(BBNC) Sly & The Family Stone: One of the most innovative groups popular music has ever known, a band that instigated a musical revolution! Led by Sylvester ´Sly Stone´ Stewart, The Family Stone´s personnel was black and white, and male and female, and black and white, making it likely the first fully integrated group in the history of popular music.

This book covers the entire discography of Sly & The Family Stone. It is a complete career overview, from the first gospel recording by the Stewart Four, through to Sly´s most recent releases, as well as each members solo work in the years before and since, illustrated with vinyl releases from all over the world. It´s the book all Sly fans have been waiting for. As a special bonus, copies come with a 45 reproduction of the hyper-rare Stewart Four 78 from 1952.
We RPG game masters have a lot of tools to help us run our role-playing games. Our monster books and bestiaries give us piles of foes to throw at our adventurers. The various guides for game masters often give us non-player characters, treasures, and story-building tips. One of the hardest parts of game mastering, however, is coming up with interesting adventure locations for our characters to explore. These locations need to be fantastic, detailed places that capture the minds of our players every session we run. Good locations are hard to improvise and often hard to strip out of a fully fleshed-out adventure. Sly Flourish´s Fantastic Locations is an audiobook of 20 system-agnostic locations you can drop into your favorite fantasy role-playing game. Each location builds on a fantastic theme, such as a mysterious ancient structure under the ice, a cursed castle of a mad king, a fallen celestial fortress, or a dwarven mine that cracked into the tomb of a dead god. Thanks to the support of 779 backers on Kickstarter, this audiobook was expanded to include a total of 20 locations each with full-color artwork included as a PDF along with this audiobook. This audiobook helps you fill your mind with the lore of these fantastic locations so you can build fantastic worlds for your players.

From the novelist with Antonia Fraser´s authenticity and Anne Rice´s allure comes another ´´highly enjoyable romp´´ (Newsday), with a millennial twist. In The Oracle Glass and The Serpent Garden, Judith Merkle Riley enchanted listeners with rich, pause-resisting re-creations of eras past, wicked thumbnail sketches of power players, riotous action, delicious mystery and romance, luminous prose, and feisty heroines with a feminist sensibility. The Master of All Desires has it all, with an extra helping of the occult, clad in Riley´s hallmark style and wit. It is 1556 and the queen´s astrologer, the prophet Nostradamus has uncovered a secret that could destroy the kingdom of France. The queen, Catherine de Medicis, a dabbler in black magic, has decided to get rid of the king´s mistress by seeking out the legendary Undying Head of Menander the Magus, known as the Master of All Desires. But she does not know that evil befalls all those who wish upon this accursed object. And the head, in its coffer, has fallen into the possession of a charming, wryly perceptive but stubborn young woman: Sybille Artaud de la Roche, a bluestocking poet who needs it to obtain all her desires...beauty, genius, and a dashing, intelligent cavalier. The three-way battle that ensues - a prophet who scorns poetry, a woman in love, and a sly and ruthless queen - is set against the rich, detailed tapestry of a nation on the verge of civil war and a lively constellation of famous figures clustered around Nostradamus, seer of the millennium. 1.

Corrie’s life is threatened by the evil Master-at-Arms Mr. Sly. Corrie meets the escaped slave Billy Brown, the captain of the Maintop, and wonders if Billy, too, is a woman in disguise. All the while, she feels the ambiance of a warship in the time of Nelson: scrubbing the deck, keeping watches, learning to speak the language, and to find her way from the cat lashings to the bilge hole. Barton is careful about the language of the time and faultless in his description of naval customs and traditions. As you listen to the tale, you have to wonder why the historical fact that women served in large numbers under Nelson has been hidden from the public for so long. Here at last is a true-to-life account that helps to set the record straight. England and France have declared war, and Corrie Harriman joins in on the action.

Russia, 1891. The new governor-general of Siberia has been secreted away on a train from St. Petersburg to Moscow. A blizzard rages outside as a mustachioed official climbs aboard near the city; with his trademark stutter, he introduces himself as State Counsellor Erast Fandorin. He then thrusts a dagger inscribed with the initials CG into the governor-general´s heart and, tearing off his mustache, escapes out the carriage window. The head of the Department of Security soon shows up at the real Fandorin´s door and arrests him for murder. The only way to save his reputation is to find CG - and the government mole who is feeding the group information. Can Fandorin survive corruption among his fellow officials, the fearlessness of an unknown enemy, and the advances of a sultry young nihilist with his morals intact? The State Counsellor is colorful entertainment from a master of the sly historical romp. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nigel Patterson.

With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky, coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you - especially when it’s sold off piece-by-piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them. But by the time Raylan finds out who’s making the cuts, he’s lying naked in a bathtub, with Layla the cool transplant nurse about to go for his kidneys. Dark and droll, Raylan is pure Elmore Leonard - a pause-resister filled with sparkling dialogue and sly suspense that are the hallmarks of this modern master. 1. Language: English.
