New LibriVox Recording: "Double Take" by Richard Wilson

My second LibriVox recording is finished! The basic idea behind LibriVox is to read public domain texts and to put the recordings back into the public domain. More about that on

As with the last recording, my personal motivation is to practice my rusty English pronunciation. By reading and rereading the texts I believe my English will become more fluent and in the end also achieve better articulation.

The second recording is "Double Take" by Richard Wilson, a science fiction short story available from Project Gutenberg. I have also made a quick LaTeX typesetted version of the Gutenberg etext for more comfortable reading and with slight corrections: doubletake_wilson_text.pdf (369 KB).

Story Summary / Teaser

Pacing through a high-speed spy adventure, young Paul Asher finds himself going around in circles -- very peculiar circles indeed!

Audio Recording - Runtime: 26:29

MP3 encoded with standard lame VBR preset (obviously better/smaller than CBR 128 kbps)

doubletake_wilson_tb_vbr.mp3 (19.1 MB)

The recording is now also available on in the LibriVox Short Science Fiction Collection 033.
