The response I got was that if it's a post-1924 publication, we can record it only if it's in gutenberg.org. They have a legal team that can clear and verify which works are out of copyright; we don't, so we rely on gutenberg.org. Otherwise, any pre-1925 publication is fine. And as of 1st January next year, it will be any pre-1926 publication (published in 1925 or earlier).
We won't be able to host "The Strange High House in the Mist" until 2027, I think.

Ok, after you mentioned it that's kind of what I figured. Thanks for checking and sorry to put you through the trouble.

Here's my submission:

The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allen Poe
Text source: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/2148/2148-h/2148-h.htm#chap2.15
MP3:https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/ghohor046_pitandthependulum_poe_vc_128kb.mp3 (47:30)
Hi entervinput - this was lovely to listen to, thank you for submitting it! I've marked it as PL ok, but there are a couple of tiny PL notes worth fixing if you can, but they don't ruin the recording.
I hear an echo/double voice at around 42:14
It's a little on the quiet side at 86db - if you're making an edit anyway, 87-91 is ideal, with a target of 89

Thank you for this - I love a haunted house story and this one is perfect.
One PL note - you've missed the title and author name which should come after 'read by...' from the intro. It's around 00:19
If you're making that edit anyway, you're a tiny bit on the quiet side too - just under the 87-91 range at 86.8. I wouldn't have flagged it if I wasn't giving another note so don't worry too much, but the closer you can get to 89, the better.

Oh no! Sending strength and good Mac vibes your way!

Thanks for the cheering on, Rapunzelina & Alix! :9:
My latest Mac woes are unexpectedly and suddenly neutralized; must have been the good vibes you spirited my way.
Stay tuned for Parts II & III of "TIofJ" -- vintage Blackwood, that I am still shocked about not even having heard of, before a few months ago.

Thank you, alixsquish, for your kinds words and the feedback!

I fixed the part at 42:14, and the file is a little louder too. The MP3 URL with the new version is the same as before.
