A Dweller on Two Planets or The Dividing of the Way, by Fredrick Spencer Oliver (1866 - 1899)
A channeled autobiography of a spirit calling himself Phylos the Thibetan. The setting is Atlantis with a first person account of Atlantean culture including its technology and the social, economic, political and religious structures that shaped Poseid society. Daily life for Poseidi citizens included such things as antigravity powered air craft and submarines, television, among many other wonders. The personal history also touches upon deep esoteric subjects including karma and re-incarnation and the ultimate destruction of this "fantastic" world. (Summary by Christine Rottger)

Done.

Do you want me to move this to Readers Wanted, or wait until you get some claims and a DPL first?

Thanks, Todd

Hi Jon! Welcome to Librivox and this project! It's great that you already have your test recording all done. Would you like your screen name to be your catalogue name? Or something different? I will assigned you Section 2 as soon as I hear from you about the catalogue name. Please follow all the instructions on page one of this thread, especially the script for intro and outro. If you have any questions as you go, post them here and I will help find the answers.
Thanks!
Christine

Catalogue name is how you are credited when the book is done. It is also how people can find other things you have recorded or also to thank you. P;ease let me know when you get a chance so I can officially assign you Section 2 in the Magic Window.
Thanks
