"Robertson Dean...is an excellent reader, and his narration, combined with the compelling story ideas, adds to these novellas." (Audiobookstoday.com)
I loved the premise of "The Secret Sharer", and it was exceptionally well-written. The other two stories were a little meandering, and didn't seem to have much of a point.
There's something magical about Silverberg's best fiction--and the narration is decent enough, if a bit tinny sounding.
