A dramatic reading of the science fiction novella by author and critic Samuel R. Delany. Adapted for radio by the author, who also acts as narrator, it is a poetic and nightmarish vision of the future, with a conjectural view of the changes in social mores brought by an extra-solar expansion of humanity. The complex electronic score was especially written by Susan Schweers. The other voices belong to Randa Haines, Walter Harris, Jerry Matz, Joan Tanner, and Phoebe Wray. Technical production by David Rapkin and Ed Woodard. Production assistance by Neal Conan. Directed by Daniel Landau. The story first appeared in Worlds of Tomorrow magazine, published by Galaxy Publishing Corp.
