POST IN THREAD - any ADMIN can edit this post and delete your post

This thread is for multi volume works which have some volumes catalogued already but are not complete and no one has put their hands up to complete.
If you are interested in either reading another volume as a Solo or starting a group project, just set it up in the new project Launch Pad and ask your MC to update the list. Some of the projects are very long and will need a high level of experience and commitment :D

And if there are some not listed please post here and they will be added.
