Still a master

I am an avid reader of alternative histories and time travel. Arguably, this short novella has it all and this is the sort of book to listen to and keep. We don't see too much from Allen Steele these days but he's certainly on his game with this yarn. In selecting a critical year and a crew of the likely and the unlikely, he has provided great entertainment.

What would have made ...Where Angels Fear to Tread better?

Some good ideas, but no follow through.

Would you recommend ...Where Angels Fear to Tread to your friends? Why or why not?

No, great ideas but as a whole it was not good enough.

Would you be willing to try another one of Marc Vietor and Allen Steele ’s performances?

I liked the narrator and would try him.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from ...Where Angels Fear to Tread?

The ending was just too contrived. It felt as if the writer was chasing a deadline.

Any additional comments?

Great ideas but not good enough.
