Ah, it’s pleasant to hear another installment of the Brad Lansky series. This is the seventh, and is preceded by Brad Lansky and the Rogue Era in which a rogue planet passes so close to the Earth that it knocks the Earth out of its familiar orbit. Long hard winters followed by short searing summers make living on the Earth difficult. The orbit is chaotic and GAIA, with its vast computational ability, is called upon to figure out the future of Earth’s orbit. How long with the Earth be habitable?
As for Brad Lansky (the “tech-tainted human”), Alex John, and their AI-enabled ship (the Full Advantage) the story begins with them seeking Brinn, who is somewhere on the Earth. The story is hard science fiction, and the scientific ideas come at you in dense waves.
The Brad Lansky audio dramas have a distinctive and enjoyable style that is continued in this installment. The most prominent feature is how much these audio dramas leave to the listener’s imagination. Often a scene trails off into a piece of music that creates space for emotion or action from a scene to fill one’s mind. I must emphasize the need to use some good headphones to get the most from any Protophonic production. And I also urge you to give yourself to it. Put the phone on “Do Not Disturb” and let yourself be taken away by it.
It’s a marvelous experience.
