MUSE is a specialized database for authors and agents to organize the circulation of manuscripts to publishers, especially useful when sending multiple or simultaneous submissions. Keep track of queries, submissions, publishers' responses, acceptances and publications, as well as current mailings. Review the status of any manuscript at any publisher at any time. Mail merge the address in the files with appropriate form letters and print letters on one printer and envelopes on another.

This file contains any late announcements since the current edition of the MUSES.DOC, the manual. ====================================================================== Where these explanation files refer to DISK?.EXE, your copy may have DISK?V??.EXE to indicate a version change. You must enter the full name of the *.EXE files as you have it in your copy, or you may change the names to the generic names used in the explanations. ====================================================================== If you have used an earlier version of MUSES, first read REPLACE.DOC, lest you destroy work you have already done. ====================================================================== All MUSE?.exe files will work on either the two main program disks, but you change disk less frequently if you have space to use this combination: the DISK?.EXE files, namely: Disk 1 : MUSE.EXE MUSE1.EXE and MUSE3.EXE Disk 2 : MUSE2.EXE MUSE4.EXE (may remove after you have installed) The DISK?.EXE files put MUSE3.EXE on disk 2, so that you will have room for it if you use MS-DOS versions 3.0 or higher. Earlier versions leave enough room for you to put it on disk 1, where it works more efficiently. In this version, MUSES.DOC (the manual) appears in DISK3.EXE, not in DISK2.EXE as earlier. You may put it anywhere else you find room for it. After you print it, you may prefer to save it only with your original copies for back-up. ============================================================== If you want to test MUSES on your hard disk, check your ms-dos directory for ASSIGN and APPEND (from MS-DOS 3.0+) as ways to make muses treat your hard disk drive as if it is the A: drive which the distributed installation requires. Later you will want to install it for your hard drive properly, but this is a quick way to preview.
This file speaks only to those who have used earlier versions: =================================================================== I hope that you will enjoy this new version (3.5) of MUSES. First you must extract the files. See instructions in HOW-TO on either distribution disk. If you have never installed an earlier version, you do not need this informatino. Begin afresh with this version. See HOW-TO and the manual (MUSES.DOC) If you have used an earlier version, you should copy from these new disks ONLY the files extracted from DISK1.EXE and DISK2.EXE. Do NOT copy the data files if you have already installed your own data, lest you lose the work that you have done. You will need to look at HEAD and HEADPENN in DISK3.EXE as a model for creating your own heading files, now required for all letter options. WARNING: You will need to run SZ.BAT on each of your own data files (on disk 2) to strip any ^Z (control Z) markers that older versions of MUSES routinely added to ends of files. Otherwise, the new version will not work properly. This takes only a few seconds. Copy SZ.BAT to your data disk (#3). Then enter SZ ? For ?, substitute the name of each data file (that is, the single letter files for publishers on hold; and the D? files for circulation data; and any bibliographical data files you have created with the B option from the main menu.) You must also move your all your *.LET to the DATA DISK (#3?) and not keep them with MUSE3 as earlier versions required. You should copy SORT.EXE (from your own MS-DOS disk) to your data disk and then it from your two program disks. Alternatively, it should be in your PATH. Store these new originals in a safe place. ====================================================================== Several users have helped me to provide this new version. I welcome all suggestions.
