Norm Sherman’s Drabblecast doesn’t do audiobooks right. At least – it doesn’t do them the way I like them. Sherman, like a small fraction of audiobook producers, has decided to place a music bed atop all his readings. I hate that.
But since Robert Sheckley’s The Store Of The Worlds isn’t available anywhere else, in the audio format, you may want to check it out anyway. Robert Sheckley was a great writer, and the music bed, while both distracting and ham handed manipulative, doesn’t wholly ruin the story.
