The Reader's Chair plunges us into the world of Ethan Urquhart, a doctor specializing in child "birth" from a world without women. Ethan travels to Kline Station to discover why a shipment of genetic cultures never arrived on Athos. After initial confusion, he tangles with killers, telepathy, and a mercenary named Elli Quinn. The story takes many diverse twists, and not until the climax are we finally satisfied with the ending. Michael Hanson's warm, rich voice brings sympathy to Ethan, and Carol Cowan speaks with the perfect mix of worldliness and dry humor for the jaded Quinn. Excepting the lack of "end of side" markers, this production is great. A.Z.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
