Netflix´s BoJack Horseman has quickly become one of the most critically acclaimed animated comedy series. Set in a world where talking animals live and work alongside humans, the show follows washed-up horse actor BoJack Horseman as he attempts to turn his life around. Back in the nineties, BoJack enjoyed a starring turn as a surrogate father to three children on the sitcom Horsin´ Around. But when the show ended, his curmudgeonly and self-destructive ways soon transformed him from media darling into has-been punchline.
This beautiful book charts the development of the circus as an art form around the world, from antiquity to the present day. Using over 200 circus related artworks from the French National Library´s private collections, celebrated cultural historian Pascal Jacob tells the story of travelling entertainers and their art and trade. From nomadic animal tamers of the Dark Ages to European jugglers and acrobats of the 1800s, from the use of the circus as Soviet propaganda to the 20th-century Chinese performance art renaissance, this is an exhaustive history with a uniquely international scope. Jacob draws on both rare and famous artworks, including prints dating from the 13th century, and paintings by Picasso and Doré. In doing so he demonstrates the circus to be a visual and physical masterpiece, constantly moving and evolving, and just as exciting an experience for audiences now as it was 1,000 years ago.

Dr. Moreau, misunderstood and hounded by the London medical community, retreats to a Pacific island to continue his experiments. The goal: nothing less than to surgically rebuild animals into the shape of men and to teach them the meaning of humanity. ´´What is the law? Not to eat flesh or fish, that is the law; are we not men? What is the law? Not to chase other men, that is the law; are we not men?´´ As castaway Edward Prendick learns, Moreau is a feared, wrathful ´´god´´ to his beastmen. And in comparing Moreau to his lumbering, gentle servant M´Ling, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is the man, and which is the beast. Wells´ classic shocker raises the question of what it means to be human. ´´Pain...is such a little thing´´. Herbert George Wells is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking science fiction (The Time Machine) and social commentary (The Shape of Things to Come), but his place in horror fiction is assured by his novella ´´The Island of Dr. Moreau´´. This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization of a classic story from one of the masters of the genre. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas E. Fuller, Doug Kaye, Bill Jackson.

For years, the vampire family lived in the shadows, hidden by the night and people´s disbelief; feeding on animals or throw away people who would never be missed. But as the family moves into an old theater, and uses it to cover up their crimes, the youngest of them are restless and determined to live as they like. Recklessly. Killing and feeding when and where they want. Feeding on who they want. Only the parent vampires have managed to keep them in check. But no longer. Unaware of the night stalking menace, the townspeople of Summer Haven, Florida, blithely go about their daily lives until, one by one, they begin to disappear. Screams are heard in the night. Fear grows. The lost are never found... alive. But Jenny Lacey and her father, who are hired to renovate the old Grand Theater, can´t escape when they find themselves caught up in the middle of the vampire´s war. And, in the end, it´s up to Jenny, her brother, Joey, and her ex-husband, Jeff (who she still loves and reconnects with in this audiobook… happy ending there), to get rid of the bloodthirsty fiends that are destroying their town… if they can. 1.
