[SOLO] The Girl from Farris' by Edgar Rice Burroughs (1911 - 1950).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-girl-from-farriss-by-edgar-rice-burroughs/
Ever want to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, only to have the whole world fight to keep you down? Ever been upstanding and righteous, only to have those around you take advantage of you? In the most unique of circumstances, watch a woman flee from a lavish world of slavery in a brothel, to live in the muck and mire of squalor. With the law chasing after her, The Girl from Farris' must find a way to merely survive. And in other parts of town, watch an upstanding citizen go from Riches to Rags as his fiance' and business partners slowly tear down the soul of the man. Watch as these two paths collide at different points in their lives. Will it be happily ever after, or a bitter end?
Summary by Joe DeNoia
Top
( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0601491h.html
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hello,

As a heads-up, I did not locate this on the Gutenberg site. However, it is in the Public Domain.
So I have linked to the wiki page for the text.

I'm not sure about that as a source . It's also on PG Australia which usually means that PG were unable to clear it for the USA.
It was published as a magazine serial in 1916 but PG , and hence us, would need to have proof that the text is from the magazine , not the book which was published in the 1950's

Wikisource doesn't even say where the etext is from . If you could find scans of the original publication with dates showing and read from those scans it would be fine for us. Someone else may have an idea .

What about this one:
http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0601491h.html

Looks like it is coming from the original.

I did say about that in my first post. Why do you think it's original - did I miss something ? The image is just from a ERB website. Australia , like almost all of the world, bases PD on the author's death date , he is PD in Australia.

I have a message into them, to see if it can be cleared up further.

You're in Australia...can't you just go next door and ask? :hmm:

Wow... Just got an almost immediately response:

Hi,

It is from All-Story. The image after the Table of contetns is from the
magazine. See http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0601491h.html

Hi Joe,

If this pushes through I'd like to be the DPL for this. Don't worry about me being a new joiner - I know how the PL-ing works, did it myself a few years back.

Keeping my fingers crossed it does!
Thanks,

Ava Gonzales
