Subject:  	Bevington text on line
 
I just received the following note (hard copy) from David Bevington:
 
"Just to report that the idea of putting the new HarperCollins Shakespeare
on disk seems to be back on track.  I was sure it was cancelled, but no,
I got a phone call.  One can't predict for sure it will happen, but it is
now a lively enough prospect that you might correct on your network the
negative impression I gave you last month.  At present the plan is just to
put the whole book--notes, introductions, and all--on disk.  There was a
fancier option of software with windows and all but quite possibly not worth
the cost.  If anyone has an opinion on that I'd be grateful and will pass
any reactions on to HarperCollins."
 
No indication of cost, accessibility, copyright, etc., as you can see.  For
what it's worth.  The HarperCollins editor for the Bevington text is Lisa
Moore, but I haven't contacted her for more information.

The November 30th "Project Gutenberg Newsletter", distributed on the
Internet via the newsgroup bit.listserv.gutnberg, and on Bitnet via
GUTNBERG@UIUCVMD, briefly summarizes the electronic texts released
into the public domain by the Project thus far, and those forthcoming.
I have found it difficult to find such a list elsewhere, so I will
summarize it here.  The complete Newsletter, including FTP information
and current news, is available as PROJECT GUTNBERG SHAKSPER on the
Fileserver. -- k.s.

Subject: 2.0312  Q: Shakespearean Graphics Files?
Comment: 	RE: SHK 2.0312  Q: Shakespearean Graphics Files?
 
There's a HyperCard stack (Mac only) called "Shakespeare's Life and Times,"
from Intellimation, P.O. Box 1922, Santa Barbara, CA 93116-1922,
805-968-2291.  The stack contains enormous amounts of graphic material:
title pages, etchings, reproductions of paintings and photographs.  The
stack covers eight disks and requires a hard disk for proper operation.
While there is a copyright notice on the graphics, it might be possible to
work out an arrangement with the company, and also an arrangement with a
friendly Mac person to cut and paste the desired graphics into an
IBM-compatible format.
 
The stack itself, by the way, is an interesting survey of the life and
times.  It's easy to start exploring one issue and end up down some distant
path in a completely different topic -- by choice, not by accident.  It
encourages browsing and grazing, which is one of the points of hypertext.

In line with Ken Steele's call for texts, I should be interested in
hearing from anyone interested in editing/entering Robert Greene's texts,
as part of a team working on a collected edition to be published by
Edwin Mellen Press.
