Short Mystery and Suspense Collection 012, 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) . (Summary by )
There is no need to pre-claim
New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

You may select any Public Domain text. If you are uncertain as to copyright status, please ask.

Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

The Vanishing Prince
Repeated Passage 4:52-9:16

Skipped passage :"But here again he was immediately fortunate, yet ultimately unfortunate,"....“I saw some queer-looking people leaving as I came in,”

Pleaseadd "by G.K. Chesterton" at the end.

Please slow down when reading... listeners need to process what you are saying. With audiobooks, slower is better.

The Blue Cross

From 13:00-13:40 there is a loud background noise. I'm not sure noise cleaning would help, so it would be best to re-record that passage.

For the outro, it sounds like you say "J.K. Chesterton". It should be "G.K. Chesterton". His name was Gilbert Keith.


For future recordings, please slow down! For audiobooks, slower is better so the listener can process one sentence before you start the next. As it is, the effect is somewhat garbled.

Hi Lynnet

I wish to contribute here by reading a story. But since no source link is given I don't know how to pick up one. Is there any suggestion in this regard?

Readers find their own public domain stories. Project Gutenberg bookshelves are a good starting point. They have many periodicals listed. You can also look at short story collections by single authors.
