Great stories, bad narration

This is a fascinating tour through old science fiction ... or would be, if the narration didn't suck so hard. Horrible intonation, awkward pauses -- it doesn't get much worse. Not a way to treat the masters.

Poor reader

Good content, enjoyed the stories. When I could get past the halting monotone of the reader.
