Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814 - 1873).


Carmilla is a Gothic novella by Irish author Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, originally published in 1871-1872 as a serial in the London-based literary magazine The Dark Blue. It is one of the early works of vampire fiction, predating Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897) by 26 years. The story is narrated by Laura, a young woman who falls under the spell of the mysterious Carmilla. The story is often anthologized and has been adapted many times in film, theatre, radio, and television.
(summary adapted from Wikipedia by Louise J. Belle)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10007
  • 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!

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Here is section 00, Prologue:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/carmilla_00_lefanu_128kb.mp3
Duration 2:25

N.B.:
I didn't put it in the MW, though not for lack of trying. :roll:
I'm a little clumsy with the section compiler.
I pasted the URL in the chart, but it doesn't want to save/stick...?
:help:

O, YAY indeed!
I had some trouble with this one; didn't feel I was in good voice.
So I'm glad it's OK!

More intrigue coming soon... :shock:
