    Story
    (24)

    A professor discovers the secret of mind over matter - then struggles to keep his power out of the hands of the military. Based on a Kurt Vonnegut story, this episode of Dimension X originally aired on April 22, 1950.

    Kristi says: "Radio story about Man with the Magic Mind!"
    "NOT HEINLEIN!!!! But good"
    Overall

    I bought this because it had Heinlein's name on it-- I saw the Vonnegut reference but assumed RAH had some hand it the adaptation. This does not appear to be the case-- Heinlein is not mentioned at all. But you know, Vonnegut doesn't stink.

    If you're looking for post-fifties production values or acting styles, look elsewhere. But it's a good story, and pretty well done for the time.

    Story

    For Rain McLeod, a 46-year-old dancer whose failing body is about to end her career, the Starseed program is the only way to continue living her dream. But for others, including several religious groups and power hungry countries back on earth, the existence of Stardancers represents a threat to all humanity.

    "A worthy follow-up"
    Overall

    The first novel in this series (Stardance) was absolutely excellent, and this followed suit.

    I was surprised at how little the notion of Spider reading the part of the (female) main character interfered... that can kill a book, in my opinion, but it worked here.

    Once again, the description provided is a little off of the actual book... but it doesn't matter. Read it.
