Friday, January 9, 1998
The messages on The William Horwood's Books Discussion Board expired. Not a good thing. Sorry about that. I've increased the 'shelf-life' of messages, which should help.
I moved previous updates to a seperate page. Sorry, I forgot to upload that. Will ASAP, i.e. in a few days. In the Duncton Trilogies section, added a link to the Dark Peak information. I also added a Scots translation of the 'seven Stillstones' text, and apologize for my butchering of the language. :-)
In The Stonor Eagles section, added a link to a photo of 'the view from Stac Lee towards the Cuillin' and a photo of part of the Cuillin ridge.
Friday, December 26 Update

Happy Longest Night!

Removed a dead Golden Eagle photo link. (The link is dead, not the eagle. :-)) A few minor font-style and grammer changes here and there.
Friday, December 3 Update
The William Horwood's Books Discussion Board now exists!
I got rid of the 'Mark of Meaning' link (in the Skallagrigg section) and the 'Intro to the study of Popular Fiction' link (under Duncton Wood)--they're dead and I can't find a new URL. :-P However, to balance this, there are two new Skallagrigg-related links: a page on depression in people with learning disability and the Link-Up June 1997 page.
In addition, I've added some more links to Golden Eagle photos, and a few other new links here and there, which I suppose you'll stumble upon. :-)
Friday, November 21, 1997 Update
I've added a number of links in the Duncton Trilogies section, most about Arbor Low. I've also added a link to The Callanish Standing Stones Photo Page, in (appropriatly enough) the Callanish section. I went through that section with the proverbial fine-toothed comb and changed various links to their site's new location.
