Parker's voice has a nasal quality that adds commonality to this eerie story of colonial life on Mars. Manfred Steiner is a 10-year-old autistic child, born on Mars, who Arnie Kott of the Water Worker's Union suspects may be able to manipulate time. In this venue, Dick discusses reality and explores madness as a bridge to other realms. Parker's precise reading style alleviates the intensity of the drama and sometimes frenzied action and helps the listener hang on to the story line. Using consistent pacing and tone, Parker leads us through extraterrestrial real estate scams, adultery, suicide and schizophrenic episodes. This interesting social commentary and fascinating view of the future appeals to the philosopher in us all. S.C.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
