After months and months of obsession, waiting, scanning and proofreading...I've finally put Gadsby
, Ernest Vincent Wright's 1939 lipogram, to rights.All 267 pages of it!
I've fixed up the Kindle edition to bring it in line with Kindle Previewer standards as well as the Wikisource version
, and also taken care of many a typo and error in the Skipping Fifth
essay. (If you're really curious to seek out the original Wetzel edition, you can find it at the Internet Archive
The revised Constitution edition of Gadsby
is now on sale at Amazon in the U.S.
. I will deal with a few more typos in the next three weeks.
Cost: Just two dollars. (That's a lipogram--and so was this book.)
Well, that's it for now. Although I'll still do journals up to every two months, you won't be seeing me much on deviantArt for the time being. My main focus nowadays is Google+
, which has taken up a lot of my online time nowadays. That said, you're more likely to expect status reports on my projects here from now on, unless I really have something else to write about.
Time to continue my promotional efforts with a listing on AuthorsDB
. After that and a bio update, I'm moving on with a few Aground
posts...and (at long last) the development of my NaNoWriMo project, Marigot Magic
. (If you're happening to wonder what its working title would have been
late last year, it was supposed to be Emancipated Minors
. [Tiffany, the 1980s teen pop sensation, almost became one of these on a legal standpoint.] Too bad the term doesn't quite fit the behaviour of our main character--Samson Dixwell, Guadeloupe raccoon--as it should have. I wonder if Dominica has any law pertaining to that, anyhow?)
Till then, we'll keep in touch...and diè wåde
