Re: ~[GRP/Short stories] The Black Dog and Other Stories by A.E. Coppard - lt

Lynnet... nothing like leaving some last-minute work for you before heading out for vacation, I guess. Swear it just worked out that way (so leave it if you need to till your return!). "The Handsome Lady" secs 10 & 11 are ready for PL. 10 - 34.23 https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/blackdog_10_coppa...

Re: COMPLETE: The Call of the Wild by Jack London-mtf

Hmm. Didn't realize replacement-after-the-fact has so many complications.

So... even though the chapter as it is is still vexing to my ears, I'm willing to let it be. I'll chalk it up as a learning experience to be more careful with my own file management in the future, okay? Jeff

Re: COMPLETE: The Call of the Wild by Jack London-mtf

OOF! I just accidentally discovered a problem in Chapter 5 of my reading, when reviewing the last 3-4 minutes of it. When I created the mp3 of this chapter, I used a semi-edited version of it (temp file name had only one letter different from the fully edited, and I failed to notice this). All the t...

Two sections have been orphaned.
Lynnet,

Hate to see this project languish longer than necessary.

I'd like to claim sections 10 & 11, "The Handsome Lady."

Re: Johnny Gruelle, "Johnny Mouse and the Wishing Stick"

There is a scan from 1922 on Google Books. :-) https://www.google.com/books/edition/Johnny_Mouse_and_the_Wishing_Stick/Kg5EAQAAMAAJ?hl=en&gbpv=0 Ha! Thanks, Maria; don't know how I missed this. The book appears to be entirely there--when you start with the copyright page and keep scrolling. Nice! :...

Re: Johnny Gruelle, "Johnny Mouse and the Wishing Stick"

You COULD try to get Gutenberg copyright clearance for the 1973 facsimile. Their wiki page with a link to the submission form is here: https://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:Copyright_How-To I'd suggest actually transcribing the book and submitting it if you get clearance, or maybe ask for help t...

Re: Johnny Gruelle, "Johnny Mouse and the Wishing Stick"

Well, Anne, I"ll probably have to do that: Get my sister to dig up our father's copy (she lives in another state and has stuff in storage, including this book), then when I can get it all scanned, upload it. But this book--in first edition--may be relatively rare but not exceedingly so. So I wonder ...

Johnny Gruelle, "Johnny Mouse and the Wishing Stick"

I'd love to do a reading of this book by the author of the Raggedy Ann stories--but it's the one just not yet available in Gutenberg, Archive, Hathitrust, or anywhere you can come up with. My sister and I had this read to us as children, from the first edition copy that was our father's when he was ...

Re: COMPLETE: The Call of the Wild by Jack London-mtf

My thanks to you both. :) This was a satisfying first solo effort--and it was a surprise to feel compelled to do it, crossing paths with the book for only the first time so late in my reading life, but having a dog whose relationship with me is much like Buck's and Thornton's so in the end maybe not...

Re: Solo: The Call of the Wild by Jack London-mtf

Thanks. I expect to see the Harrison Ford film version myself, as I've seen the first 10min or so in preview. Not impressed, and not expecting much. The CGI dog is simultaneously cute and creepy, I think. There was a Charlton Heston verison in 1972, I think. Not very good itself, but it remained muc...
