Hi, Lisa! Indeed I feel it would be a better fit in the Children Stories Collection, viewtopic.php?f=19&t=78191
A little bit of horror for the children :mrgreen:

Hi Weezer! Welcome to Librivox! I can't check the recordings just now, but it would really help me if you posted some more information about the stories you selected:
Title and author, text source URL, duration of recording and last but not least, how you'd like to be credited in the catalogue of Librivox. :D

I had a chance to listen to your recordings, Weezer. Such wonderful reading, full of expression, totally engaging. I lived the story through your reading!

"Keesh, son of Keesh" can be included in the collection, it has quite the horrific ending.
"Crowned with one Crest", even though contains the word 'ghost', I feel it lacks the supernatural element to be considered a ghost story. I feel it would fit better in the Short Story Collection here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=79286 with some changes in the filename. What do you think? If you do offer it there, you can point them to this post and mention it has been proof-listened by me, checked and PL OK, though they could listen to it again if they wanted, as I'm sure they'd greatly enjoy it! :D

For now, I have entered both in the Magic Window, until we figure it out.

Hi Rapunzelina,

I enjoyed reading Walter de la Mare's "Out of the Depths" for the last collection, so thought I'd do another of his weird tales for this one!

"The Tree" is brilliantly narrated and PL OK! Thank you, Rafe! :9:

"From the Dark" is perfectly read. It shows that you have a connection to the story.
If you decide to read more parts, you can use this text if it's easier to read, hopefully no typos: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Herbert_West:_Reanimator

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth, by Rhoda Broughton, 26:04

I read this one as well from a print copy of Victorian Ghost Stories, Ed Cox and Gilbert

I see there are several of her novels in Gutenberg--I wonder if they are as good as this story.

I think that’s a recent anthology from the 1990s? Hathitrust has the story in 1873’s “Tales for Christmas Eve” which would be Public Domain:

Hi, could I do HP Lovecrafts The shunned House? It's listed on project Gutenberg - I've just done my test recording and it's OK, so this will be my first proper go!

That's the key to the continued existence of Librivox! When we have fun, we come back for more :mrgreen:
Another great recording! Now entered into to Magic Window, and marked PL OK! :thumbs:

Thank you! That was helpful and I managed to find it in archive.org, which for me is a bit easier to navigate than hathitrust

The text is the same with the recorded audio, so everything is cool!

Her wikipedia article has a quote from Robert S. Hadji, saying that this was her cleverest story! It was quite chilling at the end, I got goose-bumps!
Thank you for your recording! Now added in the MW marked PL OK!
I will use the archive scan as text reference for our catalogue: https://archive.org/details/talesforchristma00brourich/page/n9/mode/2up

Yes, please! You can definitely do that for our collection! However, it will be quite a long recording. More than an hour final result, which might mean more than 4 hours of recording and editing work, depending on how flowing you read (I personally stumble quite a lot, have to do a lot of editing, that's why I don't record that much :mrgreen: )
Would you like to choose a short one as your first proper go? Just so that you don't fall in deep. But if you're a confident swimmer, then, yes, by all means! I will be looking forward to it! :D
