Earphones Award Winner

Science Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jesse Vilinsky and Connie Willis have a marvelous time in this delightful homage to road trips, old Westerns, romance, alien hunters, and, well, aliens. When Francie arrives in Roswell during the UFO Festival, she's trying to stop a friend's UFO-themed wedding. Then she's abducted by an alien who is on an unusual quest. When they're joined by an elderly gambler, a UFO hunter, an RV owner, and a mysterious hitchhiker, the adventure is on. The frantic UFO hunter has a nasal whine, the RV owner is "aw-shucks" great, the gambler's quavery enthusiasm is grin inducing. Vilinsky also knows exactly what a teenage alien's texts sound like. Never has "No, no, no" been so variously and hysterically rendered. Throughout, Vilinsky's technicolor performance radiates the story's essential kindness and joy. A.C.S.
