00 is the same file you Ok'd. It just has the 10 seconds. I uploaded that a few times because first there wasn't enough seconds of silence in the beginning. Then I put 10 seconds of silence at the end and then uploaded that! LOL. IE would hang on the upload page and I tried it a few times. I switched over to Chrome which is WAY better to upload with. So it's the same file, but with added seconds and just mistakenly uploaded a few times. I thought it wouldn't upload with IE, but I guess it did! Same with some of the others.

I make a throat clearing sound on #16. hehe

Eva! Interesting how The Fables get darker as they go on. Sheesh!!! There is a lot of Fables I never heard before and I can see why they're not included in most Fable compilations. Phew! LOL!

I'm working on cataloging this, but the times in the MW - some of them - are way off from the files in the uploader. Would you please check the times in the MW and make sure they're accurate? I don't want to have to listen through a bunch of files to see if the 3 minutes additional are because it's an unedited file. :shock:

Thanks!

Ah, that makes it much easier - thank you! There's one problem, then:

Section 03 - Fables 41-60
Magic Window has 20:59; File I have is 24:37. Would you (or the DPL) double check this file to make sure it's edited and OK?

EDIT: Never mind. I listened, and it's OK.

One very important thing, though. It turns out that the translator Townsend discovered that these were not originally for children and translated it that way. His version is designed to return the Fables to the adult audience,so it's got fun things like mass suicide, dreadful maulings, characters being tortured, characters falling to their death, BLATANT sexism and racism, characters being skinned alive, murder-suicide, child abuse, child murder, characters turning into Werewolves, infanticide, fascism, starvation, characters being torn apart by animals while still alive, mass-drowning, cannibalism, the murder of entire families, characters attempting suicide by crushing their head under a giant wheel, and characters being pursued by Death itself in the form of the Grim Reaper. ...phew...LOL

Here's what I wrote on the back of the cover. I actually wrote it myself.

"The Fables of Aesop have been mostly considered, down the Centuries, as children's stories. This collection of 312 Aesop's Fables, based on the 19th Century research and literal translation from the original Greek by George Fyler Townsend, returns these allegories of human strength and human weakness to the adult audience for whom they were written."

I'll put that in as part of the summary on the catalog page, and remove the Children genre. Thanks for the info!
