Thanks, and I think I do, but would appreciate instructions. Do we only have to add the E-text link and author?

That's right. Click on the magnifying glass to bring up the page.
Let me know if an author doesn't show in the database and I will add them.

Oh lordie, I've been adding meta data to my other collections and not a single author has popped up as being in the database, including authors I know very well are in the database. O. Henry, Mark Twain, etc.
I just type the names in.

Be sure to only type the surname, then you should get a dropown menu.
Although for those two (who are most definitely in the database!) it should be ok to type in the names, more obscure people -- who quite possibly are not -- it messes up the system. We need their info/dates/wikipedia entry (or as much as that as is available).

PL OK. I had to look up what an "off break" was. It's a spoof story right? I don't think you can will a technique to someone, can you?

Here's one from me:

Rudyard Kipling
On Dry-Cow Fishing as a Fine Art
http://www.kiplingsociety.co.uk/drycow.htm
Published December 1890
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cbc27_drycowfishing_kipling_mtf_128kb.mp3 13:22

Kevin, would you be able to PL this one for me? And, could I ask you to rename and upload your file again, using the corrected format in the First Post (add author's last name).
