    "enjoyable not up to past works"

    Been a fan of Mike Resnick for a long time. Always happy to revisit the frontier and go along for the ride. This book was OK but nothing stellar. I will continue to buy, read and listen to his work, I just think he has more in him to give.
    BTW whoever read this book did a great job. Thank you.

    "Side spin with Character"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Widowmaker to be better than the print version?

    Widowmaker is made for audio consumption: nothing competes with the skill of a good narrator


    What other book might you compare The Widowmaker to and why?

    There is something of King's Gunslinger series to this work: it smacks of spaghetti Western which in no way diminishes its delivery


    What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

    Stephan is arguably the greatest narrator of our generation besides George Guidall


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely: this book builds its narrative in a very engaging manner


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Resnick was as prolific as Larry Niven
