Hello,


My new recording mic just came in, is it okay if I record "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe?

New mic! Exciting!
Of course you can do the cask of amontillado, but since it is a new mic I would suggest a test recording first to check that everything is configured correctly. Here's the usual test for new readers: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test
Thank you!

Oooh, thank you, Dale! You know how to choose them!

PL OK! :thumbs: Just for future reference; an "M." in front of french names is most probably the french equivalent of "Mr." in front of English names, so when you see it, you could say Monsieur + name, though, I will admit, "Monsieur" is much more difficult to pronounce than a simple "M." :mrgreen:

Hi there!

I'd like to record "Ghost Stories of Chapelizod". There are 3 short stories that are within this mini collection, should I read them all as one recording? I think they work well as a trio together but happy to take your guidance!

Thanks,

Yes, you can read the text of that whole chapter in one recording. But if you'd like to read just the stories and skip the commentary in between, then it would have to be in three separate files. Looking forward to it! :D

Ghost and Horror Short Story Collection Vol. 041

  1. How to submit a story, and 'how it all works' here
    Please select and record any short ghost or horror story in the public domain. There is no need to "sign-up" before recording, as long as the work is clearly in the public domain. If you have any doubts, feel free to ask. Multiple versions are always welcome, so don't worry whether someone else has recorded your selection already; we're happy to hear your version too. :)

    A ghost or horror story should have something of an otherworldly or gruesome nature at its core. Take a look at the various collections in this forum and decide which collection your story would work best in.
    .
  2. New to recording?
    Please read the Newbie Guide to Recording and do a short test recording just to make sure that all your settings are OK. Read this post carefully and refer back to it. It has all the information you need to submit a recording successfully.
    .
  3. Is there a deadline?
    No. This collection will be open until it is full (20 stories have been submitted), at which point another one may be started.
    .
  4. Where can I find horror and ghost stories?
    A good source for ghost and horror stories is https://web.archive.org/web/20141105215835/http://www.classichorrorstories.com/. Of course there will also be bunches on Gutenberg.

    You can also find suggestions in this forum post.

    Please note that a lot of Lovecraft's work is still under copyright - there's a thread here that has an up-to-date list of confirmed PD stories.

    Previous Short Ghost and Horror Collections can be found here - duplicate versions are fine, though not in the same volume.
    .
  5. BEFORE recording:

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz (44100 Hz)
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    .
  6. DURING recording:
    Leave no more than 0.5-1 second of silence at the beginning of your file.
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "[Story title] by [Author name]. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say:
      "[Story title] by [Author name]."
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of [Story Title]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording!
    .
  7. AFTER recording:
    • Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some background noise, you may want to clean it up a bit (optional). Audacity (Mac/Win) offers a much improved noise-cleaning function. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      .
    • Save files as 128 kbps MP3
      File Name: (lower case, separated by underscores):
      ghohor041_shorttitleinoneword-noarticles_authorslastname_readersinitials_128kb.mp3, e.g. ghohor041_roomintower_benson_ce_128kb.mp3
      .
    • ID3 tags
      Not needed for this project. (You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)
    .
  8. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:
      http://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Rapunzelina
      .
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
      .
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link. Please click "Post Reply" at the top left of this thread, and post the link there, including the following information:
      • The title and author of the work.
      • A link to the text that you used.
      • The length of your recording in minutes and seconds mm:ss
      • If this is your first recording for LibriVox, please give us your name as you'd like it to appear in the catalog (that is, either your real name or some pseudonym). We can also link to a personal web site/blog.
Any questions?
Please post below or PM me.

Please don't download files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
