I don’t have any suggestions, but I do wonder if you are still pursuing the Book of Oberon project, and if so do you have anything with which to update us. I confess that I’m fairly excited (still!) over that one.
Sure thing. Joe, Phil, and I are all working on other projects, whether writing or life-based, at the moment, but we’re making headway on the Folger manuscript. We’d like to have the whole thing done by September of next year – that means illustrations reproduced as vector-based computer graphics, Latin passages translated, and text modernized so that you don’t get a headache while trying to read it. (The Folger does keep the original images online, so that should be able to satisfy anyone who wants to read untranslated Latin and grammatically inconsistent Elizabethan secretary hand text in all of its original glory.)
All and all, the book will likely sit at about 200,000 words, which is not so large in George R. R. Martin terms but huge as a non-fiction book, probably comparable to one of the largest Golden Hoard editions. As such, there’s a lot of work involved in getting it ready for publication. I hope all of you will bear with us as we work on it.
