    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    Steve says: "Touching, Funny - Amazingly well written and read."
    "Unforgettable Audio Performance!"
    Overall

    I have read or listened to most all of Stephen Kings work. This is the only audio book that I have listened to multiple times. (Five times now.) William Hurt's reading performance is what brings me back again and again. Without a doubt, the best narration I have heard! He brings the story to life! Thank You Mr. King..........Bravo William Hurt!

    Story
    (3409)

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Mica says: "Hurt version decidedly superior"

    Any additional comments?

    There is a good story here if you can get past the excruciatingly long winded and boring parts. The author could have made her point and moved on, but instead climbs on her soap box and goes on, and on, AND ON......., I don't know if there is an abridged version or not, but this book could easily be edited down by half and be better for it.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "Wake UP!"
    Overall

    Some other reviewers cannot seem to get past their own politics.
    I found this book well written and credible. I can only hope nothing like this ever happens. But I can see that our modern, technical society is fragile. Could you imagine what would happen to our country if we suddenly lost our power for an extended time? God help us!
    The story is riveting and engaging. A must read! Open your eyes and see!

    Story

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Ione says: "Interesting book, very enjoyable narration"
    "Audible Mistake?"
    Overall

    Although I did enjoy this story, I was led to believe it was 12 hours long. For some reason the story is sent in 2 versions making it 12 hrs total for both versions. Had I realized this I would not have bought it. I doubt this was intentional but I feel cheated.
