Poul Anderson was one of the most popular authors of science fiction in the 20th century. He started his career in the Golden Age of Sci-Fi in the 1950s, and was a regular contributor to science fiction magazines that were edited by John W. Campbell. During his lifetime, he received seven Hugo and three Nebula Awards and a Science Fiction Writers of America Grandmaster Award, among other honors.
The Burning Bridge is the story of fleet of ships seeking to colonize a distant planet. The trip is so long that most of the 3,000 passengers are kept in cryogenic sleep. As the fleet approaches the point of no return it receives a short message from Earth which may change everything; but the few that are awake will not have to make a life altering decision for everyone.

Joseph's favorite quote: "Say something about yourself!"
I liked the story quite much. Had to get a hardcopy and read it to arrive at this state though. Unforunately PB's reading is horrible. Not a performance, nor a reading, but more like a yelling. Very mono-tone and quite staccato. Only worst production I would place this above would be F Paul Wilson's Sex Slaves production. Make sure to listen to the sample first, as that's about the peak you'll hear.
Yes, but not his audiobook version.
