Women who cheat on their husbands don't seem to do well in the 1920's, especially in this issue of Weird Tales.

Thanks
Dale

Whoa! That’s the very next story after the one I just sent in above yours. Weird indeed!

Thank you, Dale! A repetition at 7:55 and 8:05 of a few lines "And that had ended the episode [...]"
Around 11:18, I think a word is missing, here in bold "dismissing her feeling of uneasiness"

Now that story has some parts that might not be publishable today... He says at some point "I have acted pretty white up to now", I wonder if it has any racist connotations, him having been in Africa and all... Or is it a phrase to mean "act decently" without any racial regard?

Good Morning:

Nice catch. My OCR program missed a word. I have made both corrections and reloaded the file.

Hi:

And "Pretty white of you" hasn't been an acceptable phrase since I was in school (maybe 50 years ago.)

I usually enter the front page link in the project's catalogue page. But it's nice to have the direct link when ready to pl :mrgreen:

Thank you so much for your recording of "The Secret of Kralitz", Rick! Exceptional narration :thumbs:

(you can upload with the same name, the link will lead to the last uploaded file; all previous files with the same name are automatically renamed and can still be found in the server; no overwriting occurs, something of a safety net in case of wrongly uploaded files )

Hello! I'd like to submit a story:

The Damned Thing by Ambrose Bierce

Welcome to the Ghost and Horror Collection, Christine! Thank you for your contribution! Bierce's stories are always welcome here :mrgreen: And you did a fine job reading it!
I will amplify your file's volume a bit before cataloguing, to match the rest of the recordings in the collection. (I will make a note of it in the Magic Window, so I won't forget). I get the volume at around 85dB, as measured by the Checker. I don't know how familiar you are with editing. There are spikes in the waveform that will not allow further amplification with the Amplify effect in Audacity, but we can amplify using the Compression effect instead.
