With a cast of writers such as W J Williams and the late, great Roger Zelazny (who is NOT listed as an author, though his character Croyd Crieghton (sp?) is one of the best), this is a great anthology by great science fiction authors in the tradition of great "comic books." Good work, and I look forward to the next three chapters.

It is nice enough, but I would like to hear the full Neutronium Alchemist Trilogy, of which this is only a precursor.
The editing/abridging done to this book for all intents and purposes has removed any "real" elements of Mr. Banks' Culture- my apologies to himself if he was involved, but no excuses. This book was 600 pages of text and edited down to 5 1/2 hours. A tragedy.
On the plus side, I will never be suckered again by purchasing anything "abridged." I read the original novel in hardcover when it first came out, and this was like the "made-for-television" version of a bad paperback.
Not worth the time or money in the abridged version. I wish I could not even give it one star overall.
