three questions:

#1 How can I get copies of the old anthologies?

#2 Is there any progress on the new anthology?

#3 if the answer to #2 is no, how can I help?

1. The older anthologies are out of print. We have considered combining the original manuscripts into 1 volume and making them available through a new publisher but no progress has been made in well over a year.

2. Whilst beginning the editing process for the combined volume we considered adding some new material as a bonus but that idea evaporated with the rest of our plans. There hasn't been much interest in a New anology book.

3. If anyone would like to carry on with the anthology project I would be happy to provide all of the existing material and help in any way I can.

Are the challenges of physical publishing a factor? If so, there are now alternatives, which deer, ali, and other Watchers who are e-authors may be able to contribute the expertise to take this the last mile to availability.

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

That hasn't been a problem in the past. We've used LuLu vanity press and it wasn't difficult to actually publish the books.

Where we've had issues more recently is that we've lost our core group of writers and editors. I also don't have the free time I once had and I am not very experienced or adept at editing so it's been a chore working on this on my own. As I said in a previous post I believe the project would be better served in the hands of other Watchers
