Shirley Pitts, the eldest of six children, was born upside down on November 24, 1934. Her ´´career´´ began by thieving bread off doorsteps and coal from coal carts. Her father´s bungled attempts at black marketeering and her dipsomaniac mother´s inadequacies made Shirley resolve to be not only a first-class thief but also the best mother her six children could wish for. Before she died Shirley told her story to Lorraine - the story of a generous, brave, and beautiful woman with a huge sense of fun and a love of life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Annie Aldinton.

Starship engineer Anailu Xindar dreamed of owning her own ship, but she didn´t find the courage to actually go for it until she was forced out of her safe, comfortable job. She goes shopping for a cheap, practical freighter, but she ends up buying a rare, beautiful, but crippled luxury ship. Getting it into space will take more than her technical skills. She´ll have to go way outside her comfort zone to brave the dangers of safaris, formal dinners, a rude professor, and, worst of all, a fashion designer. She may even have to make some friends...and enemies. The Sculpted Ship is set on the outskirts of an interstellar empire where FTL travel is commonplace but intelligent robots are rare and expensive. Though the Iris Empire has stood for 1,000 years, a talented individual can find plenty of opportunity. But the nobility of this empire guards its privileges jealously. 1. Language: English.

Wie viele Touristen jährlich Nordkorea besuchen, lässt sich exakt sagen: Wenige. Und nur einer kam wegen einer Wasserrutsche. Satiriker und TV-Autor Christian Eisert reiste 1500 Kilometer durch die Kim-Diktatur. An seiner Seite eine kratzbürstige Fotoreporterin mit gefälschter Biografie - und der nordkoreanische Geheimdienst. Diese Ferien in Nordkorea halten viele Überraschungen bereit: Hotelzimmer mit Softeisautomaten, Gestecke aus Blumen und Raketen und an der gefährlichsten Grenze der Welt: Ein Tänzchen zu ´´Tränen lügen nicht´´. Immer wieder gelingt Eisert und seiner Begleiterin ein Blick hinter die Kulissen des Systems. Schon bald aber geraten sie an ihre emotionalen Grenzen - und immer öfter aneinander. Doch getrennte Wege zu gehen, ist schwierig, wenn vor der Hotelanlage Wachen mit Kalaschnikows patrouillieren.Christian Eisert, Jahrgang 1976, ist TV-Autor, Satiriker und Comedy-Coach.
