    "3 classic short sci-fi stories"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have loved sci-fi from childhood and actually remembered one of the stories. A great way to spend some time while driving. As there are 3 stories, there are natural places to stop and take a break if you like.
