Where are the movies?

Absolutes & Other Stories is an incredibly good story collection from a favorite author. There's a good mix of stories from the more literary (August Rains) to the extremely fun (Silence is Golden) to the pure science fiction (Absolutes).

Solid set of stories

I've listened to a good many audio books, and this is pretty darn good. The narrator does a good job with the stories, and the author does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life through his words. There's a good enough mix and story types to please just about anybody. Highly recommended, especially if you are looking for something you can listen to during a few hour drive or flight. Also, has good relisten value. I've listened to each of the story multiple times when I was looking for something short to fill in the time between appointments or what not.
