Re: French : a letter a two pages long

Sorry for failing to reply sooner. I have some health issues which are cutting into my computer time. 8( I'd like the letter to be read in French: my accent's Australian, and I can't do the European "rolled R" sound, so there's no way for me to do it that doesn't sound incorrect. I'm very happy for ...

French : a letter a two pages long

Hi all, I'm recording the biography of Lord Thomas Cochrane, who was a Royal Navy captain during and just after the Napoleonic period. At one point, the Greek independence movement writes to him, asking him to come fight for Greece, but the letter is in French. Could anyone volunteer to read it plea...

Re: ~SOLO The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane - ans

I still haven't called out for someone to do Ch13's letter in French. Sorry, I forgot. I'll get around to it this weekend.

But for now...we finish up in Brazil.

Re: ~SOLO The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane - ans

Hi, I'm home sick for four days, which is great for this project. I've recorded 11 and 12, but not edited them. It turns out Ch 13 has a couple of pages in French, and my French is so bad...as you will hear in an upcoming chapter! So, if I wanted to ask around for a French speaker to do either the w...

Re: "True Ghost Stories" -- Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Oh, and to answer the OP's questions about collections to a narrator, yes, they are still non-fiction. They either land in ghost stories or folklore (which is 398 with a number after the decimal to narrow down place or subject) because folklore doesn't need, as Tricia noted, to be demonstrably true.

Re: "True Ghost Stories" -- Fiction or Non-Fiction?

I went to the Library of Congress and did a search on "True ghost stories". Their classification didn't help me much, but they show the Dewey number. Dewey Decimal System categorizes them as 133: 130 Parapsychology & occultisms 133 Specific topics in parapsychology & occultism So they'd be nonficti...

I think I had the time wrong: this is 37:32, which seems odd because I know I cut a little. 8)

I've been watching "A series of unfortunate events" and can't help thinking that Cochrane has some Beaudelaire genes.

Re: ~SOLO The Life of Thomas, Lord Cochrane - ans

I recorded chapter 8 tonight, and I've punch and roll edited it, but it's 1:15 am here and I don't have time to finish the mp3 export. Tomorrow with a bit of luck. 8)
