War of the Worlds: Global Dispatches

Edited by Kevin J. Anderson, read by MacLeod Andres. Brilliance Audio, unabridged, 10 CDs, 12 hours $19.99 ISBN 978-1-4805-3635-7
In this collection, a host of authors—including Janet Berliner, Mike Resnick, Daniel Marcus, and Robert Silverberg—offer up renditions of H.G. Wells’s classic tale of Martian invasion, as seen by the likes of Albert Einstein, Jules Verne, and Teddy Roosevelt. Narrator Andres delivers a solid performance, representing a wide range of voices and styles as he moves from story to story. However, fans of the novel will likely expect more from this—and any—audio edition of War of the Worlds, given Orson Welles’s famous radio production. This audiobook might have benefited from different narrators performing each story. While Andres is an able reader, he’s not a perfect match for all the pieces in this varied collection. A Titan paperback. (Sept.)
