Hi, thank you for cataloguing volume 2 and setting up volume 3. The first two stories are almost ready to go. I'll upload them in the next day or two. I'm still fiddling around with ways to make them sound better, so I'm curious to see how these will go over with listeners.

Just a couple of minor issues:

- In the catalogue entry for volume 2, the textsource is given as "Gutenberg Austria" ...s/b Australia?

- in the MW for volume 3, could you please switch the stories around so that "The Temple" is Section 1 and "The Moon Bog" is Section 2? I've already recorded the stories in that order, and this would get me out of having to re-record the intros ;)

Cheers,
Martin

@Rapunzelina
I added you.

I thought about reading "The Descendant" but it turned out that the story is unfinished. Which is a pity, because the surviving fragment has many makings of an interesting story.

By the way has any of you noticed how Lovecraft always makes a point of how rare a book "The Necronomicon" is (kept only in 4 or 5 museums around the world under lock and key, or something like that) and yet somehow a great number of his protagonists have at least read a fragment of it :D

Same with "The Book" :roll: (EDIT: I edited Rapunzelina's list to make people aware that some stories are unfinished).

I'll read "The Evil Clergyman".

I noticed that. It is on some sort of red list, not available to order at regular shops. Quite difficult to get at Lovecraft's era, I guess. but nowaday not much of a problem anymore. Thanks to the internet.
I actually read it about 15 years ago.
Not half as interesting as Lovecraft is measuring it, :twisted:
