Proofreading Done--No Joke!

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, April 1, 2017
While today is April Fools' Day, I have actually completed the proofreading of all 1,142 pages of "Chronologically Lewis." It was a major task, taking 6-8 months, but it was worth it. I'm almost embarrassed by the number of errors I found and corrected. However, the end result is a more accurate chronology, even if most of the errors were corrections of underlining, capitalizing a few first words in sentences, and adding publication years to many books and birth and death years to many people. One major addition remains for the chronology, and then I will be 99% done (apart from snippets that will arise here and there)--the last three volumes of The Lewis Papers. The goal has been for this chronology to be the "go to place" for C. S. Lewis scholars as well as those mildly or greatly interested in the life of C. S. Lewis. Let me know if this chronology has become that for you. I'm at HeckYes@aol.com. Thanks for reading!

I have decided to include belowall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 528 in number) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
