3 SF stories by William Tenn (1920 - 2010).

This project can now be found at https://librivox.org/3-science-fiction-stories-by-william-tenn/
These are three imaginative SF stories by an author I admire a lot, William Tenn. Venus is a Man's World, (Galaxy Science Fiction, July 1951), Project Hush (Galaxy Science Fiction, 1954_ and Of All Possible Worlds. (Galaxy, Sept 1956) ( phil chenevert)
  • Text source (only read from this text!):Venus is a Man's World http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/51150
    Project Hush http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/32654
    Of All Possible Worlds http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50948
  • 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!

Hi Phil- you need links to the second and third story - you can do it by adding "additional links" on the project page.
