I notice that the listing for author Arthur Stringer reports that there is a book in progress, a status that has been unchanged for well over a year:

https://librivox.org/search?q=arthur%20stringer&search_form=advanced

I'm not able to find any trace of an "in progress" Stringer project in the forum.

I suspect that this is an error.

The case where this occurs is when there's a compilation project (such as short stories, etc.) from multiple sources and authors. The project will show as in progress, but you can't get to the project from the author page.

I don't know if there's a compilation project that has been in the works for over a year, and a forum search on "Arthur Stringer" only brings up the completed book. So it very well could be an error, or not. :lol:

Either way, there's nothing we can do about it but wait and see if it resolves itself in the future. Sorry!

Thanks, Tricia. I'm a bit of a Stringer fan, so am hoping its not an error and that there's more to come.

Cheers!

Busby,

I am not sure why the search didn't work earlier, but it is working fine for me now.

The Shadow, by Arthur STRINGER

The Shadow appears, David, but the search suggests that there is a second Stringer project in progress. As I say, it has been this way for over a year (possibly two), but no second project has materialized:

Busby,

That is a glitch in our software. The summary author's that shows on the search result page is not always accurate; however the list that appears when you click on the author name is accurate.

Here is an example using another author.
https://librivox.org/search?q=Bliss%20Carman&search_form=advanced

Quote:
Bliss Carman
Completed: 10 books | In progress: 1 books


When you click on the author link, the list actually shows 19 completed titles.
