The links section now has Cuthalion's site listed and a new icon by Hyel.

September 25th: Due to various reasons it became necessary to split the original Pretty Good Year site into four distinct sections. Within the Pretty Good Year section, there is a translation of 'Winter's Road' into Quenya by a reader named Gilly, and a translation of the entire text into German by Cuthalion, which I'm still a little too speechless over to announce properly. The West of the Moon section contains ten previously unarchived stories, nine of which were until now buried in a thread in the pgy livejournal community, and a wholly new story entitled 'Swing'. The new site for pgy-inspired fanfiction, 'Storytellers', contains two new stories by Singe and the debut of Cuthalion as a guest writer, as well as several new art pieces by Hyel.

July 30th: A new 'west' story, 'Winter Witch', and also a short character exploration of Rosie under also the 'west' section. New artwork by Hyel and Omelton, and the following new guest stories: 'Between' by Dana, 'Gather ye Roses', 'Silk and Candlelight' and 'Three for Breakfast' by Princess of Geekland (who also has a new email address), 'Inevitable' and 'Six (revised)' by Singe, plus another look at Delphinium in the 'biographies' list. Also, letters between a Took, a Brandybuck, and a Grubb have been penned by Meli and Molly and Singe, and are under 'Delphinium's Travels' on the guest page.

May 28th - New stories from Janette, 'Changes' and 'Tuckborough Fair', Poppy Hilldweller's 'Bathtime', and Princess of Geekland's 'Famous for its Weddings' series, as well as a Finnish translation of the prologue to Pretty Good Year by Hyel, new drawings from Singe, and the debut of a new artist, Goldilocks. See, now, wasn't that worth tolerating my extremely lax updating skills for a long time?

May 7th - Lovely new images from Singe, Hyel, and Adrienne, and a few tweakages to the guest author page... I don't doubt there are more errors, though, so please let me know when you find them. New guest stories coming very soon!

April 7th: There's now a pgy 'keeper' list (see below) and several new video clips (also see below). There's a new set of descriptions of the Gardners for use by artists in the gallery.
