Re: [HORROR]The Dark Other, Stanley Weinbaum-icequeen

That was INTENSE. My heart is literally racing and my eyes are so wide open if anyone saw me right now they'd think I'd just been witness to all of it in real life.

:shock: Chapters 7-10 are PLOKD

Re: [HORROR]The Dark Other, Stanley Weinbaum-icequeen

I'll have chapters 7-10 PL'd by midnight.

Edit: Did I say by midnight? What was I thinking? I meant I'm going to start listening at midnight. I can't believe I nearly ended up on the other side of the veil with nothing to listen to. :lol:

As for becom[ing]one of [the] frustrated, seldom-employed actor[s], poor and unknown, living under a bridge. :P One always can instead choose to live in a van down by the river. One always has choices. So grab that mirror and repeat that to yourself until you think that you believe it. As far as tha...

Re: [HORROR]The Dark Other, Stanley Weinbaum-icequeen

I see no reason not to welcome you in/onto this production of what is indeed an awesome book. Weinbaum's shorter works of Sci-Fi are utterly hysterical; whereas, in this work he reveals an insight and understanding of a genre too often lacking in the depth that Weinbaum brings to it. It may be a dep...

Re: [HORROR]The Dark Other, Stanley Weinbaum-icequeen

Chapters 5 & 6 are hereby approved.

I love chapter 6; the references to mythoi spanning continents and eras, the dual meanings of terms used such as "modern" (as in both "woman" and "thought"), and the ease with which Weinbaum weaves together all (inter)related metaphora is, simply stated, fun!

Re: “The Genetic Effects of Radiation” - Isaac Asimov

Well, you know quite a bit actually. :D Note that in our catalog we always give the link to the work being read so any listeners could easily check that out. I am thinking of using your zip file in the description since we can't add an appendix or anything. Thanks for your feedback; this is simmeri...

Re: “The Genetic Effects of Radiation” - Isaac Asimov

I like the example https://ia601406.us.archive.org/31/items/thepsychologyofreligion_1412_librivox/psychologyofreligion_diagrams_1411.pdf. It's an excellent idea for the referenced work as well as Isamov's work. Telling a listener to go look at images in a book, regardless of its availablity on archi...

Re: “The Genetic Effects of Radiation” - Isaac Asimov

While most people may not listen with access to the image files, I still feel it would be of service to those who do, to provide them in a convenient .zip file, with, as you say “[the nice] diagrams” pointed to in a summary, which, as I understand it, does not exist in the original work. Would this ...

Re: “The Genetic Effects of Radiation” - Isaac Asimov

Here's a solution: Attach the included images, provided by Gutenberg here: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/55738/55738-h/images/ , as a .zip file. Then, while narrating, use the descriptions of each image provided in the .txt version here: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/55738/55738-0.txt to direct ...

Re: “The Genetic Effects of Radiation” - Isaac Asimov

I agree; it was also a major concern of mine. I've listened to other Librivox works that handled this difficulty by informing the listener that all such included illustrations may be seen at the source, in this case Gutenberg. Another way of handling it would be to directly download the illustration...

Re: [HORROR]The Dark Other, Stanley Weinbaum-icequeen

How can anyone resist chapter 29? "Scopolomine for Satan". The plant from which the alkaloid derives is generically, at times, refered to as "angel('s) trumpet". The alkaloid itself is refered to as both "burundanga" and "devil's breath". Weinbaum rocks!
