Critic Reviews

"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)

At last I hear the voice of uncle Issac!

If you could sum up Isaac Asimov Radio Dramas in three words, what would they be?

Have been a fan since 1956---and it was wonderful to hear him tell some of the story line.
Had never heard his voice !!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

too long for that-----

3 classic short sci-fi stories

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have loved sci-fi from childhood and actually remembered one of the stories. A great way to spend some time while driving. As there are 3 stories, there are natural places to stop and take a break if you like.

Those wonderful Asimov stories brought to life

A great pleasure listening to the brilliant Asimov Sci-Fi stories from the 60's that I originally read in my childhood. Only wish that there was more of them in this edition and will just have to buy more of the Asimov books
