Short Story Collection Vol 083 by Various ( - ).



All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/short-story-collection-vol-083-by-various/

This collection is for any short story in the English Language in the public domain, preferably less than 60 minutes. You are welcome to contribute as many as you wish, and there is no need to "sign-up" before recording as long as the work is clearly in the public domain.

Please ask here if the story was published after 1923 or if you are unsure for any other reason about its public domain status. Note that translations attract their own new copyright and must also have been published before 1923.

Multiple versions are always welcome, so you can record a story that has been recorded before. (If the same stories are submitted twice in the same collection, we will carry the second version over to the next collection) .

You may prefer to submit your recording to one of the other more specialized short story collections. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. There is no need to pre-claim

      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!

Thanks

PS

Did you notice that the example above says (e.g. ss082_greatstory_lt_128kb.mp3)
For someone who is lazy, and just cuts and pastes, this might be a problem.

Either the MC or BC can add you. Only the MC can edit an entry once you’re in though. I wear both hats in this project!
