Day 14: Work in progress

I made the longlist for the anthology of profiles I plan to publish next year. The working title of that impending volume is Profilia, and will cover work going back about 35 years. The longlist has 27 names, and I should end up with half that on the shortlist. I need to reread all of them and make up my mind, but so far the probables include:

  • an Irish-American writer
  • a forensic psychiatrist
  • a humorist
  • a thoroughbred horse trainer
  • a deaf boxer
  • a historian of sideshows
  • a novelist
  • a polymathic film editor
  • a sign painter

Much more to be worked out. I would like to get it out in both print and digital form by June 2019. Further bulletins as events warrant.
