The Witch and Other Stories by Anton Chekhov (1860 - 1904).

Quote:
A volume of fifteen stories from the master of brevity. Chekhov's collection includes "The Witch," "In the Ravine," and "Gusev," among others. ( Benjamin Lafferty)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1944
  • 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!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Story title]"

    END of recording:

Hello Ben,
I see you've gotten your feet wet with a section or 2, ready for the next adventure of doing a solo? I can be your MC. I'll set up the project for you, will be right back with more information.

Yay! Very excited. Thank you for taking this on. Also, just a quick question. There was no translator listed on the gutenberg site, only two producers. Should they be included somewhere?

Hi Ben,
Back again, and your solo project is set up. In a solo, you'll be your own book coordinator (BC) so there are a few new things to learn. See this link for details: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window - in a solo you keep the MW updated yourself. So now you'll be the one keeping an eye on all the details ;) hopefully with a little help from a dedicated PL-er (DPL).
To get into the MW you need a new password, different from the one you use in the forums - the above link will tell you how to get it.

In your solo, you can leave out the ID3 tags, I'll be able to add them automatically at time of cataloging - as long as you keep the MW filled in correctly, including the title fields.
Oh, I changed the [chapter number] to [story title] in the intro text, makes more sense.

About the translator: yes, I always dislike that in older books, when the translator is not mentioned - they weren't appreciated as much as they should be in those days. Nothing to be done about it. The producers mentioned on the site are just the ones responsible for making the electronic version of the book available on Gutenberg - important in their own way, but nothing to do with the content, so we leave them out.

OK, I think that's it. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions or problems. I suggest that we stay a few days in the Launch Pad with this project, to see whether we can attract a DPL to the project. But you can go ahead and start.

Have fun!

Hello Ben,
Let's move to the Going Solo forum. I'll post an 'ad' in the Listeners Wanted forum. But I would advise you just to start recording: PL-ers often like to see that a project really takes off before they stop by ;)

I'd be interested in DPL'ing. Reading Chekhov isn't an easy undertaking, despite the term "brevity" used here to describe his writings. But as Anna said, if you're prepared to do it, and she is going to MC, I will DPL, if you will have me that is.

Hi RoV, thank you! That will be great - it's Ben's first solo project so a DPL would be good to have! I'll add you to the MW.

I'm honored to do it. I listened to his previous readings of Chekhov just moments ago and it will be a pleasure. Thank-you.
