    Most of my stories start off as westerns; that's how I recognize Asteroid of Fear for what it is. This is a cowboy opera about a sodbuster having to fight off and win the respect of the rough men of a local mining camp. Only, Asteroid of Fear takes place on an -- wait for it -- asteroid, with the silent remains of an ancient civilization all around. And while the trappings are interesting, strip them away, and you have nothing but a B-movie script full of questionable writing choices. Still, it has charm, and is full of Golden Age optimism, which is a nice change of pace from the endlessly dark nonsense clogging the bookshelves at the moment.

    Glad I did this on streaming audio and didn’t pay for it. The story is clipped and terse, and only original because it’s in space instead of Texas.

    A farmer with a mysterious path brings his wife and family to an outpost and sets up shop. He encounters the local toughs, managing to drive them away as they they wear vengeance. The farmer befriends many of the local folk but still fears that the toughs may be back so he heads to town to clear up the problem. A showdown ensues. Welcome to the old west -- oops, no, this takes place an asteroid. I thought I recognized the plot of this very short audio book.
