It’s been quite a while since I’ve provided you with an update, so I thought it about time.
Over the past few months, I have been gathering art for Steve’s book. Some of it is in hard copy, paper-and-pencil/ink form and a lot of it is in digital form. I want to thank Betty and Denny (Steve’s parents) for being patient with my on my visits to their place as I dug through boxes of Steve’s belongings, books, and art. They have been very generous to lend me a great deal of it for this project, including the approximately 300 CD-ROMs and two external hard drives containing Steve’s back-up files.
My time has been spent rooting around in these files, selecting the pieces that will end up in the final book. It has not been an easy process, but I am pleased with the selection as it currently exists.
The exact pieces that will end of in the book may change, however. Less than an hour ago, I delivered all the bits and pieces to the designer (minus only one or two documents). I expect I will see an initial proof of the book by the end of the month.
In short, Unfinished Stories is moving along. A big piece of the work is out of the way, and I expect that you should be receiving more frequent updates from now on.
