    The planet Majipoor is shared by humans and several alien races, including four-armed Skandars, three-eyed Liiman, and the native, shape-shifting Metamorphs. All are watched over by the King of Dreams, the labyrinth-dwelling Pontifex, and the priestess of the Isle of Sleep, while the Coronal officially rules from atop Castle Mount.

    Story

    Loved the book when it came out over 30 years ago. Some SF/Fantasy books dont hold up over this length of time but this one surely does. The story is riveting and the narrator fantastic.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Story

    One of the most engrossing stories I have listened to. All of the characters are whole and fleshed out so well they become real. The storyline is mesemerizing and you will live and die as mankind tries to hold on in the aftermath of a virulent plague which turns most of mankind into souless virals. Peter and Alesha along with Amy a little girl who kept her humanity after being infected go on a journey to determine what happened and find a way to preserve the last of mankind

    Story

    One night when he was 10, Tyler stood in his backyard and watched the stars go out. They flared into brilliance, then disappeared, replaced by an empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives.

    Robert says: "A Classic"
    "Sci Fi thread is thin, love story long and boring"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Robert Charles Wilson and/or Scott Brick?

    I dont think so. This is supposedly one of his top books and I almost didnt finish. Tyler loves Diane, Diane loves God and Jason loves himself and oh by the way an alien race has covered the earth in a shroud for unknown reasons. Could not identify with any of the characters and never really grasped the cause of time differential between Earth and the rest of the universe. Was it ever explained?


    If you’ve listened to books by Robert Charles Wilson before, how does this one compare?

    This is the one and only book of his I have tried


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was an ok narrator


    Do you think Spin needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No it needed to get to the point in a third of the time
