"Life is never fair. And perhaps it is a good thing for us that it is not." (Oscar Wilde)
When we think evolution, we think of the life forms we can see. But what if evolution should occur on the microscopic level?
What if red blood cells achieved intelligence? Would they be happy at the world in which they find themselves? And if they didn't, what might they do?
In this story intelligent blood is starting an offensive against Man.
One lone telepath finds himself a helpless spectator as the race of Man is subjugated into mindless drones.
When the war is over, and he finds himself totally alone ...How can he go on and why?

What a dark and absorbing production - I loved it!! Roland Yeoman's novel poses a frightening scenario - the concept of intelligent red blood cells turning against mankind. As Narrator, Hubert Williams' powerful character voice adds the perfect chilling mood to this thriller. Truly gave me chills!!
Set in the already "squeamish" world of blood donating, BLOOD WILL TELL takes the listener through the adventure of facing one of humanity's greatest fears: being alone. What I enjoyed most about this story, though, is that, through the great writing and fantastic narration, the reader is able to get a glimpse both into the mind of main character, who is a telepath, those around him, and the 'invader,' who appears to him the guise of a rather seductive woman. Will he be able to free the rest of humanity from the invader? Will her feminine wiles win him over? I was surprised at just how much this rather short story scared me and vastly entertained me all at the same time.
Hubert Williams did a fantastic job of capturing the essence of a small-town Southern guy, trying to avoid any real connections with people as he makes his way through life as a telepath. I found myself literally laughing out loud at his characterizations several times, even though the story was rather suspenseful most of the time. My favorite aspect of this particular performance was the audio effects used to depict the 'inner dialogue' the main character would 'overhear' in his role as a telepath. The slightly 'reverberated' effect wasn't distracted but greatly added to the eeriness of the moment. Wonderful, subtle effect for this piece.
