An urban songline of New York. From the author of the memoir L Is for Lion comes a panegyric of the geology of Manhattan. These poems glitter. Manhattan schist is rendered as a template for the skyline and characters of New York. Grit and stardust collide in this debut collection of poetry and song. The book begins with the bright reflective quality of mica and ends with the gentrified vision of the city where ´´New York is nine million doors, and you have not one key´´. In between are stories of urban icons: iceman, fish peddler, heart butcher, meter maid, San Gennaro, the magic of grandmothers´ hands, the vision of the oldest living tree in the city, immigrants who fell out windows and died in explosions, Italian phrases that link the essence of the sun to a rose and to a heart, crushed tomatoes, sunsets, supermarkets, the glory of hot tar, the lessons of marines and lesbians. You will learn about history and geology, Italian American heroes, and spiritual imperatives through the syllables of this one poet´s soul. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Annie Rachele Lanzillotto.

Audie Award, Fantasy, 2013 Award-winning author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman personally selected this book, and, using the tools of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), cast the narrator and produced this work for his audiobook label, Neil Gaiman Presents. A few words from Neil on Anita: ´´Anita is an almost forgotten novel by one of the finest UK writers. But it is a favorite of mine. Anita works on two levels: on the one hand, the stories are a product of the 1960s - they come out of a swinging world and a ´´Georgy Girl´´ time, and Keith Roberts, then a young art director, has captured the feel of the sixties. At the same time, he writes about a teenage witch being brought up by her Granny; he writes about a young witch falling in love, getting her heart broken, about change and growing up and compromise, about what magic is and how you can lose it sometimes and how you can get it back. And the character of Anita´s Granny is amazing, one of Keith Roberts´ best characters…. [Anita] set the template for all the teenage witch stories that come after, and she did it better and more magically. I wanted these stories back in ´´print´´, where people could hear them and could fall in love with Anita and Granny, as I did.´´ Meet Anita Thompson: she´s young, she´s lovely, she´s clever ... and she´s a witch. A real one. Anita lives in two worlds: the modern world of supermarkets and sports cars, radio and rock & roll, where she is a thoroughly modern girl with a thoroughly modern interest in boys and fast living and her own independence. But the ancient and rustic world of traditions, cauldrons, and familiars , where she and her Granny (a witch of the Old School, broom and all) invoke elemental spirits int he service of Him Wot´s Down Under. She has senses no ordinary mortal can imagine (at least nine); with them, she can hear the voices of every creature of the night. She can changer 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicola Barber.

The three tales that make up Edgar Allan Poe´s The Dupin Mysteries introduce us to the cracking character of Chevalier Auguste Dupin. As a rationalist and practitioner of brilliant deduction, he was to become the template for most of the detective fiction that followed speedily in his wake. The first tale, ´´The Murders in the Rue Morgue´´, details a form of murder solving that was to become only too familiar. Using his extraordinary intellect, Dupin solves a seemingly baffling crime from the clues left by the perpetrator - clues overlooked by mere mortals like the police. Narrated by his friend and admirer, and documenting an eccentricity that charms the reader into liking what would otherwise be an insufferable arrogance, the stories bear the obvious mark of what was to become the most famous of detectives: Sherlock Holmes. He is very much a Poe creation, with the gore and horror of the murder details described with a relish and a realism not allowed by many other writers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Nighy.

Excerpt: C++0x (pronounced ´´see plus plus oh ex´´) is the unofficial name of the planned new standard for the C++ programming language (originally, finalization was expected in 2008 or 2009, but the ´´0x´´ was retained). C++0x is intended to replace the existing C++ standard, ISO/IEC 14882, which was published in 1998 and updated in 2003. These predecessors are informally but commonly known as C++98 and C++03. The new standard will include several additions to the core language and will extend the C++ standard library, incorporating most of the C++ Technical Report 1 (TR1) libraries most likely with the exception of the library of mathematical special functions. Since the standard is not yet finalized, this article may not reflect the most recent state of C++0x. The first working draft international standard was published in August 2010 (N3126), with the last working draft being (N3291) dated 5 April 2011. In their March 2011 meeting, the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG21 C++ Standards Committee voted C++0x (N3290) to Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) status. This means that this final draft, dated 11 April 2011, is ready for review and approval by the ISO; the final specification is expected to be published sometime in mid-2011. To be able to finish closer to schedule, the Committee decided to focus its efforts on the solutions introduced up until 2006 and ignore newer proposals. The modifications for C++ will involve both the core language and the standard library. In the development of every utility of the new standard, the committee has applied some directives: Attention to beginners is considered important, because they will always compose the majority of computer programmers, and because many beginners would not intend to extend their knowledge of , limiting themselves to operate in the aspects of the language in which they a...
