FRom a listener via info@librivox:
My name is Serena. I want to report a large issue with My Very Own Fairy Stories, by Johnny Gruelle. In section three, "The Ugly Caterpillar," the last page is apparently missing. I read the online text and there is a large portion at the end that is not there in the audio. The audio version ends with the katydids asking the butterfly to be their queen. In the print version, she refuses because they are "false creatures," and flies away. Since this changes the whole point of the story, I thought I should report the problem. If there is a way to fix it, that would be great. Thank you.
Can someone please confirm?

Confirmed.

I can see why it happened. The text link is awful - all individual jpgs of the pages.

I'll PM the reader.

I am so sorry for my errors in this. Here is the additional text uploaded. https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/myveryownfairystories_03_gruelle_128kb.mp3 New length is 10:22. Tricia has graciously offered to make the change to archive etc.
Best,

This file is being replaced right now; it'll just need to re-derive.

Thanks for the alternate text, Anne. It is the same one (same pictures and all). I'll replace it in the catalog file.

I found another Section (09) missing the last paragraph. Which is also my fault. :oops: I am going to try to take care of it with the reader, Xtofer42, who is, thankfully, still very active in Librivox. I will keep you posted here so that you can work your magic to help me make amends for my many errors here.

Chris (Xtofer42) will post the link for Section 9. He is graciously willing and eager to rerecord it with the missing ending. Then I will PL it and post here when that is done.
Sounds like a plan?

Err, not yet. I removed the tag from the subject line. :oops:
