This novella, written as a series of letters from time-traveler Roy Colton in Atlantis to a colleague elsewhere in the ancient world, is not well suited to audio. The first cassette, as Colton enters the mind of an heir to the throne and first surveys the wondrous city, is monotonous. The story picks up later as the prince notices the "demon" time-traveler hiding within his mind, setting up a confrontation and dialogue between them and giving Tom Parker the chance to go beyond the conversational tone of a letter. Parker effectively portrays both Colton and the prince, but the structure of the story gives him too little to do. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
