Nineteenth-century reformer Susan B. Anthony advocated for many causes, including limitations on alcohol access and abolition of slavery. However, she is best known for her tireless efforts as a suffragist seeking equal and civil rights for women. Nellie Bly was a courageous and feisty female reporter for Joseph Pulitzer´s The World newspaper in the late 1800s. In this landmark interview, Anthony discusses her history in several areas of social reform. She talks at length about her work in the women´s suffrage movement. She also offers commentary about women´s dress reform and bicycling, two hot topics of the time. This audiobook was created to coincide with the 120th anniversary of the publication of a very interesting conversation between two of the most remarkable women in American history. 1.

Cult supernatural writer and investigator of the paranormal Tom Slemen brings you 25 strange and spooky stories about the creepy side of Christmas in The Angel of Twelfth Night. As the title suggests, those enigmatic but awe-inspiring beings known down the ages as ´´angels´´ are featured in this book, but you will also meet the fallen angel, Lucifer. You´ll be introduced to weird but true tales about ´´Bernie with the Broken Neck´´, a grisly-looking apparition who met his death on the site of Liverpool´s metropolitan cathedral, and the ´´Gruesome Snowman´´, a dead body cocooned in snow and impaled by playful children. You´ll also be privy to the touching ghost story concerning the spirits that haunted the world-famous Strawberry Fields, made popular by the Beatles, and the bizarre account of a boy who befriended an extra-dimensional pet ´´hole´´. Hear about the tragic death of little Nellie Clarke who was outraged and brutally murdered by a serial killer she described as ´´Father Christmas´´...the case is still unsolved. Some of the tales in The Angel of Twelfth Night are heart-warming accounts from the Season of Goodwill, but others - such as the terrifying tale of ´´The Boar´s Head´´ and ´´The Girl in the Red Dress´´ will chill you to your marrow... Ideal for fireside listening on those wintry nights when the wind is howling at the window...or is it a banshee... Note: All of these stories have appeared previously in Tom Slemen´s highly-acclaimed Haunted Liverpool series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Gilligan.
