Critic reviews

"The landmark series was Dimension X, which was broadcast by NBC....It was the first radio series to treat science fiction in an adult way." (Mike Ashley, Transformations: The History of the Science-Fiction Magazine 1950 to 1970)

Average

I purchased this because I enjoy listening to old radio dramas like the twilight zone. The quality and storyline of this collection is not as good as the twilight zone. I found the stories predictable and not very memorable. If your looking for something to pass the time or fill a gap, this is perfect. Otherwise, I would skip this one.
