Short Mystery and Suspense Collection 011 by Various ( - ).

This collection is for any short mystery 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 1925 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 1925.

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) .

  • There is no need to pre-claim

The Torture of Hope

Please correct the intro... you have things in the wrong order 8-) "Title of Work], by [Author Name]. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

Please be careful with file names. The correct format is always in the first post. sms011_shorttitleinoneword_readersinitials_128kb.mp3
We don't want it to start with 'the' or 'a' or similar, and there should be no capitals or underscores.

Hi Lynette,
I knew I'd show signs of rust somewhere, thank you for your patience. As always, rescue came in the form of one of Phil Chenevert's videos.

8-) I learned all I know from dear Phil.
Just so you know, in collections, section numbers are redundant 8-)
