G.K. Chesterton's Newspaper Columns: The New Witness - November 1919 to April 1920 by G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/chesterton-new-witness-1919-1920-by-g-k-chesterton/

A collection of the newspaper columns/essays written by G.K. Chesterton for "The New Witness", under the heading "At the Sign of the World's End". This project compiles the articles included in the issues between November 21, 1919 to April 30, 1920. (Summary by Maria Therese)
    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://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=iau.31858045073149&view=1up&seq=7 The exact text link for each section is linked in the MW!
    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!

10, please. (I'll spare someone else the trouble. The text is a bit smudgy.)

Thanks, Kevin ~ all yours!

The last one is a tad smudged as well, but not as bad as that one, so I didn't think it was bad enough for a warning!

You'll know I'll be in for something in this, if there are some left, but I need to clear out a few other projects first.

Sounds good, Larry. This one may not move as fast as other Chesterton projects, as I do not believe the text is visible outside the US. Unfortunately I couldn't find it anywhere else....

Thank you, Kevin.

Just one little note. In the intro, I would take out the first instance of "The God in the Cellar" at 30 seconds. :-)

Thanks, Phil! There is one minor PL Note.

This is the last section, so it needs: :-)

At the end of the book, say (in addition):
"End of G.K. Chesterton's Newpaper Columns: The New Witness - 1919 to 1920, by G. K. Chesterton. "
