Hello Amy,
I am thinking of recording "The Transformation" by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley:
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/56665/56665-h/56665-h.htm#ch09
Do you think this is appropriate for the SciFi collection, or should I do it for the Ghost & Horror collection?
Thank you...Louise

Hi Louise,
I think it would fit better in Ghost and Horror.
Cheers!

Deepfreeze

Hi Chad,
Deepfreeze is PL OK. :thumbs:
Great story.
Thanks!
Amy

edit: the filename should include ssf066. I can change this one. Please use the filename format in the opening post for future stories.

Hello Amy,

I have been looking for a Science Fiction story to do for a while now, and found this
from the 'less than 60 minutes' link.

http://www.gutenberg.org/files/29542/29542-h/29542-h.htm

My question is - do I include the 'Fantastic Universe' introductory blurb?
I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I believe I should invest it wisely...

Hi Amy:

Okay, just one more.

Pleasant Journey

(I don't mean to cast aspersions, but this sounds a lot like the chair from "I can dream it for you wholesale" by Phil Dick. Only written 40 years earlier)

Thanks
Dale

Yes, please include it.
