The Mill Mystery by Anna Katharine Green (1864 - 1935).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-mill-mystery-by-anna-katharine-green/
In the quiet New England village of S--, a young and beloved minister is found dead, ignominiously drowned in a dye vat in a dilapidated mill. Almost immediately, rumors of suicide begin to circulate. But was it suicide? How could a devout man of the cloth come to believe life was hopeless? The young woman to whom he was secretly engaged is adamant that it could not be. When this young woman tragically dies on the same day as her lover, it is left to her roommate Constance Sterling, a young woman without family or prospects, to determine the truth.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6805
  • 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!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The Mill Mystery. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Mill Mystery, by Anna Katharine Green. [Chapter number and title]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Mill Mystery by Anna Katharine Green. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter number and title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Mill Mystery, by Anna Katharine Green. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename millmystery_##_green_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. millmystery_01_green_128kb.mp3)

Since the soloist hasn't said there's a DPL lined up, I've put you in, Karl. Jacquerie, please confirm this is OK. :)

Thank you, Tricia! When you have a moment, can you please delete section 27 from the MW? I combined chapters and don't need that section.

Best regards,
Jacquerie

Hi, Mark,
Just a note to let you know I have opted not to read the snippets of poetry and other quotes at the beginnings of the chapters.

Regards,
Chris
