Short Stort Collection 082 by Various ( - ).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/short-story-collection-082-by-various/

This collection is for any short story in the English Language in the public domain, preferably less than 60 minutes. You are welcome to contribute as many as you wish, and there is no need to "sign-up" before recording as long as the work is clearly in the public domain.

Please ask here if the story was published after 1923 or if you are unsure for any other reason about its public domain status. Note that translations attract their own new copyright and must also have been published before 1923.

Multiple versions are always welcome, so you can record a story that has been recorded before. (If the same stories are submitted twice in the same collection, we will carry the second version over to the next collection) .

You may prefer to submit your recording to one of the other more specialized short story collections. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. There is no need to pre-claim

Are we allowed to do up to three? Is that correct? (Not that I'm promising anything...)

I’ve never specified a limit.
I’ve not been counting, but I’m pretty sure Dale and Peter have done more than three before.

Section 1 "Sergeant Warren.." PL notes: There are about 30 seconds at the end, some silence and stray words, that need to be cut to 5 seconds of silence. All the rest is very good :D

I’m not sure there’s a precedent for religious texts in the short story collection... but I can’t think where would be more appropriate, so we’ll be fine. Please don’t take this as authorization for a flood of such pieces though 8-)
