Thank you all. I'll sort out file names later when necessary.
I am not in a position to PL until next week - if anyone wishes to pl one or 2 that would be fine, just don't worry about file names.

Both have an incorrect bit rate as mentioned in the poetry [roject - you need to fix it and upload again with the same file name.

Here's one from me:


Title: Second Landing
Author: Floyd Wallace
Audio link: https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/CSWC20_secondlanding_floyd_jef_128kb.mp3
Text link: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24958
Length: 16:37

Note: I didn’t read the story descriptor (“A gentle fancy for the Christmas Season—an oft-told tale with a wistful twistful of Something that left the Earth with a wing and a prayer”) because it seemed too much to add to the title and would be awkward after the Librivox info. If you would like me to include it - where should I put it?

Jennifer

nice story :D PL OK - the description could have been read as part of the story I think, it is rather nice but not essential .

There is a repeat at 10:50 -:" Everyone knows" else it is all fine.
