Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Some of the best science-fiction stories never get another shot at being heard. The production contains three novellas from the long-gone sci-fi pulp magazine Galaxy, which ceased publication in 1980. Narrator Tom Weiner not only vocalizes various human dialects and accents but also bizarre alien voices. He has the dramatic chops to transport listeners to the outer rim of the galaxy, as well as to a world in which strange whale-like humans live in water. Weiner successfully strikes a chord of anxiety in the story of human-like aliens who come to Earth bearing gifts—at a cost. Overall, Weiner’s performance helps make these stories sound as relevant today as they were thirty years ago.” AudioFile
“As Asimov chronicled the Foundation, as Heinlein built his Future History, so Chandler constructs the epic of the Rim Worlds.” Analog Science Fiction
