Science Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

A new Stainless Steel Rat book—hurrah! Slippery Jim DiGriz, a con artist in the 35th century, just wants to retire in peace, but handout-seeking relatives arrive, and before he can say "bowb," he's off to preach racial equality. This is an odd deviation from the usual sci-fi adventures to be sure, but it’s so well told by Phil Gigante that the moralizing is barely noticeable. Sinking his vocal teeth into a performance as good as any one-man play, Gigante is perfectly matched to the material; even a minor medic is easily distinguished. Gigante could take this show on the road and sell out every night. Country hicks drawl, generals bark, bankers smarm, and Slippery Jim wanders through the insanity with a bemused calm, soothing the listener even as porcupine-pigs from space wreak havoc.
