Though it does not state it in the title, this audiobook actually consists of 2 stories by Poul Anderson, the 1961 Hugo winning novelette “The Longest Voyage” and also the 1964 Hugo winning novella “No Truce With Kings”. “The Longest Trip” complies with a younger policeman on board the ship of a latter day Magellan. But this international circuit is on a distant earth, inhabited by human beings that have shed their ancient innovations. As their society has actually rebuilt itself it constructs brand-new caravels that can take them further and farther afield. Yet the new people they find on a remote shore hold a secret to both their past and their future.
“No Truce with Kings” is set in a post-apocalyptic United States, a feudal future comprised of small nations continuously up in arms with each other. As the fights and intrigues unravel, concealed societies and also shadowy organizations start to reveal that their wars do not go unnoticed.
“The Longest Trip” was pleasurable, it reminded me of Robert J. Sawyer’s Farseer, minus the speaking dinosaurs. “No Truce With Kings” was well developed, a cross in between Mad Max as well as Jeremiah, yet the execution was less than I had wished for. Still and all, I delighted in both stories and also it was a great pay attention.
This audiobook is a curious mix of quality and shoddiness. The stories are definitely extremely worthwhile of adaptation, the visitor Tom Teti is respectable if not spectacular, providing just a very little efficiency. Yet the product packaging is simply ordinary poor, missing numbers in the ISBN, the viewers’s name would be unknown except that the packaging has come unglued and also revealed it beneath one of the two cassette owners (a place where nobody would ever before possibly see it!). They likewise disregarded a title, no reference of the incorporation of “The Longest Voyage” appears except on the cassettes themselves and in small font on the back of the plan. The coat layout is almost non-existent providing us only some common clipart. On top of that, the category is classified fantasy when both tales are in fact science fiction. On the other hand the recording and the noise manufacturing is genuinely exceptional! Including as constantly with Dercum Active Publication titles the haunting Dercum Sound songs, which starts to play prior to the story and which re-appears when a tale finishes or when a tape turn is coming up. It is a genuinely superb motif songs for sci-fi or dream sound manufacturing and also one which I am always pleased to hear. But the very best component, the greatest part of this audiobook is the added introduction which is so very ideal therefore well composed, introducing the tales and also the author, actually boosting the experience. Total I’m extremely thankful to have finally located a duplicate of this out of print and also odd audiobook, yet I can not say its best, I need to question if several of the reasons for the autumn of Dercum Sound have anything to do with their lack of follow up? No Truce With Kings Audio Book Download. To obtain such a fantastic home, to perform the recording so well, to create it with such forethought and then to package it in an unpleasant and poorly made bundle … its an actual tale of what may have been.
