The stories in this first volume of Pulse Fiction are wonderful. These tales contain everything you want if "Pulp" is your thing - action, adventure, good guys and bad ones. It is worth having as an ebook.
Sadly, I gave this one a try via audio, and though the narrator, Chase Johnson, has a wonderful voice, his choice (or that of the director(s) of the piece have him reading the stories as if he was a wild ghost story teller from the days of old. Instead of letting the fiction bring forth the entertainment, I felt that Mr. Johnson's, dare I say "hammy" emotive vocal gesturing really got in the way for me. I'm not a kid who wants to pretend like I'm listening to a radio broadcast of The Lone Ranger, I'm an adult who wants to hear good pulp fiction. I wish those who put this audio together had made a better choice in narration style.
Perhaps it is me. I suggest that this opinion is only my own. If it helps, I was granted a free copy in order to provide an honest review, and I am doing just that, and hoping that I do so kindly and respectfully as well. If you are interested in this as an audio, listen to a sample, and decide for yourself whether to get it.
If you want to play it safe, obtain the ebook, read and enjoy!
