    Livre Ebook Tau Zero (S.F. MASTERWORKS) – 8p2.us Tau Zero has always been one of my favorite booksdefinitely my favorite science fiction book. But the narration on the audible version is terrible. Neil Hellegers is simply awful. His narration is so distracting that I had to stop listening after half an hour. If I could return it, I would.

    Review Ä eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ó Poul Anderson Livre Ebook Tau Zero (S.F. MASTERWORKS) – 8p2.us I enjoyed this short story. It's a tale of being confined to a space craft on a long voyage and the social effects on the crew. Where it fell down for me was the fact that it's scientifically inaccurate. Even at the speed of light they'd still take 40,000 years to cross our galaxy.
