Some folks may have noticed, I just split this into two separate threads, one for short stories and one for longer works. There were just too many to fit into the thread posts I have reserved, so here we are!

Part of the reason for having too many is that with the new year comes a whole slew of 1928 stories from Amazing Stories and Weird Tales that are now available to read, and those have been added to the list!

I am fairly new to this and trying to cobble together the info from various FAQs, wikis and threads etc. If I want to read one of these, what's he best way to "claim" it so I'm not doubling up work? I'd love to cut my teeth on some of these stories.

There's no real way to "claim" any of them. Just go and record one and the post it in the Short Sci-fi Collection based on the guidelines in the first post. Here's the latest open collection:

If in the unlikely event you do end up recording one that's been recorded in this collection, we'll just carry it over into the next collection. There's no harm in recording multiple versions of a story.

I also just did another fairly significant update that includes all the stories from Jan. through Aug. of 1929 Amazing Stories. Apparently Hugo Gernsback registered all of them using a 1927 copyright date (as reflected on the table of contents), so they're fair game!
