If MOAR Volume II, Teutonic Mythology, doesn't become available, anyone who is interested in the subject might consider the four volumes of Teutonic Mythology by Jakob Grimm (yes, one of those Grimms) available on Internet Archive and, I believe, Google Books. To quote from Children's Literature (Li...

Audacity 'bumps and grinds'

I've been informed of errors that I made in my version of Lincoln's Second Inaugural, not read about until after the Nonfiction Collection was posted.

Virtually none of the following will do much good with respect to whether it's ok to do a reading of this book, but I feel led to share it any way. First, I did an extensive search for archbishop Averkios Lampire, not only where he might have been found on the Net, but within what small quantity of ...
