Gregg Margarite is an up and coming narrator over on LibriVox.org. He recorded stories for five of the LibriVox “Short Science Fiction” collections as well as soloing on the Collected Public Domain Works Of Stanley G. Weinbaum! But it is his latest project that I suspect will be his most popular narration. Here’s how he describes it:
“Deathworld is the first in a series of novels begun in 1960 and originally serialized in Astounding Science Fiction Magazine. It’s the story of Jason dinAlt a professional gambler with psionic skills who finds himself on Pyrrus the deadliest planet to be colonized by humanity. Violent weather, active tectonics, heavy gravity, abundant predators, and a hostile splinter group of colonists is only the beginning of Jason’s quest to learn the truth about Pyrrus.”

Some planet in the galaxy must—by definition—be the toughest, meanest, nastiest of all. If Pyrrus wasn’t it … it was an awfully good approximation! First published in Astounding Science Fiction magazine’s January, February and March 1960 issues.
