(4.4 stars; 65 reviews)

Science fiction is a genre encompassing imaginative works that take place in this world or that of the author’s creation where anything is possible. The only rules are those set forth by the author. The speculative nature of the genre inspires thought and plants seeds that have led to advances in science. The genre can spark an interest in the sciences and is cited as the impetus for the career choice of many scientists. It is a playing field to explore social perspectives, predictions of the future, and engage in adventures unbound into the richness of the human mind. ( A. Gramour) (6 hr 9 min)

A most interesting collection.

(5 stars)

This is a collection of various works studying what if from many angles. Each story examines an aspect of the effects of an advance in technology and how it affects people. I enjoyed reading the collection and recommende it to you.

A good mix of tales

(4 stars)

Some variable sound quality but generally good readings and worth a listen. Some repeats from previous collections, some with different readers. Some very entertaining ones though


(3.5 stars)

short stories yeah but some of them were really really short. on the whole worth a listen with some good reading.
