There is a short story by M. R. James, "Number Thirteen," in Ghost Stories of an Antiquary:
http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/8486/pg8486-images.html
It's about a mysterious room in a hotel in old Viborg.
Something horrible happened long ago, and the room may or may not actually be there.
The protagonist may be staying in #13, but sometimes #13 disappears and it switches to #14, and back again, etc...
All ghostly happenings.
I could do this as selection #13 in the list.
...LJBI
Ummm... this has nothing to do with the number 14, aside from a bit of the plot.

Let's try to keep on theme as much as possible - which is the number 14. And this usually means having the number 14 in the title of the story/poem/selection/chapter. This isn't a project to find a selection that matches a section number, or find something by an author that lived in the 1400s... or... or...

I’ll be glad to be the DPL for this project. I did it for the 13th Anniversary.
That's wonderful! Thank you. No one has offered to MC, however. I hope that comes soon.
E agora, José?

One way of tracking claims prior to getting a MW is to do it manually in your second post. It’s easy enough to set up, just annoying to update - makes us appreciate the MW!

Like this:

Section 1 - 1914 poem, Robert Brooke, read by x
Section 2 - 14 saints, unknown author, read by y

I agree with Tricia that a story title “Number 13” would have been better for last year and doesn’t quite match for this year!

I don't disagree, but it all seems a bit pointless without an MC.

Honestly, I think it's better to wait for an MC to take claims. In other words, no claiming until you get an MC.

(I'm full up on MC projects - in fact, I'm overfull. So I'm not taking on any new projects right now. Tell some folks I'm MC'ing to finish off their projects to free up some space, will you? ;))

Oh ye of little faith! There will be an MC at some point, and if you have 20 claims by then it is easier to have them all in one spot than to go back through the thread to find them all. It’s not so critical in a collection I guess, but it avoids duplication.

I think this project will move fast, so that’s how I’d do it, but I’m not the BC. The other way is just to ask everyone to wait and not do anything until the MC provides the MW. Easier, definitely, but I think people like to strike while the iron is hot. It’s also important IMHO, if the topic is ambiguous and you may need to turn down some suggestions while accepting others.

I'm talking about any and all people for whom I have MC projects. If the shoe fits... :twisted:

My backup plan is to have the collection focus on Christmas as celebrated in the 14th Century.

Yay! I love these collections!

I am looking for a suitable New York Times archive article, as I had good luck with 13 last year.

In the meantime, here's a nice tidbit for anyone else interested:

A Blind Esperantist’s Trip to Finland and Sweden, to attend The Fourteenth Esperanto Congress and after.
By W. Percy Merrick

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43113

(Despite the lengthy title, it's only article length, coming in at 45 KB for the HTML file on Project Gutenberg!

Thank you!

I wonder if there are any Esperanto recordings on LibriVox. There must be. (Easy enough for me to look, I suppose.)

Hi Kevin,
I'll MC this. Your MW is up and DPL added. Over to Short Works.
Good luck!
