This book has been read into Librivox in German. Anyone interested in reading it in English?

"Master Zacharius, or the clockmaker who lost his soul" (French: Maître Zacharius ou l'horloger qui avait perdu son âme) is an 1854 short story by Jules Verne. The story, an intensely Romantic fantasy echoing the works of E. T. A. Hoffmann, is a Faustian tragedy about an inventor whose overpowering pride leads to his downfall.
