  • I saw the printed proofs for the new Gwulo book late last week. I really thought we'd caught all the mistakes and it would just be a case of signing them off. Instead, two more small mistakes surfaced that needed fixing. That held us up for a few days, but the final changes have all been made and approved, and the book is now out of my hands and away with the printer.
    They plan to deliver the finished books on December 16th, so next Wednesday, December 4th, I'll open up pre-orders with the usual special pricing. That will run until December 14th, then we'll have a day to print labels and prepare the envelopes so the books can be mailed out ASAP after they arrive on the 16th.
  • The comments on the Mo Tat Village thread have several interesting replies about British policy in the New Territories.
