Subject: 	The Too Many Irons in the Fire Edition

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

When I announced a while back that I had recovered some of my previously 
lost energy, I had no idea of what would be in store for me soon 

I started getting flooded with ideas - incorporating as a 
not-for-profit, establishing a book review feature, collaborating with 
STYLE for a special edition, and so on and all of this happening as a 
new semester began and I was teaching a course I had not taught in a 
dozen years and another that had had a textbook change.

Also, the discussions on SHAKSPER have recently been, for the most part, 
exemplarily - the level of the topics, the traffic, and the discourse.

Add to this mix, that I have a couple of essays that are very important 
to me that need to be revised for deadlines that passed yesterday 
(metaphorically speaking).

Truly, I must be more of myself again since I find myself in that 
familiar place of having made far more commitments than are appropriate.

Nevertheless, I have not forgotten most of what I have committed to.

I am still planning on incorporating; I have decided to use a firm I 
found on the Internet that specializing in doing the paperwork for 
non-profits. I temporarily have misplaced the URL, but I am sure once I 
have the time to look that it will turn up.

I intend to establish a book review feature but instituting it will have 
to wait for the time being.

Regarding the collaboration with STYLE on a special issue related to the 
issue of authorial intention in drama, I have decided (someone did also 
suggest this approach) to let the current lively and informative 
discussion to continue until it runs its course. After a hiatus, we will 
begin a Roundtable forum on this topic. I envision that the Roundtable 
moderator will also be the guest editor of the special edition of STYLE 
(I have checked with John V. Knapp who approves).

The next step in this collaboration as I see it is to request CVs from 
anyone interested in acting as guest moderator and as guest editor. So 
if you are interested, please send me a CV that I will share with John 

As other items that have slipped through the cracks of my brain occur to 
me, I will address them.
