I've loaded a bunch of the stories into the the Archive. It's just the book module with some custom fields. I'm learning a few things about node templates, and discovered that exactly what I wanted to do (list taxonomy terms by category with the node) had already been done and the snippet was readily available. Sweet.
Started working on the site theme. It's based to a great extent on the previous site theme, lunar. I've titled this one millesime, and it'll probably be a work in progress for a good long time. But, since Drupal's structure lends itself to a much more coherent theming process, the site should have a much more consistent look.
