No Lord Kalvan.

Great classic sf. Could use better breaks between stories. I wish it contained Lord Kalyan of Otherwhen.

narrator

I like Piper's books. However the narrator did not seem to even try to differentiate the characters' voices, making this recording harder to finish.

Excellent stories, marred by shoddy audiobook

While I enjoyed Paratime!, I'm unlikely to listen to it again without significant work, as the final story is completely destroyed by having several chapters in the wrong order. As Audible doesn't present you with the ability to download audiobooks in chapters any more, I'd have to chop the file up and restructure it myself in order to make it listenable.
