The History Of The Devil by Daniel Defoe (1660 - 1731).

This book is divided into two parts: first, the history of the devil from his fall from heaven up to the time the book was written and second about his private conduct. Partly funny, partly religious, and partly critical of what was written before, the book is purely delightful to read. This is a less known work by the author of Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders. ( Stav Nisser.)
    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://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/31053
    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.

This looks like a great project. I hope it goes forward and that I can take part.

How would you want us to handle instances such as "d__m"? It seems to me that our reading "damn" would actually be less upsetting than using "blank." (Imagine "'Blank' you.")

Hay, glad to see you here. Be as involved as you want, all is well. I cannot change the text unless there are clear typos. So if we have to read d__m so be it. It would be "d" a second of silence and then "m". There is a rule against this unless of course one of the edmens contradicts me in which case I would adhear to them.

May I start with the Preface (if you're using it) and the first chapter?

I gave the preface a separate file but if you want to unite it with the first chapter it's fine by me.

Kevin, it doesn't really matter to me if you do them separately or no. Just let e know so that I delete a section from the mw once it is up.
Elsie, would love to have you as dpl.

Chapter One all ready.

This is hilarious material. (I'm a bit embarrassed that I had not already read it.)

Back soon with MW. All done.
As to D--m, most readers just read damn , but it is up to you . My personal view , saying d dash m just adds an emphasis to it that the writer did not intend
