Short Story Collection 94 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 1924 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 1924.

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. Please note that this collection is intended for an adult audience. ( ) ( )
  • There is no need to pre-claim

Beside Schopenhauer's Corpse
by Guy de Maupassant (1850 - 1893)

Time: 11:45

Various translators are listed for the book as a whole, not sure which to credit for this story in particular.

Was debating whether to submit this here or over in the Ghost / Horror collection - it does get a bit ghosty for a bit, but I feel like it's better suited here overall. If you disagree, I'm happy to adjust accordingly and submit it there instead.

Thanks!

Not sure I understand what you mean - that Gutenberg link is the text that I read from.

Are you referring to my note about the translation? Sorry if I wasn't clear. I just wasn't sure which of the various translators listed I should credit with this story specifically. The text doesn't specify who worked on what, just provides a list of translators for the collection as a whole.

Although, I'm realizing now that I've used this same text for other the other Maupassant stories I've recorded and wasn't asked to credit a translator at all, so perhaps I'm just overthinking this?

Gotcha... in collections, there is only space for one name. Regular projects, you can name up to... I think... 12

(This is a short story at the end of a longer story. Probably filler, but I think it is much better than the longer ones.)

Thanks

I would like to read Jack London's "The Mexican"

"the Mexican" isn't listed here, so how can I add it to the list of the short stories and overall, what's the procedure like?

Thanks, and I can't wait to do it.

Go ahead and record it, and submit it here... the file naming protocol is different from "regular" projects and is stated in the first post. I ask for other information at the same time, but you have provided most of it already :mrgreen:
I add stories to the MW as they come in, but if we get to 20, I will close the collection and open the next one. Readers are welcome to read any Public Domain short story (in English) that is under about an hour long.
