"As I stepped out of the Video Booth, the first whiff of catastrophe nudged itself up to me. Rog Crinton said, 'Red Emergency Alert - come with me. Jack Hawk is dead. The galactic drug menace and his killer is on his way here.'"

This particular production company (Ziggurat) seems to think that terrible music and sound might somehow make for a better recording - it doesn't. It was impossible for me to get past the first 10 min of this recording. Simply awful! I now check to see who made the recording avoid anything from this company.
If I could have gotten through it, the story might have been OK. But...
Love Asimov! Loved the story. The narrator was good. However, I'd already been thinking that I could use a little less orchestra music with my short story, when, about halfway through the recording, the story was over and the next half hour or so was that same orchestral music. I kept fast-forwarding, thinking it had to be over soon and there would be another story. No--I was wrong. If I want music, I will buy music. I come to Audible for literature. At least I'm glad I only paid $4.95 instead of wasting a credit.
