The Hugo Award-winning classic sci-fi novel, brought to life with a full cast, sound effects and cinematic music! The Beyond started with the Stations orbiting the stars nearest Earth. The Great Circle the interstellar freighters traveled was long, but not unmanageable, and the early Stations were emotionally and politically dependent on Mother Earth. The Earth Company which ran this immense operation reaped incalculable profits and influenced the affairs of nations. Then came Pell, the first station centered around a newly discovered living planet. The discovery of Pell's World forever altered the power balance of the Beyond. Earth was no longer the anchor which kept this vast empire from coming adrift, the one living mote in a sterile universe. But Pell was just the first living planet. Then came Cyteen, and later others, and a new and frighteningly different society grew in the farther reaches of space. The importance of Earth faded and the Company reaped ever smaller profits as the economic focus of space turned outward. But the powerful Earth Fleet was still a presence in the Beyond, and Pell Station was to become the last stronghold in a titanic struggle between the vast, dynamic forces of the rebel Union and those who defended Earth's last, desperate grasp for the stars. Performed by Karen Novack, Holly Adams, Zeke Alton, Robb Moreira, James J. Johnson, John Kielty, James Konicek, Triya Leong, Rob McFadyen, Daniel Llaca, Keith Richards, Wyn Delano, Tanja Milojevic, Jason Keller, Peter Holdway, Niuhsa Nawab, Tony Nam, Anthony Palmini, KenYatta Rogers, Colleen Delany, Debi Tinsley, Yasmin Tuazon, Eric Messner, Nanette Savard, Marni Penning, Brandon Burton, Joe Mallon, Richard Rohan, Bradley Foster Smith, Steve Wannall, Nora Achrati, Chris Davenport, Alejandro Ruiz, Sara Matsui-Colby, Terence Aselford, Scott McCormick, James Lewis, Ken Jackson, and Jacob Yeh.Show more

The sorcerer has powerful enemies, and what started as a simple job as hired swords becomes an epic quest that takes them across the known world, and one that will determine the world's fate. With enemies ringing the horizon behind and unimaginable peril ahead, their only refuge is honor, and the only path left to take is the HEROES ROAD.'Show more
