Beacon Audiobooks Releases "British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Diana, Princess of Wales"

Beacon Audiobooks releases "British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Diana, Princess of Wales", narrated by Chris Marsden, which is the newest audiobook in the Charles Rivers Editors' British Legends series. Now available worldwide.

"Anywhere I see suffering, that is where I want to be, doing what I can." —Diana A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' British Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of Great Britain's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.

 Born in 1961, the woman who would become Princess of Wales and one of the most famous people in the world was literally nameless for a week. Expecting a boy, the parents finally came to grips with the fact that she was a girl and eventually named her Diana. Fittingly, even though Diana had been born into one of Britain's most historic and prominent families, the world came to know her better for her first name than her last name, Spencer.

Diana's first brush with Prince Charles came when the prince was dating her older sister, but the world met Lady Diana after Charles began courting her from 1980-81. The two were married in the most famous and watched wedding of the 20th century, with nearly 750,000 tuning and over half a million standing outside to see the Royal Wedding. From then on, Diana became one of the most famous people in the world, with every step she took and every decision she made heavily scrutinized across the world. Though she stayed busy with international charities, human rights work, being a mother, and all of the necessities being part of the Royal Family required, Diana remained a tabloid fixture all the while. Thanks to her fame, the life and tragic death of "Princess Di" are known the world over, and despite all of the controversies that swirled around her during her final years - she was considered a saint by some and a traitor to the established order by others - Diana nevertheless remains one of the most famous and popular Britons in history.

Beacon Audiobooks has just released "British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Diana, Princess of Wales" in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and Audible.com.

Narrated by Chris Marsden and written by Charles Rivers' Editors, this book is a must have for everyone. Download your copy today!

Beacon Audiobooks Releases American Legends: The Three Stooges Now Available Worldwide

Beacon Audiobooks releases American Legends: The Three Stooges, narrated by Morley Shulman, which is the newest audiobook in the Charles Rivers Editors' American Legends series. Now available worldwide.

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.  There has been no shortage of comedy acts in American history, but the most famous and popular of them all is The Three Stooges, an act that has become synonymous with slapstick.

Bring up their name to any American or even ask about slapstick comedy, and invariably, certain images will come to mind, most of which came from the comedy shorts featuring three bumbling but likeable fools getting into all sorts of trouble due to their inability to think or behave properly.

The Three Stooges had several lineups over the decades, but two of them are most closely associated with the act. Two of the Howard brothers, Moe and Shemp, had their origins in 1920s vaudeville along with Larry Fine, but after Shemp quit, he was replaced by his younger brother Curly. Moe, Larry and Curly quickly became a hit in comedy shorts on screen, and even as other similar acts like Abbot and Costello went on to make full length films, the Stooges continued to star in shorts, producing the iconic scenes that everyone associates with them, from Larry asking what he did wrong to Moe trying to hit Curly and Curly’s efforts to block him.

Beacon Audiobooks has just released American Legends: The Three Stooges in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and Audible.com.

Narrated by Morley Shulman who brings The Three Stooges to life, and listening is sure to thrill fans of these American Icons.

Master of Horror/NY Times Best-Selling Author Clive Barker Signs With Beacon Audio Books

Master of Horror/NY Times Best-Selling Author Clive Barker Signs With Beacon Audio Books to produce, narrate and distribute two works, "Incarnations" and "Forms of Heaven".

Clive Barker is a New York Times Best-Selling author, film director, video game designer and visual artist best known for his work in both fantasy and horror. Barker came to prominence in the mid-1980s with a series of show stories which established him as a leading young horror writer. He has since written many novels and other works, and his fiction has been adapted into films, notably the incredibly popular Hellraiser and Candyman series.



Barker's distinctive writing style is characterised by the notion of hidden fantastical worlds coexisting with our own, the role of sexuality in the supernatural, and the construction of coherent, complex and detailed universes. Barker has referred to this style as "dark fantasy" or the "fantastique". His stories are notable for a deliberate blurring of the distinction between binary opposites such as Hell and Heaven, or pleasure and pain (the latter particularly so in The Hellbound Heart).

When the Books of Blood were first published in the United States in paperback, Stephen King was quoted on the book covers: "I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker."

A critically acclaimed author, artist, film director and producer, Clive Barker is iconic in the world of horror and dark fantasy. He has now teamed up with Beacon Audio Books to produce, narrate and distribute two incredible books, "Incarnations" and "Forms of Heaven". These wildly popular works will be relished by Clive Barker fans who love the wicked imagination of one of the best-known fantasy/horror writers of all time.

Look for these Clive Barker audiobooks in the Fall of 2014.

Matthew Modine Talks Full Metal Jacket Audiobook On The Today Show

Celebrities are the new rock stars of audiobooks. Just look at the big winners at last month's Audies, known as the Oscars of the audiobook industry: Billy Crystal and Pete Seeger, each of whom voiced their own publications. And they're not even the tip of the iceberg: Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry, Kristen Bell and dozens of other stars are lending their talents to audiobook readings.

“It’s a combination of a couple of things,” says Publishers Weekly editorial director Jim Milliot.

“A lot more books are available by digital download, because they’re cheaper to produce. They've got the knack of doing these at a much lower cost now, so in some ways it really is the golden age of audiobooks.” Revenue for audiobooks has grown 12 percent since 2008, according to a recent IBIS World Study, making it a $1.6 billion industry, and the Audio Publishing Association reported that the number of published titles has nearly doubled in 2013. But using a celebrity to provide the voice lends the production an extra boost.

Matthew Modine has read other peoples’ audiobooks before, but lately has been focusing on his own project: A reading of his collected diary entries from his time filming Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.” Initially he’d thought about getting another actor with a younger-sounding voice to tell the tale (Modine is 55; he was in his mid-20s when he made the movie). But the audiobook’s producer, Adam Rackoff, convinced him otherwise.

“He thought it would be more compelling to the audience to have the person who wrote the diary bring those words to life,” Modine recalls. “And, hopefully, a greater selling point.” The audiobook is coming out through Beacon Audiobooks.
