First Official Work Day of June 2022.

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! 😎

First Official Work Day of February 2022. 🤓

The content of the present manuscript for The Introduction volume is 1080 pages. Current Bibliography is 470 pages (2899 sources). When the End Notes and Index are complete, that will easily add another 500 pages. In total, it would make sense to break up each of the sixteen volumes into A and B volumes. The A volume would include a Table of Contents, and the Contents itself. The B volume would include an End Notes section, Bibliography of Sources Cited, Bibliography for Further Reading, and a thorough Index

This arrangement divides up the material into two approximately 1000-page volumes. It allows for ease of use in terms of having the A volume open to a particular passage and simultaneously consulting the B volume’s End Notes for the Citations in that passage contained within the A volume. The reverse is also convenient (looking up a topic in the Index, while simultaneously finding the appropriate page in the Contents).

In doing so, this may delay the publication of the first volume, yet again. But we shall see what occurs as time marches on. Until next month’s update, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of January 2022. 😳

Still stuck in that Mythology Dictionary. Should be done with that soon. Was without a functioning computer for 16 days. New computer is finally configured optimally. I had to move the publishing date for the first book out another year (June 2024). Reality has become too weird. I will update next month. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of November 2021.

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! 😎

First Official Work Day of October 2021 😳

Have been a bit stalled in the Grand Bibliography. Fleshing out a Mythology Dictionary as part of the Bibliography. Have also been editing the main page at http://www.CircleOfLogres.com

At the 1865th source out of 2901. October will be productive in terms of getting through the remainder of the Grand Bibliography. Until the next update, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Official Work Day of July 2021. 🤓

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! 😎

First Week of New Phase. 😁

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! 😎

First of Many Weekly (Sunday) Updates. 😁

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! 😎

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! 😎

Almost Ready to Freeze Grand Bibliography. 😳

Back to 10 November 2017 in email. Manuscript is 1395 pages. Grand Bibliography has 2721 sources. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. So, until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
