I had to read this one several times to begin to understand it. There MAY only be three characters -- And, when read under another set of Literary rules, there may only be TWO characters. (And Freudian's might argue that there is only one character, but I'm no shrink, so I will stick with three)

Enjoy
Dale

As an aside, my friends who know about snakes tell me that the lack of water for two years is driving them down. Another benefit of Climate Change, I guess...

It needs to be Public Domain... which means 1925 or earlier but if you are in a country other than the US, you also have to pay attention to death dates (varies according to country). I always start with projectgutengerg.org Magazines often have appropriate stories, as do short story collections by specific authors.

The way it works is that you submit a story with the required information and I keep adding to the MW until it is full. A couple of days later, I open up the next collection and the whole process starts over... so if you record something and that last spot is taken by the time you submit it, it just gets put in the next collection.

The Blue Cross

From 13:00-13:40 there is a loud background noise. I'm not sure noise cleaning would help, so it would be best to re-record that passage.

For the outro, it sounds like you say "J.K. Chesterton". It should be "G.K. Chesterton". His name was Gilbert Keith.


For future recordings, please slow down! For audiobooks, slower is better so the listener can process one sentence before you start the next. As it is, the effect is somewhat garbled.
