Hop-Frog or the Eight Chained Orangutans is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1849. The title character, a person with dwarfism taken from his homeland, becomes the jester of a king particularly fond of practical jokes. Taking revenge on the king and his cabinet for the king's striking his friend and fellow dwarf Trippetta, he dresses the king and his cabinet as orangutans for a masquerade. In front of the king's guests, Hop-Frog murders them all by setting their costumes on fire before escaping with Trippetta.Critical analysis has suggested that Poe wrote the story as a form of literary revenge against a woman named Elizabeth F. Ellet and her circle. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Troy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/edel/008890/bk_edel_008890_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Six beautiful young girls — all in white dresses and arranged in a perfect circle — have been left for dead. Only one girl, fighting for her life at a nearby hospital, has survived the carnage. Stranger still, the crime is an exact replica of a decades-old cold case. Things only get more complicated when Medical Examiner Seth Rutledge, Victoria’s first love, arrives on the scene. The timing couldn’t be worse for Victoria, who faces the case of her life and a killer determined to destroy her. In the fourth book in her heart-pounding Bone Secrets series, bestselling author Kendra Elliot sends listeners on a dark and thrilling journey as forensic anthropologist Victoria Peres races to solve a horrific new case while confronting the secrets of her past. 1.

This big-hearted, laugh-until-you-can't-breathe collection of personal essays, stories, and riffs on finding love and intimacy in New York City announces the arrival of a "a monstrous new talent" (New York magazine) in the vein of David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, and Tina Fey. In this uproariously funny debut collection, award-winning writer and performer Isaac Oliver serves up a comedic cornucopia of sketches, vignettes, lists, and diaries from his life as a young, fanciful, and extremely single gay man in New York City. Whether he's hooking up with a man who dresses as a dolphin, suffering on airplanes and buses next to people with Food from Home, or hovering around an impenetrable circle of attractive people at a cocktail party, Oliver captures the messy, moving, and absurd moments of urban life as we live it today. Since moving to New York a decade ago, Oliver has pined for countless strangers on the subway, slept with half the people in his Washington Heights neighborhood, and observed the best and worst of humanity from behind the glass of a Times Square theater box office. He also rode the subway during Breastfeeding Awareness Week and lived to tell the tale. Culled from years of heartbreak, hook-ups, and more awkwardness than a virgin at prom and a whore in church (and he should know because he's been both), Intimacy Idiot chronicles Oliver's encounters with love, infatuation, resilience, and self-acceptance that echo our universal desire for intimacy of all kinds. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Isaac Oliver.

Lily Lake is a smart sexy girl from the ‘wrong side of the tracks’ who is suddenly swept into a passionate sexual affair with the wealthy businessman Patrick Thornton-Wynn. After a whirlwind wedding, Lily quits her teaching job and starts writing a gossip column that turns her into a celebrity in her husband’s uppercrust social circle. Her life couldn’t get any better. But when Lily is too busy to pay attention to her husband, Patrick gets pissed, and gives her a painful spanking followed by hard anal sex. While Patrick quickly regrets the incident, it only inspires Lily’s dormant desires for submission. Suddenly, their passionate love life is on the skids. Patrick is away on business more than he’s home, and a lonely Lily turns to the Internet to satisfy her growing need for kinky sex. Before long, she’s performing degrading sex acts for a mysterious Mr. X while he watches her sleazy sex show on his webcam. Although she carefully masks her identity, one unfortunate night, she sends the wrong email to her on-line lover. With her cover blown, Mr. X now insists they meet face to face. She learns that he’s a wealthy young scoundrel with a nasty sadistic streak. He punishes, humiliates and uses the needy Lily in cheap motels. Then he dresses her in a hooded latex cat-suit and takes her to raunchy sex parties where rich perverts use her as their sex toy. Despite her desire to stop this reckless madness, Lily can’t help herself, or the teaming needs that rule her. Even when she says she wants out, Mr. X threatens to expose her sleazy secrets. Does she call his bluff? If so, her entire life could be destroyed! A cheating wife, a wronged husband and an unforgiving sadist drive this story of kinky sexual lust to a shocking and unexpected conclusion. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Natalie Bernadette.

Since her parents' mysterious deaths many years ago, scientist Cora Sparks has spent her days in the safety of her university lab or at her grandmother Etta's dress shop.
