The first biography of one of the most fascinating, complex, and polarizing legends of cinema’s golden age, Charlton Heston, from the bestselling, prize-winning author of Cary Grant, Walt Disney, and American Rebel.With unforgettable performances such as Moses in The Ten Commandments, the anguished astronaut George Taylor in 1968’s Planet of the Apes, and the eponymous Ben-Hur—for which he won an Academy Award—Charlton Heston cemented his place in the pantheon of twentieth-century Hollywood royalty. But his fame as an actor was matched by his political activism. A democrat in his early years, Heston became a staunch supporter of Richard Nixon and Reagan republicanism. He was also president of the National Rifle Association—an outspoken crusader for gun rights whose incendiary words, “from my cold, dead hands” incensed liberals and became a maxim for Second Amendment supporters.At long last, New York Times bestselling author Marc Eliot tells the story of Heston’s life and six-decade-long career in full detail. Granted exclusive access to Heston’s diaries, letters, and personal estate, Eliot skillfully unfolds the complicated story of this iconic actor, illuminating his greatest achievements as well as his greatest failures and regrets. Eliot examines how a boy from backwoods Michigan became Hollywood’s leading heroic actor—a star who not only battled for the plumiest roles, but to maintain his identity in the dreamscape of Tinseltown. As he lays bare this intriguing figure’s life, Eliot exposes the dirty world of Hollywood mythmaking and Heston’s crucial role in it.Illustrated with never-before-seen photos from the actor’s family, Eliot’s moving, artful, and honest biography pays tribute to this movie legend and reveals not only how Heston’s famous persona came into being, but why. Shedding new light on one of America’s greatest stars, Eliot creates an incisive and compelling portrait for both longtime fans and a generation newly discovering the storied star.Available Formats: Download, MP3 CD20.4 hrs • Mar/07/2017 • Unabridged

Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling audiobook from Dr. Stephen C. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design (ID) based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way, Meyer argues that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID. If you enjoyed Francis Collins’s The Language of God, you’ll find much to ponder—about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design—in Signature in the Cell.Available Formats: Download, MP3 CD18.5 hrs • Dec/19/2016 • Unabridged
Dante’s Inferno, his depiction of hell, was written while Europe was suffering through war, famine, the corruption of the Church, and the evils of the pogrom—the brutal massacre of countless Jews. Shortly after Dante’s passing, the black plague killed off half the world’s population, an end-of-days-like event that birthed a legend depicted in paintings and dance: the Grim Reaper. What few people know is that Dante’s poem draws inspiration from the Zohar, an ancient text that warns that the true end of days will be brought on by the corruption of man after events on the twenty-third day of Elul—a date equating to September 11th, 2001. One person that does know is Mary Klipot, a biohazard level-four scientist. She sees historical parallels between the lack of morality that corrupted Europe preceding the black death and the present-day greed that has mired our own society in economic collapse and seemingly endless wars. And she sees an opportunity to carry out God’s work. She injects herself with Scythe, a swift-acting version of the black death, and diligently spreads the infection throughout Manhattan. The threat of a worldwide pandemic forces officials to seal off the island at a time when world leaders have gathered at the UN.One-armed and shell-shocked Iraq vet Patrick Shepherd may be able to stop her. But first he’ll have to find his family somewhere in the plague-ravaged city, and outrun the Grim Reaper himself. Meticulously researched and written in a voice reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy, End of Days is the first book in a planned series best described as The Stand meets Dante’s Inferno.Available Formats: Download, MP3 CD20.0 hrs • Dec/06/2016 • Unabridged
