Here's another story for the collection. It's a short one, taken from THE UNCOMMON TRAVELER ... but a goodie! Who would have thought that Charlie Dickens could have such a streak in him?

• link to text: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/914/914-h/914-h.htm#page120
• author name: Charles Dickens
• title of the story: Captain Murderer
• duration: 7:22
• URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor028_captainmurderer_dickens_ts_128kb.mp3

Enjoy!
I clicked through to read this and it looks like the book title is Uncommercial Traveler. Also, should the story title be Nurse's Stories? That is the chapter heading is.

Although the forum post is not quite accurate, the reader has named the book correctly in the beginning of the reading and says that it is an excerpt from Chapter 15. I think that is okay, but Bart will let us know for sure.

There is a slight problem. Captain Murderer is not an official title.
For the recording I don't mind, but in the catalog I will change the title to: The Uncommercial Traveller, excerpt from Chapter 15
Thanks for telling us.

Hello!
Could i submit "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, or is this a prose only collection? :?
Here is the text URL: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/151/151-h/151-h.htm
It is REALLY a hair-raising poem!

Thanks for correctly naming the story in the catalog! :)

I used the title "Captain Murderer" in my submission and recording because I've been recently listening to abridged readings of the Charles Dickens supernatural stories on BBC Radio 4 Extra, and they've been using separate story titles even though the stories came from THE UNCOMMON TRAVELLER.
