Would it be warranted to use this for chapters 9-12 and upload them again, or is it best to move on? The existing MP3s aren't too bad. Although the sound quality is a bit on the low side, it's not distracting or painful to listen to. And your reading is such high caliber that it is very easy to for...

Responding to Kiki, I am impressed with this book. I imagine this recording will fuel some purchases of Mr. Harrison's other works, such as Planet of No Return , which we won't get to record. Maybe that was the plan all along. Why else would this one book happen to slip into the public domain? I po...

Thanks for saying so. 8)

I was feeling a bit of stage fright when I listened to your recordings and then read that Cori will be finishing the book.

Fortunately, Daniel, the sentence structure and words aren't tripping us up. I spent 6+ hours yesterday recording a less than 29 minute solo, carefully checking pronunciations of words like Aesculapius and demoniacal , and poking my way cautiously through some long sentences. The last sentence, whi...

Hey Daniel, I "reviewed" Chapter 13 from beginning to end. It sounds super, like a proper professional recording. Your bree-OWN dialect isn't so strong that it causes any harm to work's continuity. Thanks. That's the kind of magic I can work with my generic-brand headset mic, combined with an amoun...

Who is speaking the highlighted dialog? “What you gonna do?” Telt asked, even his natural exuberation stilled by this. Brion only shook his head as the words penetrated. What could he do? What could possibly be done? “Follow me,” a voice said in guttural Disan through the opening of a rear window. T...

Okay, I tried fiddling with Windows before starting Audacity, and it did keep the settings this time. But, of course, that means I have to stop and start Audacity each time I want to change the sensitivity.

Ah well.

Thanks for the help. I think I got something that sounds ... okay enough :-)

I don't. Hys makes his grand appearance in XIII and stays in through XIX. There's a "hysteresis" in V, but it's not related. Hmm. In 13, they speak about him like the reader has already been introduced. He does make his entrance in 13, though. Whatever. Is it just me, or is this a particularly corn...
