For the first time on audio, Skyboat Media is proud to present John Brunner‘s classic cautionary tale, THE SHEEP LOOK UP. Narrated by award-winner Stefan Rudnicki.
In this Nebula Award Finalist, Brunner shows us a world where the slow destruction of the Earth is taking its toll. Clean food and water are at a premium. A person can’t breathe without a gas mask. Corporations look to profit from these misfortunes and the government either can’t or won’t do anything to stop it.
As political and social commentary, THE SHEEP LOOK UP can take its place among such masterpieces as FAHRENHEIT 451 and THE HANDMAID’S TALE.
Check out this video on YouTube where John Brunner discusses his writing and science fiction in general.
