Consistently good series

Would you listen to Favorite Science Fiction Stories, Volume 9 again? Why?

Probably...some time in the future.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Favorite Science Fiction Stories, Volume 9?

Too many to list.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've heard quite of few of these volumes. All good in my opinion. Especially liked they way they use different narrators for variety. Nice touch.

Any additional comments?

Surprised to see some did not like the narrators. Different strokes, I guess. The sample should help you decide for yourself.

Fave Sci fi 9

This is a compilation of many old and new to me sci fi short stories.I liked most,disliked some.Al Kessels narration of "Matter of importance' stands out as done very well.I think my favorite was 'Bedside Manner'.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
