Blackstone Audio has created a combination impossible to beat in its pairing of The Callahan Chronicals and narrator Barrett Whitener. The collection of stories, initially featured in the science fiction magazine ANALOG, is centered on Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. It can only be found by those who truly need to be there, those who need to share their pain with a bunch of tolerant, caring empaths, human or otherwise. Observations on the nature of society tend to make the listener squirm, but Whitener's approach to his narration is a perfect fit for the attitude of the saloon and its patrons, not reproachful of failings, but laid-back and comforting. This production has the tone of a one-on-one conversation with a remarkable individual whose deep insights illuminate an even more remarkable universe and its inhabitants.
