Sound Affects: A Radio Playground
9:33 PM
Special Segments: Spaxter


A tongue-in-cheek futuristic thriller featuring a mind-reading gumshoe named Sam Spaxter who uncovers a bizarre plot by a self-styled Egyptian god to steal the creative essence from all the great minds in the world using a device which he has constructed at the heart of the Great Pyramid. Spaxter is a cyberpunk Shadow in a fast and foolish future, complete with an orbiting space weapons platform-turned-nightclub called The Raygun Club, all leading to an epic energy beam battle that changes the future of humanity forever (what else?). Plenty of wacky characters, sensual special effects, and great electronic music.

One from the Soundings series by Jeff Green. Entered into the Mark Time Science Fiction Audio Hall of Fame.
