tunnel under the world

(5 stars)

An unsettling story to say the least. Especially since A.I. is so close on our horizon. And hard to believe that an A.I. society wouldn't enjoy plays by Shakespeare featuring little humans who thought their lives had meaning.

Classic Tales Well Told

(5 stars)

The radio plays were revived in the 1980s and played on at least one major US station until 2002.

(3.5 stars)

Good short stories all though some are long enough that they are their own books in the Librivox catalog.
