    The radio play of "The Chronology Protection Case" was adapted by Mark Shanahan with Paul Levinson, based on the novelette by Paul Levinson which first appeared in the pages of Analog magazine in September 1995. The script of the radio adaptation was nominated for a prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Award as "Best Play of 2003" by the Mystery Writers of America.

    Overall

    Thoughtful, well performed and escapist in a way that few audio experiences can be. With a bit of wit, and a nod and wink to great scientific thought, this story allows the listener to contemplate extemely complex advanced science while enjoying a murder mystery with an old fashioned feel - it will give anyone goosebumps. I hope there are more audio stories out there that are like this. I was really absorbed on my return trip after dropping my mother in law off at home. I hope I can find more like this as it is about a 40 minute drive.

    I love to read but the production values of this reminded me of when I used to listen to radio mystery theatre as a kid. It was better off performed than read.


    Enough said (written), I am a fan of this story.

  • Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

    We view the long, horrifying struggle from the vantage of the White House as Lincoln copes with incompetent generals, hostile congressmen, and his raucous cabinet. He overcomes these obstacles by winning the respect of his former competitors, and in the case of Seward, finds a loyal and crucial friend to see him through. This brilliant multiple biography is centered on Lincoln's mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation's history.

    Anders says: "wait for the unabridged version"
    "Great take on a great man"
    Overall

    I thought enough had been written on the great man. However, I really felt closer to Lincoln after hearing the stories, struggles, rivalries sorrows and triumphs of Lincoln and his chosen few on the cabinet. Thoroughly enjoyable and authoritative piece of narrative history.
