Hi, Michele--You did a good job on your edits--thank you for your diligence in working through those corrections.

Section 04 (The Upper Berth): PL OK

The editing will become easier as you do more sections (although it still takes me a lot of time to edit my files). I really cannot recommend Phil Chenevert's instructional videos highly enough. He covers many different topics about using Audacity to record and edit and about LibriVox in general. You can find a list of his videos here.

I hope to be hearing more from you! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

I am new volunteer and I found a story through the link given in the forum at :
http://www.classichorrorstories.com/stories/stories.html

I would like to read the story :

The Room in the Tower (1912)
by E. F. Benson


Do we have to choose stories posted somewhere in the forum or we can choose any story from any website

How does it work? How should I choose stories? Who would assign them?

You don't have to claim a story.
Just read it and send it to me with all the information needed.
You'll find all the instructions in the first post of this thread.

Hi Bart,
I am new to the Short Ghost and Horror segment of Librivox; I usually go for the SciFi.
Would you please take a look at the story below and see if there is room for it; it is a little longer than the usual sixty minutes, but not by much, so I hope you will consider it. It was a good read and I know the Author is popular (particularly with me)

Title:The insanity of Jones
Author:Algernon Blackwood
Length:Approx 66 minutes
Story URL:http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/16726/pg16726.txt

Many thanks,
Andy Sames (Ansam)

Thank you Andy. I'll accept 66 minutes and 29 seconds.
Indeed, the author is very much appreciated.

Wow, Andy--I listened to your section very late last night (mistake! :shock: )--what a story and what a marvelous reading! :clap: That torture scene had me cringing.

Section 13: (The Insanity of Jones): PL OK

Hope to hear more from you here...
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Quick question --

So I found a bunch of Weird Tales scans on archive.org. According to the institution that scanned these documents, the sections posted online are all public domain. The sections that have had copyright renewals have been excised. My question: Have you encountered these scans before? Can you confirm or deny the copyright status of these stories? Would it be possible to record some of these for this collection?

I do have an opinion about this, but I'm asking for a second opinion first. I'll report back as soon as possible.

The official policy is:
Source texts must be in the Public Domain, published prior to 1923 or with expired copyright. Any texts with expired copyright after 1923 must be from Gutenberg.org.
This means that you have to ask Gutenberg for copyright clearance before recording.

That's what I thought. If someone wants to check with PG, you definitely should. This would be an excellent resource for short stories.
