Having read the earlier edition of this book several times over the years, I approached this with excitement and trepidation. Excitement at having an old friend taken in new directions by the author's rewrite and an audio version. Concern that the audio production would leave a bad taste in my mouth diminishing the enjoyment I have received from the written version.
However, with the exception of a few southwestern twangs, which might be entirely realistic for all that I know, I found the audio version a faithful and enjoyable visit to the universe of Wilf Brim. Voices served to convey the individual characters and the narration was smooth and fluent. Background sounds were a little overblown at times, but rarely enough to not dimish the overall experience.
Looking forward to future voyages.

A fantastic book. This was my first glimpse into the world of Wilf Brim, but it will not be the last. This was the first audio with a "full cast" of different characters that I truly enjoyed. My only difficulty with the audio was the occasionally overenthusiastic sound track in the background. I can't wait for more of the series to come out.

this is one of the best stories I have encountered and I hope to see the rest of the series on Audio Book Soon?

This, together with its sequel "Galactic Convoy" is true, blue, space opera in the style of the master; E.E. Doc Smith. Our hero finds himself in numerous cliff-hanger situations that he escapes by the skin of his teeth! Then manages to become involved with 'Galactic Royalty', in the form of a Princess, no less! Really enjoyable stuff.
