30 Ghost Stories by Various authors( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/30-ghost-stories-by-various/
17 short stories from the book "Twenty-Five Ghost Stories" and 13 shorts from the book "Indian Ghost Stories". Note that seven stories from "Twenty-Five Ghost Stories" exist in the catalog and were not recorded. ( Kirk Ziegler)
  • Text source (only read from this text!):
    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/53419
    https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17113

  • 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!

Kirk,

Yes you can. I will adjust the first post and move this to "Going Solo".

Happy to have you PL Cheryl. Hope they aren't too cheesy though. They're pretty short except for a couple of them.

Did you use the files we uploaded for each section? If you like I'll ask David O. if we can do it again for this project. I have them all sorted by section.

We missed this one, but the gun is still loaded. We had more wind today than yesterday when Dorian was off shore to the east.
