Guy Pratt came of age just as bass playing became sexy. Having dallied with punk legend Sylvain Sylvain, Pratt suddenly found himself on Top of the Pops and supporting David Bowie with smooth Australian outfit Icehouse. He became bass player to the stars, crawling from studio to bar and hotel to stadium Portakabin with the likes of Pink Floyd, Robert Palmer, Womack &Womack and Bryan Ferry. Guy has recorded with everyone from Madonna and Michael Jackson to McFly. He was in The Smiths for a week, and has travelled through customs in a wheelchair after a flight with Jimmy Page. Following the success of his live show at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival and the subsequent sell out tour of Australia, Guy Pratt’s narrates his bestselling book, My Bass and Other Animals, a witty, revealing but heartfelt memoir of life at the pointy end of the music business. When not playing with David Gilmour or Bryan Ferry, he continues to take the show around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Pratt.

In his latest bizarre concoction, Dorsey picks up - sort of - various plot strands from his earlier books, including Florida Roadkill, Hammerhead Ranch Motel, and Orange Crush. There´s still the matter, you see, of the briefcase full of cash, and still unresolved are the stories of Serge Storms, the serial killer and history buff; Johnny Vegas, the startlingly handsome virgin; Jethro Maddox, the Hemingway look-alike; and Paul, the Passive-Aggressive Private Eye. Fans of Dorsey´s magnificently off-kilter adventures will be thrilled to rejoin these characters and to meet a host of new ones, including Mr. Granda, the leader of a down-and-out drug cartel who is looking to buy a submarine, and Ralph Krunkleton, one of America´s very worst novelists, whose novel The Stingray Shuffle features prominently in the goings-on. A brilliantly constructed romp that is part thriller, part farce, and entirely, gloriously, deliriously wacky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George K. Wilson.

Even robots can use a heart. Or heart cells, at least. A new stingray bot about the size of a penny relies on light-sensitive heart cells to swim. Zaps of light force the bot’s fins to flutter, letting researchers drive it through a watery obstacle course.´´Heart Cell Stingray Driven by Light´´ is from the August 6, 2016 issue of Science News. 1.

In 1980, Rob´s life became entwined in the midst of another clandestine operation with one key difference. That operation did not fail. It was alleged that the Russian KGB codenamed their operation ´´Stingray´´ or ´´Operation Stingray.´´ ´´Stingray´´ made it possible for the former Soviet Union and more specifically the Russian Navy to know in real time the coordinates of our ´´Fast Attack´´ Class and ´´Boomer Class´´ submarine fleet. 1.

A wild and bittersweet memoir of a classic ´70s childhood. It´s a story of the 1970s. Of a road trip in a wood-paneled station wagon, with the kids in the way-back, singing along to the Steve Miller Band. Brothers waking up early on Saturday mornings for five consecutive hours of cartoons and advertising jingles that they´ll be humming all day. A father - one of 3M´s greatest and last eight-track-salesman fathers - traveling across the country on the brand-new Boeing 747, providing for his family but wanting nothing more than to get home. It´s Steve Rushin´s story: of growing up within a ´70s landscape populated with Bic pens, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, lightsabers, and those oh-so-coveted Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes. Sting-Ray Afternoons paints an utterly fond, psychedelically vibrant, laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of an exuberant decade. With sidesplitting commentary, Rushin creates a vivid picture of a decade of wild youth, cultural rebirth, and the meaning of parental, brotherly, sisterly, whole lotta love.

´´Boy, do I have a lot to learn!´´ Anyone who´s ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind - from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop - has thought that.

I knew that there was something wrong. ´´Then the teacher showed up. I didn´t ask for him. I didn´t think I needed him. And all he said he could teach me was ´nothing´. ´´What happened next, you may not believe...I sure didn´t...but that didn´t stop him.´´ The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about Life, Music, and the Life of Music.

A decade worth of research and development went into the creation of a new prototype warship. New propulsion system twice an order of magnitude faster than current hyper-drives. New weapons, capable of leveling a planet. New shielding, able to withstand barrage after barrage. Her name: Stingray. And she was gone, in a blink of an eye. Five years prior, the governments of planet after planet voted in favor of being governed by a dozen of the universe´s most powerful corporations. The self-governing Planetary Alliance silently fell, replaced by The Conglomerate. They wanted change. One planet stood alone: Earth had seen her fair share of change and wanted no part of it. Capt. Reginald Epsilon saw the writing on the wall. Refusing to recognize his new commanders and facing court martial and prison, he disappeared without a trace. When Stingray went missing, an all out manhunt for Epsilon was on. Stopping at nothing, Admiral Roth ruthlessly used Epsilon´s XO and protégé, the stunning Lt. Jessie Smythe, and her little sister Maggie as pawns. Can he save Maggie and prevent the most powerful warship in the universe from falling into corrupt hands, hands hell bent on destroying Earth? 1.

The Ghost Squad is a combat-hardened special force trained to operate behind enemy lines. Its mission this time is to find a renegade American with an Australian accent, code-named Stingaree, who is sending information via short-wave to the Japanese regarding American troop movements. The idea is to capture the man and remove him from New Guinea and replace him with a look-alike imposter who will transmit erroneous info to the Japanese. This is vital, so that U.S. forces can land troops in Dutch New Guinea with a minimum of casualties. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jerry Sciarrio.
