Welcoming Ash Caton to Foreword to Round Table & Knights volume. πŸ˜

Ash Caton will be writing the Foreword to The Round Table and Knights volume of Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. Welcome aboard, Ash! 😎

Welcoming Author Rachael Bulla to the Guinevere Volume. πŸ˜€

Rachael Bulla will be writing the Foreword to the Guinevere volume of Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. Welcome aboard Rachael! That puts us at 20 authors. Only 12 left to go! 😎😁😎

Virginia Chandler has agreed to write the Foreword to the Gawain volume. πŸ˜

Welcome aboard Virginia Chandler. Glad that you will be writing the Foreword to the Gawain volume. Once we find someone for the Afterword, then both will be co-authoring the Introduction to the Gawain section in the Introduction volume, as well. 😎

Chris Gidlow has been added to our list of authors. πŸ˜

Having reorganised a few authorial assignments, I now have Chris Gidlow for the Foreword of the Arthur volume. Moving John Matthews to the Foreword of the Grail text, and Linda A Malcor to the Afterword of the Arthur volume. This repositions Katie Anderson to the Grail text Afterword, which gives Broadly John Knight a singular opportunity to compose a short Epilogue for the Grail volume in the form of “Epilogical Grail Musings”.

Still waiting to confirm Caitlin Matthews for the Foreword to The Lady of the Lake text, and Ginger Wages for the Foreword to the Gawain volume. Also August Hunt has agreed to write for us, but has yet to choose a Foreword or an Afterword to a volume. Hope to have these handled soon enough. 😎

First Work Day of 2020. πŸ˜

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. πŸ˜€

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! 😎

Special Announcement: Anastasija Ropa has agreed to write the Foreword to the Perceval and Galahad volume. πŸ˜

Glad to welcome aboard another author to a our growing group of contributors. Anastasija Ropa is an Alumna of Bangor University, with a PhD in Medieval and Modern Arthurian Literature. That officially puts us at fifteen (15) authors. Only eighteen left to go! 😎

A little bit of this, a little bit of that. πŸ˜€

Sent out requested emails to potential additional authors for the Afterwords and Forewords to each of the sixteen volumes (currently at fourteen authors). 😱

At 2 May 2018 in my email. Grand Bibliography is 1846 sources. Manuscript is 1254 pages. 😁

Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. Until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

A different kind of work day. πŸ˜³

Spent a goodly amount of time fighting my laptop as it attempted to update Windows 10. Still waiting. 😠

Additional time was occupied by interaction with our 14 authors in creating a FB discussion group for us. πŸ˜€

Still at 9 May 2018 in my email. The Grand Bibliography has 1839 sources. The Introduction volume’s manuscript stands at 1253 pages. 😁

Tomorrow (or rather later today -Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
