Welcome Ana Rita Martins to the Afterword for Perceval and Galahad. πŸ˜€

Ana Rita Martins will be writing the Afterword for the Perceval and Galahad volume. She is a Department of English Studies Faculty Member at Universidade de Lisboa in Portugal. Glad to have you aboard, Rita. Welcome! 😎

Gained Another Author

Helen Benigni, faculty member at Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia, has agreed to write the Afterword to the Morgan le Fay, Mordred, and Dwellers in Avalon volume of Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. That puts our author total at 18 (9 women, 9 men). Even though it is not a necessity, per se, I would like to keep the gender ratio balanced. Fourteen more authors to go! Thank you all for being a part of this. 😎

Last work day of the month. πŸ˜

The new schedule is helping to assure that I do not burn out. 😱

Presently at 6 July 2018 in my emails. Always keep in mind that I am going backward through my email messages. The number of sources in the Grand Bibliography are 1701. Total pages in the manuscript are 1240. For those who are not aware, this project is the culmination of my studies and research within the whole of Arthuriana from 1972 to the present day πŸ˜€

Tomorrow (Saturday 23 November – Doctor Who day, incidentally) through Saturday 30 November are my next off days. My schedule includes (for the second month now) a “week” off at the end of each month. The only blog posts that might occur during that period would be to inform you of new Arthurian Literature posts of mine on the Arthurian Legends blog; and to inform you of any additional authors for Afterwords and Forewords. Remember we are now at 14, only 18 left to go! Almost halfway there! 😊

I will recommence on Sunday 1 December 2019. As always, I will keep up with my social media every day. πŸ˜›

Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

On the second to last physical folder. πŸ˜Ž

Hope to definitely have the physical folders finished tomorrow (Friday), or Sunday at the latest. πŸ˜€

Presently sporting 1109 sources, and 1175 pages. I will be glad to finish with the physical folders. At least then I will be moving to a handful of sources on Academia.edu. Afterward, it will be a few weeks of going down the source list (Bibliography) to find those sources that only exist as excerpts in my research notes. My goal, with that aspect, is to locate and possess a copy (digital and/or physical) of every single source as it appears in my list. πŸ˜€πŸ˜³πŸ˜€

I have every faith that this near immediate goal shall be reached by this month’s end, or very shortly thereafter. 😁

Until tomorrow, true believers, Excalibur! 😎

Almost finished with the physical folders.

That currently puts me at 1092 sources and 1175 pages. πŸ˜€

Tomorrow should see me finishing the physical folders. Then it is off to find physical or digital copies of sources that exist only as excerpts in my research notes. 😎

I am still finding good copies of sources at Archive.org, Academia.edu, and at ebay. πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜€

Until tomorrow, true believers, Excalibur! 😳
