    What did you like best about Telling Tales? What did you like least?

    I understand the goal of the music was to accentuate the stories but it didn't work. It was grating to hear that

  • "Interesting background to the movie"

    0 of 0 helpful votes
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story, I think I just enjoyed the movie more.


    If you’ve listened to books by Philip K. Dick before, how does this one compare?

    As in all PDK stories, the plots are brilliant, the characters are interesting but flawed, and you come out if it terribly depressed.


    Was The Adjustment Bureau worth the listening time?

    Still, a worthwhile listen.

    Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Ed Fletcher is a real estate agent with a normal life, until one day he leaves the house for work a few minutes later than he should have. He arrives at a terrifying, grey, ash world. Ed rushes home and tells his wife, Ruth, who goes back to the office with him. When they return, everything is normal. But he soon realizes people and objects have subtly changed. Panic-stricken, he runs to a public phone to warn the police, only to have the phone booth ascend heavenward with Fletcher inside....

    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    Curiosity stirred as they inched forward. Then sharp wonder took over. They stood at the edge of a perfectly circular clear space in the hushed green glade. In the center of the sun-lit circle lay a low square dais of dazzling crystal. On the dais stood a low copper couch with strangely carved sides. And on the couch, wrapped in a robe of golden cloth, ornamented with black figures, lay the motionless figure of a man. They stood wide-eyed in fearful awe.

    Are vampires a bloodthirsty menace to mankind? Or simply misunderstood creatures struggling to survive? After hearing these six entertaining stories, you'll be able to decide for yourself. From the horrifying to the humorous, some of today's finest authors share stories about one of the oldest imagined evils, the vampire. From Tanith Lee's chilling story to Esther Friesner's comic tale of rival teens trying to best one another, these stories bring vampires to (un)life, in all their majesty and terror.

    Joan Leeton was certainly a lovely girl. A perfect girl for an English scientist to fall in love with. Unfortunately for Will Fredericks and Bill Josephs that's exactly what happened, to both of them - and to the same girl too, Joan! But they were no ordinary scientists, and they created the most marvelous invention. A device that could perfectly replicate anything. But could it replicate a lovely girl named Joan Leeton? Could they create a love triangle with four people?

    When Ray Baker meets a woman on his sojourn, he doesn't know if he wants to kill her or sleep with her. Ray doesn't understand his urge to murder. But he feels it like all the other Deathlanders. Just as he knows the girl feels it. Laying down their arsenal of weapons will leave them both vulnerable. The cost of a moment of intimacy may lead to the last moments of their lives. And what to do when the act is over, and both their minds turn back to murder.

    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    James says: "Reality questioned brilliantly!"

    When Jeffrey Crowder bought his autistic son some magnets and toy electric motors to play with, he had no idea what his impulsive idea would lead to. It was just that he had played with magnets when he was a child and he remembered how much fun they had been. He thought the toy magnets and motors might be just the thing to interest his son and break through the barrier between his autistic mind and events in the outside world. They certainly did that, in a way Jeffrey could never have imagined!
