Nice selection and excellent reading!... no worries about it being an essay.... I think it's safe to say that perhaps 75% of what Twain wrote, even when claiming it to be a true story, was indeed fiction =)

Hi Bill, I just checked the email you sent... but the link at yousendit doesn't seem to be working... not sure what that's all about (I'm sure it's just yousendit being fickle though) ... would you please try sending it to me again? Thanks =)

Hi Betsie,

I've resent "Dalyrimple," and it appears to have worked just fine. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Bill

Betsie,

I'm working on The Gray Wolf by George MacDonald. Should be ready in the next few days.

Cheers,
harvey


PS: What does "SW/tc" mean (I haven't seen any guide to LibriVox lingo). The only thing I can think of for "tc" is thistlechick.

Doh! Of course, SW = Short Works. So tc is likely the coordinator's initials, yes?

ah... SW stands for Short Works and tc indicates that thistlechick will be cataloging the project (Metadata Coordinator...MC) there is more information about this here: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#7122

but essentially, we code the projects by general genre type so that users can scan through looking for they types of work they prefer working on... and the MC initials help the MC's better coordinate and also let readers know who to contact with questions.

I realized this info isn't in the FAQ's for this forum... I'll see if we can add it. Thanks for asking =)
