    Gavin Smith announced the other day on his mailing list that he will be getting the pb of the annotated Case of Charles Dexter Ward around the end of the month. It will cost $20. There is no price or release date for the hc yet, as far as I know, but it can't be far off now.

    I just finished proofing vol. 1 of the set -- stories only, not the notes. It will be a magnificent volume: all the revisions from "The Green Meadow" to "The Mound", with "Four O'Clock" by Sonia Greene and "The Automatic Executioner" and "A Sacrifice to Science" by Gustav Adolph Danziger (Adolphe de Castro) in an appendix.

    Glad to see those included, as they will give people a taste of what HPL was working with on the two stories by 'Dolph... and "Four O'Clock", though not a good story, nonetheless has a sort of hypnotic eeriness to it in places, and certainly shows Grandpa's influence, however little it may bear of his actual revising....

    I've finish'd reading the Afterword of S. T.'s new Annotated edition of Ward in ye pb edition, and it is wonderful. This new edition of the novel has 203 annotations as opposed to 170 in ye Penguin Classics printing of ye novel. The book looks wonderful, with a number of great photos at the back. I am waiting for the hardcover edition, to be published next month, to read the actual novel. I want to hold that hardcover edition in mine hand and then sink into that world as ne'er before.

    I had some input on the notes and the afterword -- I identified "humhums", almost identified "shendsoy", and found out when William Lippitt Mauran died.

    Of interest only to Swedes, but still "forthcoming Lovecraftian items":

    * Självbiografiskt (ellerströms) -- a collection of autobiographical essays and literary criticism by HPL; probably in December
    * Sarnaths undergång (Bakhåll) -- a collection of four stories; in June next year
    * Om övernaturlig skräck i litteraturen (h:ström) -- "Supernatural Horror in Literature"; spring 2010
    * A big 500-page selection of Sam J. Lundwall's Lovecraft translations, updated and corrected

    Yours truly had a tentacle in all of these. :)

    It's a scary-looking language you have there...

    You have no idea... You could lose Sanity points trying to learn the rules governing adjective use in Swedish. :)

    A MEANS TO FREEDOM--THE LETTERS OF H. P. LOVECRAFT AND ROBERT E. HOWARD is now available in trade paperback from Hippocampus Press, $55 for the two volumes. It has a print run of 1,000 copies, but I wouldn't postpone getting it as they won't be reprinted again.

    S. T. Joshi just announced in his blog that he has started work on a novel using Lovecraft as a character. :) He has written four chapters so far.

    I suppose that I should buy those two volumes, if I am able to purchase them online. Will they be on Amazon dot com?
