It was not uncommon for a radio series to be associated with a publishing firm, but Mystery House gave book promotion a slight twist. In each program, the staff members of Mystery House, that strange publishing firm owned by Dan and Barbara Glenn, would pitch in to perform a half-hour mystery while others would provide sound effects, rewrite scripts, and so on, with the premise of demonstrating the credibility of a novel before it was published. Information on this lighthearted dramatic series is sketchy at best, but what we do know is that this unique series offers some tight and nifty little mysteries, presented in a novel manner, and all have been transferred from original master recordings and painstakingly restored to preserve their full superior audio fidelity. 1.

How to Sew a Button:And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew Erin Bried
A provocative and contrarian work - filled with great lessons from history - that challenges the pervasive notion that America is on the decline. Once every decade, it is ´´decline time´´ in America. In recent years, it has been the unstoppable rise of China that has spelled ´´finis America.´´ What the Chinese juggernaut is today, the Soviet Union (´´We shall bury you´´) was in the 1950s. The Vietnam decade of the 1960s was described as America’s ´´collective suicide attempt,´´ while in the 1970s, the United States succumbed to Jimmy Carter’s famous ´´malaise,´´ as the dollar dangerously plummeted. The 1980s unquestionably belonged to a resurgent Japan, the ´´Rising Sun,´´ whereas in the 1990s, Europe shone forth as an ´´empire by example.´´ In the naughts, it was ´´Asia Rising´´ that became the flavor of the decade. Despite a litany of prognostications, these contenders have all fallen back, one by one. While it may be catnip for the media to play up America as a has-been, Josef Joffe, a leading German commentator and Stanford University academic, compellingly shows that declinism is not a cold-eyed diagnosis but a device in the style of the ancient prophets: ´´Thou shalt perish, unless…´´ Gloom is a prophecy that must be believed so that it will turn out wrong. Joffe repeatedly demonstrates how the ´´economic miracles´´ that propelled the rising tide of challengers flounder against their own limits. Hardly confined to Europe alone, declinism has also been an especially nifty career builder for American politicians, among them Kennedy, Nixon, and Reagan, who all rode into the White House by hawking ´´the end is near.´´ Effortlessly mixing keen historical insights with brilliant diplomatic and economic analysis, The Myth of America´s Decline becomes a remarkable reflection on our nation’s standing in the world and an eye-opening account that challenges the pervasive and now tired notion that America is on the decline. 1.

DON´T PANIC: collected together in the Hitchhiker´s Guide Trilogy are the five titles that comprise Douglas Adams´ wildly popular and wholly remarkable comedy science fiction series. This one volume ebook edition comes complete with an unhelpful introduction from the author, a bonus short story, Young Zaphod Plays It Safe , and a special undeleted scene . . . The Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy One Thursday lunchtime the Earth gets unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be rather a lot to cope with. Sadly, however, the weekend has only just begun. The Galaxy may offer a mind-boggling variety of ways to be blown up and/or insulted, but it´s very hard to get a cup of tea. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe When all questions of space, time, matter and the nature of being have been resolved, only one question remains - ´Where shall we have dinner?´ The Restaurant at the End of the Universe provides the ultimate gastronomic experience, and for once there is no morning after to worry about. Life, the Universe and Everything Following a number of stunning catastrophes, Arthur Dent is surprised to find himself living in a hideously miserable cave on prehistoric Earth. However, just as he thinks that things cannot get possibly worse, they suddenly do. An eddy in the space-time continuum lands him, Ford Prefect, and their flying sofa in the middle of the cricket ground at Lord´s, just two days before the world is due to be destroyed by the Vogons. Escaping the end of the world for a second time, Arthur, Ford, and their old friend Slartibartfast embark (reluctantly) on a mission to save the whole galaxy from fanatical robots. Not bad for a man in his dressing gown. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish There is a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. It´s not an easy thing to do, and Arthur Dent thinks he´s the only human who´s been able to master this nifty little trick - until he meets Fenchurch, the woman of his dreams. Fenchurch once realised how the world could be made a good and happy place. Unfortunately, she´s forgotten. Convinced that the secret lies within God´s Final Message to His Creation, they go in search of it. And, in a dramatic break with tradition, actually find it . . . Mostly Harmless Arthur Dent has settled down on the small planet Lamuella and has embraced his role as a Sandwich Maker. However, his plans for a quiet life are thrown awry by the unexpected arrival of his daughter. There´s nothing worse than a frustrated teenager with a copy of the Hitchhiker´s Guide to the Galaxy in their hands. When she runs away, Arthur goes after her determined to save her from the horrors of the universe. After all - he´s encountered most of them before. This publishing phenomenon began as a radio drama and now exists in a number of wildly contradictory versions (including a TV series, a movie and a towel) - this version, produced by Douglas Adams´ original publisher, is, at least, definitively inaccurate.
