(3.7 stars; 26 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. - Summary by Amy Gramour (7 hr 42 min)

(4 stars)

Tony Addison falls into the category of "he's so bad he"s good" . Excruciating to the point of hilarity. Even better after a few pints. Keep it coming.

I thought Tony was fine

(4 stars)

I'm seeing some pretty negative reviews for Tony's parts, but I thought his readings were pretty good. I loved the musician story. Unfortunately, this selection only has a few new stories and is mostly repeats from previous volumes, which knocks off a star.

Some good ones and some new ones

(3.5 stars)

I’m in the “not a fan” camp for Tony Adison but there’s plenty here to entertain
