I would like to claim as a solo Biography of an American Bondman. Do I proceed to setting it up on the Launchpad? Jim
Yes, just head over to the New Projects forum and start it up. (And let me know when you do, so I can erase it from the list.)

Also -

The Sport of the Gods by Paul Laurence Dunbar
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17854

didn't make it into the list last time.
Thanks! I'll double-check to see which of these are in the catalogue and put them on the list.

Dunbar is a little difficult, since the "complete" collection effectively makes it unnecessary to do all of his collections individually. But I'll put them all there for posterity's sake regardless. :-)

I put Frederick Douglass by Charles W. Chesnutt on the Launch Pad yesterday to record, just waiting for an MC now.
