David Levinson Jr. was born April 19, 1930 in Chicago IL . He graduated from Kenyon College in Ohio and the Northwestern University School of Law. He was an attorney specializing in worker’s compensation law and later, a worker’s compensation arbitrator. Lowell B. Komie described him as a “feisty, argumentative lawyer,” a man who “loved luxury and surprises [and also] loved to travel,” and a man “who was a science fiction writer” who was published under the name Louis Newman in Galaxy Magazine. Levinson was a member of Hugo’s Companions, serving as Most Wicked Companion and Moriarty’s Advocate, and in 1962 received the investiture of Count Von und Zu Grafenstein from The Baker Street Irregulars. Levinson died March 20, 1981 in Cook County, IL. He is interred at Memorial Park Cemetery in Skokie, IL. John Nieminski’s The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) is dedicated to him.

Thank you for this information, Dale. ISFDB did not have it. His bio is updated for the catalog.

Hi,

I Proof Listened "License to Steal" yesterday :-)

Dale - I thought the narration was very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the story! I only found a few things, see below. Good job!

Re: Checker, file passed "Gentle" setting, but 3 naming issues came up on "Strict" setting.

2:12 "such" sounds (to me) like "sex"

15:13 Loud plosive "P" on "punishable"

15:23 Repeat; "Indeed, Judge Griffin, who was presiding, was over-turr.......Indeed, Judge Griffin, who was presiding, was overheard to remark to a friend...."

16:20 Text states "Saurian", narrator says "Sarturian"

2 seconds (not 5) of quiet from end of narration to end of file.

Dale, thanks for giving me a good chuckle :-)

Best,
Pete
