Re: ~GROUP Something Childish and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield - ke

Sections 16, 17, and 18 (the dramatic readings) are now ready for PL. As we don't have a dedicated PLer, I would be grateful for the assistance of anyone who fancies listening to these oddball stories. A link direct to the first page of section 16: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.$b242632...

Re: ~GROUP Something Childish and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield - ke

Here is Section 14. Very haunting and atmospheric. Leaves you thinking about what is going on - I could easily see this as an old black and white movie. Delightful. https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/somethingchildish_14_mansfield_128kb.mp3 Length 33:31 Thanks, Todd Yes, another odd one. Some g...

Joe Flint is also PL OK! Great job on this role, Rob! I couldn't help but chuckle when you put that higher pitched "fair play," in there :lol:
Thanks, Elijah! He’s a little rascal: my favourite sort of character.

Re: Short Story Collection 086 - lt

I couldn't find any information on Aimée Lowther so I can't supply her birth or death dates at the moment. Someone has pointed me to a biography of Aimée‘s sister, which confirms she lived 1869-1935. If you add her to the author database, her bio could be: “Aimée Lowther was an amateur actor in pla...

Re: [INTERVIEWS] Oscar Wilde: North American Interviews, 1882-1883 - jo

In his defense, he must have been exhausted from the travel. There were no bullet trains or smooth roads. And he was on the defensive with most of these journalists, most of whom were reporting on crime and politics. Yes, or out to make him into a laughing stock: there's one from San Francisco in p...

Re: [INTERVIEWS] Oscar Wilde: North American Interviews, 1882-1883 - jo

I'm glad you're not in a terrible rush. I listened to six sections yesterday and was reminded how repetitive the questions and answers are. Still enjoyable enough, however! True enough. I'm imagining that most listeners will just want to skip to the interviews that took place in their own towns. I ...

Re: Short Story Collection 086 - lt

Hi Lynne, Here are four stories by Oscar Wilde. Actually, they were told by him to Aimée Lowther, who copied them down and submitted them to a magazine called The Mask after Wilde's death. I have read the credits as "[Title] by Oscar Wilde, as told to Aimée Lowther", as I thought that was the most a...

Re: [INTERVIEWS] Oscar Wilde: North American Interviews, 1882-1883 - jo

And another batch for PL. Absolutely no rush on these. I only managed to record so many this past couple of weeks because I was away from home and had nothing else to do. I still have to find the originals of some of the interviews I want to record, so I expect to be working on this project until at...

Hi Kevin, I noticed that my last batch of uploads was missing the '_128kb' at the end of each file name. I have re-uploaded them with the suffix added, and updated the links. Sorry for the bother. They are otherwise identical to the original uploads. 10 in honor https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyour...
