In the midst of the war—that terrible conflict that threatened humanity's total destruction—the "new people" suddenly appeared. Quietly performing incredible deeds, vanishing at will, they were an enigma to both sides. Kurt Zen was an American intelligence officer among the many sent to root them out. He found them.

If only he could find the source of the new people's power, Kurt alone might be able to prevent obliteration of the Earth....

  • 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!

MW coming up.

Edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. Should we add a ~ before the title in the subject line?

This is what I get for posting two projects at once. Brain can’t handle that much complexity.

Sorry to be behind at the beginning, but my wife is unexpectedly in the hospital, so I have extra duties, and I'm pretty exhausted. I'll get these as soon as I can. Nodding off even as I write . . .

Sorry to hear that. Hopes she’s ok. Don’t worry about the book; it’ll keep.

Well, I wanted to get a start on this, so the first three chapters are PL OK. Who are these "new people" anyway?

Crazy week, but wife is back home and is going to be just fine with a bit of recovery.
