Short Story Collection Vol. 010
Please select and record any short story (fiction or short essay) in the public domain. Try to stick to works that run less than 60 minutes, but we're flexible. You are welcome to contribute as many as you wish, and there is no need to "sign-up"...if the work is clearly in the public domain, just start recording. Multiple versions are always welcome, so don't worry whether someone else has recorded your selection already; we're happy to hear your version too =)
After 10 stories are submitted, we will collect them, catalog them, and make them available to the public.
