For Gervase Phinn growing old is not about a leisurely walk to the pub for a game of dominoes or snoozing in his favourite armchair. As this sparkling collection of his very best humorous writing shows, he may be ‘out of the woods’ but he is certainly not ‘over the hill’. Looking back over more than sixty years of family life, teaching, inspecting schools, writing and public speaking, Gervase never fails to unearth humour, character, warmth and wisdom from the most diverse of experiences, whether they be growing up in Rotherham with the most un-Yorkshire like of names or describing why loud mobile phone users get his goat. Brimming with nostalgia, gently mocking life’s absurdities, never shy of an opinion, this is Gervase Phinn at his wittiest, twinkly-eyed best. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gervase Phinn.

Harm none, and be ready for zombies. In the little town of Brighton, Amelia´s practice of Wicca has always marked her as odd. But Amelia can´t change what she is. Knowing how to see auras, heal, and create spells comes naturally to her. Only Madame Knightly, the ancient matriarch and owner of Witch Wood Estate to whom Amelia plays caretaker, doesn´t seem to mind her conjoining. In fact, the crumbling old mansion is full oddities. When modern treatments fail to make a dent in the flu outbreak sweeping the globe, those who once ridiculed her white witchcraft turn to Amelia for help. While her eucalyptus tinctures prove no more effective than Western medicine, her spell-casting is another matter. The residents of Brighton soon depend on the very magic they once ridiculed to save their lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kristin James.

Dating to 1899, Brother Ward offers this masonic sermon. He examines God´s role in a mason´s life. He makes a connection between the passage, ´´[L]et there be light´´ in the book of Genesis and the ´´more light´´ that Freemasons seek. He ties in morality with this light and discusses charity at some length. He also discusses how darkness may cause a mason to fail at achieving a moral life and emphasizes the importance of the Bible in a mason´s life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Wood.
