Natives of the distant planet of Kwannon believe that their world is about to end, and in preparing for the apocalypse, may be unnecessarily bringing about their own demise. The planetary government can’t overcome its own bureaucracy to help them, and the military is overwhelmed. Can a single newsman change the course of a whole people, and save their world?

Anything Mark Nelson reads is guaranteed to be a great listen, and this one was no exception. He is probably the very best narrator on LibriVox...

Quirky and well read

(5 Sterne)

An entertaining and fun little story. Not too moralistic, easy to follow with a fun ending. As always, wonderfully read by Mr Nelson. I love his subtle character accents; they help give the story life without distracting from the narration.

Cool story

This is a neat sci-fi/human interest story. How should humans help those of other species? Should they teach them the more enlightened ways of the humans, or let them keep their superstitious ways? What if those ways threaten the well-being of an entire planet? Reader does a nice job (as usual). Enjoy!

what an odd story!

it gets 4 stars because of Mark Nelsons excellent reading. also the "WTAF value" of the last chapter. the authors political views are right out there on the table in this one and you'll love that or not depending on how you go with the views. an unusual tale.

What is truth?

Mark read this well, as usual, though volume was lower than normal. The plot was weak, and finished with some strange philosophy that just doesn't satisfy logically or compassionately. And no space battles or sci Fi tech. Disappointing overall.

I like

Really like the reader of this, excellent pronunciation and timing. Very good story too, strange how stories written so long ago can still have such resonance with the here and now.

ok

It would be better if the story did not remind my of the new Testament from the bible and of Revelations. I do not see me finishing the book.
