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 September 2021. 😳

Currently at source 2034 out of 2895. I will know more by year’s end if I need to move the deadline for the release of the Introductory volume. We shall see how things go. So, until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

First Offical Work Day of August 2021. 😳

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! 😎

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 Official Work Day of June 2021. 🤓

We have all of our authors for Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana. 😁

Now at source 1525 out of 2867 total. Hope that by year’s end the Grand Bibliography will have all of its citations verified. If not, another year will be added to the publishing calendar. We shall see what 2022 brings. So, until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Summary of Current Strategy ✌❤🚀

My most recent tasks during my work or “on” days have been an attempted balance between checking source content for my physical copies of texts (sometimes overlapping with having them also in digital form); locating copies of any kind (physical, digital, excerpts) for the Mediæval Source texts that require it; and attempting to finish sorting my old emails (which contain sources and/or source links). I wish to “freeze” the Grand Bibliography ASAP; but it must happen at a logical juncture. Things are moving way too slowly for my taste. As I get all of the ducks in a row for the entire project’s structure, things will move much more quickly (in theory). This is a culmination of over four decades of research. It is also the first time that literally all of my notes and research have been put in one place. It is truly colossal. I am here alone, so I must do everything that needs to be done. Today is a work day, so I need to accomplish tasks. Look for my regular blog post later. 😎

Still processing … 😳😱😶

The Grand Bibliography has 2137 sources now. Eventually, each of the sixteen (16) volumes will have a Bibliography for Cited Sources, and a Bibliography for Further Reading. The manuscript for The Introduction volume is 1282 pages. 😊

Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Last work day of the year. 😳

As I said in Wednesday’s blog post, I am taking an additional week off at the end of each year. I will return on Sunday 5 January 2020. 😀

I will keep up my daily social media, and eventually answer msgs. 😂

Made it to 10 April 2018 in my email. The Grand Bibliography is 1882 sources. The manuscript to the Introduction volume is 1258 pages. 😁

Until next year, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
