Here are the previous announcements moved over from the HTML pages, so that they are in one place.

Revision History

November 3, 2003 - This log is now closed
Further announcements are made in the Announcements and News Forum.

phpbb2 is heaps better than Forum Romanum. Check it out.

Now you can also comment on the novels. Please do!

Juli 13, 2003 - Hacked in all shortstories into the CMS
Allowed comments on all shortstories. I hope some of you will pick up the gauntlet and write something interesting.

Juni 9, 2003 - Moveable Type migration started
Migrated the bio.html page and the about.html page to Moveable Type, because I just can't bear to edit these HTML pages any longer without a nice front end.

old revision log in reverse order

24. Aug. 1997 - Due to massive overdosing during the last overhaul of this site, I think I will take a few weeks off now and not touch any Lafferty, although I got three unread books in the queue.

16. Okt. 1997 - Got a few more books, read a few more and updated the page accordingly. Thanks for all the feedback so far.

1.Nov.1997 - Since 16.Okt a lot of changes have been and will be made. By the end of the year I should be getting a lot more Lafferty material.

29.Nov.1997 - Added finally two summaries in the Novel section. Fixed up the bio info a bit.

3.Feb.1998 - Still waiting for the 1.Nov shipment...
In the meantime I got a lot of info about german translations from Christian Pree

10.Feb.1998 - News from Lafferty's cousin!! Thanks to Chris Merle from the OSFW for thisinfo

12.Mar.1998 - Got a lot of information concerning dutch translations and shortstories fromJohan Elzer. I also got some nice background info and shortstory info from Sheryl Smith. I finally got the 1.Nov shipment and am wading knee-deep in Lafferty material. Expect to see updates more regularly. Also check out the Links as I have added a lot of background links there.

30.Mar.1998 - Added translation information from Piotr Gociek Fixed message-board for Netscape consumption.

01.Apr.1998 - Slight HTML fixes. Added a shortstory review.

17.Apr.1998 - Sigh, one more Netscape table bug in mainpage killed

18.Jul.1998 - Fixed a few short stories typos, and corrected the ratings statistics, which were really sloppy. Added a link to Crank!

21.Jul.1998 - Fixed some broken links (thanks go to Carol de Priest for bringing this to my attention)

25.Aug.1998 - Fixed message board strangeness, by removing a comment. This should hopefuly work fine now. Read Aurelia. Thanks to Gary Bearman for graciously providing me with a copy. Review coming soon.

3.Dec.1998 - Added a link, update the novel section a bit. I still haven't gotten around to writing reviews proper for Alaric and Aurelia. Actually I do like them both. Started with the Coscuin chronicles again, but didn't get very far - again. A bit the "Devil is Dead"ish, which I found also a drag to read. I am a shortstory fan :)

24.Feb.1999 - Background work for a really big change with a switch to WebObjects and plans for a user updateable Database. Its gonna be big, if it works :) Took the time to destill some info into a Genealogy Chart which I did with Generations I tool I can recommend and mapped with MapMaker32 which is a crashing piece of garbage and you should avoid.

1.Mar.1999 - Added Funnyfingers & Cabrito to the shortstory collections, just 1 hour after receipt.

21.Mar.1999 - Read Tales of Midnight and Argo made a few fixes and updates in the Novel page. Nothing dramatic.

25.Mar.1999 - Got Ringing Changes, typed the table of contents for the Anthology page. Added a few links.

26.Mar.1999 - Added four short story reviews. Removed a bogus entry

9.Apr.1999 - Rated I don't care who keeps the cows. Coding for the database entry program is underway. But unfortunately I don't find much time for it.

14. Jun 1999 - Added five more reviews to the shortstory section.

21. Mar 2000 - Moved the Lafferty page again, to its final place at Some minor cosmetic changes. New messageboard.
