The jade-robed Buddhist priest who battled crime as the Green Lama is back! Conceived in 1939 at the behest of the editors of Munsey Publications to compete with the Shadow, the Green Lama was the creation of writer Kendell Foster Crossen, who was asked to think up a hero who could lure mystery-minded readers away from the Shadow´s loyal legion of followers. ´´The basis for the Green Lama came after I´d read a nonfiction book review in the New York Times about an American who really became a lama,´´ Crossen once recalled. ´´The book was titled The Penthouse of the Gods.´´ From that gossamer inspiration, the writer spun an outrageously unique superhero. Returning to the States, young Jethro Dumont assumed an alternative identity of a Buddhist cleric, the Reverend Dr. Pali, then began gathering about him a band of civic-minded citizens to join him in his Buddhistic battle against suffering in all forms - particularly that caused by criminals. Aiding him from the shadows was the mysterious Magga, a woman of many faces who had taken an interest in guiding the Green Lama´s campaign against malefactors. It was an outlandish concept. While the Shadow possessed the power to cloud men´s minds after his time in the East, the Green Lama relied on other even weirder powers - including the ability to become radioactive and electrically shock opponents into submission! He carried a traditional Tibetan scarf, which he employed to bind and befuddle opponents, and possessed a knowledge of vulnerable nerve centers that he put to good use in hand-to-hand combat. James C. Lewis gives a thrilling performance of the mystical Green Lama for two more exciting exploits: ´´Babies for Sale´´ and ´´The Wave of Death´´, both set in 1940 Hollywood. Om mani padme hum! The Green Lama knows! 1. Language: English. Narrator: James C. Lewis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/060817/bk_acx0_060817_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Conceived in 1939 at the behest of the editors of Munsey Publications to compete with the juggernaut that The Shadow had become in print, on radio, and in film, The Green Lama was the creation of writer Kendell Foster Crossen, who was asked to think up a hero who could lure mystery-minded readers away from The Shadow´s loyal legion of followers. Returning to the States, Dumont assumed an alternative identity of the Buddhist cleric, the Reverend Dr. Pali, then began gathering about him a band of civic-minded citizens to join him in his Buddhistic battle against suffering in all forms - particularly that caused by criminals. And aiding him from the shadows, the mysterious Magga, a woman of many faces who had taken an interest in guiding The Green Lama´s campaign against malefactors. It was an outlandish concept. While The Shadow possessed the power to cloud men´s minds after his time in the East, The Green Lama relied on other, even weirder powers - including the ability to become radioactive and electrically shock opponents into submission! He carried a traditional scarf, which he employed to bind and befuddle opponents, and possessed a knowledge of vulnerable nerve centers, which he put to good use in hand-to-hand combat. Writing as Richard Foster, Crossen produced ´´The Case of the Crimson Hand´´, which was published in the April 1940 Double Detective under the equally colorful title ´´The Green Lama´´. That first installment raised the magazine´s circulation several notches. Amazingly, the Lama was a hit. ´´The real success of the Lama was because of the mysticism,´´ Ken Crossen recalled. ´´We received a tremendous amount of mail about the Lama. His first case and its sequel, ´The Case of the Croesus of Murder´, are presented in one set, voiced by the talented Michael McConnohie. You´ll never encounter another hero anything like him. Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama knows!´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael McConnohie. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/047949/bk_acx0_047949_sample.mp3.

A master of evil came to the nation´s capital. A green-masked ambassador from Hell´s own legation, followed by a horrible horde, versed in the poison torments of the Far East! Even the police who sought to trap him, did not guess the ghastliness of his real motive. That remained for Secret Agent ´´X´´ to discover, as he prowled through a dark, and sinister labyrinth of Washington espionage. A nameless mystery man with a wartime past, backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent ´´X´´ took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. Operating out of the half-haunted Montgomery Mansion, ´´X´´ was also known as the Man of a Thousand Faces. A past master of disguise, he infiltrated the Underworld to crush crime, in all of its hideous manifestations. For Secret Agent ´´X,´´ Rose Wyn decided to pit him against villains who were maestros of unbridled horror. Melodrama was the rule of the day. But Secret Agent ´´X´´ plunged into maelstroms of raw bloodlust undreamed of by The Shadow and Doc Savage. His foes were truly depraved. Terrorists. Torturers. Kidnappers. Stranglers. Arsonists. These were the types of tabloid master criminals ´´X´´ hunted. In Ambassador of Doom, the enigmatic ´´X´´ travels to Washington, D.C., to investigate skullduggery in our nation´s capital. There, he gets on the trail of the Green Mask, a murderous master of espionage, whose ultimate loyalties are impenetrable. Before the trail of treachery has been exhausted, Secret Agent ´´X´´ will have struggled through Malay torture rites and worse, in order to preserve America´s deepest secrets from an implacable foreign foe. Ambassador of Doom was originally published in the May, 1934 Secret Agent ´´X´´ magazine and is read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

