And knickers to QI or whoever it was who  said a centurion was in charge of 80-odd men. Pah! Next they'll be saying 'decimate' means reduce by an eighth.... no, hang on, reduce by a fifth .... or something . This post will be more rushed than usual, but still:

The quick news is.

V5.0 is dead, long live V5.1. 

Well, not  l o n g; it's in fact going to be the most short-lived of WVGT releases, as I'm taking it off the market on Friday. It'll be free as soon as Amazon can manage it – 00.00 PST approx.

I've started work on a hardcopy edition, and am in the throes of wrestling with CreateSpace (which really is like wading through molasses, especially when contrasted with Kindle Direct Publishing). I'm getting there, but...


Update 2013.11.06.17:20 – Added this PS:
PS The unspoken message of the "..." after the final "but" was this: Until 22 Nov (the deadline for the ELTon submission) my online presence will be fairly sparse .

Update 2013.11.09.19:20 – Added this note:
I'm still thinking about this. Like another character in the Winter's Tale  – the first one being Autolycus, who is the 'snapper up of unconsidered trifles' (which I gather is a reference to stealing nether garments left to dry on bushes  – wasn' 'e  rude, Shakespeare?)  – 'I am a feather for each wind that blows'.

 Mammon (When Vowels Get Together V5.2: Collection of Kindle word-lists grouping different pronunciations of vowel-pairs. Now complete (that is, it covers all vowel pairs –  but there's still stuff to be done with it; an index, perhaps...?)

And if you have no objection to such promiscuity, Like this.

Freebies (Teaching resources:  over 34,100 views**  and  4,700 downloads to date. They're very eclectic - mostly EFL and MFL, but one of the most popular is from KS4 History, dating from my PGCE, with 1637 views/740 downloads to date. So it's worth having a browse.)

** This figure includes the count of views for a single resource held in an account that I accidentally created many years ago.
