Lucian's Dialogues Volume 2: The Dialogues of the Sea-Gods by Lucian of Samosata (c. 125 - c. 180). Translated by Howard Williams (1837 - 1931)

The Dialogues of the Sea-Gods are 15 miniature dialogues mocking the Homeric conception of the Greek gods, originally written in Attic Greek by Syrian author Lucian of Samosata. Almost 1900 years old, these dialogues still retain a lot of their original humor and wit. ( Foon)

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/dialoguesnamelyd00luci
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)!

Oh, I had been looking this and would love to read for Zeus! Just feeling so god-like 8-)
I've got a lot of DPL to do right now, but I'd be glad to help with editing. Not too complicated for these.

Hey Larry,

Editing would be great, are you interested in being the editor for all of them or only some?

Zeus isn't in this volume, I'm afraid :hmm: We have the sea-gods here. But maybe I can interest you in Poseidon? :D

Yep, I meant Poseidon, ruler and master of the sea! 8-)

Well, sure, why not edit them all?
As long as they don'e all come in on the same day, I'll be fine. :lol:
