What the Critics Say

"The landmark series was Dimension X, which was broadcast by NBC....It was the first radio series to treat science fiction in an adult way." (Mike Ashley, Transformations: The History of the Science-Fiction Magazine 1950 to 1970)

Needs Sound Editing!

Great story, Great Actors, but the experience is ruined by very poor audio... the sound effects overwhelm the dialog to the point of making it unbearable to listen to. PLEASE PLEASE check the Levels and re-release.

Earth was just a Pepple in the Sky!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it as it was a wonderful adaptation of the book "A Pebble in the Sky" by Isaac Asimov. He isn't very kind to Earthlings in this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dimension X?

When the Archaelogist finds out the truth about what the Earthmen have planned for the Universe. Frightening.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

This is a radio play, so didn't notice a narrator.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I hate our arrogance as a people, but am not surprised when authors use it in stories. If a weapon is possible, believe me when I say someone will use it.

Any additional comments?

Asimov is one of the world's best science and science fiction writers. Don't miss this one!
