Dimension X, Vol. 2 Audiobook

Dimension X, Vol. 2

Author: Hollywood 360 Narrator: Various Performers, Various Performers Release Date: October 2016

"Adventures in time and space ... told in future tense..." was famous narrator Norman Rose's opening to the radio show with some of radio's earliest science fiction, adapted from masters of the genre. Dimension X was one of radio's first adult science-fiction series and made its mark by adapting short stories by acknowledged masters in the field, including Isaac Asimov, Clifford D. Simak, and William Tenn. Scriptwriters Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts, who also contributed their own original scripts, adapted the original stories. At the start of every broadcast, host Norman Rose promised us "adventures in time and space, told in future tense" and you knew you were about to be transported from your everyday existence to somewhere completely different-maybe even a distant planet. Radio was a fertile medium for science fiction. It was easy to visit other planets, interact with aliens, or fly in a rocket ship simply by using your imagination. Dimension X debuted April 8, 1950 and completed its broadcast run September 29, 1951. "It was not until the 1950s that science fiction radio really hit its stride, even as science fiction was beginning to appear on television as well. Radio programs such as...NBC's Dimension X were anthology series that offered a variety of exciting tales of future technology, with a special focus on space exploration (including alien invasion), though both series also often reflected contemporary anxieties about the dangers of technology."-M. Keith Booker, author of Science Fiction Television, praise for the series

X Minus One, Vol. 1

Author: Hollywood 360 Narrator: Various Performers, Various Performers Release Date: June 2015

X Minus One, widely regarded as one of the finest science fiction dramas ever produced for radio, was broadcast on NBC from 1955 until 1958. It began as a revival of NBC's Dimension X, which ran for just a year and a half, from 1950 to 1951. Though the first fifteen episodes of X Minus One were merely new versions of Dimension X episodes, the rest were adaptations of newly published works of science fiction stories by some of the genre's top authors, including Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Robert A. Heinlein, Frederik Pohl, and Theodore Sturgeon, along with some original scripts by NBC staff writers Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts. Each episode opened with the introduction: "Countdown for blastoff ... X minus five, four, three, two, X minus one ... Fire! From the far horizons of the unknown come transcribed tales of new dimensions in time and space. These are stories of the future; adventures in which you'll live in a million could-be years on a thousand may-be worlds. The National Broadcasting Company in cooperation with Street and Smith, publishers of Astounding Science Fiction, presents ... X Minus One." Collected here are twelve episodes, including "The C-Chute" adapted from Isaac Asimov, "Skulking Permit" adapted from Robert Sheckley, and three episodes adapted from Theodore Sturgeon's stories.

Author: Ann Angel (Editor) Narrator: Various Performers, Various Performers Release Date: March 2015

Fifteen top young-adult authors let us in on some provocative secrets in this fascinating collection of short fiction that will have listeners talking. A baby no one knows about.

Acclaimed author Ann Angel brings together some of today's most gifted YA authors as they explore unique perspectives on secrets, in genres as diverse as the writers themselves: Do they make you stronger or weaker?

The one thing these stories have in common is how they reveal the characters' secret selves buried underneath—whether they want them to be shared or not. With stories by: Ann Angel, Kerry Cohen, Louise Hawes, Varian Johnson, erika l. kaufman, Ron Koertge, E. M. Kokie, Chris Lynch, Kekla Magoon, Zoë Marriott, Katy Moran, J. L.
