    In Rip-Off!, 13 of today’s best and most honored writers of speculative fiction face a challenge even they would be hard-pressed to conceive: Pick your favorite opening line from a classic piece of fiction (or even non-fiction) - then use it as the first sentence of an entirely original short story.

    Julie W. Capell says: "When is a rip-off not a rip-off?"
    "Anthology done right."

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

    For my SF loving friends it is a yes.


    What other book might you compare Rip-Off! to and why?

    It was a themed anthology. There are a host of these but the theme matters.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I like the diversity of the narrators. Every story got it's own narrator. This is how to handle anthologies. Short of a different one for each story alternating narrators would help differentiate the stories.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Mike Resnick's Damon Runyon inspired story was my favorite. Why isn't there any Runyon on audible?
