Description

Once there had been a single government of Earth controlled by the western races, but the long-oppressed people of Asia finally struck back with a "cohesion projector." In an instant, the device established a solid, invisible wall of space-creating a dividing line between the superpowers, with the Asiatic Federation inside and the United Continents outside.Both powers are tenuously perched on the brink of war until George Marquis Lorrilard comes along. A sometime lieutenant of the pitiful handful of space guards known as the United Continents Space Navy, he's used the experience to become a space exploiter. Far less driven by altruism than by the ferocious thirst and hunger of greed, Lorrilard sets a course to change forever the fate of Earth and the stars.

Professional reviews

"GREED is actually three stories, with the title story the shortest. All are read verbatim by R.F. Daley while other actors provide the dialogue. The effect generally works well, and most of the numerous actors give honest performances, with only slight stereotyping of the villainous characters. "The Automagic Horse," the third and longest story, gives its actors more time to shine in their portrayal of 1920s Hollywood. Proto-feminists and faux-gangsters emote with gusto, and Daley remains steady in his narration, easily reining in Hubbard's somewhat dated prose. Professional sound effects and music are used effectively throughout the production, enhancing the period feel. A.Z.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
