Pick what you like most. Don't worry about running out any time soon. My queue of researched but not approved yet items is over 130 deep at the moment.

Cool. You've done a lot of the H. Beam Piper. Are you an Andre Norton fan also? :) Storm over Warlock just posted to PG also.

Just posted Plague Ship over in Going Solo. Will start recording as soon as I get back from vacation on the 19th.

Also looking at Voodoo Planet some time in the near future. Cripes, there's so much available all of a sudden it's a little overwhelming. I am open to any suggestions and recommendations.
I enjoyed Voodoo Planet when I read it...would love to listeen to it now I can't read printed books any more (and synthesized speech is soooooooo monotonous [read sleep-inducing] :( ). Anybody know if any of the other Solar Queen prequels/sequels (Sargassor of Space, Postmarked the Stars, etc.) are PD yet? I haven't gotten a chance to go over to the PG DP site to see what's going on.

Nope, they're not. Sargasso renewed, Postmarked and the rest were published too late to need renewals.

The only outstanding Nortons, are The two rebel books and The defiant agents at DP. People of the Crater, All Cats Are Gray, Murders For Sale, Mousetrap, By a Hair where I've not been able to find a copy of the first printing to verify. There might be more that I've missed.

Madness Update:

Just posted Oomphel in the Sky in Solo's. All the recording is already done and up on my server, ready for the Magic Window. Only needs to be proofed-listened and catalogued.

Omnilingual is finished recording, I'm still editing.

12 of 18 chapters of Plague Ship are recorded. I'll probably do all the editing on Thursday. Chapyer 1 edited in the Window du Majique.

For sure will do one more novel before the madness ends, most likely Voodoo Planet.

Next up: Voodoo Planet.

On deck: Tom Swift and the Visitor from Planet X.

When I was about 10, I got an entire New Adventures of Tom Swift set for like $3 at a yard sale. Read them all. The only one I remember was Tom Swift and His Ultrasonic Cycloplane (still available at Amazon), but since that isn't on PG as yet, this one will have to do. The Tom Swift books were one of Robert Heinlein's inspirations and my earliest exposure to sci-fi.

Followed by: Storm Over Warlock.

So much good stuff - so little time. LV needs some more sci-fi readers just to keep up.

Galaxy Primes high on my "do list".

I wouldn't mind listening to Spacehounds of IPC, as well. I enjoyed both of them.

Thanks for continuing to post PD sci-fi titles. I might very well choose one for my next solo!

I just got a clearance approval for the short story "The Vortex Blaster" by Doc Smith. This formed about the first 25 pages of the novel.

Islands of Space, by John W Campbell just posted to PG as well.
