Stephen Baxter, in my opinion, is the most gifted and most entertaining science fiction writer out there. He takes your mind to locations, times, and possibilities that you would have never imagine. And more importantly, he makes it fun to be there.
Cilia of Gold is a book that the talent involved had fun making as well. The production and narration were entertaining and appropriate. Where else can you learn that it snows in Mercury and want to know more...
Audible, if you are reading, please add more talent like Baxter to your science fiction selections (and Peter Hamilton, Gregory Benford, David Brin...)

I had never listened to a short story before, so I did not know whether the format would work as an audio book. I was captured almost immediately, and found myself surprisingly sad when it ended: the author intended (I think) for it to be an up-beat ending, but I could not see it that way. Very moving, ultimately very sad. A great story that stays with you for years.

A classic Baxter story from an author that has far to little audio coverage. Specially his book of destination novels. If like a cross between Robert Heinlein and Ian Banks than this is just the stuff to go for.
