Love Stories Volume 3.
Here are 20 more love stories under an hour each, covering all kinds of experiences involving romance or other kinds of love resulting in heartbreak or happiness -- where the heart overflows with passion, pride, emotion or wonder. ( ~ Michele Fry)
• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/love-stories-volume-3-by-various/
  1. There is no need to preclaim. Just record and submit a story (no poems please) with the requested information (see green text below).
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Once your story is submitted, please be on the lookout for your Proof Listeners notes, which if changes are required must be attended to for your story to be included in the catalog.
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.[/b]

    Level of prooflistening: standard (I will follow along with the text.)
    Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ for what Standard means!

    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!

Is this the same author? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valery_Bryusov
Yep, that's the guy. Looks like he wrote HIS stories between translating every other author's works under the sun. It appears in his collection of short stories: "THE REPUBLIC OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS". Might be some other stories there for other people to check out.

Coincidentally, I submitted another story of his in the Dreams Collection 2 thread a few days ago.

I saw that, Scarbro. I was wondering if Bill found his story via your link. That's a good way to discover things.

Maybe it's a sign!!!!! Well, both of you, is there another Love story, or maybe a Dreams story, or maybe something about Hobbies in there that would be another interesting listen?

PL Notes For Herself or For Another

Some vacation!

9:14 Passer, and "Je ne vous connais pas." Pronounce "pass-'ay" and "cone-ay 'pa" (you said you want to pronounce your French correctly)
18:45 all of Basmanof's most holy recollections. most is missing (which seems important here for the intensity intended)
20:51 How can I know where you are real? you say who
