YGWV is a curse and blessing

for me and for you

My Gloranthan canon has always been of growth and change I spent my early publishing life rewriting every RQ Gloranthan submission to make it right
My vision was clear, commitment total, and operating a full capacity That is hard work. Life imposed itself.
I spent part of it figuring that, if something was not wrong, then it was OK by me
My obligatory obsession diminished as I realized that other people had a good grasp on the Gloranthan doorway as mine, though different I have spent the latest part in extricating myself yet more, To a healthy objectivity about it
With deep and sincere concern
much as I view the lives of my adult children

I have never seen the edges of Glorantha clearly, only the multiple centers

And even that moves, and has moved

Even a canonical list will be inconsistent

And I think that is a good thing

However, Arcane Lore is actually a book that I never wanted to publish

Because it is much too far out, too speculative to be compared with any of my actual unfinished works

Which I enjoy deeply

*To play,* pare down all the stuff you don't want & throw it away even if I wrote it
