Will there be a Christmas Short Works Collection 2018 ?

Hi

I see there's a Christmas Carol collection for 2018, but I can't see any Christmas Short Works Collection. Have I missed it?

Happy to contribute up to four readings over the next month, if there is going to be one.

I haven't forgotten Arraignment, but have not been feeling 100% recently. Will (really) do it soon.

Re: Multilingual Christmas Short Works Collection 2017 - rap

Re: [solo] The Tales of Mother Goose - philc

Something's not right. If you try to stream individual stories from

https://librivox.org/the-tales-of-mother-goose-by-charles-perrault/

you get a 'file not found' message.
