Alison | 953 comments Stephen King allowed anyone to record themselves reading his short story "Laurie" as long as it was free. Someone added an audiobook edition for one of these recordings (review mentions the narrator). Should it be merged into the default?

That depends. Is the audiobook available online for public download?

Alison | 953 comments I haven't found one with the exact narrator name (handle) the reviewer used, but I found one with a very similar name on soundcloud that is downloadable if you log in: https://soundcloud.com/mrcreepypasta/...

There are several versions on Youtube, but you can't download directly from Youtube AFAIK.

If it's only on a site that requires a login, we don't consider that published. So then yes, it should be merged into the default edition.
