Hermetic Library Newsletter #121

Help me celebrate the anniversary of my birth by supporting my work and sharing the library!

Howdy everyone! Here’s a public summary of my activity this week ending May 19, 2023!

This week I did a bunch of work on creating new entries in Hermeneuticon, and improving a few existing ones.

Also, on a personal note, this upcoming week is the anniversary of my birth, so, if you’re not a supporter, consider becoming one on Patreon, Ko-Fi or Bandcamp (and I’ll give you perks in thanks!). If you’re on social media, consider sharing your good thoughts about the library and liking and sharing a bunch of library posts and post your own links to pages from the site and blog. If you know people that would like to hear about the library, let them know! That’s the best gift you could get me.

And, as always, I worked on various other things I’ve not specifically mentioned on website, blog, and more … Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting and being a guest of Hermetic Library. You help me be of service and make the work of the library meaningful. Especial thanks to each and every ongoing Patron on Patreon, Subscriber at Bandcamp, and Member on Ko-Fi for making the work of the library possible!

Follow Zine on the web and rss. And, if you something you’ve created to share, send it in to the Hermetic Library Zine!

I’ve slowed down posting to one item a week because I’m low on things. I more than filled the previous issue, but now I need more submissions for this current one, if it is to happen, as planned, on Aphelion 2023.
