Re: Isle of the Undead by Lloyd Arthur Eshbach - rap

I hadn't realized how much I missed your voice! It's really nice to listen to your recordings again :9: I got one PL note for Part 1, there is a repetition around 1:07 "Vilma Bradley shuddered and shrank against Clifford Darrell's brawny form."

If this is an acceptable entry, I could read it.
It's about 5160 words.

Re: Isle of the Undead by Lloyd Arthur Eshbach - rap

Not to worry... it's a pretty easy read.
I just finished recording Part Two.
Our "heroine" (Vilma) is so pathetic. :roll:
Going out now for an afternoon constitutional with the dog, and to rest my voice ... staying away from everyone else, of course. 8-)

OBOYOBOYOBOY! This is so exciting! I just finished recording Part One, and it's a thrill every 5 seconds! A guilty pleasure if I ever read one. :oops: I'm recording a bunch of stuff while I have the house to myself, with editing to come... And I'm amazed that I remember how to use Audacity and my mi...

Hello Ava, I'm back! 8-) I'd love to do sections 4 (movies) and 7 (plants)! I love old movies! And I love Luther Burbank! I grew up in Santa Rosa, where his house/museum is; and I live in Sebastopol, where his experimental farm is! And... I like the way Severing writes; it's very fluid and "natural"...

Re: SOLO: The Isle of the Undead by Lloyd Arthur Eshbach - rap

FAB. 8-)
I've just finished marking up the text.
It had been a while since my last reading, and I had forgotten what a scenery-flamer this really is.
I can almost hear Tod Slaughter laughing maniacally in the background; he would have made a wonderful Leon Corio. :twisted:

Looks like a fun one! Like me to DPL?
Hello Julian,
How nice of you to offer! :D
I think Rapunzelina will be doing double duty as MC and DPL.
But if I mistype... she will correct my grievous error.
Stay tuned...LJB 8-)
