What the Critics Say

"Rene Auberjonois's performance is flawless as he effortlessly and convincingly alters his voice for each character and gender. His emotional reading sets the tone, which is humorous, heartrending and suspenseful without trivializing the seriousness of Alzheimer's disease." (AudioFile)

Terrific, but why unavailable elsewhere?

This is great little sci-fi novella. Yes, it comes apart a bit toward the end but I loved it, and will listen to it again. Rene Auberjonois is a fabulous reader the perfect choice for this sophisticated tale. My great question, WHO is Edward Weller and why is this story unavailable (despite diligent searching) in print form? I found it on cassette, but nothing in print. I have several family members who "don't do audio" and would love to read this story.

interesting theme

Interesting plot, but hard to make really believable, especially with a nazi murder still going strong in the computer age. The dialogues of a demented main character with self involved other characters not noticing, with their fantasy filling in the gaps, are cleverly put together.
