The Stars my Brothers

Official Blurb

Published in the May, 1962 issue of Amazing Stories “The Stars, My Brothers” gives us a re-animated astronaut plucked from a century in the past and presented with an alien world where the line between humans and animals is blurred.

My Review

This is a cool short sci fi story set a couple of hundred years into the future. It deals with a man frozen who is then woken up a hundred years later and the worlds he finds himself inhabiting.

It's not all ray guns and combat, but rather a more intellectual look at human attitudes and their relationship with aliens/animals.

So, as I've hinted, we dont have ray guns and space combat, but we do have , space ships, aliens, other worlds, a chase, high tech, and all wrapped around a neat little story that will keep the sci fi fan happy.

The reader is excellent, he doesn't do "voices" but he has a pacing and style that is very good.

Reading 3/3
Production 2/3
Story 2/3
