(4,528 Sterne; 71 Bewertungen)

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. - Summary by A. Gramour (7 hr 40 min)

Nice collection, good readers

(5 Sterne)

I have enjoyed listening to this collection many times. Most are stories not on other short Sci fi books. "End of All" is my favorite story based in the late 1800's and the best and worst in human nature.
