On Saturday December 26, 2009 LibriVox cataloged its 3000th title, The Red Planet, by William John Locke:

Set during WWI in England, The Red Planet is a rich tale about the life in a little English town from the point of view of Major Duncan Meredyth, a disabled veteran of the Boer Wars. As he struggles to keep his life and the lives of those he cares for in harmony, he must also shelter a dark secret regarding one of the village’s favorite sons.
