The Fates of the Princes of Dyfed by Cenydd Morus (1879 - 1937).
Cenydd Morus's (Kenneth Morris) imaginative retelling of tales from the Mabinogion, the great work of Welsh literature first recorded in the 12th-13th century. Written while he was working for the Theosophical Society in California, Morris's version restores the Gods that he believed had disappeared from the written record but must have been present in the oral tradition of the Druid bards. First published in 1914 and republished in the 1970s as the 15th volume in the celebrated Newcastle Forgotten Fantasy Library. ( Phil Benson)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Here's the Preface. I've been practicing my Welsh pronunciation, but I've no idea if I'm really getting it right :?

I've set up your MW, my attendance will be a bit patchy this week - visitors everywhere so send a PM if you are really stuck.

Hello again Phil,

One note for the preface:
19.16, mid-page, end of paragraph, omission (perhaps it sounded like a repetition when it really wasn't, and there's an extra version on the raw file?)
she is there!

Judging by the preface alone this book sounds very promising indeed!

I'll be on the move at the very end of this month and the beginning of August. Not for very long, but I thought I'd mention it.
Erin
