In Science Fiction Collection 55, story "Doctor by Murray Leinster" (read by David Loving) somebody seems to have screwed up on the proof listening, or the file got corrupted at some point. The following section in [ ] near the end is missing. There is a silence there, which starts at the end of a sentence but then breaks in the middle of another sentence.

"There would need to be a health examination of the Star Queen to certify that it was safe for passengers to breathe her air and eat in her restaurants and swim in her swimming pools and occupy the six levels of passenger cabins she contained. [This would have to be done by a Patrol ship, which would turn up at Altaira.

The Star Queen's skipper would be praised by his owners for not having driven the liner into a star, and the purser would be forgiven for the confusion in his records due to off-schedule operations of the big ship, and Jensen would find in the ending of all terror of chlorophage an excellent]

I downloaded the 64kb version and confirmed the silence where there should be vocals.

I'll ping the BC/MC.

I am looking into it.

Update: The file has been updated with the missing passage.
In the mind, or consciousness of the Earth this flower first lay latent as a dream. Perhaps, in her consciousness, it nested as that which in us corresponds to a little thought.--A.Blackwood
