Yes, and there is a separate 1925 edition. It differs in some ways and really deserves to be done. I did the '24 edition and think that a new voice would be most welcome.

I want to record The Great Gatsby as a solo in 2021, as it is one of my favorite books. Does anyone know if I should wait until it is published on Project Gutenberg, or is there another way to find the text, come January?

There is always Hathitrust.org and archive.org of course.

However, just as with gutenberg, it may take a few days for the books to be cleared as public domain and being ready for view/download. People do deserve their holidays! ;-)
Cheers, Ava.

Do I understand that 1925 is now fair game?
