OK, looks like this project will be moving to the One Act Collection. Hope it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb (think of this as a collection of five dramatic monologues and we should be all right).

* Title: "The Day of Boomer Dukes"
* Author: Frederik Pohl
* PD text link: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/22559
* Link to author on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederik_Pohl
* Number of roles (including narrator) this project will have: 6
* Original publication date: 1956

A list of characters and a word count (written by Planish):

I. Foraminifera 9 (philchenevert)
(Full name is "Foraminifera 9-Hart Bailey's Beam")
Bored time traveller from the future, seeking adventure in a 20th century urban setting.
2,383 words

II. Shield 8805
NYPD Rookie patrolman, yet seems to be quite experienced. A bit like a hardboiled detective. He investigates some strange "going-ons".
1,663 words

III. Cow
Leader of a street gang, the Boomer Dukes. Discovers Forminifera 9 and his cool stuff. Wishes to use it against sworn enemies, the Leopards. Note: this character swears... a lot.
999 words

IV. Sandy Van Pelt (ChuckW)
Ambitious reporter. He's eager to prove "what a hot newspaperman he really is".
1,829 words

V. Priam's Maw (JoFriday21)
(full name is "Besplex Priam's Maw")
No-nonsense agent from the future, an "Adjuster". Employed as short-order cook in a diner for a cover. Has to clean up anachronism mess created by Forminifera 9. This part reads like a "just-the-facts ma'am" field report.
1,159 words

VI. Narrator
Reads Librivox disclaimers, the cast list, and the name of each section. Easiest job in the world.
Unable to record due to COVID-19. Please do NOT cancel my projects.

Well, we have a small problem here, as it seems the author is still alive and kicking...

If it's PD in the US (which it is, if Gutenberg has cleared it), it's fine for LibriVox and for US readers.

Yes, Frederik Pohl is still alive... at a spry 92 years old!

Thanks for clearing up the copyright issue, Arielle.

Ahh, okay, I though it was PD50 in USA. I feel like I hate Americans just a tiny, teeny bit right now... :(
