The first draw to this collection is a cyclops who is developing his dating profile (aided by THE cheeriest saleswoman), but stay to survey all of AWAYLAND. Hear the tale of a woman who is trying to have a baby with a friend (it was "a better escape" than being a chef on "fake Mars") and the one of the dying lover who is determined to have her hand grafted onto her boyfriend's. The "gratitude" shown by the animal mummies is hilarious, and cheekily voiced in a British accent. The listener may prefer some tales over others, but the voices for each are good matches, like the wiser-than-his-years teenage boy who is working at a Turkish resort. A grieving mother is voiced gravely, with anxiety and pain. The terrain is strange, the themes are many, and the narrations are smooth guides.
