Good collection of stories to drive by

(4 stars)

This collection was very enjoyable. It really made the miles go by fast while driving. The readers are all did a good job. There are technical problems on 'Martian V. F. W.' and 'Pygmalion's Spectacles.' Those two are complete and they play, but they are very crisp. There is no low or mid range making the quality very shrill.

Some great stories

(4 stars)

Theres some amazing ideas in some of these stories. some great readers too. sadly some quite bad sound quality recordings makes some harder to listen to. great selection

Short SF Vol. 1

(4 stars)

This is a nice collection, well read by various readers. If you like this one check out Vol. 2 which I think is even better.

nice collection of stories

(4 stars)

overall good. one story had a rough, narration. there were technical issues which made it hard to listen to.

Good effort but awkward

(2 stars)

The readers are amateurs, so these recordings are hard to listen to.
