:shock: seems like there was another rush-hour while I was sleeping

all right, so I forget nobody, let's start from the beginning:

However, still plenty interesting ones to choose from. If you don't mind, I'd like to read:
26 - Death of Socrates
51, 52 on Hannibal
55 - Spartacus
73 - Dickens in Pompeii.
thank you, Ava. They're all yours. :)

Dickens was in Pompeii...that sounds interesting.

I'll take 48 and 72, to start. Still looking at the drama roles available.

Edit: and 74, please. :)

I'd be happy to read Iphigenia. And I'll read Heraclitus as well. And I'm done for now. :)
thank you Devorah for taking one of the philosophers :9: the parts are all very funny, I find. It would actually be cool to track down the whole play and do it.

And for details on how to read the voice credits, look here: viewtopic.php?p=1499738#p1499738

I'll sign you up for them all.

Thanks, but I don't want to hog all the good roles :D. How about I take Aeschylus in 23, Fourth Citizen in 62, and First Customer in 33.

I can leave Iphigenia for someone else to shine.
thanks for relinquishing Iphigenia to Devorah, but you didn't have to feel like you would "hog" anything, TJ. :)

Here's Diogenes, the Feral Philosopher, the character's voice-characterisation being informed by Sandra's Second Customer preceding line: "I'm afraid of him, he looks so savage and sulky; perhaps he'll bark if I go near him, or even bite me, I shouldn't wonder."

Happy to pick up the rest of the "historical notes" again.
They are sections 15, 19, 27, 32, 36, 44, 49, 63, 68, 75, 83, & 88. If that's too many to claim at once, just give me as many as you think is reasonable. :)
oh, hey Jo :) great to have you with us again. The historical notes are very short sections, so I don't mind if you take this bunch. I know you won't be overburdened by it.

thanks

Sonia

I would like to record
26 The Death of Socrates
and
46 How Cininnatus saved the counsul, please. :)
thank you, Angelique, for taking part in this book as well :)

I'll happily assign you Section 46, but 26 had been claimed by Availle a bit before your claim, so assigned that section to her. Sorry about that.

oho, our first Philosopher has arrived. Thank you, Chris, I'm really looking forward to that one. But first: breakfast. I fear I need it for Diogenes :lol:

and that's 48 % claimed in less than 24 hours 8-) thank you all so much for your interest and support.

I think we can safely move it over to Readers Wanted: Short Works now.

Cheers,

all right, I had a listen to Diogenes. :shock: It's the Colonel all over again. He sounds like he has rabies or some such :lol: No wonder the customer is afraid of him. It's not really the picture we nowadays have of our ordinary philosopher but then again, Diogenes wasn't ordinary, he was living in a vat after all :mrgreen: if rumour is to be believed.

Well growled, Chris, thank you. No lines missing, all PL ok. You're our first submission for this project. :thumbs:

yay, Jim, I'm happy to have you in this book as well. 8-) And thanks for claiming so many sections.

I suppose you wouldn't mind PLing my sections this time again ?

As for the mini drama, I remember you offered to take a small role as well. So could I propose the philosopher Democritus for you ? He only appears on page 216 with a few lines and seems a bit of mean cynic. Let me know if that is ok with you :)

thanks for relinquishing Iphigenia to Devorah, but you didn't have to feel like you would "hog" anything, TJ. :)

Aww, thanks. Don't want to get ahead of myself -- I still have a ton of editing to finish. :D

Anyway, I'm a big fan of Devorah's voice art... :clap: I'm also a big fan of your acting/editing/PLing skills, Sonia! :clap:
