Wandl the Invader by Ray Cummings (1887 - 1957).


This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/wandl-the-invader-version-2-by-ray-cummings/


Volunteers outside the USA Ray Cummings died in 1957. His/Her work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954.

This is an abandoned solo, brought back to life as a group project!
There were nine major planets in the Solar System and it was within their boundaries that man first set up interplanetary commerce and began trading with the ancient Martian civilization. And then they discovered a tenth planet—a maverick!

This tenth world, if it had an orbit, had a strange one, for it was heading inwards from interstellar space, heading close to the Earth-Mars spaceways, upsetting astronautic calculations and raising turmoil on the two inhabited worlds.

But even so none suspected then just how much trouble this new world would make. For it was WANDL THE INVADER and it was no barren planetoid. It was a manned world, manned by minds and monsters and traveling into our system with a purpose beyond that of astronomical accident! (Original book jacket blurb. Sequel to Brigands of the Moon.)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/20859
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

OK, here is the first of two abandoned solo projects that I would like to get cleared out of my folder. There are only 8 chapters left, and almost all are relatively short. I would love to get this one done and gone sooner rather than later. And, it is a sci-fi, and Ray Cummings as well! This is doable! We are open for business, hurry while supplies last!

Hello,

Welcome to LibriVox! I have you done for the chapters 16-20, thank you! But, please make sure you do your one minute test before you start recording. This is just our way to make sure that your settings are where we need them to be. Once you get your OK, then you can start recording away! What name would you like credited on your catalog page?
