Grand Bibliography is officially “frozen”. 😁

Finished with old emails. The Manuscript is 1395 pages. The Grand Bibliography is “frozen” at 2732 sources. The next phase is the reconciliation of the Bibliography in the Manuscript with the shortcuts folder for the Grand Bibliography. This will include recombination of sources, especially web-based ones. So, the total number of sources will decrease. After that, any missing physical, digital, or “otherwise extracted” source material will be located and added to the shortcut folder. Then topic-area-corresponding shortcuts will be copied to the appropriate subfolders. The Bibliography of Cited Sources and Bibliography for Further Reading will be tentatively determined for the encyclopædia-set volumes. The upcoming days will be spent preparing for these next phases. So the next blog post will occur as an update on my progress by Sunday 13 September 2020. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Work Day of 2020. 😁

Schedule is working out wonderfully. Today went well. Currently sitting at 3 April 2018 in my emails. The Grand Bibliography is at 1945 sources. The Introduction manuscript is at 1265 pages total. 😀

It is becoming more and more clear to me that this project is my Opus Magnum. As explained on the Main Page of the Circle of Logres website, each volume goes well beyond the explanations for each topic within Arthuriana. Each book is governed by the specific Archetype that manifests not only in Arthuriana, but across time from the earliest existence of the concept to its modern incarnations. The bulk of information presented in each volume does indeed represent those Archetypes within the true Source Texts of Arthuriana. 😳

So, with that in mind, it is my fondest hope that 2020 will see us gathering together all of the necessary authors to truly “bookend” these sixteen (16) volumes. Ultimately, I hope to unite all of Arthuriana in this common cause. 😊

Tomorrow (Monday) is a work day. So, until then True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
