Century of Progress, A

Performed by:
Norman Dietz

For centuries two meg-powers from the future have been waging war for control of timelines of history. Alan Norlund, a WWII airman vet, is promised a lifesaving cure for his granddaughter, if he will undertake a mission 50 years back in time to the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. Hitler with his 'angels' from the opposing power would like to take over our timeline and 1933 Chicago may be just the place to start.

Norman Dietz

Norman Dietz is perhaps best known these days as a voiceover artist and narrator of unabridged audiobooks, a craft he has worked at with singular success since 1986. AudioFile magazine named him one of the fifty “Best Voices of the Century,” a listing of what the editors called “the gold mine of talented narrators who have defined the craft in the last 25 years of the 20th century.” He has recorded well over 100 audiobooks during his years in the studio. Several of his recordings have been AudioFile Earphones Award winners; another was an American Library Association Notable Recording. Now and then during his career, the actor has also made his living on stage both in New York and on tour. He has also worked in both radio and television, and he continues occasionally to lend his voice to documentary voiceovers. A writer as well as an actor, his own comic novel, Nailing It, has been released as an audiobook in a recording voiced by Norman himself.
