before leaving for some three weeks of holidays Im sending you some more reviews of WELTENthey are getting more serious now I believe.
I have just finished testing the computer programs I developed for building up files about orthodox vs. revised chronology. The lists Im enclosing are just samples to demonstrate the possibilities neither the general text nor the definitions should be regarded as final. I have taken a few key words from Lexikon der Aegyptologie as a basis, and though such kinds of works may be especially worthwhile for entries (e.g. the Cambridge Ancient History for references in English), any book or article can be included, of course. The output, of course, can be worked into any kind of listings desired, and the samples Im sending you are showing (1) a list showing a particular authors publications, and where they conflict with your work, or (2) a list that will present to a publisher where his authors should rethink their views; and (3) a list that will show up everybody responsible under a particular key word.
I intend to try this initially with Die Seevölker, sending the contributors to Lexikon der Aegyptologie, whos articles are being involved, a reading copy plus their personal list, with a recapitulation to the publisher at the same time. For the media I expect such listings may have a special appeal for providing definite data about conflicting views on a variety of interesting points.
How is Ramses selling? I hope to see my first copy when in London next week.
Kind regards and friendly greetings, yours
