Short Science Fiction Collection 075 by Various ( - ).

Science fiction is a genre encompassing imaginative works that take place in this world or that of the author’s creation where anything is possible. The only rules are those set forth by the author. The speculative nature of the genre inspires thought and plants seeds that have led to advances in science. The genre can spark an interest in the sciences and is cited as the impetus for the career choice of many scientists. It is a playing field to explore social perspectives, predictions of the future, and engage in adventures unbound into the richness of the human mind. ( A. Gramour)
  • This collection is for science fiction stories of less than 70 minutes in duration that are in the Public Domain(with expired copyright, or published before 1925).

Hi Amy,

I'm interested in reading A.D. 2000 by LIEUT. Alvarado M. Fuller if it still hasn't been read. Please let me know if there is anything specific about the work I should know or if there is a specific way you would like it done. (other than the perimeters you've already set with the recording programs and upload manners.

Hi Abraham,
This collection is for short stories. A.D. 2000 is a whole book. You could read it as a Solo project, or put it in Book Suggestions to see if anyone would like to coordinate it as a group project.
Cheers,
-Amy

Hi Dale,
Thank you for your story! I am going to use this link for the source. https://archive.org/details/AmazingStoriesVolume01Number09/mode/2up
Some may not want to use a pdf or that link could cease to exist at some point.
-Amy

p.s.
In researching the author to add him to the catalog database, I found a nice poem by him.

Hello,

I'm getting a "file not found" error on story #2 (Dale's) on both the MW link and the link in Dale's post. Could you check this for correctness or re-upload and repost link?

Thanks!
