Taylor is simply brilliant. Fantastic short.

Taylor writing & Porter performing. This pair is one of the best. And delivering a truly enjoyable and satisfying thinker of a story in a 30 minute vignette.

A Bite-Sized Time Travel Story

What more can you ask for, it’s a 30 minute book about the paradoxes of time travel. Sure, it’s confusing at times, but… I’m pretty sure that time paradoxes would be as well. The story was fast and interesting and I wanted to know what was going to happen almost from the first 10 seconds.

Throw in narration by the great Ray Porter and you have an easy to dive into Audible Original that is shorter than most podcasts. A bite-sized time travel story that will have you worried about scientists discovering exactly what they discovered.

Excellent Mind-bending Ride

Doesn’t take long to become invested in the characters and the situation in this short mind-bender. Dennis and Ray make an excellent team.

Solid short story

Taylor and Porter is a match made in Heaven. It's an excellent short story with a brilliant performance. The scene changes are a bit quick though, so you got to stay focused to pick up the time travel changes.

Short, but sweet! Om nom nom...

I'm not a fan of short stories on Audible, they're overpriced. However, I am a fan of Dennis E. Taylor, and will devour anything he writes!
This story was so cool! Imaginative, succinct, and dare I say it, an itsy bit of a twist near the end? I love a bit of time travel.
Get a listen to it if you can :-)

Full price for 30 minute short story!

Should have check the play length before buying. 30min short story with simple concept. Not worth it.

This is pure sci fi fun.

Although I am a big fan of Dennis e Tyler it’s not why im giving this such a good rating.
This is 30 minutes of deep science-fiction playfulness with time travel good fun.
Just listen to it you’ll love it.

I only wish Dennis had time travel that could enable him to write more

Dennis E Taylor is my favourite sci fi writer and I love every one of his books. I only wish he had access to some futuristic tech that could enable him to put out new books at a superhuman rate

Short story, but very interesting. Pay attention when listening. I think I'll have to listen a few more times to really 'get' it, but really enjoyable nevertheless.
