Incredible Adventures by Algernon Blackwood (1869 - 1951).


"Incredible Adventures" is a collection of 5 stories showing Blackwoods great descriptive skills and ability to build atmosphere that is sure to trap ones attention again and again. These stories include wild rites on nocturnal hills, sinister and terrible aspects lurking in country houses……….. Some of the stories are somewhere between this world and half-remembered dreams. They are all about atmosphere, tension which ebbs and flows pulling ones attention in and then letting it go. ( Patrick79)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Let me know if anything needs fixing. Btw, my initials just needed to be after the book title at the very top of the form (i.e. only once).

Hi Dave

Fancy a trip to the Alps, just click on the link ….

The Regeneration of Lord Ernie Part 1 https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/incredibleadventures_01.1_blackwood_128kb_.mp3 Time 23m 03s

How do I edit the text on the MW page, it seems to be different. Also can't seem to add reader name in added sections.

Thanks
PAtrick

I just added you as the reader for the extra sections. Was there something else you wanted to change?

Just open the MW (click on BC Admin) and then click on the box you wish to edit. Some boxes have a save button. The title column doesn't (I think).

At the very top of the page is an edit button [a pencil in a box icon] for your first post. If you change the book description, let me know as the copy used in cataloguing is behind the scenes and only I can change it.

Edit: I'm a slow typist!

In the intro you give the book title as "5 Stories from Incredible Adventures" not "Incredible Adventures."

In the file name the section number should be used (01 in this case). When you upload this file with the correct book title change the ## in the file name to 01.

Hi Dave

Have uploaded new file.

I have changed the 01 but in the magic window it only shows 1. Am I doing it right. Perhaps you can do the first one and I can follow.

Thanks
Patrick
