Wow, Barbara! H.G. Wells! Have any anecdotes?
My ears were too young, Philip! But I gathered that what Mencken scathingly refers to as the "intellectualized adulteries" in Wells's fiction were actual and drawn from life. :wink:

Best,

Barbara

Thank you for Section 3, Linda! It is in the MW and ready for PL.

...

Section 3 is PL OK and, thanks to Linda and Mencken, I don't think I'll be attempting any Arnold Bennett in a hurry.

Best,

Barbara

Thank you Shasta. PL OK. Librivoxing is an education. I hadn't heard of Sudermann till this year when he popped up in one of my solos and here he pops up again...

Best,

Barbara

I will get to Chapter 9 after you tell me how George Ade's last name is to be pronounced. Will it be as in Aid or Add?

Meanwhile I volunteer for Chapters 15 & 16

Shasta:

"Aid" is the one most commonly used. Chapter 15 & 16 are yours.

Many thanks,

Oh no it's not, Philip :!: Somehow Section 16 got entered in the MW in place of Section 12 (as well as in its own place). So I've marked Section 12 "PL Notes". I did find it, as Linda had given a link in her forum post.

Best,

Barbara

Great Shasta, except that the opening silence needs to be longer - it should be 0.5 to 1 second in all - so I've marked it "PL notes". When you've added the extra silence, that can can be added to the length.

Best,

Barbara
