If you can find a PD source, sure.

PG has it, but I don't see the translator info: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1197

Something like 45,000 words, so it's long enough (and short enough) to make a good standalone solo project. :)

The first Archive link is OK to record.

The second one (printed 1982) would have to be researched more, since it doesn't show a clear copyright/printing date of 1923 or earlier. :)

Hi Tricia,

I will be recording and getting ready Taras Bulba Solo https://archive.org/details/tarasbulbataleof00gogouoft/page/n8 , although, I am not sure about the full process.

The one that is already in the archive, Colaborative Taras Bulba and Other tales, is different, there is no translator info as you said http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1197.

Please let me know what I should do next.

Kind regards,

Mike

In the Launch Pad forum is a thread titled "Want to start a solo recording?" - here's a link: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=13513

That gives you the info you need to set up, "launch", a project. Use the template generator linked in that thread to create the first post, then copy/paste the resulting code into a new thread in the Launch Pad.

An MC will come along, clean up anything in the first post that needs cleaning up (sometimes we shorten the suggested file names or tweak the intro wording, things like that), and make the Magic Window. From there you'll be off and running. :)
