Time Crime


Read by H. Beam Piper

(3.7 stars; 19 reviews)

From Astounding Tales Published February and March 1955

The Paratime Police had a real headache this time! Tracing one man in a population of millions is easy—compared to finding one gang hiding out on one of billions of probability lines!

This story from 1955 has rocket ships, time travel, slaves, post-hypnotic suggestions, drugged citizens, and a complete disregard for human rights. And those are the good guys. As a look back in time at "classic" science fiction, it's an interesting snapshot of a time when tobacco was common, sexism was unconscious, and female characters were a long way from Lara Croft.

Narrated by Nathan Lowell.

Hi Nate! Great story and wonderful narration! Thanks for bringing this story to us. Seems like the last episode was cut off abruptly, could you check it out and maybe put up a revised complete episode so we can finish the story? :) Joan

I swear to the gods that this file is going to be the death of me. Nate and I have replaced it at least three times. When I see him sign on tonight, we'll try again.

I've learned that there's a chapter missing in the reading. I'm not sure how to address it at this late date, but I'll look into it.

Double Share is ... coming. I'm REALLY sorry it's late, but you're gonna be pleased when it's ready, I'm pretty sure. :)

Interesting story and interesting writing, the narrating wasn't half bad either. Can't wait for Double Share.
