“I do not write for children, but for the childlike, whether of five or 50 or 75.” – George MacDonald

The Princess and the Goblin was published in 1872. One of the very first fantasy novels this magical classic had a profound influence on the work of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and is loved by fans of fantasy fiction to this day. Eight-year-old Princess Irene lives in a remote mountainous region with no one but her nursemaid for company. Then she meets a mysterious old woman and Curdie, a young miner. Meanwhile, deep in the heart of the earth beneath her lurk grotesque and hideous creatures seeking vengeance against human kind.

The Goblin and the Grocer by Hans Christian Andersen is a short fairy tale about a very different kind of goblin who must choose between poetry or an edible Christmas treat.

Both stories are read by award-winning audiobook narrator, comedienne, and best-selling author of The English American, Alison Larkin. Other children’s classic tales read by Alison Larkin include Peter Pan and The Inconsiderate Waiter by J M Barrie and Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass – the 150th anniversary audio edition by Lewis Carroll.

Tom Pollock’s debut novel and the first volume of the Skyscraper Throne series, The City’s Son is an imaginative tale of adventure set in a city that is quite literally alive.

Beneath the streets of London lies a city of monsters and miracles, where wild train spirits stampede over the tracks and glass-skinned dancers with glowing veins light the streets.

Following a devastating betrayal, Beth Bradley, a sixteen-year-old graffiti artist, is suspended from school. Running from a home that she shares with her father who has never recovered after Beth’s mother’s death, Beth stumbles into the hidden city and meets Filius Viae, London’s asphalt-hued crown prince. And her timing couldn’t have been more perfect. An ancient enemy is stirring under St. Paul’s Cathedral, determined to stoke the flames of a centuries-old war, and Beth and Fin find themselves drawn into the depths of the mysterious urban wonderland, hoping to prevent the destruction of the city they both know and love.

Earphones Award Winner

Award-winning narrator, comedienne, and best-selling author of The English American, Alison Larkin brings the classic story of Peter Pan to a new American audience in this brilliant, “hugely entertaining” recording.

When Peter flies into the Darling home looking for his shadow, he teaches Wendy, John, and Michael how to fly with him back to the island of Neverland, where they embark on an “awfully big adventure”.

Followed by J. M. Barrie’s short story “The Inconsiderate Waiter.”

In the world of the Victorian Club, it does not do for a gentleman to be seen to take an interest in a member of the working class. How dreadfully inconvenient then, when the narrator’s waiter begins to reveal a personality and feelings of his own.

Additional commentary by Alison Larkin on life “betwixt and between” England and America.

Title and end music by Emmy Award-winning composer, Gary Schriener.

When her beloved father was assassinated, Lady Aramina swore revenge. The man responsible is well beyond her grasp, but his dangerously seductive heir, Leo Barrons, is fair game. When Mina obtains evidence proving that Leo is illegitimate, she has the means to destroy both the killer and his son, a man who troubles her heart and tempts her body.

A woman of mystery, Mina has long driven Leo crazy with glimpses of a fiery passion that lurks beneath her icy veneer. He knows that she’s hiding something, and he’s determined to unravel her layer by silken layer. He just doesn’t expect the beautiful liar to be the key to overthrowing the corrupt prince consort or to saving his own carefully walled-off heart.

A beautiful young miss challenges a powerful aristocrat in this historical romance by best-selling author Marion Chesney.

For lovely young Miss Patricia Patterson, life seemed a delightful dream – until the specter of her guardian, Lord Charles Gaunt, cast a shadow over her carefree days of idleness and enchanting evenings of dazzling balls and delicious flirtations. Lord Charles demanded she act the part of a proper and perfectly boring young miss. Even worse, he insisted she devote her waking hours to cultivating her mind rather than captivating her swarm of admirers. Thus the battle was joined – between the handsome, arrogant aristocrat who had Patricia in his lawful power and Patricia, who vowed to turn this hateful tyrant into her lovelorn slave.

Fiercely independent Daisy Chance has a dream – and it doesn’t involve marriage or babies (or being under any man’s thumb). Raised in poverty, she has a passion – and a talent – for making beautiful clothes. Daisy aims to become the finest dressmaker in London.

Dashing Irishman Patrick Flynn is wealthy and ambitious and has entered society to find an aristocratic bride. Instead he finds himself growing increasingly attracted to the headstrong, clever, and outspoken Daisy. She’s wrong in every way – except the way she sets his heart racing.

However, when Flynn proposes marriage, Daisy refuses. She won’t give up her hard-won independence. Besides, she doesn’t want to join the fine ladies of society – she wants to dress them. She might, however, consider becoming Flynn’s secret mistress….

But Flynn wants a wife, not a mistress, and when Flynn sets his heart on something, nothing can stand in his way.

Ever since Beth Bradley found her way into a hidden London, the presence of its ruthless goddess, Mater Viae, has lurked in the background. Now Mater Viae has returned with deadly consequences. Streets are wracked by convulsions as muscles of wire and pipe go into spasm, bunching the city into a crippled new geography; pavements flare to thousand-degree fevers, incinerating pedestrians; and towers fall, their foundations decayed. As the city sickens, so does Beth – her essence now part of this secret London. But when it is revealed that Mater Viae’s plans for dominion stretch far beyond the borders of the city, Beth must make a choice: flee, or sacrifice her city in order to save it.

