Killgloom Park by Neil Boyton, S.J. (1884-1956) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/killgloom-park-by-neil-boyton-s-j/
Join Angelo Daily and his chums during a fun filled summer at Killgloom Park, a Coney Island, New York amusement park in the 1930's. A runaway tiger! Tracking down a wanted thief! Climbing down a ferris wheel in the middle of the night! These are just a few of the exciting things that happen during this adventurous summer!

The author grew up in the world of amusement parks, providing first hand material for two of his boys books – “On the Sands of Coney” and its sequel, this title - “Killgloom Park”. (“On the Sands of Coney” is still under copyright, and cannot be recorded, but it is not necessary to be familiar with it to enjoy this book!) The author was a Catholic Jesuit Priest, and in 1926 he was appointed a Scout Chaplain for the Greater New York City Scout Camps. He spent many years involved with the Boy Scouts, and wrote a long list of stories and books, mainly fiction, for and about scouts. (Summary by Maria Therese)

  • Target completion date: December 2010
  • Text source (only read from this text!): Hard copy – PG Clearance OK Key: 20100915162345boytonsj

    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).

I am currently cataloging your Priest on Horseback so I might as well set this one up while I am waiting on that one to upload, Maria. All set as soon as a DPL shows up.

Maria, chapter 2 PL OK

I don't think this is important but in the Metadata the artist and book title are switched.

Hi Phil,

Whoops! The one time I type them in by hand instead of copying and pasting. :-)

It's not a big deal, as Barry said for his MC projects they are not even necessary at all, as they can be automatically be put in at cataloging. I just keep doing them out of habit. :-) Thanks for catching it!

Chapter 5 PL OK

Maria, there is a pause at 10:07 in chapter 5 that longer than your usual pause between words and did not seem like you intentionally put it there. perhaps 3 or 4 seconds.

That was an exciting chapter with the escaped tiger and all

Boy, you really ARE keeping them coming! :D
