Summary

From A Year in the Borderlands author Kevin Candela comes another thrilling double feature, drive-in style! 

In "Shore Leave", shipwreck survivors Heatherine Daniels and Sheila Grange penetrate deep into a mysterious cavern only to discover there is much more to their desert island than coconut palms, seashells, and sunburn. 

Then, in "Rasputin and Fulcanelli Ain't Dead", the legendary Russian survivor and the mysterious French alchemist join forces to challenge the bizarre and harrowing gauntlet that stands between them and their objective - a magical mouth harp that compels poor Daniel, its cursed owner, to play it perpetually as he dances across fields of clover in some place far removed from our world.

Really enjoyed this one

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great double feature of short stories. Both are sci fi, and very well written. The narration is also done well. If you want a quick listen to get through a leg of your business trip, or awful commute, this would be a great choice. At least, if you are a fan of the genre.

Quick and Fun Sci-Fi

Like the first Double Feature, this book contains 2 stories broken up by a brief intermission. Imagine an audible drive-in experience.

The first story, had an original take on a classic piece of sci-fi. Adding on layers of great characters and engaging scenes took it to the next level. It was the shorter of the two, but a perfect warmup.

The second story was the longer and followed two immortals on their quest. Action, intrigue and lots of humor made this the more entertaining of the two for me.

I was provided this audiobook free of charge in exchange for my honest review, and while I preferred the stories in the first double feature, these two are still absolutely worth a listen.

Two Sci Fi Short Stories

Shore Leave and Rasputin and Fulcanelli Ain't Dead were both interesting listens. I thought the author was very creative with these stories. I think my favorite of the two was Rasputin. They were short and I wish they'd been a bit longer. No doubt they were sci fi as they were definitely neat and on the odd side. This was a great job by Kevin Candela.

Gary Bennett's narration was a perfect fit for these tales. He had a good tone and added mystery to them.

SF must stand for Super Fun!!

I really enjoyed these short stories, and the way they were put together like a drive in double feature! Great science fiction fantasy, wrapped in small packages. The stories developed quickly and smoothly, driving solidly to the end! If you love witty, well done sifi, I highly recommend this set! Especially if you don’t have time for a full novel and just want a quick entertaining listen.

I have been given a free copy of this book in return for an unbiased review.
