Subject:    Some Announcements

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

Eric and I have been busy, and I urge members to visit the website to 
see some of our handiwork.

First, if go from the homepage www.shaksper.net to the Browse SHAKSPER 
link http://www.shaksper.net/archives/index.html, you will notice that 
the archive volumes for all the past twenty years of SHAKSPER are now 
available and operating as is the Current Postings page. The Current 
Postings page is where you can conveniently go to read web-based daily 
digests from the list. This page is useful should you, for example, have 
access to the Internet but not to your e-mail account and you would like 
to keep up with the day's postings.

On the Browse SHAKSPER page and the list's homepage, you will also find 
the link to the web-based versions of the SHAKSPER Book Reviews with 
bios of the Panel members. I should add that the Panel members have been 
quite busy behind the scenes, planning the next steps in this new 
feature's evolution.

In the near future, I plan to get back to the SHAKSPER Roundtable page, 
for some re-designing and including of the digests in the second 
roundtable on "Intentions." I can report that Cary DiPietro has been 
diligently working with contributors to the Second Roundtable on our 
collaborative venture with the print journal STYLE. STYLE, currently at 
Volume 42, is edited by John V. Knapp and housed at the Northern 
Illinois University. For further information, visit the STYLE website at 

At the SHAKSPER website, you can now find the latest version of my 
"Selected Guide to Shakespeare on the Internet": 
http://www.shaksper.net/archives/files/internet.sites.html. This version 
is the result of my complete revision (to the point of its being 
virtually a new paper) of my essay "Shakespeare on the Internet," the 
concluding essay in the collection forthcoming second edition of 
edited by Stefani Brusberg-Kiermeier and Jorg Helbig (Britannia. 
Frankfurt am Main; New York: Peter Lang). When I learn of its 
publication, I will inform interested members.

I have one more announcement, but I shall let that one wait until the 
next round of SHAKSPER digests.

Best wishes,
Hardy M. Cook
