    Paul Auster's signature work, The New York Trilogy, consists of three interlocking novels: City of Glass, Ghosts, and The Locked Room - haunting and mysterious tales that move at the breathless pace of a thriller.

    James says: "Great Book of Pretentiousness"
    "Trilogy York New The"
    Overall

    I truly welcome these recordings. Though, I have to admit, Auster's LEVIATHON is the real gem. But, all of his early books are deeply revealing. Starting with these three novellas. If you read all his early works in order, there is this umbrella...well, it...uh...it evolves from book to book. You'll see. This is great literature.

    In celebration of the week-long, once-in-a-decade rite of Apert, the fras and suurs prepare to venture outside the concent's gates - opening them wide at the same time to welcome the curious "extras" in. During his first Apert as a fra, Erasmus eagerly anticipates reconnecting with the landmarks and family he hasn't seen since he was "collected". But before the week is out, both the existence he abandoned and the one he embraced will stand poised on the perilous brink of cataclysmic change.

    Richard says: "Tour de force"
    "Extraordinary Book!"
    Overall

    Seriously, you might not like this book. You might not "get it". But, if you do, you will realize that this is a remarkable story, filled with mind-expanding themes, cutting edge science, and much, much more. It is completely original science fiction...unconventional...not part of any series...unlike anything. Very worthy of it's author. What's more, it's intelligent...literate...and it stays with you for a very long time after you're done. I highly, highly recommend it! It's well performed, too. But, you know...if you want space opera (and sometimes I do, too)...this ain't that. At all....

    Over four hours of strange and chilling tales of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and the surreal, including the classics Master of the Crabs by Clark Ashton Smith and Black God's Kiss by C.L. Moore. A unique blend of short stories for fans of all audio genres!

    Andrew says: "A mixed bag"
    "Curious combination of stories."
    Overall

    The Smith and Moore aren't really "dramatized"...more like read with sound-effects. They're interesting, Smith more than Moore. The others are original radio plays that are much less compelling. I'm not sorry I bought it...but, it could have been better.
