The Return of the Mucker ( - 0).


This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-return-of-the-mucker-by-edgar-rice-burroughs/

Quote:
The Mucker spent his life fighting. He fought his way out of the worst of Chicago’s slums, he fought his way out of a jail sentence for a murder he didn’t commit. Then, forced to fight for his freedom, destiny led him through a startling series of further adventures to Mexico — and a fight for his life in the middle of a bloody revolution. Like two thieves they crept along in the shadow of the canyon wall. Inwardly Billy cursed the darkness of the night which hid from view everything more than a few paces from them. Yet it might have been this very darkness which would help save them, since it hid them as effectually from an enemy as it hid the enemy from them. ( https://www.edgarriceburroughs.com/?page_id=280)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/331

  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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).

    [color=red]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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The Return of the Mucker. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Return of the Mucker, By Edgar Rice Burroughs . [Chapter number, title]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Return of the Mucker By Edgar Rice Burroughs . This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter number, title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Return of the Mucker, By Edgar Rice Burroughs . "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  4. Example filename returnofthemucker_##_burroughs_1288kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. returnofthemucker_01_burroughs_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)

OK, you're all set. Dave is in as DPL.

You will need to write your own book summary for the catalog so that it is PD.

A minor quibble, at the end of the intro you forgot to give the book title and author.

LV recommends it (see first post instructions) but only for the first section/chapter.

Just a heads up that I will be be been sick with the change in the seasons the past few weeks. So I'm not avoiding working on this, it's just that the throat isn't ready for the strain.

But I'm almost in the clear, so you may hear something later this week! :thumbs:
