In this "sizzling" tale, earth falls sunward, sending temperatures soaring and human hordes uselessly fleeing north. Lois Nettleton, an original cast member, narrates and performs all parts. This audio re-creation of the TV broadcast harks back to 1950's style radio presentations and is thoroughly enjoyable. One tires of hearing doors open and close, but the sound effects and music generally enhance, not intrude on, the story. The listener's imagination paints a far more spectacular picture of the flaming orb in the sky and the parched terrain of New York City than any TV screen could.
