If you could sum up Lightspeed Year One in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic Sci-Fi Fun - This book is full of surprising stories with great audio- performances

What other book might you compare Lightspeed Year One to and why?

This is hands- down the best anthology of SFi-Fi stories I have read or listen to.

Which scene was your favorite?

Orson Scott Cards idea of Elephants roaming in the plains and cities of Poland is just a great fun picture for the readers mind.

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

Certainly easy to continue to listen for the whole day, but because there are so many diverse and interesting stories from the SF- great masters of the game: Take it slowly !
