Re: ~73% of books published 1924-63 are now in the public domain

As someone who has spent sometime looking up non-renewed books, most people won't get that feeling from their samples. Most of the A-list authors and most of the A-list books were renewed. E.g. I did "A History of Bibliographies of Bibliographies" for Gutenberg, but looking at fiction authors I know...

Re: [ANSWERED] Book from own library

As for uploading scans of a full book, see http://raj.blog.archive.org/2011/02/24/new-upload-format-_images-zip-for-scribe-style-uploads/; in short, if you can just put the scans in a zip file, the Internet Archive can produce a PDF from it.

Re: [NOT PD US] Is The Shadow Over Innsmouth Public Domain?

I'm fairly confident if its status was clear that it would be available at Project Gutenberg It's the only book printing of Lovecraft in his life, and Abebooks has the book's dust jacket for $385, and the book for $1,750. I think Project Gutenberg not having it says more about the book's rarity and...

Re: [NOT PD US] Is The Shadow Over Innsmouth Public Domain?

I'm not going to say that Librivox will accept it, but it was published in the US in 1936, and there's no copyright renewal for it, so it should be PD US.

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!
