Thank you.
What name do you want me to use as a catalog name?
Our proof listener will have a listen soon.

Hope its ok as I'm a newbie
Thanks
Hi, Nick--You did a nice job on the recording! Tech specs are all good, very nice voice and pacing. I have a few corrections for you.

Section 15 (A Diagnosis of Death):
--At ~3:38 the portion in red is omitted from the recording "...he had expounded in a book that did not commend itself to the approval of his professional brethren, who, indeed, considered him not entirely sane.
--At ~9:30 the portion in red is omitted from the recording "Hawver was apparently growing nervous. 'I knew him. I have read his book, as will every physician some day. It is one of the most striking and important of the century's contributions to medical science. Yes, I knew him...' "
--At ~10:02 I hear "'No, however, you are the healthiest man I ever knew"--but it should be instead "'No, Hawver; you are the healthiest man I ever knew" (Perhaps we should correct this since it is the name of the character to whom the statement is addressed--?)

Upload the corrected file using the same file name, post the link here in this thread again along with the new length of the recording--and I will spot-check your edits. Hang in there. It's all pretty complicated at first, but it gets easier! And thanks! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hello Bart,

I hope that you will accept:

Title: The Truth about Pyecraft
Author: H.G. Wells
Year: 1903
Source: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1743/pg1743.txt
Duration: 24:41
Uploaded to: https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor024_truthaboutpyecraft_wells_clh_128kb.mp3

This is my first recording for LibriVox. Can I please just be listed as C (my first initial)?

Thank you,
C.L. Hinton

P. S.
They have this story listed on classichorrorstories.com, but I'm not 100% certain it should be considered "horror." It does have "otherworldly" going for it, though. If you don't think it fits with this collection, please let me know.

Thank you C. I'm happy to add your story to the collection.

Your catalog name could be C (I've added it that way in the database), but since your forum name already reveals more, it doesn't seem a logical choice. If you want a change, just tell me (or another admin). It's easy to do.

Let's wait for Lucretia to have a listen.

Hi again, Bart

Thanks for adding me. In truth, I would prefer to have my user name also be "C" but signups tend to forbid such short names, so I didn't even think to try. I don't mind the initials and last name for a username, but I just wouldn't introduce or name myself that way in person or on recordings...

Cheers,
C

Hi, Nick--I spot-checked your edited file. We're just about there, but not quite. You corrected my first and third PL notes very nicely--thank you! But there is a problem regarding the second note. The previously omitted portion is still not there, and the preceding sentence is now omitted as well.

Section 15 (A Diagnosis of Death):
--At ~9:32 The portion in italics is omitted from the recording:
"Hawver was apparently growing nervous.
'I knew him. I have read his book, as will every physician some day. It is one of the most striking and important of the century's contributions to medical science.
Yes, I knew him...' "

Sorry to ask you for another edit, but could you add the missing sentences, please? Upload again using the same file name, and also give us the new length of the recording in mm:ss--then I'll take another quick look. Please don't hesitate to ask questions if you run into any problems--there are lots of friendly people here who will be happy to assist you! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hi, Chiquito--Good to see you here again! :)

Section 17 (The Realm of the Unreal):
--At ~12:00 the portion in red is omitted from the recording "...to the proper time revelations of darker import. Passing along what had been a gravel path, I saw emerging from shadow the figure of Dr. Dorrimore.

Section 18 (The Stolen Body):
--At ~32:33 there is one small repeat “…because that world is silent, yet—yet he knew them for men…” This may not be worth uploading a large file again, I don't know? I'll leave it up to you.
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Nicely done, Chiquito--thank you! :) Just a couple of notes--

Section 19 (The Premature Burial):
--At ~16:52 there is a repeat "...with memory of dear friends who would fly to save us if but informed of our fate--with memory of dear friends who would fly to save us if but informed of our fate..."
--At ~22:45 the text shows "...I sank into slumber"--but I hear "...I slank into slumber"
Kind regards,
Lucretia
