When baseball fans voted on the top 25 players of the 20th century in 1999, Stan Musial didn’t make the cut. This glaring omission - later rectified by a panel of experts - aised an important question: How could a first-ballot Hall of Famer, widely considered one of the greatest hitters in baseball history, still rank as the most underrated athlete of all time? In Stan Musial, veteran sports journalist George Vecsey finally gives this 20-time All-Star and St. Louis Cardinals icon the kind of prestigious biographical treatment previously afforded to his more celebrated contemporaries Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio. More than just a chronological recounting of the events of Musial’s life, this is the definitive portrait of one of the game’s best-loved but most unappreciated legends, told through the remembrances of those who played beside, worked with, and covered ´´Stan the Man” over the course of his nearly seventy years in the national spotlight. Stan Musial never married a starlet. He didn’t die young, live too hard, or squander his talent. There were no legendary displays of temper or moodiness. He was merely the most consistent superstar of his era, a scarily gifted batsman who compiled 3,630 career hits (1,815 at home and 1,815 on the road), won three World Series titles, and retired in 1963 in possession of seventeen major-league records. Away from the diamond, he proved a savvy businessman and a model of humility and graciousness toward his many fans in St. Louis and around the world. From Keith Hernandez’s boyhood memories of Musial leaving tickets for him when the Cardinals were in San Francisco to the little-known story of Musial’s friendship with novelist James Michener - and their mutual association with Pope John Paul II - Vecsey weaves an intimate oral history around one of the great gentlemen of baseball’s Greatest Generation. There may never be another Stan the Man, a fact that future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

After a failed mission claims the lives of his five-man support team, Stan Tremblay, Callsign: Rook, flees Siberia and finds himself on the secluded coast of Norway, north of the Arctic Circle. Exhausted, cut off from the outside world, and emotionally beaten from his defeat in Russia, Rook just wants to find a place to rest. The small coastal town of Fenris Kystby seems like the perfect place. Within hours of arriving, he discovers that the town is not as tranquil as it appears. The townspeople are mistrustful of outsiders, a pack of mysterious wolves stalk the local tundra, and two villagers have been killed by a creature that defies explanation. To make things worse, there are rumors of something sinister, something the townspeople refuse to discuss. Despite the hostility of the locals, Rook commits to stopping the creature from murdering townspeople. As the body count rises, he quickly learns that the greatest threat might walk on two legs.

This is the startling, bewildering, intriguing, and wildly popular account of Stan Romanek´s scientifically supported and well-documented experiences of alien encounters and abductions. It is augmented by lab reports, testimonial from prominent professors, and vivid recollections of photo and video stills shots and refers to proven mathematical equations of which Stan should have no known knowledge. As difficult as Stan finds it, he even shares information regarding his regression sessions, shedding more light on his experiences. Stan´s regressions have become a bridge for information about the origins of these strange beings. While the encounters are at times frightening, Stan and his wife, Lisa, take a somewhat lighthearted approach by affectionately naming each creature and not backing down from the frightening experiences. They take every opportunity possible to document whatever they can to help explain these rare and odd occurrences. Romanek resides in Colorado. He has been interviewed on Larry King Live, 20/20, Coast to Coast, and other national television and radio programs. He has been invited to speak at UFO conferences across the country. His unique story has appeared in UFO Magazine, MUFON Journal, and other periodicals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Pearl.
