Description

It was a miracle of science that permitted human beings to live, if not forever then for a long, long time. Somec created two societies: that of people who lived out their normal span and died and those who slept away the decades, skipping over the intervening years. It allowed great plans to be put into motion. It allowed interstellar empires to be built. It came near to destroying humanity. After a long, long time of decadence and stagnation, a few seed ships were sent out to save our species. Each carried human embryos and supplies and teaching robots and one man. The Worthing Saga is the story of one of these men, Jason Worthing, and the world he found for the seed he carried.

This is a full cast recording, with an afterword read by Orson Scott Card.

“A gripping story…Even though the book is decades old, it could pass for being written this year. Technology advances, but relationships and moral dilemmas are timeless, and both are Mr. Card’s stock in trade.”—SFFAudio

“Brick performs with his usual enthusiasm and engagement.”—AudioFile

“Brick maintains his interest and enthusiasm throughout.”—Kliatt
