The "Subject" field of this topic got truncated. Can/should anything be done about that?

Somehow I never got round to reading any of the "Dream Cycle" stories. I'd be happy to PL this.

Hi,

I'll MC this for you - be right back with the magic window :)

Edit: MW is up and password sent via PM... I have added 10 sections for now - if you need more or less you can add/delete them as you please.

I think the filename might be a bit long... how about shortening it to dreamquestkadath_##_lovecraft.mp3 ? Just a suggestion. If you want to keep it long, that's ok, too.

If you have any questions, I am happy to help. :)

I'll keep us here until tomorrow (for information purposes) and then move to Readers Found.

Thank you, Julia. I've changed the file name per your suggestion. I agree the generated one was a bit long. I don't seem to have edit access to the synopsis in the MW; if possible (and not too much trouble), could you please change the "24" there to "25"? I miscounted the number of stories in the Dream Cycle yesterday. I've already updated the initial post here.

The story is one continuous narrative. I've divided it into ten sections of about 4300 words each. That should keep each section to just under an hour of recording time.

Cheers,
Martin

I replaced "H.P. Love" by HPL. Lovecraft has enough fans here who understand that ;) Whereas "Love" without a point does look like a different author at first view.

Superb reading :) I'm envious ;) By the way, I noticed that at times you sound like you are out of breath by the end of those enlessly-winding sentences. Is it just me, or did you really have this sort of problems (which would be completely understandable!)?

I have this problem a lot with Lovecraft. Usually I'm more careful about backing up and re-recording those bits, but this time I was more lazy than usual. Obviously the result isn't as inconspicuous as I hoped :? , so if you don't mind, I'd like to fix the places where you noticed this. Please let me have the time positions and the words on which I run out of air.

Hi. Sorry for leaving you like that. I thought there were still some sections left. Congratulations on completing that project. It can't have been easy ;)

Anyway, chapter 5 is PL OK. I'll get round to PL the remaining ones later today (Polish time).
Chapter 6 is PL OK too.
