There´s hardly a day now that an airline incident of some sort or another is not in the news. We´re taking a lot closer look at air travel these days than ever before. Therefore, as regards the psychology of travel, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens on airplanes. So, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, that´s exactly what I do. Air-travel-life stories include the full range of the human air travel experience, from preboarding incidents to arrivals; from the cabin to the loo; from the public and private lives of airline personnel as well as passengers - from the pilots, to the stews, to you; from that which makes us laugh to that which makes us cry as well as, unfortunately, to that which creates abject fear and terror in the skies. 1.

The first pulse occurred in the old calendar year of 2022. A sequence of gigantic solar flares created a series of massive electromagnetic pulses that stopped the heart of our modern world and returned us to the Dark Ages. Tens of thousands died within the first few hours as airplanes fell from the skies, hospitals ceased to work, and every form of modern transportation ground to a halt. Within days, the death toll had reached the hundreds of thousands. Fires raged unchecked through the cities, water supplies ran out, and survivors turned on each other as mob rule surpassed all else. Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant Nathaniel Hogan finds he has been changed by the huge amounts of gamma radiation in the solar flares. They have enhanced his natural abilities, giving him increased speed, strength, and healing. They have indefinitely extended his life span and enabled him to be able to draw on the power of the solar flares to create magik. Making him - the Forever Man. But even the Forever Man was not prepared for what happened next. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Neeb. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/cher/000707/bk_cher_000707_sample.mp3.

The crash was no accident. Fate carried Brady and his airplane to the isolated island where Karis was banished to live alone. She feared the worst as she sifted through the wreckage, sure that no one could survive. But there he was, barely breathing yet still alive. The closer she got to him, the more her powers awakened. He was like a magnet she was drawn to. Maybe it was the years alone that left her yearning for companionship, or maybe it was the taut muscles in his arms that beckoned her to come closer, either way she had a hard time controlling her thoughts. She knew things about him that he couldn´t remember, things that were blocked from his memory. He wasn´t from earth either, and she needed his help to save both of their worlds. But the closer she gets to Brady the more she knows her world is with him. Even with a woman as beautiful as Karis, Brady was well trained, but he wasn´t prepared to care as much as he did. Being an underground fighter made him the wrong man for a future queen of a different world, and he knew it. But that didn´t stop the yearning he felt deep inside. It didn´t stop his heart from racing when she was around. And it didn´t stop him from falling in love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mandy Nelson.

Sir Kieran Hage had a mission to fulfill. As the head of a peace delegation intending to end the Siege of Acre in 1192 A.D., he carries the crown of thorns said to be worn by Jesus Christ as an offering of truce from the Muslim warlords. It is a holy relic of the most important magnitude. Unwilling to accept peace, however, Kieran´s men turn against him and make an attempt on his life. Wounded, Kieran seeks out a man who he believes is a physic. He is greatly mistaken. Not a physic but an alchemist, the mysterious man does the only thing he knows to do for the dying knight - he puts him in to an eternal sleep so he will not bleed to death, suspending his bodily functions, only to be awakened by the power of truly deep emotion. Eight hundred years later, Dr. Rory Osgrove excavates the English knight from his dusty tomb and an accidental kiss brings him back to life. Together, they shared an adventure in Modern Times before a twist of fate sends them back to his time. Back in his element, Kieran is determined to finish his mission of peace. He must return the crown of thorns to England. But the same assassins who tried to kill him the first time are after him again, patterns of life repeating themselves, and Kieran, now with Rory, finds himself back on the run. Over dry land and heavy seas, he and Rory flee the assassins, struggling to make their way back to England. But as they travel, the real Medieval world opens up. To Kieran, it is the world he knows but to Rory, it is much different. The modern girl finds herself in a land of no cell phones, bathrooms, antibiotics, or airplanes. She must learn to live in this strange, new world, a place she thought she knew a great deal about until she actually found herself in the midst of it. Dangers lurk everywhere as she struggles to adjust, but even as she tries to acclimate to an environment that is much more different than she ever imagined, bigger fears come to light. 1.

Add in mysterious sightings of spacemen roasting hot dogs, a strange psychologist interviewing the townspeople, a Bucket of Bolts Overlanders expedition, and Bud’s suspicion that Wilma Jean is about to buy an airplane on the Internet, and there’s never a dull moment, even though all Bud really wants is the peace and quiet of watching his dogs play in the ditch on the farm.
