Hi Carolin,
I might need to reupload some of my contributions (the last chapter actually). Apparently, it is against LV policy to incorporate music into the LV contributions. I'll reupload them this weekend.
Sorry for any disruptions.

It's the same thing minus the sound effects and music.

But if anyone wants the versions with sound effects and music, here's the link to my Archive.org account:

Let me know if there's anything else I need to change. Thanks!

Sounds good, Kopikido!
And thank you for the link. I was not yet aware that one could set up such an archive account!

Best,

It's a shame that we're not allowed to incorporate even classical music or sound effects that I created myself into the project.
Listening to good audiobooks with some sound effects reminded me of the radio drama plays that I used to listen to when I was a child.
Anyway, at least I hope that listeners will still enjoy the project with or without the sound effects.

Guys, I think I ran into a little trouble here.
On p. 242 of Second Card Wins, I am reading the inserted poem "Portent" and I am near the last stanza.
It reads:
Alas!--although I shot him--in my dreams.
I hear his warning cry, and watch the storm
(what is this word? I can't read it) where the lightning, through the shadow gleams...

If anyone can help with this minor problem, I will be very glad.
Thanks!!

Hi!
I checked my print copy for any clue as to what the phrase is intended to be. It stands as "Till where the lightnii j ..."
I *think* that due to rough printing (or possibly some code the author is using ... *shrug*) some phrases are simply indistinguishable.
However ... I've noticed through internet texts and the physical book that many times, there's not a seperate word at all, but "stray" characters.

Plus, analyzing the rhythm of the passage, I think it's to be:
"lightening through the shadows" (without another word.)

I don't believe any listener would question that. *Smile*
I hope that makes sense and is helpful.

Also, I DO apologize for not having known we could not add sound effects; I hope it was not TOO much trouble to take them out, and am glad you hadn't completed much more work including them.

Please keep recording; I enjoy what you do very much!

Or, Kopikido ...
Perhaps the word you could not read was "Till."

As in ... 'til I wake up, I should refrain from attempting any detailed communication!

Ahhh, well. Hopefully, your question is now answered. :)

Hi guys,
Here's my next contribution:

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/itineranthouse_13_dawson_128kb.mp3
Time: 33:37

I don't know if I'm allowed in this thread but BurgundyGrace, can I ask you to be my DPL for my solo project "The Missing Formula"?
I am starting to record it (of course, the Itinerant House chapters were prioritised) and we're still in the launch pad section.

Hi all!
Here's my last contribution for this book:

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/itineranthouse_14_dawson_128kb.mp3

I'm probably a bit critical of EFD but I find this story rather muddled to my brain. It's not as well written as Are the Dead Dead? and the Stray Reveler. I mean, why did the (SPOILER ALERT!!) other guy shot himself? Is someone blackmailing someone? Who is being deceptive?

Based on my experience of contributing to this book, here's a drink in modern times that I think E.F. Dawson would enjoy drinking :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, goodnight from this side of the world. Hopefully the coming week, I shall start doing some more recording for LV (most likely my solo work).

Sections 13 and 14 are PL okay, Mary!

As always, you've some great intonations throughout, especially those of surprise/shock!

Yes, indeed. I find Ms. Dawson to be ... wonderfully morbid and mysterious! :)

Best of recording your solo project!

Hi Carolin,
I'd like to do the Gracious Visitation but I'm hesitant to volunteer to read it because I will be very busy for the rest of this month so I won't be able to record and finish it till early October. :cry: :cry: :cry: :( :(
