In other news; the writing script that I developed from the plan of the seven palaces (Galay), is being employed to produce Galay books on demand. Please use the reply button below if you’d like a Galay book. The proviso is that it must be a book that you have copyright to or is in the public domain.

Our latest publication for the Galay library is ‘Dubliners‘ by James Joyce, which is a collection of short stories, written when Irish Nationalism was at it’s height. We felt this work was a revolutionary subject for a revolutionary writing script. The next book to be released shortly will be Richard F. Burton’s edition of The Thousand Nights and One Night.

If you celebrate, happy Thanks giving. Thanks for reading my blog. Stay tuned for more numerical honey. 🙂
