Between 2006 and 2010 a thread called "More Recent Science Fiction" ran in this Book Suggestions forum, eventually adding up to 11 pages. Lots of SF books mentioned, some as PG releases and some found elsewhere, many as they first were posted to Project Gutenberg. Quite a few have since been recorded. I thought it might be helpful to go back through that thread and pull out the suggested or mentioned books that have not yet been recorded, so they would be all together in one place for convenient reference if anyone is looking for an overlooked science fiction work to record.

Props to the amazing GreggMargarite / gweeks for all the work done in the original thread, and for the many recordings of classic SF he left to us.

So, of the books and stories mentioned in that thread, the following have not yet been recorded for Librivox:

Highways in Hiding by George O. Smith

The White Invaders by Ray Cummings

Lots of treasure to dig for here! Also, everyone is welcome to make another recording of any book or short story, and many MANY of the short stories mentioned in the original thread have been recorded just once in the Short SF collections, most between 2006-2009 so it's been at least 10 years -- more than time for another rendition to be welcome!

I'm going to record Creatures of Vibration by Harl Vincent if you want to make a note.

I found three more by Harl Vincent on Gutenberg to put in a collection along with Creatures of Vibration.
