Is Greed good? The future of Earth and all of mankind may hang on that one question. And George Marquis Lorrilard-a space age ace-pilot, adventurer and fortune-hunter-is just the man to answer it. The world is divided between Asia and the United Continents-two great super powers locked in eternal warfare. But the balance of power is about to shift in Asia's favor. They have developed a top-secret weapon-the cohesion projector-that could lead to annihilation on an unprecedented scale.... But as far as Lorrilard is concerned, the number one problem with the projector is that it stands in the way of his profits. Can he find a way to subvert the powerful weapon and resume his enterprising exploits? For millions of people on Earth survival may ultimately depend on the power of one man's Greed. Want thought-provoking intergalactic action, adventure, and suspense? Get all that and more as the audio version of Greed soars into thrilling new worlds of sound design. Also includes the science fiction adventures, "The Final Enemy," in which Earth discovers it faces a distant, yet devastating new foe, the identity of which is the most shocking blow of all; and "The Automagic Horse," the story of a Hollywood special effects wizard who is about to apply his movie magic to a project that is out of this world. "A wonderfully rich and textured experience, complete with realistic sound effects and moody atmospheric music." -Publishers Weekly * Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award winner for 2008

"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"
