Reviews of Prometheus Radio Theatre:

“The author of the Arbiter Chronicles, an award-winning audio drama, vividly brings to life a cast of compelling characters while telling a story that measures the cost of freedom. The far-future military setting should appeal to fans of David Weber’s “Honor Harrington” series as well as the military sf of David Drake.”

- Library Journal, February 15, 2006


“…interesting, entertaining audio theater.”

“… intriguing, sad, yet hopeful and inspiring… Taken Liberty is a tale of truth, friendship, comradery, love, loss, and above all the right to be free. It covers so many genres, you tend to forget that you’re listening to Science Fiction.”

(Serenity Nova) “A gripping read…You will not be able to put the book down…”

(LYG) “Taken Liberty” is the impressive and thoroughly enjoyable first novel by author Steve Wilson. In a style reminiscent of early Heinlein, it blends technology and characterization in a fascinating story that tackles such diverse themes as sexuality, spirituality, genetic manipulation, slavery and bigotry in a novel with characters it’s a pleasure to get to know.”

(R. M. Anson)”I actually stumbled across a sample chapter from this book on the author’s web page while I was searching the web for something else entirely. I glanced at it, started to read it, finished the chapter, and found I was hooked. I had to buy the book. I wasn’t disappointed. Money well spent! I’m looking forward to reading more of this author’s work in the future.”

“This is so remminiscant of the old BBC Red Dwarf productions or the Star Wars Dramas that were broadcasted back in the day. There are alot of sterotypical science fiction personalities. But it still is one incredible ride.”

(JJG) “Believable characters with actual depth. ‘Taken Liberty’ is a story that allows the reader to ‘see’ the universe that is created, let’s one ‘live’ and ‘experience’ what is going on in the story. This was the most enjoyable read I have had in a long time. I can’t wait to see what the Arbiters get into next.”

(Andrew B.) “It is a rich character driven story that will grip you almost from the first page with suspense of what comes next. No great space battles here, just solid story telling! Never fear that you need to hear the radio plays to understand this stand-alone story, he jumps right in and draws you in the first two pages. As Mr. Wilson unfolds the story the reader is introduced to each character with humor and you begin to care for each as if they were your own friends. His characters and universe is layered in complexity that will intrigue your curiosity for more as each page turns, and the plot thickens riveting your attention until the final page.”

“And when the acting troupe next takes on ‘Three Skeleton Key,’ the tour-de-force of horror often associated with Vincent Price, their lower-key take on the tale of tropical mayhem and madness is at least as spine-chilling as Price’s melodramatic version.”

“…A well written story – it has the feel of old style radio drama.”

-Tim Russ
Star of Star Trek: Voyager

 


“For the past few years, Prometheus Radio Theatre has been breathing life into a neglected art form — original radio drama. With a professional-caliber troupe of actors, live sound effects, original music and solid science fiction scripts, the continuing ARBITER CHRONICLES series is entertaining and satisfying. Listen to a few episodes and you’ll want to hear more. It’s a real treat to see the Prometheus gang perform live, where you can sit back, close your eyes, pretend you’re listening to the radio, and let your imagination roam the stars.”

-Howard Weinstein

“The episodes are quite entertaining and interesting science fiction. There is definite progression with the characters from episode to episode and we also learn more about them. I heartily recommend buying their CDs and seeing them if you are at a convention where they perform.”
