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! 😎
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! 😎
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! 😎
My laptop finally destabilised its Wndows 10. The most recent update hosed it up. Uninstalling the update didn’t help. Doing a system restore failed to complete. Suffuce to say that I ended up doing a complete resetting of the laptop. Spent all day with this. I really just need a real PC not a laptop, unless a better laptop would suffice, but I doubt it.
Well. I am rightly screwed. I did a complete reset of the laptop. Now all it does is boot to the HP logo screen, then shuts down and reboots again, and again, and again. It won’t even go into safe mode or into automatic repair mode. It is stuck in an endless rebooting loop. I am completely dead in the water. I cannot do all I need to do on my mobile. My important data are safe on my external drives. But all is useless without a computer. I do not have the disposable income necessary to replace the computer.
Today is over. I will sleep. Maybe I will wake up to $1000 in my PayPal account. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
But I somehow doubt it. I really don’t know how I will be able to continue my work. Goodnight. 😴😡😴😡😴
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! 😎
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! 😎
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! 😎
The Grand Bibliography has 2345 sources. The Manuscript is 1345 pages. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. So, until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
Still stuck in The Grand Bibliography, which now has 2348 sources. The Manuscript is 1345 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
