Hi Dale,
Birds of a Feather is PL OK. :thumbs: Nice reading! The illustrator really paid attention to the details of the story. Extraterrestrial vegans are very different-ha ha.
I enjoyed it.
Thanks!
Amy :D

Hey, I'm having trouble listening to the previous recordings. It says that the file has moved. I would furthermore like to make my own submission. The Answer by H. Beam Piper

Hi AJ,
The Answer is fine for this collection.
I'm not sure what you mean by the previous recordings, but we discourage downloading recordings until they are in the catalog. There are 58 previous collections in the catalog with plenty of stories you can listen to.

Hi Amy:

I started THE MISPLACED BATTLESHIP By HARRY HARRISON, but it is coming out a little long (about 82 minutes, if my guess is correct). It's a great story. Can I divide it into two parts for this collection? The story is episodic, so there wouldn't be any problem. If so, how do I label it (part one and Part 2 comes to mind.)

Thanks
Dale

Pt. 2 39:20

It is not quite as long as I thought before I started editing, but it is still slightly long, and it was already in two pieces. (I thnk I could take a minute out of the original by shortening the breath spaces. I could try, if you think it would be better.)

Anyway, enjoy. Slippery Jim is one of my favorite characters.

Thanks
Dale

Hi Amy:
After worrying about this all night, I made some judicious and am submitting it all as one file:

THE MISPLACED BATTLESHIP
By HARRY HARRISON
Read by Dale Grothmann
Text at
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22541/22541-h/22541-h.htm

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/ss059_misplacedbattleship_harrison_dg_128kb.mp3

Time - 71:15 (71:25 with the 10 seconds of silence at the end.)

Now it is your choice which way it ends up in the collection.

Anyway, enjoy. Slippery Jim is one of my favorite characters.

Thanks
Dale

Hi Dale,
It should be this:
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/22541
It is the page with the choices of formats that can be downloaded. This is what will be linked as the etext for your section. I searched PG for it to get this page with the format choices. It would just help me out if it was submitted in that way so I don't have to go find it.
Cheers,
Amy

Hi Dale,
It is not a problem. It is just the way it is preferred.
The Misplaced Battleship is PL OK. :thumbs:
Thank you for it!
