Preferred Risk by F Pohl and L del Rey.

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/preferred-risk-by-frederik-pohl/

Volunteers outside the USA: Lester del Rey died in 1993. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.

Quote:
In a world where the Company controls just about everything, being an employee of the Company rising up the corporate ladder is a a good place to be. And that's where Claims Adjuster Wills was when he saw the man jump under the train and sever his legs (for the fifth time, it turns out!). After that, his life changed completely, and the now-legless man played a big part in those changes. Together with the mysterious daughter of anti-Company activist, they become involved in a race to determine the future of the world. The problem is, Wills cannot decide what side he's on.

This collaborative work was originally published under the pseudonym Edson McCann. It was the winner of the 1955 Galaxy-Simon & Schuster novel contest. ( Nick Bulka)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/51814
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    ============================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Preferred Risk. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Preferred Risk, by Edson McCann. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Preferred Risk by Edson McCann. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Preferred Risk, by Edson McCann. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename preferredrisk_##_mccann_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. preferredrisk_01_mccann_128kb.mp3)

Ok MW done
I'd suggested that the files names and the intro both have the published author rather than Pohl and del Ray. As it is now it's incorrect , but putting both names is clumsy , so just use McCann I think
