BOOK ON HERBERT PONTING
Anne Strathie e-mails to say: "I’m still working on my book on Ponting, but it will hopefully be at final proof stage by the time of the Dublin gathering [7-9 June 2019]".
Anne's previous books includes her biography of Birdie Bowers (Birdie Bowers; Captain Scott's Marvel) and From Ice Floes to Battlefields; Scott's 'Antarctics' in the First World War. Both were issued by the History Press.

FROM CRIS DE BOOS (Erskine Press)
Cris de Boos, of Erskine Press, e-mails to say:
"I've got two definite and one possible for this year. I've been offered a translation of the Lecointe: 'In the Land of the Penguins.' It's a very formal translation, actually a literal translation, and needs a lot work. However it hasn't been done before and it's worth doing. These days scanning in the pictures in the old book can be done with remarkable clarity."

J. FOSTER STACKHOUSE'S 1914 BRITISH ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION
David Harrowfield e-mails from New Zealand that "Oamaru with 13,000 residents, is on our east coast. From here the news of the death of Captain R.F. Scott RN and his party, was sent off via Christchurch to London in February 1913.
At present we are planning major events in Oamaru to mark this significant occasion in polar history and expect people from beyond New Zealand to attend. I have a new book on Oamaru and Antarctica almost completed and an limited/numbered edition will be released at the time." [NOTE: Since published.]

T.H. Baughman e-mails to say:
"I wanted to call to your attention and have you post on the works-in-progress page, that I am at work on a book that will describe Antarctica, 1922-1941. I failed to register a previous project and after two years of research discovered that someone else had completed her manuscript, so I am hoping to avoid that problem this time around."(13 August 2008)
UPDATE: The April issue of 'Analog' is now out. Not the easiest thing to find; took two trips to Harvard Square! Pp 12-41 out of 144 pages. This is what Brenda had to say recently: "The magazine has printed the novella [MAY BE SOME TIME], which is about 20,000 words and comprises the front end of the full novel. The web page [http://www.analogsf.com/0104/issue_0104.html] has only an excerpt of the novella, looks like the first couple thousand words. The magazine is a print publication and ought to be available now at newsstands, in big bookstores, etc. So on the web page you really are getting a very tiny sample indeed. The novel itself is far far longer (at this point I'd estimate 150,000 words) and will not be published until 2002 or 2003."
(15 March 2001)
UPDATE: Brenda recently reported that she's done another novella about Titus which should be appearing in the July-August 2002 issue of ANALOG.
Also, her first one "...has made the final ballot for the Nebula Award, which is given by the Science Fiction Writers of America. As a result, the complete novella is up on the Analog web site — www.analogsf.com" Congratulations!

UPDATE: Have a look at Brenda's very useful bibliography at http://www.sff.net/people/Brenda/rtwbib.htm
(6 March 2003)
UPDATE: I recently received a copy from Rik; a very nice production. Am now waiting to learn of its general availability.
(28 January 2004)
UPDATE: The article appeared in the March 2001 issue (Vol 51 ; pp 44-51), entitled 'From Greenland's Icy Mountains.' Ann has been working on a book-length biography of Markham.
UPDATE: Ann spoke on Markham at the 4 November 2005 James Caird Society members' evening. Her book on Markham is complete but, oddly enough, no publisher is in the wings. Markham being the key figure in the launch of the 'Heroic Age' one would think this would be a very publishable biography, particularly given the credentials of the author.
