Hi Greg. Thanks for all the memos you've been posting about the early development of the series--they're a lot of fun to read. I was wondering if you had included any of them in the Gargoyles Encyclopedia you prepared? You seem to be finding these notes sporadically, so my guess is either you didn't include them, or you summarized them into a few facts, like how the series was originally a comedy and Demona's name was Dakota, etc. I think they would be worthy additions (and hey, anything that adds to the volume of a book can only make it better! Well, unless it's assigned reading....) And you also seem to composing the episode summaries and backgrounds as you watch them, but some of the things you mention might also be nice to see in the encyclopedia. Then again, I'm making a lot of assumptions--I don't know how your encylopedia is structured (which is also something I was wondering about, if you can discuss it). Maybe it's a good thing that you haven't found a publisher yet, since it gives you the chance to add to it and make necessary changes (like those in the Future Tense spinoff). Anyways, good luck getting it published. Maybe we should invite some publishers to the Gathering to show them that there's a demand!

Sounds good to me. Know any?

The Encyclopedia is not a behind the scenes document. It's currently about cannon. And by the way, it needs a major editing job.
