224 minutes - Unabridged audiobook
An unabridged audio collection of three stories that chronicle the lives of people striving to survive on Earth, under the rule of aliens.
“Okanoggan Falls” by Carolyn Ives Gilman — A housewife subtly resists the forceable relocation of her townspeople by an alien military captain.
“Laws of Survival” by Nancy Kress — A woman must make dogs act correctly for aliens in order to stay alive.
“How Music Begins” by James Van Pelt — A junior high school band director struggles to keep the band members’ spirits up after they’ve been shanghaied, by unknown and unseen aliens, and confined to a dormitory and practice auditorium.
"Each story in Aliens Rule is quite riveting, so it is unlikely that the listeners mind will wander while listening to the three CDs - or at least mine did not, which is something that often happens when I listen to music. In short, Aliens Rule is a collection of well-chosen, well-read stories." - Cathy Green, SFRevu
