This short book related some interesting tales of underwater mysteries. While some of the more famous ones were included, there were many I had never heard of. There are some strange things beneath the waves. I read this book using immersion reading, listening to the audio book. The narrator did a good job relating the stories within. An interesting short read/listen.

These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These first-hand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events.

This was a collection of unusual phenomena. There are a number of UFO tales in addition to the ghost stories. Several of the stories were featured on the excellent Destination America show Monsters and Mysteries in America. This audiobook used two narrators for the stories and both were wonderful.

That being said, this audiobook has a major flaw. There are a number of stories in the book that were NOT INCLUDED in this audiobook. It should be noted as abridged and not the full book. This was extremely annoying, trying to follow along reading wise to see stories excluded. The last section of Timeslips is short by 7 stories!

In October the cyclic winds begin. A high-pressure system parks over the region, causing cold, dense air to spin clockwise, moving toward the southwest and eventually slamming into the mountain ranges of California. There is only a matter of time before a wildfire begins. On Tuesday, October 21, 2003, an arsonist starts a brush fire. In less than four hours, this fire consumes over 600 acres of land. As the wildfires get out of control, firefighters are overwhelmed.

The bloody-minded Montresor leads the pompous Fortunato deep into the catacombs, seeking the famed Amontillado wine. Here we have one of Poe’s most terrifying, and most “beloved” tales. Revenge and pomposity commingle beneath the river’s bed, leading to a delightfully sinister conclusion.

Who has not been thrilled and not a little frightened by tales of ghosts, spirits, hauntings, and monsters? Some of the most fascinating accounts come from the dark hollows of the Ozark Mountains. For generations, these scary, mystifying legends have been told around campfires and family gatherings and handed down through the generations. Now, for the first time, the best of these tales have been gathered together and presented in this volume.

This is a great collection of spooky folk tales. Unfortunately, the narration doesn’t fit the material. The interesting tales are diminished by the droning relation. It was a real effort to get through this for a time. It had been an audiobook I had looked forward to. Someone with a great storyteller’s voice like Richard Henzel would’ve made this come alive.

This is the second book in the Tales of the Weird series. Author Tom Slemen has more unusual tales to thrill, delight and chill you. These tales come from around the world, unlike the Haunted Liverpool series. Truth is often stranger than fiction, this book helps to reinforce that. The tales were fascinating as usual. I read this book using immersion reading. R k Meyer does a decent job with the narration, but his dry reading lacks the emotion this book needs. I prefer the wonderful Nigel Peever, who handles accents so well. This type of book should be narrated by a Brit.

Wow. This is a rip roaring E ticket ride into the near future. I say near because all of the tech mentioned in this book is in various stages of development. The author even provides links at the end of the book.

This is a techno thriller with an unusual premise. Can we digitally upload ourselves when we die and live on in cyberspace? In this book we find out that we can. We follow the events of Sam Sunborn and his tech site that uploads mementos of the deceased for loved ones. His bright idea of uploading actual memory and human intelligence begins an adventure fighting a brilliant terrorist. To mention anything else will spoil the elaborately plotted book. The plot moves quickly, perhaps too quickly, with many characters introduced. I had to re-read and listen to certain passages more than once just to make sure I was caught up. There are a number of twists and turns, some I could guess and others I could not. I did not see the ending coming at all. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Daniel Greenberg was a fantastic narrator, perfectly hitting the right tone of this work. A fantastic thriller from a new author. I also enjoyed how the tech did not overwhelm the story, it was explained during the course of the book at proper intervals. An enjoyable read with determined heroes and a despicable villain, this book is a wonderful standout in a somewhat crowded field.

I definitely will check out more of Mr. Bauer's books.

This was an excellent book about the Men in Black. Well researched with a number of details I hadn't heard before, it is a great introduction to the mysterious phenomena. Truly strange, unusual and somewhat unnerving, it delves into some classic cases and some less known examples. I read this book using immersion reading, while listening to the audiobook. Charles Baker does a wonderful job with the narration, helping to make the book come alive. An enjoyable read/listen.
