Publisher's Summary

Somewhere, deep in the vast blackness of space, a wormhole waits to be found. Dorn Voss needs to find it. But, the stakes are high and he isn’t the only one looking. Natural occurring wormholes are the lone means of intergalactic travel in the universe. Whoever controls them gains riches and power unimaginable. The coordinates of one such wormhole, the Mescalaro Gap, are lost, hidden behind conspiracy and murder. With a prize so great, many a man or alien would do anything to find those coordinates and control the universe.
In Where the Ships Die, author William C. Dietz creates a dense adventure filled with complex characters and multiple storylines all crashing headlong towards one final confrontation.

8th Grade Writing by an Accomplished Writer

Would you try another book from William C. Dietz and/or Bill Quinn?

I would try another Dietz book, but no fiction by Quinn ever again.

What could William C. Dietz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Dietz's writing in this resembles his other books sometimes, but most times you get the idea that he wrote this when he was in 8th grade. The descriptions of the main characters are stereotyped shells as opposed to his characters in the Legion of the Damned series. It was almost as if this book was written as a satire of his other books or novice author wrote it in Dietz's "style" and they slapped the Dietz name on it.I have read or listened to almost all of William C. Dietz books and I had to stop listening to this on about half way through. I bought this on the strength of his name alone. I wish I had read the Amazon book reviews on the written version first.I am as disappointed as a long term reader can be.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bill Quinn?

Almost anyone else, but Donald Coren was fine in Dietz's other books. I least I could track the plot and not have to stop and start the player all the time.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It completed my library of Dietz books. I just wish he hadn't wrote it, or if he was going to in any case, had written it with his normal care.It also taught me to read other site's reviews of the written form of the book even if the author is one of your favorites.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy William C. Dietz, don't buy this book.

Dreadful narration

A decent book but I was completely put off by the narrators voice and could hardly stand to listen to it. I believe it is computer generated? The inflection is off and it goes from one idea to another with barely a breath between sentences making it difficult to follow.

My advice is to buy it in paperback or kindle and read it yourself.
