The Boats of the "Glen Carrig" is Complete

The final audio files for The Boats of the "Glen Carrig" are complete and available. See the Hodgecast blog here.

I've been listening to the whole thing (it is about 7 hours long) and despite some technical glitches, I am quite pleased with the result. I'm considering what kind of recording project to take on next.

Next year the novel will be 100 years old. The story itself, according to the fictional date of its writing, will be 250 years old. I think this requires some sort of special commemoration. How about a banquet of salt pork and shellfish and broken biscuit, flavored with a little vinegar, and accompanied by a sound jorum of rum? For dessert, molasses mixed with a little hot water?

Or maybe some kind of live multimedia program involving artwork, music, and reading excerpts of the novel. It's a pretty vague idea right now, but there it is.
