Re: Polish

OK, here's another one. There's this story which MIGHT fall under the Lv scope, athough there are some doubts (see https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&p=685637#p685637 ). On the other hand, it definitely IS PD for the "death+70" countries. Could I record it here, just to be on the safe sid...

Re: Polish

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this rant so if you feel there's a better place for it, feel free to move it. I'm planning to make a solo project on LV reading a selection of short stories by Stefan Grabiński, a pre-war Polish author inspired by E.A.Poe . While his short stories are pre...

Re: CPMPLETE Solo [POLISH] Bolesław Prus- Widziadła - hok

So my book was the 1st one to be catalogued. Wow, I'm proud 8-) On the other hand, there's this thread in which you claim that it was Ruthie that recorded the 1st book. http://legamus.eu/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=254 Wasn't it catalogued? Please have a look if everything looks OK. Well, there's one ...

Re: SOLO [POLISH] Bolesław Prus- Widziadła - hok

But most important is the name Polish speaking listeners will look for. He's universally known under his pen name. I've never seen any edition of any of his works bearing his real name on the cover. Whoever is going to search for him in the catalogue, will most likely search for "Bolesław Prus". Al...

Re: Polish

First published: (it's not relevant for pd status, but we want to have it on the catalog page) Given that it was published posthumously, I assume that IT IS important in that case. I imagine that the "death+" rule becomes "publication+" for such a piece of writing? Thank you very much for those exp...

Re: Polish

OK. Now I just have to read a bit to figure out how to do all the formal stuff, such how to fill the template etc. I've never done any solo on LV... After that I can record the section and thus... end the project. That will probably be the shortest solo ever :lol: (why are these smileys so egg-heade...

Re: Ten books

Apart from Lovecraft, already mentioned in other thread, I found these: - some of the late works by Arthur Conan Doyle, also non-Sherlock Holmes ones: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Conan_Doyle_bibliography - most of Robert. E. Howard's stuff (that's the guy behind Conan :twisted: ) He died in ...

Re: Polish

Thanks for posting my message, Nadine. The story I have in mind is 2 300-word-long. I'm not quite sure how this translates into running time, though. Between 15 and 20 minutes, I guess.

Re: Welcome everybody!

Hi there. Perhaps some of you laready noticed me on LV. My name's Piotr and I would like to help you with the projects, either by recording, PLing or by giving tips on Polish pronounciation if you should decide to record a translation of a Polish work. I'm still a newbie, though, even on LV, so my k...
