Summary

A Comic Book Artist and Musician... 
  
Her Beach-Cutie Crush... 
  
A Halloween Party... 
  
And a Spell Gone Wrong... 
  
Welcome to the Midnight Masquerade! 
  
When Max left home Halloween night, she expected to do a little busking down by the beach. Maybe make a few dollars. See a few awesome costumes... and maybe, just maybe, work up the courage to ask her celebrity-lookalike crush out. To help boost her confidence, she even dressed up as her comic book demon-hunting creation. She expected to get a few compliments; she never expected she'd literally become the character. 
  
But when a spell goes awry turning people into their costumes and bringing Halloween decorations to life, it's up to Max and her crush, Theo, to uncover what's going on. 
  
It's a night of surprises, both good and bad. But with Theo there, Max is sure to come out on top! 
  
---

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was the pre-eminent figure in late nineteenth century detective fiction. A physician by profession, he soon found such popularity as a writer of detective stories that his writing was far more profitable than his medical practice. 
    The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle is a classic Sherlock Holmes story in which the Commissionnaire brings Holmes a hat and a goose which have been dropped by a man on the street, during an attempted mugging. Holmes is able to make some deductions about the mystery man from his hat - but it is the goose which provides the biggest mystery. 
    When the Commissionnaire takes it home to roast, his wife discovers a rare blue diamond in the bird's crop. Not just any diamond... the famous blue carbuncle which was recently stolen in a daring burglary at a smart London hotel. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson set to work at once to solve the case.

    A hypnotic collection of speculative fiction about compassion, love, and human resilience in the technological hyper-age, from Alexander Weinstein, author of Children of the New World. 
    Universal Love welcomes listeners to a near-future world where our everyday technologies have fundamentally altered the possibilities and limits of how we love one another. In these gripping stories, a young boy tries to understand what keeps his father tethered to the drowned city they call home. A daughter gets to know her dead mother's hologram better than she ever knew her living mother. And, at a time when unpleasant memories can be erased, a man undergoes electronic surgery to have his depression, and his past, forever removed. 
    In an age when technology offers the easiest cures for loneliness, the characters within these stories must wrestle with what it means to stay human in an increasingly cybernetic future, and how love can endure even the most alluring upgrades. 
    In the vein of Weinstein’s critically-acclaimed first collection, Universal Love is a visionary audiobook, written with one foot in the real world and one stepping bravely into the future.

    When real life husband and wife George Burns and Gracie Allen worked together in vaudeville, George was the comic and his wife Gracie had the straight lines. They switched their roles upon discovering that Gracie's delivery got a bigger laugh than George's punch lines.The duo became a big hit on vaudeville and in films so when radio beckoned, they delivered. Their first regular radio work was as supporting players on CBS's The Guy Lombardo Show in the 1930s. When Lombardo switched to NBC, George and Gracie took over the show. Early on, the two did not play a married couple on the air. For a long time, they continued a 'flirtation act' with George as Gracie's most persistent suitor.But when the show's ratings began to sag toward the end of the 1930s, George decided it was time their real-life marriage was written into the show. The new format included husband-and-wife characters in a situation comedy setting. George's instincts were spot-on and The Burns & Allen Show went on to new heights, eventually making a successful transition to television.

    This somewhat unpleasant tale, published as a novelette in the "Smart Set" in July 1920, relates a series of events that took place in the spring of the previous year. Each of the three events made a great impression upon F. Scott Fitzgerald. In life they were unrelated, except by the general hysteria of that spring which inaugurated the Age of Jazz, but in this story, he has tried to weave them into a pattern—a pattern which would give the effect of those months in New York as they appeared to at least one member of what was then the younger generation.
