Another Good Story by Murray Leinster

Where does Dimension X rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Better than many radio broadcasts. NBC drew from an experienced talent pool and backed it with good Foley artists.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Captain was a good leader. He had to juggle priorities under stress to try to salvage a multi-pronged mission.
