The second Henry Lawson DR has been launched within this thread. (I've changed the internal heading over to "Dramatic Selections from Henry Lawson's Short Stories", but not the external heading such as is seen in the list of forum threads.

This DR is called "The Hairy Man", which is a sort of Bigfoot/Sasquatch which was always said to inhabit the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. In this story, he comes calling on some hung-over cemetery diggers...


Cheers,
Chris

Thanks, Alan!

With a name like "Jones", it occurs to me that Cymru is barely a cricket-ball's throw from Bristol. :wink:

Cheers,
Chris

It looks like things are fairly well put together and under way here, so if you have no objections, I'll move us to the drama forum.

Also, take note that I changed the file name in the MW for the completed stories to conform to the naming format we use for other projects. :thumbs: Please use this format going forward.

Chris,

Even though I have never touched a drop of liquor, (I know, not very Aussie :wink: ), I would like to try the Reformed Drunkard.

Thanks,

Wayne

Edit: After reading Devorah's post above, what is the correct file name format?

Hi Wayne! Reformed Drunkard it is.

Devorah was referring to the final filename for the assembled short story once all the parts are put together. The file names for the various parts pre-assembly are not so critical, though obviously it helps if they are meaningfully named.

For the reformed drunkard, the file name is: henrylawsondramreads_reformeddrunkard_128kb.mp3

Cheers,
Chris
