Biddy and the Silver Man, by Harlan Ellison (1934 - 2018)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/biddy-and-the-silver-man-by-harlan-ellison/

Volunteers outside the USA: Harlan Ellison died in 2018. 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.
A man came out of the sky and they took him and hanged him from the nearest tree thinking that they lynched a devil. But perhaps they crucified a saint instead—there in the beauty of the desert. And what place could be more worthy of being called a second Calvary? (Summary by Fantastic, February 1957)

Target completion date:

Prooflistening level: Standard
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!

Thanks! Section 1 to 5 is up so perhaps that's enough bait to reel in a big fish. :D

I see you have it all posted. I will go ahead and take the DPL and we will have this knocked out and cataloged swiftly. :)

Ok, Parts 1, 2, 4, and 5 are PL OK.
Part 3: at 0:44, said "was" instead of "went" and at 5:54, added the word "space" in front of "station".
Part 6: at 11:38, repeat of "All his life he had been a proud man".
Part 7: at 7:09, added the word "blind" and at 10:29, said "tall" instead of "tail".
Part 8: at 4:24, added the word "not" and at 4:32, said "country" instead of "county".
Part 9: at 3:13, left out the word "get"; at 3:49, said "sleeping" instead of "sleepy"; at 4:27, left out the word "entire"; and at 6:22, said "sat" instead of "set".

These should all be fixed now!
