The Key of Gold: 23 Czech Folk Tales
Translated from Czech by Joseph Baudis

Hi, this is my first LibriVox book project!

This is a charming collection of folk tales. I was always enchanted by "The Twelve Months." So when I found the story in this collection, I thought it would be a good book to record for LibriVox. The individual stories range in length from less than one to twenty-eight pages. Readers who are just beginning at LibriVox may therefore like to start with a short chapter from this book.

Please post a reply here if you would like to claim a chapter to read from this book.
Include your name as you would like it to appear in the LibriVox book catalog listing, and, if available, your Web address.

Thank you!


MariaSC

Introduction for LibriVox Catalog:

Not your common fairy tales, this collection is a mixture of morals, quirkiness, and sarcasm. In it one finds ironic derivatives (if not roots) of well known fairy tales such as "The Brave Little Taylor" and "Beauty and the Beast," as well as some more unusual settings to impart the popular fairy tale themes of justice and happily ever after. Most stories are told with wry humor and often shocking irreverence for the expected fairy tale turn out. This is NOT a book for children, but one for adults who love fairy tales, and enjoy making fun of them.

DISCLAIMER: Story 09 contains some racially offensive material in its ending. Due to the LibriVox mission of reading, rather than rewriting, literature in the public domain, it has not been omitted from this anthology.

I don't have a Web page, but I do have a large enough hard drive. I thought we could use yousendit.com...

I certainly can download and save several gigs on my hard drive...

Hey Maria and Betsie,
Rainer and Kri have come up with a wonderful alternative to yousendit. Send either one a PM and take advantage of the non-yousendity goodness!

How do you want the introduction done? I can think of a number of different ways to do it, all of which makes sense. Do you want the chapter number to be stated as well as the chapter title? (IE. "Chapter 24: Not a Real Chapter") or should we leave it out, since they're not chapters so much as independent stories?

Also, should we read the full title, The Key of Gold: 23 Czech Folk Tales, or just "The Key of Gold"?

And, since I'm asking lots of questions anyway, how exactly is "Baudis" pronounced? (Or perhaps I should be asking, how are we as a group going to agree to pronounce it, if no one actually knows.)

Sorry for all the questions, I went to start recording a story, and realized that I wasn't entirely sure how to begin it!

Hi Alys,

Thanks for all the questions! And, thank you so much for planning to read a part of this project! I'm guessing that you are thinking of reading V?tazko.

First, in answer to your questions:
*I think the best way to introduce the stories is by their names, not chapter number.
*I would like the book to be named by its full title: "The Key of Gold: 23 Czech Folk Tales.
*I'm not sure, but I believe Baudis is pronounced Baudish (baud-ish).

Some of these names are spelled with characters that are not in the English alphabet. This is why I posted the alternative Web site: It seems to display these other letters better than (or, at least differently from) the first site I found with this text.
I'm not sure myself how to pronounce the few names that use these letters.
*I would love suggestions. (I believe V?tazko is pronounced Vee-Tahz-ko.)

My sister's best friend is Czech, I'm sure she could help us with some pronunciation. Unfortunately, she's visiting family in the Czech Republic at the moment, so we'd have to wait a week or two before we could get her opinion.

...But I think we can start on most of these stories...They don't all have special letters. I probably should wait before recording the introduction and preface, as they are full of references.
