Star Ship by Poul William Anderson (1926 - 2001).


This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/star-ship-by-poul-william-anderson/

The strangest space-castaways of all! The Terrans left their great interstellar ship unmanned in a tight orbit around Khazak—descended, all of
them, in a lifeboat to investigate that weird, Iron Age world—and the lifeboat cracked up! This story is Poul Anderson at his best, Ride along through the galaxy and see what adventure awaits. ( Paul Harvey)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/63950
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

That sounds great. Thank you Ann.

I have the MW complete so everything is ready to launch (pardon the pun (and if not a full pardon, then at least a commutation of sentence)).

Too much political coverage, and it goes to your head. :shock:

Thank you to both of you again. You make this not only an easy process, but a VERY FUN ONE as well. :9:
