Stories Weird and Wonderful by Joyce Emmerson Muddock (1843 - 1934).

Coming Soon! ( )
    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://archive.org/details/02175853.1919.emory.edu
    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!

Ooh this looks like fun! Could I take the first story (section 1)?

Colleen

PS Just noticed that the book was scanned from the Robert Woodruff Library at Emory University in Atlanta, my grad school alma mater....I spent a LOT of time in that library!

Hello, Ann,
May I claim section 15, A Night with the Dead, please?

The start of the Intro mentions "Story 15", the end of the Intro mention "Chapter 15" and the Outro "End of Story 15" ... should I make them all "Story 15 or are you happy as it is?

I have been working rather slowly on changed "Chapter" to "Story," so I prefer "Story." Thank you for finding the one I missed! Section 15 is yours, thanks Peter!

No, no, not I!

She has a very similar style to M.R. James; I wonder if James knew these stories.
