What makes a penguin a bird? Is a camel more closely related to a horse than to a giraffe? Why is a whale not a fish? Similar puzzles preoccupied Charles Darwin throughout his life. Whimsy, in the playfulness of stories for children, is a way to appreciate Darwinian histories. In Do Elephants Have Knees? Charles R. Ault Jr. uses the fanciful imagery of story to explain Darwinian thought. At the same time, he launches careful consideration of Darwin´s humanity, the origins of his curiosity, and the reach of his ideas. Ault´s approach illustrates the value of story form in learning science, and provides a wealth of resources for enriching courses that focus on Darwin´s ideas. ´´Good storytelling mines curiosity,´´ Ault writes, ´´and exuberant playfulness enriches a disciplined study of science.´´ 1.

Back in 2011 when Tom Brown asked me to pick the series that would best launch the Will Murray Pulp Classics line of audiobooks, that was an easy one: The Spider! Nothing screamed pulp action like the Master of Men. Since then, we´ve released stories from different years. A new question has been raised: Where does an interested customer start if he or she is new to the Spider? That was a puzzler. So we recorded a new release - the perfect entry point for old and new Spider fans alike. Ripped from the March 1934 issue of the magazine, Citadel of Hell was the sixth Spider novel Novell W. Page penned, and one of his early tours de force. It opens with a wild car chase through the canyons of Manhattan that leads to the first of several running battles in which Richard Wentworth, both in and out of his Spider disguise, takes on Red Mask and his Food Destroyers as they bring New York City to its knees through a vicious campaign of arson and starvation. This is the novel that introduced the Depression-era character of Tito Caliepi, the hunchbacked street-corner violinist disguise that over the next year or so of the series metamorphosed into the twisted, fearsome figure of the Spider who terrorized the underworld for ten unrelenting years. So if you´ve never listened to a Spider audiobook - even if you have - and you´re looking to jump aboard, we highly recommend Citadel of Hell, one of the great fast-moving Spider novels of 1934. For this special occasion, we told voice actor Nick Santa Maria to crank it up and give it his all. And he sure does! This exciting audiobook also includes two short stories, ´´Killer´s Knout´´ by Anson Hatch and G. T. Fleming Roberts´ ´´The Standing Corpse´´. Citadel of Hell is an unforgettable excursion into the righteous madness that was the Spider, Master of Men! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Santa Maria.
