    One of the most memorable programs in broadcast history, the Halloween Eve 1938 broadcast of The War of the Worlds set off a nationwide panic that's almost unimaginable today. Presented by the Mercury Theatre on the Air and its creatve genius, Orson Welles, the drama based on H.G. Wells' classic novel tells the story of a Martian invasion of Earth.

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    If you could sum up The Great Hunt in three words, what would they be?

    Freedom meets prophecy


    What other book might you compare The Great Hunt to and why?

    Its a style on its own.


    What does Kate Reading and Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like that they take various voice and intonation for the various characters. Makes the story more alive. Kudo's for a great reading on their part.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sad a few place. Poor guy fighting against a destiny towards madness and death. "Duty is heavier than a mountain"


    Any additional comments?

    Get this, its a good listening.
