Thanks Amy. Typo on my pseudonym. Should be John W. Michaels.
Hi Mike,
We have it as John W. Michaels in the catalog. That will be your name automatically now for anything you do in Librivox. One way to check is by searching for yourself in the catalog.

Good thing it wasn't much longer, since the character was giving me o sore throat.

Take care,
Mike

Here's a short story that I'm contributing as my part of the "April Challenge" to record in a genre we haven't tried before. I've never read much sci-fi, but I really enjoyed this little tale of a man and his robot.

o The story title - Beside Still Waters
o The author’s name - Robert Scheckley
o The URL displayed by the LibriVox Uploader - https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/ssf062_besidestillwaters_sheckley_mk_128kb.mp3
o The URL for the online version of the text - http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/29446
o The duration of the recording - 10:40
Hi Maria,
I am glad you picked this collection. These stories really can be a lot of fun.
I will PL soon.
Thanks!
Amy :D

Just uploaded:
The Gun by Philip K. Dick

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/ssf062_gun_philipkdick_tr_128kb.mp3

PG URL:
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/29132

Recording duration: 32:51

It took me multiple attempts on two different browsers (Firefox and Safari) to get the upload to complete. Kept getting timeout errors. Finally succeeded with Safari - after I shut down my VPN - somethong I almost never do. Don't know if it's at my end or yours. I wonder what will happen when I try to send a big file...
