    When Ernst Stavro Blofeld blasts into eternity the girl James Bond has married only hours before, the heart and zest for life goes out of Bond. M, unwilling to lose his best man, is persuaded to give him one last chance: an impossible mission far removed from his usual duties. Bond heads to Japan and a mysterious residence known as the "Castle of Death".

    W says: "Vance excels as Bond and Tanaka"

    A well read engaging (if dated) story.
    A bit of light entertainment. Classic James Bond the way it was originally written.

    Story

    Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot 97. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of the ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorby himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.

    L. says: "One of Heinlein's best"
    "Good story well narrated"

    Story

    This is a simple story by the Dean of Science Fiction. The story itself is engrosing if somewhat predictable. The narration is very good. Classic Heinlein.

    African diamonds are being smuggled into the United States, and it's up to the British Secret Service to infiltrate the organized crime families in America and destroy the smugglers. James Bond is not afraid of gangsters, but then he hasn't really met any until now. With advice from his American friend, Felix Leiter, Bond tracks a diamond smuggling ring from Africa through London to the United States.

    Story

    This is a very good audio book told my a master storyteller. Would have been 5 stars but for a few editing blunders; (repeated paragraphs)

    As the French enter the American War of Independence, young Richard Bolitho is given command of the fast, well-armed sloop Sparrow. He has a chance to prove his ability, but danger threatens - as real and deadly as the enemy itself.

    Jean says: "British Ship off the US coast 1778"

    Story

    The narration by Jayston adds a very realistic tone to this novel. His ability to mimic different characters is amazing. (except, possibly, the ladies) I certainly will be looking for more Kent novels narrated by this gentleman. An excellent read.
