Series Tracker

This is a post whose idea I had a while back and never did, but now I came up with a better approach. Essentially, my plan with themes/series’ lately has been, for the most part, to split them up. My series on A.I. was virtually all consecutive. My unwillingness to post my ’80s series every day for practically a month led to that one halting and restarting. So I figured this would be easy access to other posts for you the reader, and a great reminder for me about what’s in-progress and should be touched upon on occasion.
