Short Story Collection Vol 067 by various ( - 0).
All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/short-story-collection-vol-067/

This collection is for any short story in the English Language in the public domain, preferably less than 60 minutes. You are welcome to contribute as many as you wish, and there is no need to "sign-up" before recording as long as the work is clearly in the public domain.

Please ask here if the story was published after 1922 or if you are unsure for any other reason about its public domain status. Note that translations attract their own new copyright and must also have been published before 1923.

Multiple versions are always welcome, so you can record a story that has been recorded before. (If the same stories are submitted twice in the same collection, we will carry the second version over to the next collection) .

You may prefer to submit your recording to one of the other more specialized short story collections.
    1. There is no need to state your intention to record a story.
      Just choose a Public Domain short story (under 60 minutes) in English and when you have recorded it, post it here.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? This collection will remain open until we have 20 stories. I will then close it, but the next volume will be along soon after.
    4. Where do I find the text? Any Public Domain text is acceptable. A good place to start is http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=short+stories

    5. If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Welcome... In these collections, things work a bit differently than in regular books.
First, you find a Public Domain short story and record and upload it, giving me the information requested in the first post. I'll then add it to the Magic Window, in the next available space. We keep going until we collect 20 stories, then I can catalog the collection and open the next one. There is no need to claim a spot, or tell me which story you intend to read, unless you are unsure of the public domain status. If it duplicates a story from another collection, that's fine; if it duplicates one from the same collection, I'll just hold it over to the next collection.

Are stories intended for a younger audience welcome in these collections, or do there tend to be completed in separate projects?

Thank you for asking. These stories are intended for adults and, as you suggest, there is a separate children's collection: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=63043
There are also usually collections for science fiction, horror and non-fiction. You will find all these in the Short Works forum, and if there isn't one at any particular time, it just means that a collection was recently completed and if you wait a couple of days, a new one will open up.

(Not one of my best readings, I'm afraid, but it was a while back. It's a good story though, i think, and excellent writing).
