PERKINS, THE FAKEER: A Travesty on Reincarnation by Edward S. Van Zile (1863 - 1931).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/perkins-the-fakeer-by-edward-s-van-zile/
As the title suggests we are treated to three humourous and curious psychical transpositions in the cases of "When Reginald was Caroline," "How Chopin came to Remsen," and "Clarissa's troublesome baby" . If you're looking for a break from more serious fare you can count on this one to amuse and entertain you.
( Celine Major)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55123
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of PERKINS, THE FAKEER: A Travesty on Reincarnation. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "PERKINS, THE FAKEER: A Travesty on Reincarnation, by Edward S. Van Zile. [Chapter]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of PERKINS, THE FAKEER: A Travesty on Reincarnation by Edward S. Van Zile. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    .
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      .
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of PERKINS, THE FAKEER: A Travesty on Reincarnation, by Edward S. Van Zile. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename perkinsthefakeer_##_vanzile_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. perkinsthefakeer_01_vanzile_128kb.mp3)
    .
  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader

I've divided the book in 3 parts and adjusted the intros to reflect the 3 separate stories. Hope you agree. :-)

This one is lots of fun. Enjoy!!!
