In these three linked novellas, Silverberg introduces listeners to a world of the far future, creating a saga of mystery, romance, and renewal. Stefan Rudnicki portrays the “Watcher,” the narrator of the book, with stoicism, authority, and clarity. The social order of future Earth is dominated by various guilds, and the Watcher belongs to the one that must prevent aliens from invading. Rudnicki’ s changes in pacing and accent are subtle yet effective, and his performance highlights the Watcher’s emotions—anguish over his failure to prevent an alien advance as well as his eventual optimism in spite of an uncertain future. Using lighter tones, Rudnicki adeptly portrays Avluela, a young Flier who travels with the Watcher. The melancholy, romantic mood of the story is enhanced by Rudnicki.
