Reviews

Good stories


(5 stars)

Alan Nourse has a way with mixing moral messages into sci-fi. A few of these stories are thought-provoking in their message, but some are just plain fun. The last story had me cracking up. It was great! Kirk is an excellent reader, and he always does a nice job with his recordings. This was an excellent listen. Enjoy!

great author, much mispronunciation


(2 stars)

Nukular, hydroPHonics, containment (instead of contaminant), and several more mispronunciations detracted greatly from the stories. The reader's voice was gruffly suited for the space western story "Gold in the sky", though his pacing left something to be desired.


(5 stars)

What if ... Action and reaction. Fixed points in time, or are they fixed indeed?

Soooo boring


(0.5 stars)

I think it might be the reader. Can't finish any of these.

Great stories with some amusing twist, great story reader


(5 stars)
