Ghosts, Being The Experiences of Flaxman Low, by Hesketh Vernon Hesketh-Prichard (1876 - 1922) and Kate O'Brien Ryall Prichard (1851 - 1935)
A collection of ghost stories featuring Flaxman Low, the first psychic detective of fiction. The stories were first written for Pearson's Magazine, and the tales were disconcertingly being promoted by Pearson as "real ghost stories". (Summary by Rapunzelina)

Definitely! Thank you for joining us, Tara! By what name would you like to be credited as a Reader in the catalogue? It could be your forum name, or the name you'll be using in the recordings for the "Read by" part :D

Consider doing a test recording before the real one, to check that your recording settings are correct. It's best to have everything sorted out, before recording a long section only to discover something was wrong with the setting... Here's info on how to do this test https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test
