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 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
Bliss Carman
Completed: 10 books | In progress: 1 books
When you click on the author link, the list actually shows 19 completed titles.
