Thanks!

One question - Bartleby lists the following for Vol 49...

XLIX. Epic & Saga: Beowulf, The Song of Roland, The Destruction of Dá Derga’s Hostel & The Story of the Volsungs and Niblungs

Is there a disconnect, or is your description just shorter? (I haven't been home to download this, but I guess it will be obvious what's in it then.)

Good catch. Bartleby's is correct.

I just checked the University of Toronto's copy and all that Bartleby listed is included. I used the Project Gutenberg version which, as I see now, is missing at least one-half of the book.

I will correct the volume and repost a corrected one later. Hopefully this weekend depending upon other outside factors.

That's excellent! But a shame that Gutenberg was missing part of it.

No hurry, of course, even though we are all anxious for every new bit of the HC!

And certainly don't let it interfere with your weekend fun! First things first!

Lucky for all of us that I had the texts ready to go in so it was a quick turnaround once I got to it.

The book has more than doubled in length. To the ten people that downloaded the first version, please download the revised version since while your "lite" version may have less than 50% of the calories, this one tastes far better.

Since there were major parts missing from the first version I have removed it from the download. If it was just a formatting choice I may have left it. Again, thanks to "Eagle-Eye" Bob for spotting the problem.
