Subtly sensual, sinister, and subversive: the inexplicable disappearance of three girls at Hanging Rock in the heat of the Australian summer provokes investigations, recriminations, and fevered dreams. Dressed up as a query into an alleged occurrence in 1900, Picnic at Hanging Rock is a most mysterious, strange, and haunting tale. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Hitchcock's Rear Window slithers into the 21st Century. A New York City recluse spends her days guzzling wine, popping pills, surfing the internet, and obsessively watching, and photographing, her neighbors. In her haze of booze and drugs, what she sees in the house across the street becomes frightening, ominous, and deadly...or does it? ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Dropped into a maelstrom of earth-shattering events, Harry Truman acted with bluntness, bravery, and little bravado. His decisions at the end of World War II, including deployment of the atomic bomb, permanently altered, for better or worse, our world. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Crazy, crackling stories. There's nothing quite like a lion named Get Along, Go Along gossiping about life in the zoo. Animals communicate through Thought Speak, and don't much care for humans, who are commonly known as "Smelly Ones," or "Smellies" for short. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
