Joe Hill once again hits a home run with this collection of four novellas, each more chilling than the last. He has a lot of help from the superstar narrators who perform the works flawlessly. Special acclaim goes to Wil Wheaton for his performance of "Snapshot," which features a villain who wields a Polaroid camera that erases memory. The most fascinating thing about the story is that the bad guy is eliminated halfway through, but the rest of the story is equally fascinating. Dennis Boutsikaris, with a street-tough delivery, handles the chores of "Aloft," a peculiar story about novice parachutists who land on a semisolid cloud instead of bulleting to Earth. Boutsikaris creates audio images of a scary fantasy reminiscent of “The Twilight Zone.” Stephen Lang’s reading of "Loaded," about a mall security guard who is thrust into the media spotlight of gun rights, is also a standout. Kate Mulgrew’s performance of “Rain” tops off a collection well worth hearing. M.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
