    This sequel to the Hugo and Audie Award nominated METAtropolis features interconnected stories by today’s top writers of speculative fiction – performed by a galaxy of Star Trek stars. As the mid-20th century approaches, the Pacific Northwest has been transformed - politically, economically, and ecologically - into the new reality of Cascadia. Conspiracies and secrets threaten the tenuous threads of society. And the End of Days seems nearer than ever.

    Hats off to the all star cast reading these books, many great performances! Where I thought this series got derailed was veering away from the mix of visions of the future with cities and the environment. That story about wine makers could have been written on its own, and then loosely connected to this series as an after thought. And this dogmatic anti-christian story at the end, really? I loved METAtropolis for its gutsy re-envisioning of the future, based on current trends. That came through again in two stories, but the story about bio experiments also seemed way off. I enjoyed the Bashar storyline, and the different directions people will take, given where life is headed. Too bad you lost focus.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    I accept this gift in the spirit that it was given in this season of sharing. Why must people complain when others try to do something nice? If you do not want it, don't bother to download it. Thank you Audible, for trying to do something nice, and for the great service you provide.
