The 2 section length limit has been scrapped. You can now pick longer stories to record- just don't overdo it: these are supposed to be short stories after all ;) I requested 10 sections for the MW this time, but I'll be happy to add additional ones if necessary.
The first 3 sections have been claimed by Martin for his reading of "The Call of Cthulhu".
I also added "The Colour out of Space" and "The Haunter of the Dark", which I soloed previously, to the list of available works in case someone wants to record them.

I marked the stories already read in the list visible in the 1st post. Since we already have the MW, I also put Martin's claims in. I'll read "The Shunned House", but I have to figure out how to divide it.

You're in the MW, Julia :)

EDIT: Seeing as the length limit has been scrapped I added some of the longer stories to the list of possible options.

I am not a huge fan of Lovecraft's stories (not my genre), but he has a way with words... I like his way of setting a scene... it really paints a picture in my mind... Image

I've put it into the MW already :)

Hmmm, I think the filename would be better as shortstories4_##_lovecraft.mp3
We had shortstories2_##_lovecraft.mp3 and shortstories3_##_lovecraft.mp3 before that.
What do you think?


Regardless, section 4 is PL OK :D

Also I got this suggestion from Erik (kadath9969 at Librivox) for the Lovecraft collection:

The Challenge from Beyond (1935) by C.L. Moore, A. Merritt, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Frank Belknap Long
http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks13/1304101h.html

It appears to be around 6000 words.

I've read about this experiment, although I've never read the work itself. What makes me suspicious is that it's a group work and I have no idea what the rules are for such cases. What was the response of the Librivox folks?

It's not PD for Librivox, and I was about to say it's PD here, but, checking the rest of the authors' death dates now, I'm afraid it's not PD for us here either :(

You are right, Rapunzelina.
That's the downside of auto generated code for the first post. I changed it there, too.

We move to Readers Wanted.

And Chapter 1 of the Call of Cthulu is PL OK! :D

Is it possible to rename already uploaded files? Section 4 needs renaming (or the MW updated), otherwise PL OK ;)

Thank you 8-) Could you please mark it as PL OK in the MW?

Also, the three parts of this story are actually designated as Chapters 1, 2, and 3 by HPL, so I think it would be better to change the section titles in the MW to "The Call of Cthulhu Chap. 1" or some such. I think this is one for Piotr to decide.

I don't think it matters much as long as you remember to read "chapter 1", "chapter 2" etc. at the beginning of each chapter.

I just thought about my long solo with tons of chapters and subchapters in it and tried to remember how I tackled things there. I'll change the names in the MW.

EDIT: MW updated.

Oh hi Piotr! I realized I started proof-listening without officially asking to be DPL :mrgreen:
So, will you accept me as the DPL? :D
