Here's a little essay on the stories and poetry about a few of the main sewers/underground rivers in Victorian London.

The parent book is an investigation of the mechanism of sewers, water and gas supply in the capital. Chapter Two, which I have recorded, is titled "Gossip". I think this book is going to be my next solo; it's fascinating!

Underground London
Author: John Hollingshead - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hollingshead
This edition published in 1862

The text is available here: https://www.google.com/books/edition/Underground_London/ghIHAAAAQAAJ

Hi Peter, Thanks for this! :D Sounds like fun! Craig will PL, and I'll set aside some time this afternoon to take a listen myself.

Thanks Peter for the interesting history of a river that's also called a ditch rather than a sewer. It seems to have caught the attention of numerous people both living and dead.

Hello,
Here is another contribution:
Author: Fredrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
Title: The Antichrist
URL to text: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/19322/19322-h/19322-h.htm
Audio recording ready for PL'ing: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf076_theantichrist_nietzsche_cjph_128kb.mp3
Time: 18:12

Is it okay to record this piece as the author died in 1900, though the translator died in 1956? If it is not, please ignore this contribution, I will remove it if this is the case.

Kind regards,
Chad
Hi Chad, Thank you for recording this selection by Nietzsche, translated by H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), which is available on Gutenberg. Gutenberg certifies that, for citizens of the United States, this work is in the public domain. Here is a good summary of U.S. copyright law from the U.S. Library of Congress blog: https://blogs.loc.gov/copyright/2019/01/publicdomain/

Gutenberg also states that persons living outside the United States must abide by the laws of the country where they live:
"The copyright laws of the place where you are located also govern
what you can do with this work. Copyright laws in most countries are in
a constant state of change. If you are outside the United States, check
the laws of your country in addition to the terms of this agreement
before downloading, copying, displaying, performing, distributing or
creating derivative works based on this work or any other Project
Gutenberg-tm work. The Foundation makes no representations concerning
the copyright status of any work in any country outside the United
States."

You, if I remember correctly from what you state on some of your recordings, reside in Northern Ireland, which has different copyright laws than the United States. Here is a reference source on UK Copyright Law: https://copyrightservice.co.uk/copyright/uk_law_summary. This source states that

"For literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works
70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last remaining author of the work dies, or the work is made available to the public, by authorized performance, broadcast, exhibition, etc."


I am not a lawyer, but my lay person's conclusion is that it would not be technically legal for someone living in the UK to record this selection for LibriVox at this time. To be doubly sure, I will run your question by our metacoordinator, knotyouraveragejo. For the present, I am putting your contribution "on hold."
Chad, Jo has agreed with my determination that your selection cannot be accepted for LibriVox because it is not in the public domain where you live. As I always say in my first post for each volume, please feel free to ask here in the thread about the PD status of anything you are considering recording for LibriVox before you begin recording!

If you have any doubts about the public domain status of anything you want to read for the collection, please feel free to post the source along with your query in the thread, and I will be glad to help you! Thanks!

Hi Sue and Craig,

Here is something a little different -

Poisons Used by Ancient Races

This is an excerpt from Chapter 1 of "Poison Mysteries in History, Romance and Crime" by C. J. S. Thompson (©1923), pages 15 through the top of page 23.

Hi Jo, Thanks for this! :) Are you thinking of taking up writing mysteries, as well as reading them for LibriVox? :mrgreen: I was rather taken with the watermelon idea -- cutting the melon with a knife poisoned only on one side....

Ha! While writing a mystery novel would certainly help pass the time, I think I will stick to reading them for now. :wink: I agree though that one has to admire the ingenuity of the watermelon and the poisoned knife!

Hi Sue,

I am a bit of a quandry. I have found a first-hand story of the Acadians and the tail of Evangeline that I would love to read. The quandry is that it is about 11,600 words long, and at may 'average' of about 150 words per minute, it come to a smidge over 77 minutes. I think/know that would be too long for this collection. Where else would it fit? Maybe as a short 'solo' reading, it is in chapters. Any thoughts?

Edit: Or would it be possible to break it up into two 'sections'?

Hi Wayne, As long as your selection is nonfiction and PD, it would be fine for the SNF collection. A single recording needs to stay under 74 minutes, so, rather than worrying whether you are going to run over the time limit, I think you would be better off planning to read it in two parts. Two-part recordings count as one selection (of the two allowed per person), which seems to be making them quite popular as of late! Looking forward to hearing what you have chosen! :)
