I spent a bit of time researching public domain websites yesterday, though the link you had mentioned is not one that I recall seeing. I will look into that perhaps tomorrow or at least by the end of this week. I also plan on recording and posting the story I had mentioned from Bartleby's by the end of this week.
I think it is a shame to waste my Krakatoa recording, same as you. If I upload it to Archive.org is it a process similar to uploading materials on LV?
I will not be reading any of Hopkins work from the journal so please do read whichever you choose & rest assured that I am okay with that.

I found an item that I would like to record for this thread. I am hoping you can let me know if indeed it is an item that will work so I am posting the link below. Please do let me know, at your convenience. Thank you.
Glad to see you back, and also glad we can be sure what you've chosen this time is in the Public Domain! Yes, Alden's "An Unnecessary Invention" is ok to read. You can read it from Bartleby. I've also found an actual public domain source on archive. org, which is the source I'll use for the LibriVox catalog. https://archive.org/details/domesticexplosiv00alde, p. 146 ff. Interestingly, Alden's book of humorous essays (originally from the NY Times, according to the preface) went by several titles, The Comic Liar just being one of them. The title of the 1877 copy of the book in archive. org is titled "Domestic Explosives and Other Sixth Column Fancies!"
Your Krakatoa read it still on my mind. It's a shame to waste it; perhaps you could upload to archive.org? If you still don't think you want to read Hopkins' sunset descriptions in the journal Nature yourself, would you mind if I read one of them? I'm interested in painting, and his description of the sunset colors is most painterly!
