The Romance of Modern Locomotion by Archibald Williams ~ Full Audiobook

10h 33m · Published 15 Feb 16:00
The Romance of Modern Locomotion by Archibald Williams audiobook. In the following pages we shall peep into the history of typical companies in Great Britain, the United States, and elsewhere; consider the various forms of traction, signals, and other mechanical appliances connected with the working of a railway; notice the effects of railway communication on a country for its peaceful development, or its conquest in war; and make the tour of a typical locomotive factory. These and other matters have been treated as simply as may be, but with sufficient fullness to give the reader a fair idea of what the railway really is, how it has been made, and what the future may have in store for it.

The Romance of Mining by Archibald Williams ~ Full Audiobook

11h 38m · Published 15 Feb 13:00
The Romance of Mining by Archibald Williams audiobook. Any writer on mining in its general aspect is, when casting about for a starting-point, driven to express what others have said before him-that the history of mining is the history of civilization. The following pages, while touching on the chief branches of the mining industry, must necessarily omit reference to many of the great treasure-houses of the world. Special prominence has been given to the precious metals, because their discovery and working has witnessed the most stirring scenes in mining life. We have the whole world to roam over; so excursions are made into those spots where typical or prominent instances of mining of various minerals are to be found. Learn more about your ad choices.

Three Midnight Stories by Alexander W. Drake ~ Full Audiobook

1h 42m · Published 12 Feb 19:00
Three Midnight Stories by Alexander W. Drake audiobook. Alexander W. Drake was a well-regarded illustrator and engraver, spending much of his career at the vaunted Scribner's Monthly magazine (which would become The Century magazine eventually). What many were not aware of is that Drake also produced three short stories, printed in The Century over the course of a couple months, that captured a strange and otherworldly beauty in the human condition. A man obsessed with designing the perfect haunted house. A curious vehicle built to capture a most exquisite fleeting moment of beauty. A songbird in a cage that takes flight through happenstance but to arrive later a miracle. These stories show a true talent that never fully realized his potential. Still what we are left with are odd and entrancing pieces suitable to strike an atmosphere of mystery and wonder. Also included in this collection are appreciations by peers of Drake as well as two poems he published during roughly the same time as the stories included. Learn more about your ad choices.

Bucking the Tiger by Achmed Abdullah ~ Full Audiobook

4h 43m · Published 12 Feb 16:00
Bucking the Tiger by Achmed Abdullah audiobook. A group of down-and-outers decide on the ultimate gamble: they will bankroll one of themselves, chosen by lot, to live well for a year. Then the one chosen must commit suicide after that year, so that the others can cash in on his life insurance policy. Complications arise when the 'lucky winner' finds an unexpected turn in his fortunes. How can he get out of it with his honor intact, or will he 'welch' on the deal? 'Bucking the tiger' refers to the game of Faro, one of the most popular card games played in saloons and gambling halls in the 1800s. The name is thought to have come from early card backs that featured a drawing of a Bengal tiger. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
