Nimoy and de Lancie, founders of Alien Voices, take the leads in this dramatization of H.G. Wells's science-fiction classic. William Shatner puts in a cameo as king of the ant people who live below the lunar surface and who are discovered by a crackpot British scientist and his next-door neighbor. De Lancie once told this reviewer he and Nimoy founded Alien Voices largely to have fun. This they do to the delight of listeners (though perhaps to the chagrin of Wells's ghost). Whatever the production lacks in finesse, it more than makes up for in sheer verve. This is particularly enticing bait to lure younger listeners away from the boob tube.
