Seven short stories are in this compilation. The lead story is: "Miss Lucy Parker" Miss Lucy Parker is a prim, proper elderly lady. When a Volkswagen Beetle - the new kind, and pink - PINK! - turns onto the winding road that leads to Lucy's farmhouse, Lucy is sure the car's occupants are lost. And that the car probably contains hippies, because hippies drive Volkswagen Beetles. Lucy plans to tell the hippies to get lost. She has no need for their odd speech, beads and marijuana aroma. Except hippies are not in the car. A woman is, a woman wearing a short, blood-red dress that hugs her body. Thus begins Lucy Parker's great adventure. "A Weird Situation" Karen does not believe her boyfriend when he tells her that he turns into a woman for seven hours every day. "The Interview" The person interviewing Debby has a giant booger. Should she tell him and risk not getting the job? "First Day at Work" A security guard's first day at a bank has repercussions for him and three workers. "Every Day" A man struggles every day to follow through on a promise to himself. "The Doctor" A doctor salivates at the prospect of delivering bad news to a twelve-year-old girl and her mother. "The Doctor" has child molestation references. "Guardian Angel" Gabriel fancies himself a guardian angel. But is he really? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Tremont King.

Over the last four years, Jacob Sloan has lived naked and alone within an abandoned island hotel, smoking cannabis, eating squirrels, and swimming in a lake that contains a dark secret. As memory slowly begins to flower in his brain, Jacob recalls the traumatic events that lead him to the island, describing a childhood of evangelical Christian horror, constantly fearing bar codes, the Antichrist, and being abandoned in the ever-nearing rapture. In addition to his tales of madness and murder on an Iowa farm, Jacob also recounts the true story of how California's acid-fueled hippies of the 1960s became the religious right of the 1980s. Part historical fiction, part psychological horror, Carnality: Dancing on Red Lake is the first of a six-part series chronicling the con men, authoritarians, and sociopaths of America's evangelical movement, as remembered by a mentally ill boy who was once the biggest child star of the scene.  Read by the author.  Music by Esme Patterson and Adam Baumeister. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Josiah Hesse. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/141825/bk_acx0_141825_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Wildcat! The Films of Marjoe Gortner

ggf. zzgl. Versand

FROM REAL-LIFE CHILD EVANGELIST TO ON-SCREEN PSYCHO HIPPY! Born in sunny Long Beach, California, Marjoe Gortner found early fame as a child evangelist, ordained at the age of four and travelling the revival circuit across America, where his Pentecostal preachings helped bring him to national recognition as something of an infant freakshow. After a period of inactivity throughout his teenage years, Gortner returned to the pulpit in his mid-twenties, using his name and past fame to expose the fraudulent side of preaching, via the Oscar-winning 1972 documentary Marjoe. Gortner used the publicity and notoriety generated by Marjoe as his springboard to Hollywood, launching a new career as an actor, which saw his charismatic good looks put to work in a string of cult exploitation, disaster, sci-fi, horror and drive-in action films, including Earthquake (1974), Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw (1976), Food of the Gods (1976) and the galvanising psychological thriller When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder (1979), where he excelled in the role of Teddy, an angry Vietnam vet out to show the inhabitants of a small New Mexico diner that not all perceived hippies chose to live by a credo of peace and love. Filed with rare photos, stunning movie poster art and interviews with those who worked alongside him, Wildcat! The Films of Marjoe Gortner takes the reader on a journey through the celluloid career of a man whose childhood was often as strange and outrageous as the films and television shows he appeared in.

I've never held a saint before, Ernie said as he cradled the 100-year-old carving of the Santo Nino de Atocha, the Holy Child. When the long-cherished statue of the Santo Nino de Atocha disappears, village leaders decide to keep the news from the Church hierarchy for fear of reprisal. They suspect the culprits are among local hippies, Protestants, drug dealers, Anglos, and other outsiders. But when the statue mysteriously reappears and their beloved chapel sacristan is attacked, favorite son Jay Sierra and his pal, Ernie Lucero, team up to investigate. Long-forgotten facts about the little statue take everyone by surprise and lead to the cozy conclusion of this delightful crime mystery set in an elbow of time during the 1970s, in a high mountain valley in northern New Mexico. This audiobook is filled with music, sound effects, and the northern New Mexico dialect referred to by linguists as the Rio Arriba dialect. Code-mixing of Spanish and English terms is characteristic of the area. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Amador. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brok/000017/bk_brok_000017_sample.mp3.

