Note to Amazon and Movie Producers!!

I have all of Dennis's work and love every chapter. Why there's not any movie out yet only shows the disconnect between the movie industry and the real public.

Dennis as always 5 out of 5. Love the work. Keep it coming.

Huge Dennis E. Taylor fan

Full of science and tactics and engagement. Ultimate compliment is that I've listened to it and know the story, would I give them my money again? Heck, yeah!! I've already read it but here's my money! Got to keep you and your family well fed and, hopefully, well sheltered! More, please!

Short, but uses it well

Very short story that is able to create a universe better than and entire series by another author could. Amazing

too short to be entertaining

Nothing was developed. Way too short. Not worth the price. I have enjoyed every other book by this author but this just didnt do anything for me. Also didnt care for the narrator.

What a delight!

What a delightful surprise to find that this awesome little short story was released on Audible this past month.
My favorite author strikes again, along with a great narrator, Neil Hellegers backing him up!!! This made for a much needed break in the recent, current events!
Earth is dying, and in the rush to colonize the new worlds, things might go wrong... This 44 minute story will get to you in all the right ways! Guaranteed!

Great short

I’ll admit, it really kept me listening closely. Well written and well performed. I really hope the author expands on this. It would be an incredible Prologue to a larger story or series.
I didn’t spend a credit on it, rather I paid the few bucks and purchased it. Well worth it.

Another winner by DET.

This was another great one by Denis E. Taylor. Found it while pre ordering Bobiverse 4.

Makes for a great intro and would love to hear more stories from this universe.

Enjoyable short story

As all good short stories, this one leaves you wanting more. Taylor's grasp on sci-fi is firm and well-crafted.

A thought provoking short story

I have enjoyed Denis E Taylor's books and equally so this short story. As ever his characters have integratory and the ending is optimistic despite a tumultuous start. A very satisfying listen.

Great story!

Fast paced, interesting characters and a great performance, everything you’d expect from a Dennis E. Taylor short story. Feedback is another fabulous story.

Nice quick read

Happy to support such a great author while the next Bob-iverse is on the way.

This story has some cool ideas and an interesting twist.
