The Wyvern Mystery by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814 - 1873).

A classic with a smidgen of romance, a pinch of gothic, and a dash of mystery, are you interested yet? When young Alice Maybell’s father dies she is taken in by Squire Fairfield, a widower with two handsome young sons, Charles and Harry. As Alice grows into a lovely young woman she attracts the attentions of more than one admirer, not all welcome. She marries the man she loves whilst fleeing the home she grew up in. However, the blissful happiness that follows is short-lived. She finds herself pulled into the middle of the secrets of her husbands' family’s past. No one is quite what they seem, and there are many twists along the way. What is this dark secret in her husband’s past? Who - or what - is the malignant presence that haunts Carwell Grange? Join us as we answer these questions in ‘The Wyvern Mystery’ ( fiddlesticks)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/wyvernmysteryan00fanugoog
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Yay! So excited to work with you :D

I really could not decide if I wanted to or not :roll: so I thought if no one volunteers while it is on the launch pad I will pl it.
I have the time and inclination to, but I also kind of want to listen to the whole thing in order and I don't usually for a quite a while after pling a group project.

I could DPL it for you, if you still are interested in hearing it in order and not having to DLP it yourself. This is one of the books that has been on my "to read" list for a long time.
I have had a lot of real life work the last few weeks. Please bear with me as I may take a little longer to PL or respond. I'll still get to everything as soon as possible. :D
