This project is complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-great-god-pan-by-arthur-machen/


The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen (1863-1947) .

"The Great God Pan" is a novella written by Arthur Machen. A version of the story was published in the magazine Whirlwind in 1890, and Machen revised and extended it for its book publication (together with another story, "The Inmost Light") in 1894. On publication it was widely denounced by the press as degenerate and horrific because of its decadent style and sexual content, although it has since garnered a reputation as a classic of horror. Machen’s story was only one of many at the time to focus on Pan as a useful symbol for the power of nature and paganism. The title was taken from the poem "A Musical Instrument" published in 1862 by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in which the first line of every stanza ends "... the great god Pan."

    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 will be opened up to a group project as soon as a Book Coordinator can be 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 have it re-instated).
    ===========================================
    This paragraph is temporary and will be replaced by the MC with the list of sections and reader (Magic Window) once this project is in the admin system.
    Soloist - please provide *all of* the following:
    ============================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:

    • "Chapter [number] of The Great God Pan. - 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]"
    • Say:
      "The Great God Pan, by Arthur Machen. [Chapter]"

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain.
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Only if applicable, say:

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Great God Pan, by Arthur Machen."

OK, I've never done solo work before, so I hope the above is correct. I also am assuming that the text is kosher. This story appears (according to gutenberg.org) to be in the public domain in the USA, where I live. I believe it is still subject to copyright in Great Britain.

Any further guidance would be helpful. Thanks!

Looks good, Ethan. Welcome to the world of solos! :)

The text is fine for US residents and life + 50 countries.

One consideration: 8 sections will be pretty short recordings. I show the total word count at under 23,000 words, which will put the total recording time at 2 and 2-1/2 hours. You can easily double up on the chapters and end up with sections still under an hour. Of course, you're welcome to keep the count as is if you like, it's your project. Just something to be aware of.

Anyway... I can set this up for you. Be back with the MW shortly.

This sounds very interesting. I'd love to DPL for you, if you're still looking for someone. :)

Section 2 will be up later this week. In the meantime, I note that the MW seems not to have survived the transition to the new forum... :(

That's because your well-intentioned, if somewhat hapless, MC is little disorganized at the moment. :) Fixed...

Thanks, Ethan.

aidanbrack is looking like a no-show. He hasn't been around for a month now. It's up to you, but if you want to start looking for others to PL or DPL we can post over at Listeners Wanted.
