    Lightspeed is the critically acclaimed, online science fiction magazine edited by best-selling anthologist John Joseph Adams. Each month at lightspeedmagazine.com, top authors and brilliant new voices alike span the genreā€™s full spectrum, from near-future sociological science fiction, to star-spanning hard science fiction, and everything in between. This audiobook contains all the podcasts from Lightspeed's first Hugo-nominated year, performed by a host of star narrators.

    Story

    Most stories are very well written. The voice acting is of a reasonably good quality. The problem is every single story is depressing. On their own each story isn't that bad, very dystopian however. The problem arises if you listen to them as a full volume. At about the half way mark I was completely miserable. That being said it is still an excellent listen, as long as you limit your listening to 2-3 stories at a time

    Story
    (987)

    Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it's a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. And boy, do they have news. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on humanity's music ever since "Year Zero" (1977 to us), when American pop songs first reached alien ears. This addiction has driven a vast intergalactic society to commit the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang.

    Reminded me of John Scalzi. Very funny and memorable story. Went in a different way than I expected. Narrator did a pretty good job too
