Odes and Sonnets by Clark Ashton Smith (1893 - 1961).

Clark Ashton Smith, considered one of the big three of Weird Tales, (the famous pulp fiction magazine), was a romantic-style poet, contributor to the Cthulhu Mythos and a literary friend of H.P Lovecraft. As a poet, he was considered one of the last great West Coast Romantics.
Published in 1918, prefaced by his mentor George Sterling and illustrated with Decadent movement-inspired embellishments by Florence Lundborg, this volume, this volume contains material republished from his 1912 collection and later included in his 1922 poetry compilation. (Mary Kay)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/odes-and-sonnets-by-clark-ashton-smith/

Volunteers outside the USA: C.A. Smith died in 1961. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe and Australia, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
    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!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100389337
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!


      Magic Window:



      BC Admin ============================================
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Poem Title from Odes and Sonnets by Clark Ashton Smith
      • "Read for LibriVox.org by [your name]" or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.[/i]

      • Then read the poem

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Poem. This recording is in the public domain.]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Odes and Sonnets, by Clark Ashton Smith. "

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      odessonnets_##_smith_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. odessonnets_01_smith_128kb.mp3)

      ID3 tags will be filled at the cataloguing stage.
