Do you mean in writing in book suggestions? That's a thought. It would stop me wittering on about it!

Hi Phil,

I'll be away for most of September and a bit slower to PL. Please upload whatever you wish, but I just wanted to tell you so you didn't think I'd gone AWOL!

Hi Erin, Thanks for letting me know! I've been very slow getting started with this one, mainly because I've over committed myself with the rugby league project and also an off-librivox project for which I am doing most of the PL as well as my own recording. So I think I'll use your break to catch up on those and get back to Phra in a month or so. All the best, Phil.

My, but this sounds familiar. Here's to overextending ourselves while there are so many exciting projects to do!

Good luck with the non-fantasy projects. And if you need longer to dig yourself out, don't worry. I can keep myself busy in October, too, and Phra's been around for hundreds of years, so he isn't going anywhere now.

Chapters 1 and 2 are PL OK. I've missed your voice!

Thanks, Erin! Chapters will be a little slower than usual as they are rather long. 50-60 minutes seems to be the norm from Ch. 3 onwards.

I am also putting up another project later today - 6 lectures by C. H. Herford starting with this one - https://archive.org/details/norsemythinengli00herf. Would you like to PL? It will be a slow burner, but I have the Norse Myth one ready t upload, so I may as well get it going.

All the best,

Phil

Oh, and thank you for the 'knight on horseback'! He is pinned to my office noticeboard :)

Ugh, I completely understand. The long chapters are a big part of my own solo is going so slowly. You're tougher than I am - I think in future I'll split anything that looks even medium length! Take however long you need.

I'd love to PL the lectures. Thank you for asking.

I'm glad the knight rode safely to you! That indie bookshop prints their own postcards, and they had really good taste in images!

Anne, C.H. Herford's lectures are now on the Launchpad. Could you MC for me?

All the best,

Phil

Goodness, I thought the long chapters were slowing you down. I'm impressed!

A couple of notes for 4:

26.06-26.10. P. 34, third paragraph. Repetition:
...and all the oth- and all the other chambers I went through...

28.54. P. 35, second half of second paragraph. Omission:
...as she and I sat upon some grassy bank [and talked of village statecraft,] of conquests over petty princelings...

36.00-36.04. P. 38, end of first paragraph:
...by the tuneful rapids [heard raids] of that ancient stream I knew so well.


Also, I have a question about section 3 (chapter 2). It was PL OK, but tonight I ran it through Checker with the settings ratcheted up to the super-sensitive levels, and it's saying that there's a bit more background noise than your files normally have (41.2 dB versus 24.2dB on the most recent chapter). I realise that Checker is a bit of a blunt tool, but could I just double check that the uploaded file wasn't a pre-noise-cleaned version, or something similar?
