Beschreibung von Audible

Science fiction author John W. Campbell was by most accounts an unpleasant man, but at least his enthusiasm for space travel is infectious. In Islands of Space, the listener enters a 22nd-century world of eccentric physicists, faster-than-light spaceships, interplanetary war, and weaponized heat beams.

Oliver Wyman has won numerous Best Voice awards in different genres, but he professes to a love for performing science fiction titles. He can vocalize the byzantine explanations of a mad scientist and the telepathic communications of aliens with the same aplomb. This versatile actor will take listeners to Venus and back, kinetically evoking the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

Inhaltsangabe

As Earth's faster-than-light spaceship hung in the void between galaxies, Arcot, Wade, Morey, and Fuller could see below them, like a vast shining horizon, the mass of stars that formed their own island universe. Morey worked a moment with his slide rule, then said, "We made good time! Twenty-nine light years in ten seconds! Yet you had it on at only half power...."

Arcot pushed the control lever all the way to full power. The ship filled with the strain of flowing energy, and sparks snapped in the air of the control room as they raced at an inconceivable speed through the darkness of intergalactic space. But suddenly, far off to their left and far to their right, they saw two shining ships paralleling their course! They held grimly to the course of the Earth ship, bracketing it like an official guard. The Earth scientists stared at them in wonder. "Lord," muttered Morey, "where can they have come from?"
