Their Eyes Are Moving: Creepy True Stories of the Kids´ Toys...Perhaps one of the less common things people feel is a fear of dolls. There is something about those little bodies and creepy little faces that just put people on edge, regardless of any past experience they´ve had, movie they´ve seen, or story they´ve heard. Pediophobia, as this fear is scientifically named, can range from modern Barbie and Bratz dolls all the way to porcelain and antique dolls. Some only have a fear of one kind of doll, others have a fear of every doll imaginable. But, all in all, the fear is generally classified as one of the many phobias people face in life, and isn´t taken seriously. Then, there are times that dolls should be feared. Not all dolls, not all of a specific kind of doll, but dolls that have been grasped by beings we can´t see. Dolls that have been brought under the power of beings we can´t normally hear or feel. Dolls that have become haunted.... Though they look innocent, harmless, and like the perfect companion for any little boy or girl, these dolls are malevolent, malicious, and horrifying. There´s nothing playful about any one of them.... Here is a preview of what´s inside...

In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark-as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer. To numb the pain of failure, Ferguson found comfort in drugs and alcohol, addictions that eventually led to an aborted suicide attempt. (He forgot to do it when someone offered him a glass of sherry.) But his story has a happy ending: success on the hit sitcom The Drew Carey Show, and later as the host of CBS´s Late Late Show. By far Ferguson´s greatest triumph was his decision to become a U.S. citizen, a milestone he achieved in early 2008. In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson talks a red, white, and blue streak about everything our Founding Fathers feared.

Pretending to Be Me is an intimate, acerbic, and occasionally scurrilous show about the poet, jazz aficionado, and Hull University librarian Philip Larkin. Larkin has moved home: surrounded by packing cases, playing selections from his favourite jazz LPs, and making himself cups of tea, and later whiskies, he reflects wryly on writing and life. Hilarious and moving, the narrative shifts seamlessly between Larkin´s outrageous wit and the poems, which Courtenay reads with powerful directness and simplicity. Philip Larkin, one of the foremost figures in 20th-Century English poetry, feared his epitaph would be: ´´They f*** you up, your mum and dad´´. This, and other familiar poems, including ´´An Arundel Tomb´´, ´´The Whitsun Weddings´´, and ´´High Windows´´. are included in Pretending to Be Me. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Courtenay.

Written some 40 years after Moby Dick, Melville´s Billy Budd is a moving tale of good versus evil. Set aboard a British navy ship at the end of the eighteenth century, a young, innocent sailor´s charm and good nature put the men around him at ease. Ship life agreed with Billy. He made friends quickly and was well liked, which infuriated John Claggart, the ship´s cold-blooded superior officer. Mutiny was a continual threat greatly feared by naval officers. Even minor offences were dealt with harshly to keep crews in their place, regardless of whether the accused was guilty or innocent. The envious Master-at-Arms becomes obsessed with the destruction of the ´Handsome Sailor´ and torments the young man until his false accusations lead to an eventual charge of treason against Billy.
