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)

Time traveling to escape!

If you could sum up Dimension X in three words, what would they be?

Escape to 1950!


Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the couple who at first seemed on vacation in Mexico but eventually you come to find out they are running away from a government project in the future that will wipe out the human race. You really want them to escape.


What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

This was a radio play, so if there was a narrator he didn't stand out.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love Bradbury's stories and this one was suspenseful and surprising up to the last minute.


Any additional comments?

Radio plays on Audible are always a bargain and they make for great entertainment.
