Thank you. Hopefully, I will have that out by the morning.

Also, for these collections, do we usually have PLs instead of a DPL?
I will be happy to PL a few of the selections provided by volunteers, if and as needed.

Hold the press...
@BurgundyGrace: I misread the file length. It's 1 hour and a few minutes. That's not too long. We keep it the way it is. No need to edit!

"Young Goodman Brown" is PL OK!

"The Black Reaper" is PL OK!


I have noted a few PL notes for "Panhandle and the Ghosts" (from "All Men are Ghosts"):
35:22 a phrase missing, here in bold: "These," I said, catching him up, "must assuredly be the ghosts of the great philosophies, or systems of thought, which in their earthly state accounted for the existence of everything else, but left the problem of their own existence untouched."
36:40 a phrase missing, here in bold: "Beware, then, how you proceed!" said he. "It is possible that you will be haunted
38:12 a phrase missing, here in bold: Just as the personalities created by genius are apt to repudiate their creators, so the great philosophies
39:53 a phrase missing, here in bold: become diseases when translated to the second, and some of the ghosts in consequence live the life of invalids. The ghost of Evolution, for example [...]

I suspect some over-editing here :mrgreen: You can work the edits from bottom to top so that you don't lose the time-stamps.
I would also suggest changing the filename to use "Panhandle and the Ghosts" as title, except if I'm mistaken that this is the title of this particular story.
Optionally, at around 00:28 I would change the order, I would first put Dante's verse, and then the "Part 1, PANHANDLE LAYS DOWN A PRINCIPLE", because that's the order in the text as well.

I have to say, the voices and accents were excellent!!! :thumbs: :thumbs: :D


And one PL note for "Ooze":
around 03:16 (page 13), text missing from the recording "I cherish sanctified memory of her for just that much, [text missing] They kept an apartment in Wilmette"

Here we have the renamed file:
Panhandle and the Ghosts by L.P. Jacks

https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor032_panhandleandtheghosts_lpjacks_agc_128kb.mp3
with length of 101:48


*THANK YOU,* Rapunzelina for the terrific prooflistening. Your notes made it very easy to find and complete the add-ins!
I completely agree about the ordering of Dante's canto with the rest of the story; that has been transposed, per your fine suggestion.

I still found it to be a bit of an awkward transition, so stated "Our story is introduced by this header:"
That seems to help with the flow.

Oh, yessss. It appears that after listening to this in its entirety about 10 times, that I, embarrasingly, took a five-minute nap and that's why there are so many omissions right at those marks! I can hardly believe that I missed those after listening so much. *laugh*

*Smile* Yes, you are right! There was a "bit" of over-editing. Thank you for cathing everything!
All should be done now.
*SMILE*

Good evening! I have punched in the missed paragraph. Don't know how I edited that part out...well, I fixed it. Just glad to have great prooflisteners.

PL OK! :thumbs:
I will just comment on the way the time duration is posted, because this way it looks like 101 minutes 48 seconds. :mrgreen:
You can type it as 1:01:48 if you want to say 1 hour, 1 minute, 48 seconds, or 61:48, if you want to say 61 minutes, 48 seconds. :wink:

Hi Mike! The file with the edit is PL OK!
I forgot to comment on the filename the first time: we use lower case letters for the filenames and it needs to have "_128kb" at the end for correct cataloguing. Just for future reference. Don't worry about this one, I have renamed it to https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor032_ooze_rud_mg_128kb.mp3
:D

Thanks, Rapunzelina.
Yes, ah, hm. I realized (after I wrote it twice) how that could be confusing.

Fortunately, it will be a rare occurrence where my recording for LV will exceed an hour.
Unfortunately, it will be so rare that ... I may make the mistake again. *blush*

Mea culpa.
But mostly, *thank you* for your PL!

Hi Bart,

Two more short horror stories, both by Ambrose Bierce and in "Can Such Things Be?"

The Middle Toe of the Right Foot [21:40]: https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor032_middletoe_bierce_jtvs_128kb.mp3

One Summer Night [4:39]:
https://librivox.org/uploads/bart/ghohor032_1summernight_bierce_jtvs_128kb.mp3

Text for both: http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext03/canbe10h.htm

Best!
John