England, 1819. The earl of Amhurst has returned to his estate in search of a wife and, more importantly, an heir. Simon Devere isn’t interested in some comely, simpering creature. A beautiful woman brings only heartbreak and ruin, and Simon’s disfigured visage is proof enough of that. No, he wants a wife who is unattractive and undesirable – and the homelier, the better.

But nothing about Lady Henrietta Beauchamp is homely. She is lovely and sweet and struggles to mix with polite society when she would so much rather have plants for company. And yet Simon is her only hope for keeping Plumburn Castle in her family’s possession, even if it means marrying a man she doesn’t love.

It’s an impossible and unlikely match unless this awkward beauty can bring hope back into a solitary beast’s life.

We do not come into the world with an innate sense of taste and nutrition; as omnivores, we have to learn how and what to eat, how sweet is too sweet, and what food will give us the most energy for the coming day. But how does this education happen? What are the origins of taste?

In First Bite, the beloved food writer Bee Wilson draws on the latest research from food psychologists, neuroscientists, and nutritionists to reveal that our food habits are shaped by a whole host of factors, including family, culture, memory, gender, hunger, and love. An exploration of the extraordinary and surprising origins of our tastes and eating habits – from people who can eat foods only of a certain color to an amnesiac who can eat meal after meal without getting full – First Bite also shows us how we can change our palates to lead healthier, happier lives.

New York Times best-selling author M. C. Beaton’s beloved Agatha Raisin is back and finds that she must prove her own innocence when a local therapist turns up dead. When therapist Jill Davent moved to the village of Carsely, Agatha Raisin was not a fan. Not only was this therapist romancing Agatha’s ex-husband, she dug up details of Agatha’s not-too-glamorous origins. Jill also counsels a woman, Gwen Simple, that Agatha firmly believes assisted her son in some grisly murders, although there is no proof. Not one to keep her feelings to herself, Agatha tells anyone who will listen that Jill is a charlatan and better off dead. Agatha can only sigh with relief when the therapist takes an office in Mircester.

When Agatha learns that Jill had hired a private detective to investigate her background, she barges into Jill’s office and gives her a piece of her mind, yelling, “I could kill you!” So when Jill is found strangled to death in her office two days later, Agatha becomes the prime suspect. But Agatha, along with her team of private detectives, is determined to prove her innocence and find the real culprit. This time Agatha must use her skills to save her own skin. With Dishing the Dirt, M. C. Beaton proves that “once you meet Agatha Raisin, you’ll keep coming back” (New York Journal of Books).

At age 26 Agatha Raisin has already come a long way. She has clawed her way up since leaving the Birmingham slum where she was born. She’s lost her Birmingham accent, run away from her drunken husband, and found a job at a public relations office as a secretary. Then her boss asks Agatha to go to the home of Sir Bryce Teller to tell him that he is soon to be arrested for the murder of his wife and that the agency no longer wants to represent him.

Teller, impressed with the pugnacious Agatha, asks her to handle PR for him and even offers her an office and tells her she can hire a staff. Certainly the best thing Agatha can do for her first client is to find out who really murdered his wife and clear his name. And with her wits and gumption, Agatha sets out to do just that.

New York Times best-selling author M. C. Beaton’s character Agatha Raisin is beloved by millions, and this brand-new short story takes us back to where it all began with Agatha’s first case.

On the eve of the London season, Jane Chance is about to make her entrance into high society. And after a childhood riddled with poverty and hardship, Jane intends to make a good, safe, and sensible marriage. All goes according to plan until a dark, dangerous vagabond helps her rescue a dog.

Zachary Black is all kinds of unsuitable – a former spy, now in disguise, he’s wanted for murder. His instructions: to lie low until his name is cleared. But Zach has never followed the rules, and he wants Jane Chance for his own. If that means blazing his way into London society in whatever guise suits him, that’s what he’ll do.

Jane knows that she shouldn’t fall in love with this unreliable if devastatingly attractive rogue. But Zach is determined – and he’s a man accustomed to getting what he wants.

Fifteen-year-old Isabella Rockwell’s bones ache with homesickness. But home is 8000 miles away in northern India, and Isabella is imprisoned in the bitter winter of 19th century London. Sent to England after her father goes missing in a violent battle, Isabella runs away from a life of drudgery and hardship. Rescued from death by a gang of street urchins, Isabella finds the shelter and love she so desperately craves. As an accomplished trickster, she starts to save for her passage home with the money she makes from swindling the rich.

After a moment of heroism which surprises even herself, Isabella wakes in Kensington Palace. This is an opportunity too good to miss. If she can steal one of the glowing, priceless paintings, she and her gang will have enough to keep out searing cold and gnawing hunger for the rest of their lives.

If Isabella plays her cards right.

What she hasn’t reckoned with is her growing fondness for the Princess Alixandrina Victoria Hanover, a kind and lonely girl her own age, and heir to the British throne. Despite the richness of her surroundings, Alix’s life is harsh and without love.

When someone poisons Isabella, she realizes it is actually Alix’s life which is under threat. At first Isabella suspects Prince Ernest, a hardened general, and next in line to the throne. Or is it John Conroy, a powerful schemer, in love with Alix’s beautiful spendthrift mother, and desperate to get his hands on Alix’s inheritance? Either way, Isabella’s feelings of responsibility for Alix and her loyalty to the gang who saved her life, are tearing her apart.

Instead of taking advantage of Alix, will Isabella puts her own needs aside and cast herself into mortal danger to save her friend? Only the harsh lessons of Isabella’s past can help her decide if she should leave Alix to her fate – a fate tied up with Isabella’s own.

A fate which will have consequences far beyond those she could ever have imagined.
