For millennia, the rituals of death and remembrance have been fixed by time and location, but in the 21st century, grieving has become a virtual phenomenon. Today, the dead live on through social media profiles, memorial websites, and saved voicemails that can be accessed at any time. This dramatic cultural shift has made the physical presence of death secondary to the psychological experience of mourning. Virtual Afterlives investigates emerging popular bereavement traditions. Author Candi K. Cann examines new forms of grieving and evaluates how religion and the funeral industry have both contributed to mourning rituals despite their limited ability to remedy grief. As grieving traditions and locations shift, people are discovering new ways to memorialize their loved ones. Bodiless and spontaneous memorials like those at the sites of the shootings in Aurora and Newtown and the Boston Marathon bombing, as well as roadside memorials, car decals, and tattoos are contributing to a new bereavement language that crosses national boundaries and culture-specific perceptions of death. Examining mourning practices in the United States in comparison to the broader background of practices in Asia and Latin America, Virtual Afterlives seeks to resituate death as a part of life and mourning as a unifying process that helps to create identities and narratives for communities. As technology changes the ways in which we experience death, this engaging study explores the culture of bereavement and the ways in which it, too, is being significantly transformed. The book is published by University Press of Kentucky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lesley Ann Fogle. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/067898/bk_acx0_067898_sample.mp3.

It was a warm summer morning when the dead began to rise up and feast upon the living. The city was overrun in a matter of hours. The military acted immediately. They closed all the exits leading out of the area in order to contain the outbreak. They shot anyone trying to escape. Their methods were successful. The outbreak was contained, but all hope for the people trapped behind the gates... had been lost. The EPUA website was the only form of communication still available to the survivors. It was there that the legend of the General began to take root. He was a hero that fought back against the zombies... a hero that saved lives. The survivors once again found something to believe in, but the rest of the world wondered if the man truly existed. They were about to find out. The 15 minutes of footage was leaked onto the internet only minutes after it was filmed. It showed a single man standing between a horde of zombies and a group of frightened survivors. What happened next was amazing... and it made the world believe. Because within those 15 minutes of footage, the man known only as the General stepped out of legend and entered reality. This is his story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Michael Higgins. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/031129/bk_acx0_031129_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

This is the third installment in the memoirs of the Georgian Englishman, Thomas Flashman, which were recently discovered on a well-known auction website. Thomas is the uncle of the notorious Victorian rogue, Harry Flashman, whose memoirs have already been published, edited by George MacDonald Fraser. Thomas shares many of the family traits, particularly the ability to find himself reluctantly at the sharp end of many major events of his age. While many people have written books and novels on the Peninsular War, Thomas Flashman´s memoirs offer a unique perspective. They include new accounts of famous battles, but also incredible incidents and characters almost forgotten by history. Flashman is revealed as the catalyst to one of the greatest royal scandals of the 19th century, which disgraced a prince and ultimately produced one of our greatest novelists. In Spain and Portugal, he witnesses catastrophic incompetence and incredible courage in equal measure. He is present at an extraordinary action where a small group of men stopped the army of a French marshal in its tracks. His flatulent horse may well have routed a Spanish regiment, while his cowardice and poltroonery certainly saved the British army from a French trap. Accompanied by Lord Byron´s dog, Flashman faces death from Polish lancers and a vengeful Spanish midget, not to mention finding time to perform a blasphemous act with the famous Maid of Zaragoza. This is an account made more astonishing as the key facts are confirmed by various historical sources. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Henry Clore Harrison.