A drama ripped from today’s headlines 1963: As European colonists flee the Congo, a witch doctor finds an abandoned child and teaches him the power of hatred. A hundred miles to the east, six American hippies on a joyride across Africa crash their VW bus into a cemetery. While they wait for repairs, they scandalize the local missionaries and Brenda Carter impulsively marries an African student. 2013: Brenda Carter brings Sarah, her deeply troubled granddaughter, to Africa to explore her roots and meet her grandfather, the man Brenda married and abandoned 50 years before. When a Peace Corps worker is murdered, a baby is kidnapped, and all contact with the outside world is severed by a torrential rain storm, Sarah becomes an unwilling investigator making the connection between the abandoned boy from the Congo, the truth behind her grandmother’s marriage, and 50 years of undercover CIA involvement in the politics of Africa. A compelling tale of Africa today where witch doctors co-exist with modern medicine, where warlords carry cell phones, and where one small nation stands at the crossroads of America’s War on Terror. 1.

Desperate Times 2 Gun Control , Hörbuch, Digita...

Desperate times continue to grind on with no sign of Martial Law ending soon or any hope that the economic crisis has subsided. Jimmy and his group learn of another camp of refugees that live not ten miles away from them. The group has adopted a 1960's era commune theme, complete with hippie slang and a flower child mentality. The commune was created out of one of the grand old lodges of northern Minnesota and is called Utopia, and they have one rule: No guns allowed. By chance or design, the population of Utopia is 90% female and for some strange reason, the National Guard seems perfectly content to allow it to exist without harassment. Jimmy's group is evenly split on joining up with the much larger group, who appear to be at peace with the world. Ken Dahlgren, Jimmy's host, is bound and determined to remain where he is. Patty, Ken's wife, suddenly seems to be losing her grip on reality and it only adds more tension to the situation. Julie, Jimmy's girl, seems intent on staying with the hippies and giving up her guns. Jimmy is torn between the two sides. Jimmy is introduced to a new world as he steps back in time to experience the sixties. What he painstakingly learns is that those he considers to be left-wing liberals are every bit as stubborn as the right-wing conservatives, which he has aligned himself with. The storyline here is a no holds barred, Desperate Times, look at regular people pushed to the limit and forced to respond. The result is a powerful story with an interesting message. 1.

The Legend of the Albino Farm , Hörbuch, Digita...

The harrowing saga of the last of a loving family cursed over the years by a progressively destructive community legend or by a piece of land in the Missouri Ozarks that is haunted by some evil first revealed through a childhood vision. The Legend of the Albino Farm is a horror story turned inside out. What if a thriving family were saddled with an unshakable spook tale? And what if that lore cursed them with an unending whirlwind of destruction from thrill seekers, partiers, bikers, and goths? Hettienne Sheehy is about to inherit this devouring legacy. Last child to bear a once golden name, she is heiress to a sprawling farm in the Missouri Ozarks. During summer, childhood idylls in the late 1940s, Hettienne has foreseen all this apocalyptic fury in frightening, mystifying visions. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a property that seems to doom all who would dare own it, in the end, Hettienne will risk everything to save the family she truly loves. The legend has haunted two generations of Sheehys and marred all memory of the family's glory days. Worse, this spooky lore now draws revelers, druggies, motorcycle gangs, hippies, and later goths to trample the land, set bonfires, and vandalize its structures, all while Hettienne's aged aunts cling to privacy, sanity, and a rapidly deteriorating 13-room mansion. From her youth, throughout her marriage and her rearing of her children, the curse of the Sheehys drags at her and her family like a vortex. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a relentlessly judgmental Ozarks city, in the end, Hettienne believes she must make decisions that might compromise her family's financial security but will severe them from an ever more dangerous legacy. 1.
