SHADOW SHOW All-New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury

by | Read by F. Murray Abraham, Neil Gaiman, Kate Mulgrew, George Takei, and a Full Cast

Science Fiction • 12 hrs. • Anthology • © 2012

Weller’s lengthy introduction to these 26 stories fully justifies the tribute being made to the late Ray Bradbury and the diverse reach of his work. Narrators match the tone and atmosphere of each story, with writers including rare bits of insight about the craft and art of storytelling. Contributing authors include John McNally, Margaret Atwood, Charles Yu, and Audry Niffenegger, to name a few, and narrators include F. Murray Abraham, Robert Petkoff, and Neil Gaiman. Gaiman wrote and delivers “The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury,” giving a cool, relaxed performance in a low, confiding voice. George Takei gives an outstanding and loud performance of Atwood’s “Headlife.” “A Second Homecoming,” written by Bradbury, is read by his friend Abraham, who mines its meaning, irony, and wit. “The Phone Call,” by John McNally, is read by Petkoff with empathy as its protagonist talks to his dead mother and his younger self over their old rotary telephone. This production features an array of measured yet expressive readings. S.C.A. 2013 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
