Science Fiction • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1980

Is there intelligent life on the Sun? Some two hundred years from now, a group of humans and extraterrestrials means to find out. Narrator George Wilson demonstrates an extraordinary gift for vocalizing creatures and characters who have no business talking at all. Dolphins, chimpanzees, extraterrestrials of many types, and, oh yes, humans receive careful and thorough attention, even when their accents change in the course of the story. Wilson's narrative passages sound like they were recorded on the "Star Trek" set. Engineering on this volume is, if anything, too clear, as every swallow, breath and moistening of lips comes across on the tapes, reminding us that we're listening to a human, not simply absorbing the story through his fine performance.
