Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending September 16th, 2018.
My trip to get the computer fixed went all snafu 1/3 of the way there. So … yeah. Still working on that. Some day, maybe.
Postal Exchange and Publication Subscription perks for Patrons when out, and should probably have all arrived by now. I’ll start working on the next one now!
I had a suggestion for a Research Topic from a Patron, and, oddly enough, that’s the first I time! A Patron suggested they’d like to hear more about the Order of Asiatic Brethren, So, I posted that specific call for submissions, and reached out to a couple of people to see if they had thoughts. This one might be a big hard to get more information about, as I’m told there’s a lot of unpublished material out there, but no one I talked to was able to add more new research. Still, we’ve got the call for submissions out, and we might get lucky and encourage new work.
I did create a new entry on the Hermeneuticon wiki for Order of the Asiatic Brethren which you can gander at. (This article is one of several brand new articles, and I’ll be working on more of those as I am able.)
Also, since this was apparently the first research topic that’s been suggested, I wanted to remind everyone about the Research Topics perk for ongoing Patrons of Hermetic Library. If you’re already a Patron with that perk, consider letting me know, if there are and research topics that you’d like to have posted. If you want to participate in suggesting new research topics, and help support the submissions process for new work on those topics, consider joining in!
I also have created a new short link http://research.hrmtc.com that will arrive at a list of all the posted Research Topics on the library blog.
This weekend I posted a brand new Omnium Gatherum to the blog. It’s been a few years since I’ve done that. When I created the Hrmtc Underground BBS, I’d started to move all my Gatherum activity over there, and that’s still a place for it; but, I haven’t done much of that even there lately. I kinda miss them. So, I’m going to try doing them again, but they’ll be collected posts on the blog, which will also be available over on the BBS.
Don’t forget the rapidly approaching September 30th deadline for the call for submissions to Hermetic Library’s anthology album for 2018, Magick, Music and Ritual 14! If you were waiting, now’s the time to send those in! Really, this time in the process is always so stressful, as I never know if things will come together until they do, usually at the last minute. But, there’s less than a month left. Only a couple weeks. Now’s the time to get on it!
Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.
