Six unabridged Science Fiction stories from the past depicting the future which is NOW... some frightening and believable predictions that may well still come true. A great listen.

A great listen. This is science fiction at its literate best with every story a little gem. They include a clock that reverses the order of history, a potion that prolongs youth, a machine that disintegrates matter, the prospect of the earth burning to a crisp from the heat of the sun and the effects of the absence of gravity. All these stories when first written were no more than fascinating and exciting fantasies, but time and progress have given them a terrifying touch of modern-day reality.

If you liked that story, you'll love the short story, "Inconstant Moon" by Larry Niven, published nearly a century later.

    Another audio book for the bus ride to work. This one much shorter - only six short stories, one of which I'd just heard in the previous anthology. But this collection cannot be blamed for that. On the whole, this was a more satisfactory selection, and I enjoyed listening to it. I actually felt it ended too soon, as I'd neglected to download a new title and was left with four bus rides before I could reload.

    What an interesting concept . . . to read a few short stories that were written in an old British style with a scifi theme! I already enjoy reading the classics, and the introduction of a scifi concept made these stories quite interesting.

    Interesting Sci Fi but the stories show there age when a few have casual mention of slavery. It was my first time reading something from written from that time that wasn't filtered. Since I hadn't thought about it before hand it caught me off guard and broke the immersion in the story.

    Interesting short stories, however, many of the social themes are (unsurprisingly but disappointingly) very dated.

    Five assorted old sci-fi stories. One great, three ok, and one that was good until the end where it just peters out. Audiobook brilliantly read by Nicky Henson.

    A fair to middling collection of proto-sci-fi stories.
