Will you press into heaven at the expense of Earth? It has been said that revivals are born after midnight. This is not because midnight is a magic hour - it isn´t - but because anyone truly desiring renewal doesn´t tire at seeking it. Born After Midnight stirs us toward renewal. Be it in the realm of money, worship, worry, or prayer, A. W. Tozer applies God´s high wisdom to our everyday living to show sin bitter and Christ sweet, helping us crave heaven and lose our taste for the world. If you will take God for who he says he is, trust his promises as true, and forsake the world in clutching for heaven, it will cost you everything. But it will give you eternity. Born After Midnight invites you to seek what cannot be lost. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hove/001661/bk_hove_001661_sample.mp3.

High Midnight is a modern day supernatural Western set against a preternatural backdrop. It is a surreal trip into a world of fanciful cryptid-creatures - a menagerie of monstrosities that literally crawl from a crater perched at the mouth of Hell. The ´Devil´s Outhouse´ emits both a stink and an allure for vagrants, vagabonds and those wishing to be lost or forgotten - or simply left alone. It is the perfect place to build a nowhere town. Welcome to Unity, Texas. Population: Bizarre. The only thing protecting the residents of Unity from a stream of nightmares is Laredo Beaumont, the town´s hard-drinking, ass-kicking sheriff, and Cicero, his knife-wielding chimpanzee deputy. It´s a thankless job that leaves Laredo drained and nearly broken. The only solace he can find is in the arms of his beloved Sally Mae, a ghostly soiled dove from a phantom bordello where only the most daring of men would think to step foot. But midnight is fast approaching Unity, leaving Laredo to face not only creatures from Hell and the walking dead, but a band of homicidal clowns who have their own score to settle. A gonzo pulp Western for the 21st Century, High Midnight is a timeless tale of blood and redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernard Setaro Clark.

By the light of day, the world seems pleasant and safe. We tell ourselves we are the top of the life chain, the ultimate evolved species. When the sun sets and menacing eyes open, the lie is over. Our laughable dominance over the earth fades behind the veil of night. Beneath quiet and gloomy skies, rotten fingers claw upward from the cold ground. Coffin lids squeal. The lunatics in dank cells cackle the hymns of hell. Torturous nightmares rage in innocent minds devouring hope and sanity. Blades of vengeance harvest false justice among the guiltless. And the claws of forgotten beasts kill without reason. They Come at Midnight...to feed...and to bring us to our knees in serve to their dark masters. At the final toll of the bell, the wicked hunt begins, and there is no hope for our survival. Everette Bell brings us twelve tales of screaming terror in the tradition of scratchy radio dramas, black and white drive-in movies, and low budget video cassettes. Feel the breath of death on your neck as you read the tolling tales of the midnight hour of doom. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Wehrlen.
