At a Winter's Fire by Bernard Capes (1854 - 1918).

This is a book of stories by Bernard Capes to entertain you if you should find yourself in a cozy chair by the fireplace during the short dark days of winter. ( A. Gramour)
• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/at-a-winters-fire-by-bernard-capes/
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14045

      [For reference only, the scanned book can be found here: https://archive.org/details/atawintersfire01capegoog ]
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Thanks, Nemo! I will put you down for those two. I have been trying to put together Two Sides of the Face: Midwinter's Tales by Q, but many of the stories need to be split into multiple sections. The first story is about 19,000 words. But I like the idea of these stories to while away the winter hours.
Thank you! Stay warm today.
Amy :D
