    X Minus One was a half-hour science fiction radio series broadcast from April 24, 1955 to January 9, 1958 in various timeslots on NBC. Initially a revival of NBC's Dimension X (1950-51), X Minus One is widely considered among the finest science fiction dramas ever produced for radio. The first 15 episodes were new versions of Dimension X episodes, but the remainder were adaptations by NBC staff writers, including Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts, of newly published science fiction stories.

    Story

    First off let me say this was greatly enjoyable, I listened to it while I was working and I would imagine a family sitting around the radio, the kids laying on the floor with their heads proped on their hands with maybe a bowl of popcorn in front of them. The stories took me out of my head and gave me great pleasure.

    I would have rated this 5 stars but there are two Major errors, The book is listed as running for 20 or so hours but there are two stories repeted.

    One is a story about a lifelike little doll that a little girl and mother buy in a shop and the other is people living under ground to excape the radiation from world war 3 and they are careful about genetic mutation and a perfect woman falls in love with a geneticly flawed man.

    I dont know what they were repeted but it caused me confusion when the first one repeted and I thought somehow my played had somehow gone in to shuffle mode.

    Other then that one error I honestly think it is a wonder audio book and any lovers of old radio drama will love it,

    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book add much to the movie, It is multicast


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When I heard Luke threading the Stone Needle to prove he is just as good as Biggs


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I heard this many many years ago when I used to listen to public radio and heard it for the very first time. When I had to go on a trip and was going to miss a chapter I put a cassete recorder next to the radio, set it to record and plugged both in to a timer. When i got home I hurried into my bedroom and rewinded the tape. I got to listen to the chapter with the added sound effects of KC our cat meowing for attention. I remember it fondly

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    Exploding from the pages of Horror, Humor, and Heroes, Volume One - it’s the full length adventures of the one and only Mechani-Cal! So grab your battlesuit and prepare to get a little nasty.

    I was just searching the book lists when I came across the title. When I read the synopis and the very first paragraph took me in and I had to buy this book. I wasnt disappointed and have told friends about it. You will laugh out loud at times.

    I am eagerly awaiting another book by the author when ever it appears

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    What happens in a world where superheros live and the living dead have taken over the world. A Little slow at times but a wonderful listen. I bought about a month ago and have listened to it twice now. I have recommended it to several friends and recommend you try it

    The Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare. Sixteen years have passed since the Heterodyne Boys, benevolent adventurers and inventors, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Today, Europe is ruled by the Sparks, dynasties of mad scientists ruling over - and terrorizing - the hapless population with their bizarre inventions and unchecked power, while the downtrodden dream of the Heterodynes’ return. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, a pretty, young student named Agatha Clay seems to have nothing but bad luck.

    Overall

    Phil Foglio has always been a great artist and the story he and his wife create is Wonderful, If you are a follower of girl genius comic then this is a must have. It follows the first three volume of his series but add wonderful details that he would never be able to give in his comics.

    If you are a new reader and have discovered his book I recommend you get this and be prepared to enjoy a good listen.

    Kibou-daini is a planet obsessed with cheating death. Barrayaran Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan can hardly disapprove—he’s been cheating death his whole life, on the theory that turnabout is fair play. But when a Kibou-daini cryocorp—an immortal company whose job it is to shepherd its all-too-mortal frozen patrons into an unknown future—attempts to expand its franchise into the Barrayaran Empire, Emperor Gregor dispatches his top troubleshooter, Miles, to check it out

    Overall

    I have checked every time I log on to this site for a new book from Lois and when i saw that it had finally happened I bought it right away. I agree with another review that it wasn't as gripping as some of her stories have been but it is still a wonderful story. The surprise at the end was totally unexpected and I being a guy will admit that I got chocked up and shed a few tears. I hope that Lois doesn't make us wait another 9 year for the next story. If you are new to this series I agree with others Start with Shards Of Honor or Warriors Apr, You will be sucked in and will never escape Lois attraction,
