Publisher's Summary

X Minus One is widely considered one of the best science fiction radio series to ever be broadcast. Featuring stories written by Ray Bradbury, Clifford Simak, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and other science fiction writing luminaries, X Minus One set the bar for excellence in radio drama.
Noted for its superb acting and directing, and original music scores, X Minus One was hailed by critics for its stories of intelligence, heart, and sheer "scare" factor as each weekly episode transported the listener to other worldly dimensions.

Golden Age

I loved science fiction as an adolescent, but there wasn't much available in the local library of the small Montana town where I grew up. I solved the problem by joining The Science Fiction Book Club. My favorite SF books were SF anthologies. I read all the authors from the Golden Age of SF, and this collection was like a nostalgic visit to old friends. I was motivated to reread the original stories, many of which are available online. In many cases, there was a significant departure from the original, but this was expected. Shoehorning a story into radio play forces compromises. The original stories were much better written, but this I hardly an original observation. Nonetheless, I enjoyed radio plays. By a happy coincidence, each story was the same length as my commute.
