Publisher's Summary

If someone observed us from afar, they could claim that our civilization was a civilization of walls. That was its main purpose. Such observers would likely not be able to explain why. I cannot either. Walls do not protect. They just trap and kill.

Three short stories about a dystopic future, about people turning into machines, about walls and fences, about the way history works. Three short stories about now.

Speculative fiction

A very strange collection of tales. I am not sure what the author was trying to relay and I am not sure that I understood any of it!

The narrator spoke much too slowly for me and I had to speed up my device to 1.25x in order to listen.

Great Narrator Horrible Story

This was flat and boring! The narrator was great though. Totally not interesting. I couldn't finish, and it isn't even an hour.

Two Great Short Stories

If you could sum up Once upon a Dystopia in three words, what would they be?

Great discussion stories.

Which character – as performed by Scott ODell – was your favorite?

The woman ghost. He did it with such feeling.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the Doctor is speaking to the ghost.

Any additional comments?
