Bart--Before I PL this submission, I want to make sure that we are O.K. on the copyright issue. The Archive.org link shows the following information:

Starring interplanetary hero Northwest Smith.
Synopsis: "A story of an interplanetary Medusa whose deadly love and immortal passion make a thrill no one will ever forget."

I'm crossing my fingers that we will be able to use this recording...
Kind regards,

I had the same thought earlier, but I think it's ok. The CC Public domain mark means "This work has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights."

The source publication isn't in Gutenberg, but it seems to fall into the same category as all the SF/Fantasy pulp mags found there, many of them published well into the 1930s, with notices to the effect that an exhaustive search has not revealed that copyright was ever renewed on this story (or words to that effect).

Just my 2 cents... :)

Hi, Roberta--Our MC, Bart, has confirmed that there is no difficulty with the copyright. :thumbs: I was under the mistaken impression that Creative Commons licenses were problematic. So I will try to proof-listen to your submission later this evening. Sorry for the delay. (And thanks, Martin, for your thoughts as well.)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hi, Roberta--I listened to your story late yesterday evening. Very nice! :clap: You have a beautiful, expressive voice, and I loved the story! :) Your technical specs are just fine, but we do have a few things to fix.

Section 13 (Shambleau):
--From ~5:17 to 6:35 there are repeated attempts to record "...stared for a moment with a strange expression of incredulity on his face..." And there is also some quite offensive language in there (not from the text).Image Could you please get that portion of the track straightened up for me?
--At ~18:42 there is about an 8-second silence that should be shortened. (Lengthy silences in the middle of a recording can often be confusing for listeners, like "What happened? Is that the end?") And then immediately following the silence, the portion in red has been omitted from the recording "She pattered along a pace or two behind him, making no effort to keep up with his long strides, and though Smith..."
--At ~19:16 there is a repeat "For the few pedestrians--For the few pedestrians he met..."
--At ~1:05:35 there is a repeated sentence "He lay still for a few minutes while the warmth of the whisky went through him, and memory sluggishly began to permeate his brain with the spread of the segir."

Make the corrections above and upload using the same file name, post the link here again along with the new track length--and I will spot-check your edits. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance. I look forward to hearing lots more from you around LibriVox, Roberta!

I might mention for your future recordings: It seemed that you might have pasted some silence in at various places in the recording? If you want to do that, it is often better to use some ambient room silence (mic on but no talking) rather than using generated dead silence. But it is also perfectly fine to leave breath sounds in the recording--listeners do expect to hear breathing. If you listen to commercially recorded audiobooks, you will notice the breath intakes there. :)

Great job on a lengthy first recording!! :thumbs:
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hi Lucretia,

Thanks so very much for your kind words and feedback. I truly appreciate it! I will get those errors straightened out this weekend and then re-submit.

Oops! Sorry about the part with the language, LOL...That was a mistake and was supposed to be taken out during editing. I greatly apologize for that and will have it removed! :oops:

OK, like I said, I'll fix the errors and will re-upload for you. Thanks again!

Hi Lucretia,

Here is my updated/edited recording of Shambleau:

https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor024_shambleau_clmoore_rj_128kb.mp3

I fixed all the parts you mentioned and also removed those patches of dead silence as you had suggested. You were right, it does sound much cleaner now. Thanks for the advice!

Let me know if this is OK or if there is anything else you need me to edit.

Thanks,


Roberta

Thank you, Roberta, for the fixes--sounds very good! :thumbs:

You read so very expresssively--it makes me wonder if you would enjoy some of our Dramatic Readings? If you haven't seen the thread, you might browse around a bit here: Readers Wanted: Dramatic Works. Things are handled a bit differently than just reading the chapters (the character parts are claimed instead), but you might see something that you would enjoy. Thank you again--I really enjoyed listening to your story! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Thanks so very much, Lucretia! I will look into some of the dramatic works. That sounds right up my alley!

Since you enjoyed the story, I would highly recommend checking out C.L. Moore's "Jirel Of Joiry" tales. They are fantastic!

OK, thanks again. I look forward to doing more readings for LibriVox! :D
