Volunteers outside the USA: James Stephens died in 1950. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
Collection of Irish Fairy Tales set in a wooded, Medieval Ireland filled with larger-than-life hunters, warriors, kings, and fairies ( Anthony K. Futterer)
    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/2892
    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.

Perhaps someone can correct or confirm this but I thought a book published in 1923 would not become PD in the US until January 1, 2019.

That is correct, Dave. However, in this case the first edition, published in 1920, would be okay. It is available from PG at the following link

Only the MC can delete a row in the MW. The BC can add rows.

Is it time to head over to the Readers Wanted forum? And should we advertise for a DPL or do you have someone lined up?
