Mark - I wasn't sure what you wanted done with that doc file, so I merged it with your PDF to make a 2-page PDF. :)
THANK YOU! That is what I wished, but didn't know how to achieve it. I sent the two pieces so they could be separately printed, but merging them is better.

Re: SOLO - From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne - icequeen

Here is my summary for the catalog: Jules Verne takes aim at some amusing stereotypes of Americans in this story of a pre-rocketry attempt to shoot a cannonball to the Moon. Those Yankees don’t do anything by halves! His means is a Columbiad cannon so enormous that it must be bored 900 feet into the...

Chapter 26: The long-awaited moment - FIRE! And we're expected to believe J.T. Maston survived because, of course... bumbles bounce! :D https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/fromtheearthtothemoon_26_verne_128kb.mp3 Chapter 27 proves that manmade climate change was a thing in 1865. :D https://librivo...

Re: SOLO - From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne - icequeen

Chapter 24 insinuates the nonsense you can build an observatory on top of a mountain in under a year - :D https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/fromtheearthtothemoon_24_verne_128kb.mp3 And Chapter 25 insinuates the nonsense you can pack ALL THAT, safely stowed away, in the interior of the projectile...

Chapter 22 is up, wherein we learn that The Lunatics want to go to the Moon, too! :D https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/fromtheearthtothemoon_22_verne_128kb.mp3 Such drama! I vote for going to the moon! Perhaps not! Chapter 23 reveals that you have a chance of being eaten on the way! (And what is...

Re: SOLO - From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne - icequeen

We move on in our work. Sinking a pit 60 ft across and 900 ft deep by hand takes a whole chapter. The task of constructing 1200 reverberating furnaces takes but a couple sentences. No matter! -The cannon is being cast! I bring you Chapter 14! :D https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/fromtheearthtoth...

Re: SOLO - From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne - icequeen

The stumble is still there in chapter 8. That just means the cybersquirrels got into it, too! My copy is good. So, #8 and #9 are re-uploaded. And, Chapters 12 & 13 are added! :D :D https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/fromtheearthtothemoon_12_verne_128kb.mp3 https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/f...

Re: SOLO - From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne - icequeen

OK, I got in. It appears I was trying to use the Uploader login, which doesn't take me to the Window but elsewhere. Hopefully, I'm straightened out now! So, to recap: #8 is edited, re-uploaded and timing adjusted on MW, #9 is ready for PL. Now, I add Chapters 10 & 11 - wherein, we learn that politic...
