Publisher's Summary

X Minus One is widely considered one of the best science fiction radio series to ever be broadcast. Featuring stories written by Ray Bradbury, Clifford Simak, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and other science fiction writing luminaries, X Minus One set the bar for excellence in radio drama.

Noted for its superb acting and directing, and original music scores, X Minus One was hailed by critics for its stories of intelligence, heart, and sheer "scare" factor as each weekly episode transported the listener to other worldly dimensions.

These 32 episodes from season one (actually, 31 episodes as one episode was a repeat, and has been replaced here with the charming NBC Radio promotional jingle as a placeholder) have been digitally remastered and are commercial free.

    Story
    "Break it UP!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The entire buncha vignettes are put into 2 piles; there needs to be a finer chaptering.
    Other than that, these are some of the finest stories ever!


    What other book might you compare X Minus One to and why?

    Twilight Zone,


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    These are classic stories!

    "Old but entertaining"

    Great stories. They have stood the test of time amazingly well, but then the writers are some of the best Sci-Fi storytellers ever. I recommend this to any classic Sci-Fi fans, you will love this. Some great original plots and some nice light comedy as well.
