Short, but well read.

Subject: Last Enemy Review
Mark Nelson knocks another great H. Beam Piper novel out of the park. Nelson's pace, pronunciation and character differentiation are spot on. I'm actually worried I won't be able to read/hear any Piper books without hearing Mark Nelson's wonderful voice.
H. Beam Piper's novel involving Paratime officer Verkan Vall is a fascinating weave of parallel universe politics, science and mystery. Id say if you enjoyed the TV series "Fringe" the story line that Piper weaves is for you (in a time before, parallel or evolving into Fringe, ha!!) An excellent novel for listening. Piper keeps the pace and mystery going as well as explaining and expanding his parallel dimensional worlds. Fun!
