Oh? I thought you were telling me to publish something in it. I can't think of anything; I asked your opinin.

I still can't think of anything I'd like to publish in the SWF. Certainly no one has offered me anything.

200,000 words of Cornish is hardly complacent as you well know.

I edited Skeul an Tavas, and will edit its second edition. I don't know what else you expect. The Seat of Storms, if translated, will pretty certainly not be translated into the SWF.
