Episode 64 – Randomize by Andy Weir (The Forward Collection)
November 16, 2020 by Mangum Reads
We’re getting back to basics with our foray into the Forward Collection. This collection was brought about by Blake Crouch, where a number of authors would asked to submit stories about a new and upcoming technology that would change the near future in some way. Some “listened” better than others. The next of our curated listenings was Randomize by Andy Weir, quite a bit further into the “hard” science fiction. The background was a heist story, which might have worked without the dry lesson in quantum computing. On the plus side the narrator was good.
