SOMETHING wants in. To your head. Through this audiobook. Ethan, a digital sound engineer in Los Angeles, becomes aware that his life is unraveling when the audiobook he’s listening to reveals his deepest, darkest secrets, escalating until the narrator addresses him directly, threatening to destroy him from within. Vivian, a single mother running an antique store in San Francisco, listens to her audiobook to distract herself from missing her young daughter, but is shaken when the narrative is interrupted by her daughter’s voice, faintly calling for help. Ethan and Vivian are drawn together as they fight to solve a generation-spanning conspiracy that begins with a boy listening to the Orson Welles broadcast of War of the Worlds in 1938 and evolves through the latest innovations in digital technology, unearthing the mind-bending concept of a POSSIBILITY PARASITE bent on unleashing an explosion of APOCALYPTIC META HORROR.

  • Publisher: LibriVox

Henry VI, Part 1 or The First Part of Henry the Sixth (often written as 1 Henry VI) is a history play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1591, and set during the lifetime of King Henry VI of England. Whereas 2 Henry VI deals with the King’s inability to quell the bickering of his nobles, and the inevitability of armed conflict, and 3 Henry VI deals with the horrors of that conflict, 1 Henry VI deals with the loss of England’s French territories and the political machinations leading up to the Wars of the Roses, as the English political system is torn apart by personal squabbles and petty jealousy.

Killers You’ve Never Heard Of

  • Publisher: Jordan Carroll
  • Total Episodes: 7

Welcome to Killers you’ve never heard of. The true crime world is very anglo-centric, focusing on the United States, Australia, UK and Canada. There are important stories to be told and highlighted around the world that do not get enough attention and the victim’s stories are not told. Killers you have never heard of is going to flip that, our intention is to highlight crimes from each country around the world in English, to spread the understanding of these wider. Some countries do not have readily available information, such as North Korea, so, in those cases we may stray away from the theme of serial killers. A warning to anyone listening, that there will be descriptions of crimes that are disturbing, including sex crimes and murders, the descriptions are not graphic for drama, but to help you understand the horror of the crimes. We are not speakers of each language, so, we will do our best to get pronunciation as close as possible for names and places. One last thing, if you have any suggestions for crimes you would like highlighted, please message us on Instagram, @killersyouveneverheardof where you can also see pictures and maps that will help illustrate the scenes.
