Summary

A Matter of Matter


Boldly go to worlds where no one has gone. Meet Chuck Lambert, who, though not exactly a fool, is guilty of letting his imagination get the best of his wits. That's because our young, naive Lambert wants his own planet. But rather than purchase one legally from the Interior Department of the Outer Galactic Control, he soon succumbs to the flashy advertising of an unsavory galactic swindler named Madman Murphy-- the purported King of Planetary Realtors. What Madman is the king of, is selling the unwary a planet that isn't quite right, a planet where one can't sit down because there's something the matter with its matter. And that's exactly what becomes the matter for our unlucky voyager, after Chuck toils for eleven grueling years to scrape together enough money to finally buy a planet of his own. "With a zany cast, Josh Thompson performs four radio dramas of outer space. "A Matter of Matter" features a new version of the American dream--owning a planet while striking it rich with ore that floats. Ah, hucksters can sell anything. In "The Conroy Diary of Fitz Mallory," a fictional character writes about Conroy's outer space adventures. Thompson performs flawlessly, despite the story's nonsense words. "The Planet Makers" create cities and remodel planets. Thompson credibly recounts feats of engineering and an intergalactic poker game. His delivery is smooth despite the crazy antics of the construction crew. "The Obsolete Weapon" features a time-traveling WWII soldier who fights lions, elephants, and gladiators. Humor runs through this audio performance, enhanced by sound effects and much laughter." --AudioFile (Audies Finalist)
