Castalia Library update

Book 01 (NOV/DEC) THE MISSIONARIES by Owen Stanley is being bound. The books are anticipated to be shipped the week of March 23-27. The Library print run is 500.

Book 02 (JAN/FEB) THE MEDITATIONS by Marcus Aurelius is being printed. The books are anticipated to be shipped in April. The Library print run is 650.

Book 03 (MAR/APR) AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND by John C. Wright is being laid out and the interior illustrations are being prepared. The print run is undetermined.

Book 04 (MAY/JUN) is being selected. It will either be the first volume of PLUTARCH’S LIVES or INFERNO by Dante.

For future reference, please check the Arkhaven blog for regular updates concerning Castalia Library and the fulfillment of the various crowdfunding projects.

CLARIFICATION: Because, apparently, it is not entirely obvious from the observable evidence, if you do not subscribe to SOMETHING for more than $5 per month that does not involve substantial built-in costs in its own right, (translation: Hero of the Revolution), you are not eligible for a SocialGalactic subscription. If you are involved in one-off flat-free projects such as a crowdfunding campaign, that is recognized in the SG world by the relevant badge and can receive an invitation by subscribing to either UATV or directly to SocialGalactic.

I am, after all, an economist by training, and therefore not inclined to make the obvious mistake of putting SG in a position of taking on unlimited expenses on the basis of fixed revenues.

No. We aren't going to do anything with them until we see how the first leather-bound books turn out.

I'll sign up for either of the May/June options. Ideally both Plutarch's volumes and inferno will be back to back to back. (So I can keep my subscription for three books and back out if I'm not feeling the next).

This is exciting. Of all your projects this feels the most "Vox Day" out of all them, appreciation for good reading in the form of beautiful leather-bound books.

It pretty much is. Just look at my office. About the only thing that would compare is a computer game project that combined strategy, action, AI, and synthetic speech based on one of my books... or Traveller.

When did the fourth book change from Swiss Family Robinson? I'm definitely interested in the current selection just hadn't heard them put forth till now.

When did the fourth book change from Swiss Family Robinson?

Last week. We need to put in considerably more editorial work on that one due to all of the various endings and translations. Our goal is to provide a potentially definitive edition of the works we publish, and that takes time.

In the case of Dante, we're going with the Longfellow translation.

LET'S GO! Can't wait to get my hands on these.
