Sanved - fine now , all linked. Thank you :D
re your comment about resolution.
It is one of the considerations with cover making that sometimes an image that I would love to use just does not work at the smaller image sizes. Everyone has different ways of working but I find I need to start by working on an 800X800 canvas - others use 600X600 and even then when I reduce it to 300X300 - which is the size that displays at Internet Archive and the LV catalogue pages - I've made the title too small on the wrong colour or it is too dark or too light. And as this is what is viewed 90%? 95%? or more of the time, I try again.

Here's the cover for "Lorelei of the Red Mist" by Leigh Brackett and Ray Bradbury:

https://librivox.org/uploads/covers/Salvationist.zip

I noticed that Bradbury isn't linked as one of the two authors, even though the summary indicates that Brackett and Bradbury each wrote parts of the the story. The other LibriVox recording of this story credits both authors, so I think this one should as well.

Also, I noticed a couple of typos in the first sentence of the summary. The sentence currently reads "Written Published in Planet Stories in 1946, this The story itself is a great mix of Golden Age Sci Fi and Swords & Sorcery." I recommend removing the words "Written", "The", and "itself" to make the following: "Published in Planet Stories in 1946, this story is a great mix of Golden Age Sci Fi and Swords & Sorcery."

Pre-claims (claims on projects not yet cataloged) can only be made by the Book Coordinator or soloist, if it's a solo.

Please go here to claim cataloged projects: http://librivox.nl/claim/

You don't. If a BC/soloist wants to make the cover themselves, they can pre-claim. Everyone else must wait until the project is cataloged.

I apologize if my post wasn't clear. :)