For our fifth Green Lama audiobook, we continue with our chronological readings from his classified casebook. As it happens, two of his most mystifying adventures have come around to make this a strangely satisfying listening experience. ´´The Case of the Mad Magi” was first printed in the February, 1941 issue of Munsey´s Double Detective pulp magazine. Here, author Kendell Foster Crossen exploits one of his personal areas of expertise, the exciting world of the progressional magician. These were the halcyon days of Blackstone and Dunninger. Crossen was himself an amateur magician and close friends with several like-minded others, including Walter B. Gibson and Clayton Rawson, creators of The Shadow and The Scarlet Wizard, respectively, both of whom are mentioned in this superb story. Here, The Green Lama pits his wits against an unknown magician of crime, backed up by his ever-shifting team of ordinary citizens plucked from all walks of life to assist in his investigations. What results is a riveting expose of the magical life, filled with behind-the-scenes secrets, but also packed with high drama. In past cases, Jethro Dumont, the daring American who journeyed to Tibet only to return to the U. S. as a Buddhist priest dedicated to eradicating evil and suffering - not necessarily in that order - found himself in Hollywood, delving into crimes among the stars of the Silver Screen. Here, in The Case of the Vanishing Ships Lieutenant Caraway summons him to a different Hollywood to investigate a rash of passenger liners which are going missing off the Florida coast. Vanished without any trace of passengers, crew or even floating wreckage. Is this the work of Axis U-boats, Caribbean pirates, savage criminals - or something even more malevolent? Ken Crossen brings to bear his deep knowledge of magical misdirection to pull off a plot as audacious as a stage illusionist making a full-grown elephant vanish! 1. Language: English. Narrator: James C. Lewis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/023486/bk_acx0_023486_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

12-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 220-seitigem gebundenem Buch, 307 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer ca. 933 Minuten. Das bedeutendste Einzelereignis in der Geschichte der Country Musik. ´So charakterisierte Johnny Cash die erste Aufnahmesession der Carter Family aus dem Jahre 1927, aufgenommen in Bristol, Tennessee. Diese und alle weiteren Aufnahmen der Carter Family von 1927 bis 1941 sind in dieser Box enthalten. Ihre anglo-keltischen Balladen, Mountain Songs, Blues und Popsongs der damaligen Zeit, die alle zusammen die Basis der heutigen Country-Musik bilden, so eindringlich und gefühlvoll vorgetragen, wie dies eben nur die Carter Family konnte. Die Menschen auf dem Land sind immer schon religiös und gefühlvoll gewesen´, erklärte das Familienoberhaupt der Carter Family, A.P. Die 307 Lieder in dieser, in ihrer Vollständigkeit einzigartigen 12-CD Edition belegen diese Einschätzung. Alle Aufnahmen der Carter Family für Victor, ARC, Decca, APS, Columbia, Bluebird sind hier komplett enthalten. Hören sie die Originalversionen von Klassikern wie Wildwood Flower , Wabash Cannon Ball, The Storms Are On The Ocean und natürlich Will The Circle Be Unbroken . Zahlreiche dieser Aufnahmen finden hier erstmals ihren Weg auf CD. Die Tonqualität dieser zeitlosen Klassiker konnte mittels digitaler Nachbearbeitung verbessert werden, ohne die Ursprünglichkeit des Klangs zu berühren. Alle derzeit bekannten Fotos der Carter Family sind ebenso enthalten wie Privatbilder aus Mother Maybelles Fotoalbum und aus dem Besitz von Janette Carter, davon einige bislang unveröffentlicht. Der herausragende Country Musik Historiker Charles Wolfe steuert eine neu recherchierte Biographie der Carter Family bei. ´Diese Aufnahmen sind zeitlose Wegbereiter´, schreibt Wolfe. ´Sie sind ebenso elementar wie der Wind oder das Wasser und besitzen die gleiche, simple Schönheit wie die Landschaft von Poor Valley (der Heimat der Carters). Man kann den Einfluss der Carter Family auf die Country Musik und die amerikanische Musik im Allgemeinen gar nicht hoch genug einschätzen.´ Die Box enthält ein 1963 aufgenommenes Interview von Ed Kahn und Mike Seeger mit Maybelle und Sara. Die Einleitung wurde von Johnny Cash geschrieben.
