The White Wolf and Other Fireside Tales by Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch (1863 - 1944).
This lively collection of stories by Q, aka the imaginative and prolific man of letters Arthur Quiller-Couch, includes tales of mystery, horror, and adventure. Beware. There will be ghosts, pirates, scholars, death, taxes, at least one princess, and a ship named the White Wolf. ( A. Gramour)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-white-wolf-and-other-fireside-tales-by-sir-arthur-thomas-quiller-couch/
  • MC/BC: alg1001
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14817
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! 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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

Section 1:
https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/whitewolf_01_quiller-couch_128kb.mp3
Time is 10:19

Section 2:
https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/whitewolf_02_quiller-couch_128kb.mp3
Time is 36:40

It wasn't until the end of section 2 that I realized the (1) next to the section title was a footnote. But the footnote basically summarizes the entire story, so felt odd to me coming immediately after the title. I made an "author's note" at the end of the section, and hope that's okay, but also happy to move it around.

And, may I also claim sections 3 and 4?

Hi Kate,
That sounds like the best place for the footnote.
Sinbad on Burrator is yours. "Q" is a lot of fun. Isn't he?
Thank you!

Hi Kate,
The White Wolf is PL OK. I love this bit, "For here sit I, dipping my pen into the unfrozen ink, and, when a word will not come, looking up into the broad branches and listening to the birds till I forget my story. It is long since they left me; but I am full fed, and the ship floats pleasantly. After so much misery I am as one rocked on the bosom of God; and the pine resin has a pleasant smell."
Great reading, Kate!
Thank you and Happy Independence Day! :birthday:

Thank you, Amy! I'm really enjoying Q's stories. I too, loved that bit - it was a great traditional tale, but such a sad love story.

These are all so great, it's hard to choose... how about 5, 6 and 10? I'll claim those 3 sections.
