A total of 2870 sources are included in the Grand Bibliography. There are others that will be folded in over time. Next is finishing the catalogue of my physical books (to make sure none were missed in the Grand Bibliography). After that will be the sorting of the Grand Bibliography into the thirty main topics areas. I still seem to be on course for the June 2024 release date for The Introduction volume. If there are any delays, it would be to push that release date one more year into the future. At present, I do not see that happening. 😁
So, True Believers, until next time, Excalibur! 😎
Am finally through that mythology dictionary. Currently on source 2283 out of 2894 total. At present, on schedule for the first volume to be released June 2024. I will certainly know more by year’s end.
Until next month, dear readers, Excalibur! 😎
Still immersed in that Mythology Dictionary from two months ago. I may indeed have to add another year to the publishing schedule (Introduction volume being published in June 2024 instead of how it is presently listed on the website as June 2023). We shall see how things go after the first of the year. Until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Am at source 1828 out of 2874. Hope to be finished with the Grand Bibliography for the Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana by year’s end. We shall see if The Introduction volume will be ready for publication by June 2023. 😁
So, until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Currently on source 1716 out of 2886. Goal is to be completely through the Grand Bibliography by year’s end. If not, the release date of the first volume might be pushed to June 2024 instead of 2023. We shall see how the next few months progress.
With that in mind, look to receive my next update in August. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Let us all welcome Candice Trismegistus to the writing of the Foreword to the Tristan and Isolde volume. 😎
Would like to welcome Trudy Carmany Last to Circle of Logres. She will be writing the Afterword to the Tristan and Isolde volume. Trudy is an Independent Researcher from Pennsylvania. Thanks for joining us, Trudy! 😎
Up to source 137 out of 2704 total. This phase to going source by source to reconcile those listed in the Manuscript with the sources referenced in the Grand Bibliography shortcuts folder. There is an additional effort to be sure that physical and/or digital copies of each source exist here locally; not to mention any additional recombination of sources, especially web-based ones. Work days are still Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Next update will be in one week on Sunday 27 September 2020. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Now that a shifting-of-gears is occurring, it has been decided that these posts shall only occur on Sundays for a while. Reconciling the Bibliography as listed in the Manuscript with the Bibliography that appears in the shortcuts folder for the Grand Bibliography is not something that needs posting four days per week. Currently up to #71 out 2700 sources. Their number is already decreasing. Tomorrow (Monday), as well as Wednesday and Friday, is another work day. So, until the next update on Sunday 20 September 2020, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
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! 😎
