Venus Has Green Eyes by carl Selwyn ( - 0).

This project can now be found at https://librivox.org/venus-has-green-eyes-by-carl-selwyn/
Flip Miller was a man about the universe, surviving one harrowing escapade after another and seeking for the lucky break that would make his fortune. Finally he had found in in a scrap of a map to a lost mine on Venus. Only he was foolish enough to search it out in the steaming jungle of that mud covered planet. But it was true and unbelievable riches were soon to be his. Well, as soon as he could get a ride out of the mud island where his plane had broken down. The one thing he was never afraid of in all his adventures were women. Were there women on this planet that might just might not fall for his rugged looks and boundless self confidence. Of course not. Captain Vixen, the princess of Venus may just be a type of woman he hasn't met before and one worthy of his mettle. If he loses this battle of the sexes, then of course he will die. Will he teach even this fierce wild woman what if feels like to be a true woman in the arms of a strong man? Listen and find out. (remember, this was written in 1940!) ( philc)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61798
  • 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!

Both Sections PL OK, Phil.

More fiction than science in this one, and such a sexist ending.
But, hey, times change . . . .

I LOVED the fact that he forgets she has another gun and obviously he gets killed. Neat twist on the "Me Man- You Woman" theme.
