Batman: Knightfall (BBC Audio)

October 5, 2008

On CD for the first time, this fantastic full-cast radio adventure comes from esteemed producer Dirk Maggs, director of Superman: Doomsday and Beyond and the recent radio episodes of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Batman has been crippled by his fiercest foe ever, Bane: a villain of superhuman strength, cunning and evil. With Bruce Wayne confined to a wheelchair, who will protect the innocent from the dangerous inmates of Arkham Asylum, whom Bane has released?

This stunning audio production was first aired on BBC Radio 1. The cliffhanging, all-action adventure can now be heard uninterrupted – dazzling sound effects, specially composed orchestral music and all. You’ve never heard a comic sound like this!
With Bruce Wayne confined to a wheelchair, who will protect the innocent people of Gotham?

Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space by Carl Sagan (Audio Book and E-Book)

October 3, 2008

From Publishers Weekly
In a tour of our solar system, galaxy and beyond, Cornell astronomer Sagan meshes a history of astronomical discovery, a cogent brief for space exploration and an overview of life-from its origins in the oceans to humanity’s first emergence to a projected future where humans “terraform” and settle other planets and asteroids, Earth having long been swallowed by the sun. Maintaining that such relocation is inevitable, the author further argues that planetary science is of practical utility, fostering an interdisciplinary approach to looming environmental catastrophes such as “nuclear winter” (lethal cooling of Earth after a nuclear war, a widely accepted prediction first calculated by Sagan in 1982). His exploration of our place in the universe is illustrated with photographs, relief maps and paintings, including high-resolution images made by Voyager 1 and 2, as well as photos taken by the Galileo spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope and satellites orbiting Earth, which show our planet as a pale blue dot. A worthy sequel to Sagan’s Cosmos.
