If there is not a specific byline, then you can list the author as Scientific American. That's what we usually do with magazine and newspaper articles that are not attributed with an author. For example,

Hi,
We missed out on a poem from Larry so I thought this one might suit!

Thank you for your sections, Noel! MW updated and ready for PL!

Larry, I have PLed Section 1 and it's PL OK! Thanks again!

I also have corrected the repeat you found in section 4 and uploaded again with a new time, also correcting the intro and outro to reflect the new shortened format, so it's ready for spot PL!

Somehow this has been submitted in stereo instead of mono format.

Hi,
Here is the corrected "Prickly-Pears" by Grant Allen
https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/coffeebreak011_pricklypears_allen_128kb.mp3
Length = 13:48

and here is hopefully a mono version of "A Ballade Of Evolution"
I have no idea of what went wrong! The recordings were done at the same time and ??? It took my son's intervention to sort it out by coppying it into a new Audacity window.

Alright, this is my very first actual contribution, so hopefully I got everything put together correctly! For my subject I chose the first widely known report in Europe of the practice of smallpox inoculation, as reported to the Royal Society in 1714. This knowledge served as the foundation for humanity's first ever complete eradication of a disease, so I thought it was a suitably notable item for this collection :D

Thanks for the next section and your first LV submission, Mimir!! How would you like to be listed in the LV catalog?

Jo, could you please add John Woodward to the author database? It looks like this was edited by him. Thanks!

Very interesting piece, nicely read!

Welcome to LibriVox :clap:
I think you are off to a great start, and I look forward to seeing/hearing more readings from you.

Oh -- PL OK :thumbs:

Thank you both for the appreciation! I don't think I'll be reading anything too scandalous, so I'll go with my real name, Evan Armour, for the catalog. I also look forward to contributing some more :D

I know you said you would prefer nonfiction, but would you be willing to accept poetry? I would like to record Constance Naden's 'The Astronomer', which should be between 3 and 15 minutes, and possibly 'Scientific Wooing', which I'm hoping will be more than three minutes.

The scan is from a complete poems volume, published in 1894:

Great question! Yes, poetry and fiction are both very welcome for coffee break collections.
