Hi cleosteinhauser! Welcome to Librivox!

I'd be happy to give this section over to you. However, before I can do this at an official capacity, I need you to complete two minor tasks:

1) Please head over to the Listener's Wanted section and record your 1-minute test. This is not an audition to record, but rather a way for us to make sure that all of your settings are correct. Once someone has approved your recording, you should be all set to volunteer and record.

2) I'll also need to know what you'd like to use for your catalogue name (your real name, a pseudonym, or just your username...?). Please let me know so I can add you to the catalogue.

For now, I'll just hold this section for you at an unofficial capacity.

Hello, ChuckW,

I was wondering whether you still need any help with PLing. If it is so, I could do Section 28 (Paul's case).

I understand the level requested is Standard.

Regards

Since the standard turnaround time for LV recordings is two months, I think this should be fine. I'm also happy to give you extra time if needed. I'll reach out at around mid-March to check in on your status. For now though, I'll go ahead and give you those two sections. Thanks again for helping us out! You actually picked one of the rarest stories from the collection. :D
Thanks so much for being understanding! I'll try to get it to you as soon as I can, but February is quite a busy month for me. I am excited to read this story and got an idea of how rare it is by the fact that when I googled the story, this LV project was the second result. Any idea why the story is so rare?
I’m not sure, exactly. I presume it’s the victim of low print runs, but so was Stevenson’s The Intersexes and it’s freely available on HathiTrust. I’m honestly surprised I was able to find a PDF scan anywhere!

Looking forward to hearing your version of this story. And no rush—please take your time with this one. We’re not going anywhere.
Here is part 1!

Oooof. Honestly, I would really appreciate it. I've been meaning to do it for a while, but work has been ramping up pretty heavily this week. Thanks for the offer! This should help me catch up on everything.
