The Dream Doctor by Arthur B. Reeve (1880 - 1936)
The Dream Doctor is a compilation of detective stories featuring Professor Craig Kennedy, a Sherlock-like character who uses his scientific acumen to solve mysteries. A newspaper reporter, Walter Jameson, works with him to get to the bottom of things. The Craig Kennedy stories appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine in the early 1900s. Summary by A. Gramour
This is an abandoned solo project, now open to the group.
    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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5054
    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.

Hi,
I'll MC this for you. Sarah is added as DPL. I will move you to Going Solo later today.
I read this book a while ago. It has an intriguing title. The magic window is up. I will PM you instructions on accessing and using it.
Cheers,
Amy

Hey Amy,
Sorry for not being active here. It's so nice to meet you and I'm happy to work with you. Have you read his other books? This going to be the first book that I read by Reeve.

About Brian, his on a two-week business trip. I think he will be back safely on Thursday, October 24.

Hi Sarah,
It is nice to work with you, too. I haven't read any of his others. Thanks for letting me know about Brian's trip. I am glad that he is not having a problem with anything.
Cheers!

Hey Amy,

I have "The Silent Bullet" on my TBR list. Do you like reading books in order? Maybe I can find time to read it before Brian starts with this (which is book 3 according to Goodreads) :hmm:.

Hi Sarah,
I do like to. Even if the stories aren't related you can see how the author improves or changes.
Have a good day!
Amy

Hello again,
Same here but sometimes I don't read in order. I'm recording the 11th book of Fleming Stone by Carolyn Wells. And it's the first book that I've read by her. And there is a high chance that I'll read this book first before 1 & 2. Because I'm reading about 2 mystery Series in order this year (I've to wait for my turn to get the book, I borrow them from Openlibrary.org).
Have an AWESOME day!

I have only seen my private messages up until now. I had completely neglected the messages in this forum :( .

Anyway, I'm starting now, at long last. I hope the book has not already been done by now; no need to double efforts of others...

Okay. This project is bookmarked now and I changed my notification settings to email me for any changes to a "bookmarked" subject so I shouldn't miss further messages...
