Gilgamesh, Tablets 1-3—The Book!

Can this be real? Twelve years into the enterprise, and I’m finally ready to start releasing *the* project, or at least its first three tablets (out of 11). Wow! It is true.

I will be publishing these three tablets as an e-book available on Amazon (& maybe elsewhere) as soon as I get the logistics taken care of. I’m a bit in shock–things have been shaping up quicker than I expected.

& a quick look at the status of the other tablets reveals the following: everything else is in 2nd draft or farther along. Tablet 7 is finished, tablet 8, nearly so. Tablets 4-6 are in more than decent shape; tablet 11 (the Flood) is finally shaping up. I have a hunch that in the next few months, you will be seeing a companion volume, tablets 4-7. Could this be the light at the end of the tunnel? At the moment, I’m pretty optimistic.

stay tuned for more updates…   RT
