The Voice From the Edge

The Voice From the Edge is a series of audiobooks collecting short stories written and narrated by American author Harlan Ellison. The first two volumes were published by Fantastic Audio; the uploading of these audio books to a newsgroup on the internet led to a court case to decide the liability of a service provider according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The fourth volume was published by Audible. Stories collected in these audio books include some of Ellison's best known works, from his earliest publications, from the 1950s, to his more recent, published in the early to late 2000s. Ellison as an audio actor/reader has been nominated for a Grammy Award twice and has won several Audie Awards. Reviews of these collections praise Ellison's skilled narration; the Voice From the Edge, Vol.1: I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, released in 1999. John DeNardo of Kirkus Reviews mentioned this album for "anyone who can read more than 10 books in a month" as a supplement to his list of "10 Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books For January 2012".

Ellison won a Bram Stoker Award for this collection. Track Listing Introduction to I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream "Repent, Harlequin!" Said the Ticktockman The Lingering Scent of Woodsmoke Laugh Track The Time of the Eye The Very Last Day of a Good Woman Paladin of the Lost Hour A Boy and His Dog Grail The Voice From the Edge, Vol.2: Midnight in the Sunken Cathedral, released in 2001, was reviewed by Kat Hooper of Fantasy Literature, who stated, "if there’s anything that Harlan Ellison does better than write great stories, it’s narrate them", although she warns that some of the stories, though thought-provoking, are unpleasant to hear. The stories were written between 1956 and 1995. Track Listing In Lonely Lands S. R. O. Midnight in the Sunken Cathedral The End of the Time of Leinard Pennies, Off a Dead Man's Eyes Rat Hater Go Toward the Light Soft Monkey Jeffty is Five Prince Myshkin, Hold the Relish The Function of Dream Sleep The Function of Dream Sleep, post script The Voice From the Edge, Vol.3: Pretty Maggie Moneyeyes, released in 2009, was once again reviewed by Kat Hooper.

She extols Ellison's storytelling skills, while warning that some of the stories are "gross". This volume was published by Audio Literature. Volume three is notable in that—apart from the new introductions or afterwords in each collection—it contains the first essay in these Ellison Audio book collections, it contains a reading by another author, Robert Bloch done for a vinyl record album released by the Harlan Ellison Record Collection, in the late 1970s. Bloch's story, A Toy for Juliette, is included because the story on the next track is Ellison's continuation of the plot.

Czechs and Slovaks in Bulgaria

Czechs and Slovaks are a minority ethnic group in Bulgaria. According to the 2001 census, Czechs number only 316 and the number of Slovaks is smaller, but their population has been larger. Following the Liberation of Bulgaria in 1878, a large number of Czechs and Slovaks arrived in the country from Austria-Hungary to foster its cultural and economic development; these included many intellectuals and entrepreneurs, such as the historian Konstantin Josef Jireček, the painters Ivan Mrkvička and Jaroslav Věšín, the archaeologists Karel Škorpil and Hermann Škorpil, the engineer and entrepreneur Jiří Prošek and the Prošek family, Václav Dobruský, the brewer Franz Milde, the architects Josef Schnitter, Antonín Kolář and Lubor Bajer, many others. Besides urban emigration, the Law for the settlement of the desolated lands of 1880 attracted many ethnic Czech and Slovak colonists Protestants from the regions of the Romanian Banat and modern Vojvodina, Serbia; the most notable site of the rural Czech colony in Bulgaria was the village of Voyvodovo, Vratsa Province, founded by Czech colonists in 1900 and reaching a population of 800 in the 1930s.

Other places where Czechs and Slovaks settled were the town of Gorna Oryahovitsa and the villages of Belintsi and Podayva, Razgrad Province, with a significant Slovak community present in Pleven Province. A member of Bulgaria's Slovak community, Ďuro Mikoláš of Gorna Mitropolia, was an orderly to Tsar Ferdinand I of Bulgaria. In Podem, for example, the Slovaks arrived in 1884 from the southern Kingdom of Hungary and numbered 210 by 1910. Between 1948 and 1950, over 2,000 Czechs and Slovaks from Sofia and the aforementioned localities responded to the call of the government of Czechoslovakia and returned to their native land to populate areas deserted in World War II. Only around 5% of their peak number people who had married local Bulgarians, remained. Пенчев, Владимир. "Чешките темели на следосвобожденска България". Европа 2001: 14. Retrieved 5 April 2007.

Way Out Yonder (Andy Irvine album)

Way Out Yonder is an album by Andy Irvine, recorded between July and December 1999 and released in January 2000. It was co-produced by Steve Cooney; this album opens with "Gladiators", a self-penned song celebrating the life of Tom Barker, editor of the Industrial Workers of the World's newspaper, Direct Action just before and after the first world war. He led an effective campaign against the Australian government of William Morris Hughes' plans to introduce conscription."Moreton Bay" is an Australian convict ballad about the brutality meted out by captain Patrick Logan, commander of Moreton Bay penal colony between 1826 and 1830. When he was killed by a party of Aboriginal hunters, the convicts rejoiced at the news of his death."They'll Never Believe it's True/Froggy's Jig" is an amusing tale during which, late one night, Irvine chances upon a procession headed by an old and creaky piper, leading to a Faerie building site. After being invited to join the dance and perform, he receives his trademark green plectrum from the Faerie Queene herself, "but they'll never believe it's true"."The Girl I Left Behind", is a song from Sam Henry's collection.

It tells the story of a young man who emigrates from Ireland to Glasgow in search of work but can't forget the sweetheart he left behind though he discovers she married another. He decides to travel farther afield and finds love in New York, while never able to forget the girl who perjured her vows."Way Out Yonder" is an instrumental Bulgarian tune Irvine received from many people who had sent him cassettes over the years. The lead melodies are performed by Nikola Parov on gadulka, Brendan Power on harmonica and Rens van der Zalm of fiddle."The Highwayman" is Alfred Noyes's long poem set to new music by Loreena McKennitt and this is Irvine's adaptation of her song."When the Boys Are on Parade" is a song written by Marcus Turner from Dunedin in New Zealand. It reflects on the ambivalence of antimilitarists when confronted with the horrors of war."On a Distant Shore" is an instrumental written by Irvine, with Declan Masterson on low whistle and pipes. The album closes with "Born in Carrickfergus".

It is a poignant song written by Irvine and inspired by the childhood memories of Adrian Jefferies, a Catholic who grew up in Protestant East Antrim during the Troubles in the 1970s.
