Hey LJers,

You may remember last year's Operation Ichabod, in which I spliced together recordings of you, your friends, and your family members reading an excerpt from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." I'd like to do the same thing this year, with all and sundry invited to participate, whether you did it last year or not.

I'm probably going to use Poe's "The Raven," since I wager it's the second-most obvious Halloween literature choice (after "Sleepy Hollow"). It is technically more a creepy poem about grief than a true horror story, but still, it's famous, and anything by Poe just screams "Halloween." Unless you guys would much rather use a Stephen King or Dracula excerpt or something?

Anyway, given sufficient interest, I'll do an official sign-up post shortly after this. Being able to record your voice in a tidy mp3 or wav file is handiest, but voice posts work too. So please indicate your sufficient interest, and ability to rope friends and family into the task, here!

Thank you, my little children of the night.

Edit: We definitely have enough interest. Great! I'll do a sign-up post soon. Thank you again.

If you mean you need an address from me, then no problem, I'll be providing that. If you mean *you* need one, then that's another issue. :)

Either case, great! I'll do a sign-up post in the next couple days.

Ah, er, I mean the first option. (Grammar thou art my bane!)

I'll record it with my camera and then email it to you. Preferred formats?
