Britain; 367-664 is at the publisher and should be available in August.  I’ll continue publishing chapters for the next few books and any errors you may find I will make use of when the manuscript is sent back to me.

Now, I have no immediate plans to write something as massive as that any time soon, but I have already gotten the unofficial go-ahead to write another book.  It will be a series of loosely connected essays on topics in post-Roman Britain, sort of like my usual post only more fully researched and with footnotes.  And since you are the people most interested in Arthuriana I thought I would ask if there was something you would like to see.  So far this is what I have, divided loosely by subjects.  It should come to a little more than 100 pages.
