Re: Multi-volume works still to be completed

I think that we only have series 1 of The Ingoldsby Legends by The Rev. Richard H. Barham. There are three series and they are sometimes published as each series one volume.

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

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 whole chapter, or just the letter (they choose) should I ask in "Readers Wanted: Languages other than English "?...

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 ...

[HELP FOUND] 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...
