This first volume in a five-volume anthology of Orson Scott Card's short stories features 11 chilling tales that provoke the dreaded dark side of the listener's imagination
A sinful man finally faces his conscience in the form of a baby-like creature that haunts his waking hours. A thrill-seeking playboy uses a time machine to experience the excitement of death without actually dying. A child having trouble adjusting to a new town withdraws into a mysterious computer game, where he meets imaginary friends who have the same names as boys who have recently gone missing.
Stories include: "Eumenides in the Fourth Floor Lavatory", "Quietus", "Deep Breathing Exercises", "Fat Farm", "Closing the Timelid", "Freeway Games", "A Sepulchre of Songs", "Prior Restraint", "The Changed Man and the King of Words", "Memories of My Head", and "Lost Boys".
"One of the genre's most convincing storytellers. An important volume." (Library Journal)
"Definitive.... A series of introductions and afterwords offering Card's thoughts on his life and his writing are as absorbing as the stories." (Publishers Weekly)

I loved all the stories. Well worth the credit I spent on it. Will probably check out the other books in this series.
The person claiming there was incestuous rape in the first story lied. Don't know why they lied and there's no way to report their review for being a fake review.

Masterful but unpleasant
TL/DR: not sure if I will keep it or refund it. If I do keep it, I'll definitely not keep all the stories.
1. All the stories are excellently done. OSC is master of words, no doubt about that.
2. However, these are stories about... unpleasant people. Like, really unpleasant ones. In life, you would not want to meet them, you would avoid them, you would exclude them from your acquaintances, etc. So... why waste time reading about them?
There are 3-4 stories that are not like that. But most are.
3. Performance: mostly good. I love Rudnicki. Others are hit and miss, especially the one with the whiny voice and the one with the really nasty rasping one.
- Kinda Neat
The first story contains incestuous rape. I can't stop thinking about. My stomach won't stop hurting. I've never left a review before and I'm so disappointed that it's negative. I feel I need to warn others. Orson was my favorite writer but I feel retraumatized.
Can't stop listening to Card
Narrators are amazing, loved Fat Farm and Deep Breathing Exercises the most. Got to have those twists at the end.
