After World's End, by Jack Williamson (1908 - 2006)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/after-worlds-end-by-jack-williamson/

Volunteers outside the USA: Jack Williamson died in 2006. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 70 years for authors who died after 1971; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Could the Earthmen ever win against Malgarth, the Robot monster? Was their only hope Barry Horn, who had waked from the age-long amnesic sleep of the cosmic rays, and Dona Keradin, the wonder-girl in the carbon crystal? (Summary by Original text)

Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded 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!

I have another project in the queue ahead of this one, so it'll be about 3 weeks before I start uploading chapters.

And we're off!

I called file 00 'Prologue' because it seems I had to call it something. Just 'Part One' didn't work, since at the end I couldn't say End of Part One, because it isn't.

Anyway, 00 and 01 ready for PL.

5 & 6 ready for PL.

Apparently there was a law passed that requires all sci-fi names to be three syllables: Kel Aran, Zerek Oom, Jeron Roc, Gugon Kul, Rogo Nug. And today, Kylo Ren, Boba Fett, Din Djarin. Some things are timeless.
