Summary

Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, only to discover that LV-426 — where the crew of the Nostromo first came into contact with the deadly xenomorphs — has been renamed Acheron. Protected by Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet against all the odds. But in the face of brutal living conditions and the daily struggles of a new world, there is humanity and hope. Anne and Russell Jorden — two colonists who are seeking a fortune that eluded them on Earth — are expecting their firstborn child. The birth of Rebecca Jorden, known to her family as Newt, is a cause for celebration. But as the colony grows and expands, so, too, do the political struggles between a small detachment of Colonial Marines and the Weyland-Yutani scientists posted on Acheron. Willing to overlook their orders in order to serve the Company's interests, these scientists have another far more sinister agenda — to covertly capture a living Alien. The wildcatters discover a vast, decaying spaceship. The horseshoe-shaped vessel is of particular interest to Weyland-Yutani and may be the answer to their dreams. But what Anne and Russell find onboard proves to be the stuff not of dreams but of nightmares. This terrifying, cinematic, multicast dramatization — directed by the multiaward-winning Dirk Maggs, best known for his adaptations of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere for the BBC — is the sequel to Audible Original's Alien: Out of the Shadows (nominated for Best Audio Drama at the 2017 Audies). Starring Golden Globe-nominated Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies, Limitless), Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Game of Thrones), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, Doctor Who), Colin Salmon (Alien vs Predator, Arrow, James Bond), Marc Warren (Mad Dogs, Saving Private Ryan, Hustle) and Philip Glenister (Outcast, Life on Mars), with special guest star William Hope returning as Lt. Gorman from James Cameron's Aliens.

The Infirmary: A DCI Ryan Mystery (Multicast Drama)

Summary

Introducing a new multicast drama by LJ Ross, the author of the international number one best-selling series, the DCI Ryan mysteries.  There's a serial killer targeting the streets of Newcastle, seemingly picking his victims at random but subjecting them all to the same torturous end. When the Chief Inspector on the case goes missing, it falls on DCI Ryan to track down the man who is brutally murdering women and goading the police to 'catch me if you can'.  As everyone becomes a suspect, Ryan and his team get drawn further and further into the case, but for Ryan the nightmare gets closer to home than he could ever have imagined.  This Audible Original drama stars Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express, Jekyll & Hyde, Snatched), Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Les Misérables), Hermione Norris (Spooks, Cold Feet) and Kevin Whately (Lewis, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and is a prequel to the DCI Ryan series. Starring: Alun Armstrong, Rachel Atkins, Tom Bateman, Mark Bazeley, Anna Bolton, Bertie Carvel, Stephen Critchlow, Vicki Davids, Reece Dinsdale, Harriet Ghost, Frances Jeater, Jack Lloyd, Dean Logan, Daniel Matthew Lemon, Roger May, Hermione Norris, Kate Okello, Colleen Prendergast, Shaun Prendergast, Nicholas Rowe, David Seddon, Marlene Sidaway, Tom Slatter, Fiona Victory, Lauren Waine, Kevin Whately and Hannah Wood Audible member reviews “I was going to listen to a bit whilst I swept and cleaned the floors and then I had work to do that just couldn't wait any more. I am now the proud owner of the cleanest floor in the UK, and possibly the world! I just couldn't stop, it's a totally gripping and absorbing dramatisation. It was fascinating listening, especially as a long standing fan of LJ Ross' DCI Ryan series, and the idea of giving listeners the back story to how the team came together is inspired. A standing ovation for The Infirmary.” – Melanie, Audible member “If, like me, you are a DCI Ryan fan then you will already know what this story is about. If you haven't yet met DCI Ryan and his crew then you are in for a treat as this starts the series off in the most chilling of ways. I could feel the goose bumps rising, my skin crawling as you got that absolute detachment, especially from Bertie Carvel as he divulged the killer's thoughts to the listener. With all the thrills and spills of your favourite DCI Ryan novels, brought to life by a stellar cast, this book will hook you from the action filled opening, through the story's dark and chilling heart, to its sad but inevitable conclusion.” – Jen, Audible member “If you haven't read any DCI Ryan before, you are in for such a treat, and if you have, you are going to LOVE how this brings those much-loved characters completely to life. This Audible Original takes us back to the beginning, and we come to understand how and why Ryan ended up on Holy Island in Book One. With the cast of wonderful characters: Frank, Denise, Jack and the return of Arthur Griegson (superbly played by Alun Armstrong - one of my favourite actors), Ryan is hunting down The Hacker - the killer that has haunted him throughout the series so far. Bertie Carvel stood out for me: a fantastic, spine-chilling performance as the serial killer that has turned Newcastle into a ghost town. Oh, my skin crawled! So many great performances, and I was thrilled to hear genuine North East actors and accents which, along with the music and sound effects, brought authenticity to the whole story. Wonderful stuff.” – Nicky, Audible member

All Stories Are Fiction

Summary

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him "the master storyteller" and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris. In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York's Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech. In Tension is the Great Integrity, the passing of the Pope and conflicting feelings about Catholicism are touched on, as is Mike's trouble with writing deadlines for an independent film to be made in Copenhagen. Papal musings come head-to-head with evocative and mournful Scandinavian imagery like "a cup full of black ravens sits before me and I live in a profound desolation of the self". Yes, it's funnier than it sounds.

The Teachers' Lounge

Summary

The Teachers' Lounge is Bill Harley's newest spoken word recording: a collection of hilarious and dead-on observations about life in elementary school. On this latest recording, two richly detailed and plotted stories of his school experiences ("The Teachers' Lounge" and "The Science Fair") are coupled with three poems. But are the stories true? "Hmmm," Harley says. "Well, it says they are on the title. In my storytelling, I try not to let historical accuracy get in the way of honesty. All the stories and poems ARE audience tested," he notes.

Henry IV, Part 1 (Dramatised)

Summary

One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays is here performed by The Marlowe Society with Anthony Jacobs, Corin Redgrave, Paul Scofield and many other very fine actors. The story itself follows on from that of Shakespeare’s Richard II (also available in this series) and begins with Hotspur's battle at Homildon against the Douglas late in 1402 and ends with the defeat of the rebels at Shrewsbury in the middle of 1403. Within those boundaries are many familiar themes; having ascended to the throne Henry begins to doubt the loyalty of his friends and amplifies the power of his enemies. But Henry must move to quell those who might usurp him….

The Adventures of Luther Arkwright

Summary

Luther battles against the Disruptors in a parallel world where many things are familiar - but nothing is the same. The alternative England where Luther fights the Disruptors did not see the monarchy restored after the English Civil War and has been under the rule of the Puritan Parliamentarians for hundreds of years. Led by a direct descendant of Oliver Cromwell, England is ripe for the taking by European superpowers that are preparing to invade. Many in England dream of past glories and an empire ruled by the long exiled Kings and Queens of England. A second civil war is brewing, its aim to bring Prince Charles to the throne, and Luther must help to ensure that the right side wins - not just for the sake of this world but for all worlds. Written by Bryan Talbot; adapted by Mark Wright. Directed by Jason Haigh-Ellery.

Lieber vom Fachmann

Summary

Musikalisch ironisch, bösartig gewitzt, schwarzhumorig, am Kitsch hart vorbei mitten ins Zentrum menschlichen Irrsinns: Man kennt Andreas Rebers als Gangsta-Rapper mit dem Akkordeon, als Vollblutmusikant aus dem "Güntertreffen", als Erfinder der "Polonaise durch die Institutionen" und der neuen deutschen Volksmusik. Nun singt er Arbeiter- und Liebeslieder in der Tradition von Brecht, Bohlen und Karl Moik, verspricht Coverversionen aller Superhits der 80er und 90er Jahre sowie zahlreiche Uraufführungen. Ausgestattet mit modernster Technik: Akkordeon und Klavier aus ökologischem Anbau und die Gesangstechnik norddeutsch und bodenständig wie der Interpret. Minimalistische Pointen sind seine Stärke. Andreas Rebers spricht, singt, spielt Akkordeon und Klavier, auf keinen Fall Gitarre, und interveniert gegen die Bezeichnung "Liedermacher"! Er war Mitglied der Münchener Lach- und Schießgesellschaft, stand u. a. mit Dieter Hildebrandt und Bruno Jonas auf der Bühne und gehört zu den regelmäßigen Gästen des "Scheibenwischer". Bereits vielbepreist erhielt er zuletzt die höchstdotierten Lorbeeren für einen Kabarettisten: 2006 den Salzburger Stier (für Deutschland), 2007 den Deutschen Kleinkunstpreis und 2008 den Deutschen Kabarettpreis.
