It's Official - I'm Crazy.

I have a strange need to gather and organize data.
As you can see on my sidebar I have a few databases which list the contents of The Best American Short Stories and Glimmer Train magazine.
Now, I have now initiated my largest and possibly longest project yet.
I'm going to tackle the fiction published in The New Yorker. I've done the math and this could take well over a year IF I am able to make 30 entries into the sheet a day.

I had to recalculate my completion date after I discovered that in earlier issues there is no table of contents AND there are several pieces of fiction per issue.

I am working backwards from 2011 and I have completed through January 2008. I've only been at it a few days so I am satisfied with my progress so far.

Here is a screen shot of my sheet - I don't plan on making this public on Google Docs until it is complete...and then I will ask for help in pointing out errors and missed stories.
