This pressing from the Harlan Ellison Recording Collection is a very funny tale about an old problem among Orthodox Jews--where to find a tenth man to make up a quorum for a service. If you're a congregation of space aliens on a small asteroid, imagine how the difficulty is compounded! Ellison reads at full gallop and without restraint, a little of which would have helped him put the story across better. The recording seems old, and the sound quality is muted. Nonetheless, the story is immensely satisfying and well illustrates that not all science fiction is space opera. Y.R. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
