THE FINAL FRONTIER Stories of Exploring Space, Colonizing the Universe, and First Contact

by | Read by Tim Campbell, James Anderson Foster, Mary Robinette Kowal, Karen Cass, James Langton

Science Fiction • 28.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The wonders and perils of life among the stars are captured imaginatively in this sci-fi collection with a narration style as eclectic as the stories themselves. The five narrators take turns creating distinctive inflections ranging from breathless wonder to bone-deep cynicism, matching the tone of each story. The voices include a variety of aliens and artificial intelligences as well as accents for far-flung humans. (How does one even create a voice for a creature without a mouth?) This talented ensemble tackles the challenges with ease, expressively defining each story within its self-contained universe while also connecting it to the broader themes of curiosity, excitement, and fear of the possibilities at the edges of the galactic frontier.
