Beschrijving

B.J. Harrison reads a science fiction classic by Philip K. Dick. In a post-nuclear world, self-replicating robots are on the loose and thinking independently. Although originally designed to kill Soviet agents, the robots can no longer be trusted. The science fiction story "The Second Variety" from the mid-20th-century examines a world where nuclear war has left behind little of the world known to us and survival becomes increasingly difficult. The story was a finalist for the 1954 Retro-Hugo Award for Best Novelette and was turned into the science fiction horror film "Screamers" (1995).

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was a prolific and influential American writer who worked in the genre of science fiction. His works carry themes such as alternate realities, authoritarian governments and human nature. Dick won several awards, including a Hugo Award for Best Novel for his novel "The Man in the High Castle" (1962). His works have become part of popular culture, including the cult film "Blade Runner" (1982), which is based on Dick’s novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" (1968).
