At last, chapter 14:
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/treacheryouterspace_14_rockwell_128kb.mp3
15:56

No space cadets appear in this chapter - Tom and Astro are still immobilized and underground, while Roger is at "the hideout" - apparently against his will. Tom and Astro will get thawed out in chapter 15, but we won't hear from Roger for a while longer.
Sorry to be a little late with this. Dealing with some recent power outages and some overtime at work.

But this is methane OK.

Power failures are a great excuse. I'll buy that.

No more overtime for me - at long last I'm retired!

Chapter 15 is here -
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/treacheryouterspace_15_rockwell_128kb.mp3
length: 13:20

I think I went overboard a bit with the swoosh of pink noise I slid into scene changes - marked in the book by width-of-the-page horizontal lines. I went back just now and lowered the swooshs by 3 dB - see if you think it's OK.

Progress report: I have my recording for Chapter 17. However, my place is starting to record videos to keep us all busy once the snow flies - my computer is rendering an 'exercise along with' video and will likely be grinding away until morning. I should be able to get back to editing my next chapter at that point.

Thanks for keeping us informed - real life interferes for many of us at present.

Three chapters left. The lads need to get busy or they'll run out of story before the rats are rounded up.

Here is chapter 18:
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/treacheryouterspace_18_rockwell_128kb.mp3
length is 16:59

I believe I found another typo in the Gutenberg text - it reads:
"I think we can make visual contact on radar in above five minutes."
(This is at about 6:10 in my recording.) I read it as "in about five minutes" and reported the suspected typo back to Gutenberg.

I also learned an old word: spluttered. It's in the dictionary, so there you go.

And we are nearing the end of the story, so I'm now going for an over the top reading.

Yep, PG does have mistakes. Got one now I need to send notice for.


Spluttered - I think I learned that one from some of my old comic books. :lol:

This one is PL OK, so take is over the top -- or down the tubes, however this thing ends.
But the identical twin gag??

I heard back from a volunteer at PG this morning. He pointed me to a scan of the story -
https://www.pgdp.org/ols/tools/display.php?page=194.png&id=projectID43f288e13e80e
- it turns out "on radar in above five minutes" is a faithful scan of what was printed. "Above five minutes" could mean 6 or 7 minutes or perhaps 2 hours.

So the OCR error was between my eyes and brain - I autocorrected "above" to "about" when I was reading and didn't even notice until I was editing the chapter. I don't want to go back and fix it at this point. (insert an emoji of someone with fuzzy glasses here)

I stepped back through the scan to the previous chapter and the error I reported there was an PG mistake.

The lads only have one chapter after this one to fix everything. Do you think they will succeed?
