Tom Swift and His Aerial Warship, volume 18 in the Tom Swift series, finds our hero building an airship - but not just any airship: this is a battleship of the air, complete with cannons, bombs, and able to stay in the air for at least two weeks on a single tank of gas. Remeber that this book was written just prior to World War I, and although Europe was embroiled in a war, the United States was uncommitted. You can imagine how handy this battleship of the air would be to the warning nations. It is no surprise that the Swift shops are soon infested with spies and evildoers bent on stealing Tom's ideas, and even better yet, his airship. Will the forces of evil steal Tom's airship and his ideas? Tune in and find out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Michaels.

In a floating realm of airships and steam, a hero will rise…quite literally. Resolved to solve the mystery of his uncle’s death, 18-year-old Nikolas Scribus commandeers his grandfather’s airship and sails through the skies to bring his uncle’s murderer to justice. But his journey isn’t easy, as he has to find favor with forgotten friends, pontificate with pilfering pirates, put up with prideful protectors, and avoid falling in love with a furtive female. (Not to mention get involved in a coup that plans to take over the city before the end of the week. It’s a lot to do by anyone’s pocket watch!) All the while, a mysterious monster named Blackout, known to destroy entire cities in a single night, is threatening to break free of the protectors’ control and wreak havoc on the realm. Will Scribus survive long enough to find his uncle’s murderer? What will he do when he confronts the person responsible for his uncle’s death? The sky’s the limit in Darknight Rebellion. Warning: This book does not feature a "happy" ending as it isn't the end. It is one of 13 books under development following 13 characters. Enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Sweeney-Bear.

Stranger and even more compelling than his best-selling Ghost of Flight 401, journalist John G. Fuller turns his talents to the historic crash of the great British dirigible R 101, the luxury lighter-than-air behemoth that was to revolutionize travel in the 1930's. Two days after the crash, through a séance, the dead commander of the airship recounted in horrible detail the anguished end of the R 101 and its crew. According to Charles H. Gibbs-Smith formerly Lindbergh Professor of Aerospace History, National Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian Institution) 'This book had to be written...It will become a prime source for evidence of human survival after death.' The complex and absolutely spell-binding tale begins in 1928 when a monoplane carrying famed World War I ace Captain Raymond Hinchliffe and his copilot, the flamboyant heiress-actress Elsie Mackay, vanishes without a trace over the stormy Atlantic. As news of the disappearance makes front-page headlines around the world, British workers race to complete the largest and most advanced airship yet designed, the monumental R 101. Neither medium Eileen Garrett's terrifying pre-vision of a dirigible tragedy, nor an even more fearful warning from the dead Captain Hinchliffe to another mystic, Mrs. Earl, are held as grounds for delaying the much-publicized takeoff of the R 101 for India. Finally, in a séance that includes both women and the world-famous author Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes), Hinchliffe warns the navigator of the R 101 of its various structural problems. Despite these warnings, the 777-foot R 101 takes off on schedule -- and plunges to the ground on the French side of the Channel, killing all but six of the fifty-four aboard. But the disaster does not mark the end of his mind-boggling tale. Bristling with suspense and astonishing evidence concerning the validity of psychic phenomena, THE AIRMEN WHO WOULD NOT DIE is a riveting account of a human tragedy and the superhuman events surrounding it.
