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 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! 😎

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! 😎
Welcome Fiona, Cheryl, and Wendy to Afterword for Compendium. 😁
It was decided that because the Afterword to The Compendium volume will be not only a capstone to the text itself, it will also be such to the entire Encyclopædia, that three authors were needed to properly encapsulate the content and importance of both The Compendium volume and the whole of the Circle of Logres: Encyclopædia Arthuriana.
Fiona Ingram started her fiction writing career after a family trip with her mom and two young nephews to Egypt for the ‘adventure of a lifetime’ that changed her life. She decided to write a short story for her nephews as a different kind of souvenir of their holiday. The short story turned into a full-length book that turned into an exciting seven-book adventure series. Fiona’s multi-award-winning middle-grade series is sure to get any reluctant young reader to love books. She edits for a top book review company, teaches online novel writing, and is busy writing the next adventure in the series.
Cheryl Carpinello is a retired high school English teacher. After 20+ years of working with students who didn’t like to read, she discovered the topics that inspired those Reluctant Readers to pick up books: Arthurian Legend and stories from the Ancient World. With her Tales & Legends, she inspires Reluctant Young Readers & others to read more and explore the legends of the world.
After teaching French, Latin, and Classical Studies for almost 20 years, Wendy Leighton-Porter’s career took a new direction when she decided to fulfil her ambition of becoming a children’s author. A passion for history inspired her debut writing project – an ambitious 25-part series of Middle-Grade time-travel adventures, Shadows from the Past. Each of the stories is set during periods of history that have always fascinated her, including that of the Dark Ages world of Arthurian legend. Adventure and education always go hand-in-hand in Wendy’s books, which are designed to allow young readers to learn, perhaps without even realising it.
Welcome aboard Fiona, Cheryl, and Wendy!
