Cosmophobia by George Saoulidis, narrated by Bridger Conklin, is award-winning brilliance. This Science Fiction short story is inspired by the James Webb Space Telescope, which is set to launch in the Spring of 2019, a delay from its earlier date set at October of 2018. While only being a 10-minute listen, it launched an unplanned, 3-day, personal quest of discovery for me into the world of the unknown. I was so intrigued by the thought-provoking storyline that I explored every ounce of the internet, eager and excited about what I would learn next.
I first gravitated toward the story because I wanted to listen to something outside of my normal, go-to genre. Second, I wanted it to be short enough where if I didn't like it, I wouldn't be sitting hours on end waiting for it to end. I never listen to Sci-Fi...ever. I am not interested in aliens coming to Earth to fall in love with their human soulmate. This one didn't sound at all like that, so I chose it as my Sci-Fi challenge. After the first time through, I had no clue what it was even about. The last sentence gave me a little bit of an idea, but still not sure. So, that is when I starting reading up on the author and his work. I found out that this story won 2nd place in the Science Fiction category at the 2016 Athens Fantasicon Competition! Bravo! After learning a few things about cosmophobia and such, I listened again. I missed so many things the first time through that made sense to me now. I loved it! That is when my 3-day (slightly obsessive) quest of knowlegde began. :-)
The narration was excellent. I couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job than narrator Bridger Conklin. Perfect voice, volume, inflection, speed, pace....definitely did this story the justice it deserves!
Overall, I rate Cosmophobia by George Saoulidis 5/5 stars across the board! It is creative, thought-provoking, and entertaining!! I've listened to it a number of times, and it gets more and more interesting...will there be a Part 2, I wonder?! I highly recommend it to lovers of Sci-Fi, as well as anyone looking to give something new a try. I'm confident this is one you will enjoy!
Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
