The first book in C.J.Cherryh´s eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race. From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Thomas May. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/004304/bk_adbl_004304_sample.mp3.

Virginia Miner, a 50-something, unmarried tenured professor, is in London to work on her new book about children´s folk rhymes. Despite carrying a U.S. passport, Vinnie feels essentially English and rather looks down on her fellow Americans. But in spite of that, she is drawn into a mortifying and oddly satisfying affair with an Oklahoman tourist who dresses more Bronco Billy than Beau Brummel. Also in London is Vinnie´s colleague, Fred Turner, a handsome, flat broke, newly separated, and thoroughly miserable young man trying to focus on his own research. Instead, he is distracted by a beautiful and unpredictable English actress and the world she belongs to. Both American, both abroad, and both achingly lonely, Vinnie and Fred play out their confused alienation and dizzying romantic liaisons in Alison Lurie´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Smartly written, poignant, and witty, Foreign Affairs remains an enduring comic masterpiece. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Van Dyck.

Stories from the Range: Book Four Country singer Willie Meadows is a fake. He´s never ridden a horse, and his ´´Western´´ gear comes from a boutique shop in LA. No wonder Wilson Edwards, the real man in those fake boots, is suffering creative block. Determined to connect with the music, Wilson buys a ranch in Wyoming to learn the country way of life, even if he has no intention of running the business. Then, Steve Peterson shows up desperate, destitute, and hungry, having just escaped a gay deprogramming hospital run by his father´s cult. Steve was supposed to train horses for the ranch´s former owner, but the job is gone along with his would-be employer. Luckily, Wilson has a temporary solution: Steve can ranch-sit while Wilson does business in LA. But when he comes back, Wilson barely recognizes the place. There are trained horses in the paddock, and the ranch is in great shape. Suddenly he finds himself inspired not by the cowboy lifestyle but by Steve himself. But the cult is still after Steve, and Wilson´s fear of scandal means he´s still in the closet. Coming out could kill Willie´s career - but denying his feelings for Steve could kill the only part of him that´s real. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Gelder.
