So here's the short-and-skinny...
All art is done minus 2 spaces (in progress).
Artists Index is done (but will be updated to reflect the final 2 pieces above; obviously, one of those two is the illustration at the end of the Artists Index).
The book has been proofed in its entirety once. The 2nd proof of the 1st half is almost complete, and hope to have the other half within a week or so.
I am doing my absolute best to release this sometime next weekend (the weekend of the 15th), at least as a PDF, with the print books available the week after that.
I need two volunteers at this point: 1) a person to double-check all the credits in the book (that is, make sure every person is accounted for in the appropriate index, and that each page number is there and correct for each credit), and 2) another person to add the PDF bookmarks and internal crosslinks. The PDF bookmarks/links do not need to be ready when the PDF releases, and can be added later. This is one of the reasons I will be releasing this through OBS... so that when those are added, everybody can be alerted about the updated version. (If this were just a "loose" download off the internet from MediaFire or something, it would be difficult to let downloaders know that updates have been made and that a new version is available.)
