loved it great story, twist.

An utterly necessary listen!

(5 stars)

In today's (2017) political climate & already exponential erosions and restrictions of our Freedom in the United States since the past presidential administration, this story is one not only necessary to hear but also to take advice from on restoring the Bill of Rights in full, without restrictions of any kind for any reasons whatsoever. (Without the Sci-Fi elements, of course, though wouldn't that be fun?)

Excellent as always.

Poul Anderson is one of the giants of sci-fi & his shorts are no exception. In a style reminiscent of Heinlein he explores the important issues we face in all aspects of our human experience. This story had the ring of Orwellian 1984 with Heinlein thrown in for good measure.

Awesome story

(5 stars)

This is another 'big brother' type of story where people sacrifice creativity for safety. The story is predictable to an extent, but listen for the neat plot twist at the end, it is a mouth dropper! :-) Reader is always excellent. Thanks Gregg!

Very Enjoyable Story!
