Short Science Fiction Collection 060 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 project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/short-science-fiction-collection-060-by-various/
  • This collection is for science fiction recordings of less than 70 minutes in duration

    Collection Requirements:

    • Text must be in the Public Domain (with expired copyright, or published before 1923)
    • Each recording must contain a complete story
    • Claiming stories is unnecessary (duplicates are held for future collections)
    • There is no deadline (when finished, post to the currently open collection)
    For help with LibriVox requirements and policies see the Recording Notes topic

    Finding Texts:

    Stories found on the Project Gutenberg US site are cleared for recording
    Gutenberg’s Science Fiction Bookshelf is a good starting point.
    Gutenberg’s science fiction content is not always cataloged as such (search by other criteria)
    Gutenberg plain text, us-ascii, uncompressed files of less than 78 KB or 10,000 story words can generally be read in less than 70 minutes
    Project Gutenberg continues to add science fiction magazines such as The Galaxy and Astounding Stories. There you can view the fantastic covers and illustrations that accompany the stories. A compilation of PD stories from Galaxy magazine can be found here: Galaxy PD
    The Librivox Main Page also contains pages listing Gutenberg stories appropriate to this collection:
    The Science Fiction Short Stories Science Fiction Short Stories page shows stories that can be read in less than 60 minutes.
    The Science Fiction by Women bookshelf in Gutenberg can be found here: SF by Women
    The Science Fiction Shortish Stories page shows longer stories that may be read in less than 60 minutes depending on your reading speed.
    The LibriVox Short Science Fiction Index displays stories already in the LibriVox catalog (Note: duplicates welcome)
    A Librivox discussion and suggestion thread on science fiction in the public domain and the new arrivals in PG can be found here: List of Early Science Fiction
    Stories from sources other than Gutenberg require evidence of public domain status. For more information see the Copyright and Public Domain page of the LibriVox wiki .

    • Recording must be a monaural MP3 file with a sample rate of 44.1 kHz and a bit rate of 128 Kbps.
    • File name must be formatted entirely in lower case letters and use under-bars to separate values as in: ssf060_titleinoneword_authorlastname_readersinitials_128kb.mp3 (e.g. ssf060_nightfall_asimov_abc_128kb.mp3) Exclude definite articles like “The” from the file name.
    • Recording must contain LibriVox announcements at beginning.

    Beginning Announcement:
    “[story title] by [author]. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    You can then optionally say: "Recording by [your name]".
    Then repeat: "[Title], by [author]. Translated by [translator]."

    Ending Announcement:
    "End of [title], by [author] Translated by [translator]."
    You can then optionally say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Recordings of less than 30 minutes require 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file
    • Recordings of more than 30 minutes require 10 seconds of silence at the end of the file
    • All files must have ID3 V2 tags that populate the following 3 fields:

Happy 4th, Dale! :birthday:
The team at Gutenberg is amazing. They have been producing so much new science fiction. Abernathy is a new author to the catalog. Many of the others lately have been, too.
Great stuff. I will PL soon.
Thank you!

Hi Dale,
Big Bounce is PL OK.
Junior just needs to have its ending silence reduced to 5 seconds. Since a change is needed, please amplify it by 2 db.
Great readings!
Thanks!

Hi Amy:

I am using a different compression algorythm, and I am not sure of the settings yet. I think this will be what you want. If not, leave me a post, and I can change it. (it is easy.)

Hi Dale,
This appears to be the same one you submitted for the previous collection. It is the same file. We can't use the same recording in two collections. Did you forget that you had already submitted it?
:hmm:

Dale's probably been watching too much Wimbledon, Amy. Be kind. ;)

Sorry. My record keeping isn't what it should be. But I have another.

Question: Can I make another recording of the same story and resubmit it later??

Seems to me I've done this myself in different projects over the years. Accent on 'years'. If the writer (Wells, Poe, et al) is someone who can be included in a regular short-story collection, that's been done also.

Hi, Amy,
Here is the story I owe you (without comment):

This was published in 1953, and can not be confused with anyone now or in the future...
