The Strange Story Book by Mrs. Lang (1851 - 1933).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-strange-story-book-by-leonora-blanche-lang/
A collection of stories compiled by the widow of the renowned children's short-story collector, Andrew Lang. She describes this as the final installment of his series of fairy stories and includes some of those stories he had not included in other collections. In the preface, she pays tribute to her husband, saying he liked old things more than new, he loved all beasts' because they were beasts', fairies, cricket and dancing. He longed to visit far away places, but hated to travel. But most of all he befriended children wherever he went and they shared stories with him. Only his own children mocked him. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37396
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! 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.

Here is the Preface: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/strangestorybook_01_lang_128kb.mp3

I have recorded one other thing for Librivox, but since I do not know if they will get to it first, if I have not been entered in the catalog, please identify me as Kalyn Heminger. Thank you.

Thank you. I have added you to the catalog.
How long is your file please, in minutes and seconds (mm:ss)?
Also, if there are edits, please upload your file as _00_, as _01_ is for the first story, not the preface. If there are no edits, I can change the file name.

Section 0 PL notes:

The reading of section 0 is fine, but it starts at six seconds which gives a much longer silence than is desirable at the beginning. Could you snip that down to a second or so? Then I'll be able to mark the section PL OK.
