Re: SOLO Taras Bulba by Gogol

I've been told that LibriVox doesn't accept Wikisource. Note that it's backed by https://archive.org/details/tarasbulbataleof00gogouoft Google scans at the Internet Archive, and the text can be compared word for word with the scans at https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Taras_Bulba._A_Tale_of_the_C...

Re: What caused the Detroit [1943] riot? : an analysis

The Hathi record says it's full view, and if you click on it it says it's "Public Domain in the United States". Almost certainly one of many, many things that didn't get renewed.

Re: [PD 2021] The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell, 1924

Wikisource: (1) often doesn't tell what edition they used. In this case, since WE are having such a hard time finding the original 1924 magazine edition, I suspect their text is from 1925 as well. Wikisource almost always says what edition is used on the Talk page. In this case, it was copied from ...

Re: 1924

If you're worried about Germany, the English translator of Mann's works, Helen Tracy Lowe-Porter, didn't die until 1963.

Re: 1924

Looks like it was published in German in 1924, so the German version would be PD in the US, yes. Of course, it would have to be a first edition copy, as later editions have their own copyright. And if you're wanting an English translation, then I think you'd have to wait awhile, unless there were s...

Re: In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust

The publication date listed on the Archive link listed in the first post of this thread is 1927 suggesting it is not PD. On closer inspection of the title page of the Archive copy I see a copywrite date of 2016! :shock: According to Wikipedia, Scott Moncrieff completed the translation of the first ...

The House of Death by Fannie Georgia Stroup

The first issue of Weird Tales (1923) has "The House of Death", by Fannie Georgia Stroup. It's about 3000 words, so it should go in one of the Short Story reads, or a read of the entire issue. I don't do much reading, and for this work, a work by a female author with female characters, I think it pr...

Re: Willing to pay for Alice in Wonderland in Spanish

According to Alice in a world of wonderlands , there was a 1914-15 abridged edition published in the weekly Los Muchachos , translated by Anonymous. That should be good in the US and world-wide. The 1927 Barcelona edition, Alicia en el pais de las maravillas was translated by Juan Gutiérrez Gili, wh...

Re: Request for more LGBT content

This doesn't appear to be in the catalogue. PD in the USA it says and often mentioned side by side with The Sins of the Cities of the Plain. Part attributed to Oscar Wilde. Nobody knows for sure. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Teleny,_or_The_Reverse_of_the_Medal I'm sure this one has been mentioned...

The end silence is currently 17 seconds long, if you could cut that down to just 5 seconds, then your recording will be perfect!
