an elderly widower, sits in front of the television with nothing better to do than waste his leftover evenings watching baseball. It’s Rays/Mariners, and David Price is breezing through the line-up. Suddenly, in a seat a few rows up beyond the batter, Evers sees the face of someone from decades past, someone who shouldn’t be at the ballgame, shouldn’t be on the planet. And so begins a parade of people from Evers’s past, all of them occupying that seat behind home plate. Until one day Dean Evers sees someone even eerier….

    Story

    As always, Stephen King (this time with Stewart O' Nan) can create a great character, and he does so once again here. The premise is the main character Dean Evers is seeing faces from his life in the crowd of a televised baseball game. Many of them are deceased and it doesn't seem possible. He is determined to get to the bottom of it. There is a nice surprise in here and its a fun quick listen with Craig Wassen giving a very strong performance. As is sometimes the case with a Stephen King book, the ending is a bit anti climactic, but overall I found it enjoyable.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    Story

    Danny Torrence from The Shining returns in this sequel to the all time classic. The book starts off a little slow as King seems to be finding his way back into Danny's world but once he gets there, it is non-stop Awesomeness. A definite listen for fans who enjoyed the first book as well as newcomers who need not worry because the book stands alone as well. This time the Shining has guided Danny to help a young girl who has powers like him except stronger, but will the two of them together be enough to stop a pack of soul stealing vampires.

    Celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who, a brand new adventure for the Second Doctor. Following an emergency landing, the TARDIS arrives on a remote world orbiting a peculiar star - a pulsar which exerts an enormous gravitational force, strong enough to warp time. On further exploration the Doctor and his friends, Jamie and Zoe, discover a human outpost on the planet surface, inhabited by scientists who are there to study an ancient city.

    Story

    The 2nd Doctor with the help of his companions and the 11th Doctor must figure out why time is moving at different speeds both on the ship they landed in and outdoors. Also what happened to all the people who used to live there. Excellent job reading by Farzier Hines who played Jamie McCrimmon in the series.

    It's the perfect read for Doctor Who fans on the go as the duration is not much longer than one of the current TV episodes. I can't wait for all the others in this series to be released as they are doing one for each Doctor as part of the 50th anniversary.

    Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture.

    Story

    The Doctor and Rose investigate a disappearance as well as people seemingly turning to stone. In the process they get stoned themselves. How will they get out of this one?
    David (the 10th Doctor) Tennant does a Brilliant job performing and breathing life into this fun adventure. Its very entertaining and short enough to be enjoyed several times.
