The protagonist, Prof. Peaslee collapses one day when delievering a lecture and from that moment on starts acting as if something has possessed him. HIs new behaviour makes his family sever all the ties with him and his colleagues regard him now with fear ans suspicion. After a few years, the mysterious transformation is reversed just as suddenly and mysteriously as it once took place. But, paradoxically, it is only now that the real nightmare begins...

OK, here comes another novella by HPL. This one has a little more than 24 000 words and is divided into 8 chapters. I'll need 8 sections.
It was first published in 1936.

I don't care much. The last 2 projects were short- in terms of the text length, not the time it took me to conclude- and I never even logged on to the MW when doing them (though I guess I should have...). This one is longer, but I can equally well just post links here. But I'm not the only person involved. There's also you and the PL to consider. The question is do you (both) find MW necessary?

I'll ask Rapuzelina if she would like to PL.

Hello, I'm here again!

Maybe solo project threads are easy enough to follow without MW. It's up to the MC :)

Ok, after 3 failed attempts at reading section 7 and some soul-searching I reached a rather difficult decision. This, I mean reading aloud for the purpose of recording, is not getting any easier with time for me :roll: Could I please go in Cat's footsteps and turn it into a group project (thankfully, it's in English... )?

I'll prepare some irresistably "read me, pleeease" summary right away :cool:

And here's the wordcount for the remaining chapters:
Ch. 4: 4318
Ch. 6: 3600
Ch. 7: 2489
Ch. 8: 3624

No problem! I'll prepare the MW.

Chapter 4 is available for someone, or do you want to record it later?

So I was thinking of recording the rest of this project... Piotr, would you like to "change places"? Would you have time to PL if I recorded?
