A Matter of Importance by Murray Leinster (1896 - 1975).

The DPL for this project is Linny.

The importance of a matter is almost entirely a matter of your attitude. And whether you call something "a riot" or "a war" ... well, there is a difference, but what is it? The twisted mind of Murray Leinster takes on a Earth that has moved beyond armies. No need for 'em any more when you have an experienced police force, eh? ( Phil Chenevert)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/23636
  • 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!

Wow, how did you know about this? But thanks!
I am recording an other OZ book at the moment but will start on this one very soon. It is a most interesting story and a perspective I've never seen used before.
