    Curiosity was framed. Ignorance killed the cat.
    My B&N Complete Fiction has arrived. Yes it has silver edges and a purple ribbon. Just started reading it and am now reading Polaris. Yes I know I've read them before but it's a wonderful book. Well done Martin. It's gorgeous.

    Thanks! :) But really, I don't think the credit belongs to me. B&N came through beautifully in the end.

    Perhaps, and they do deserve credit for reissuing it in corrected form. But without your efforts, this would not have been possible, either. Credit where credit is due, I think....

    First of all, cheers to You Mr Andersson for the splendid work!

    Could someone confirm whether the edition sold on Amazon.co.uk is the corrected one?

    Thank you very much! :)

    By now, it should be. If possible, specify that you want silvered page edges and a purple ribbon.

    Just to be sure I tried asking the store directly, and to my positive surprise, they answered almost as swiftly as You did (thanks for that btw!).
    So now I can personally confirm, that thankfully it's indeed the corrected edition. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

    I'm still a bit torn though, since the completionist/perfectionist in me wants both the complete collection, and the annotations contained in the Penguin editions. Oh woe is me :p

    As a side note, apparently a "new" error slipped through - the Contents page lists an "About the Author" section on p. 1099, which is actually missing (it was there in the previous edition). Time for another reprint? ;)

    Heh... That's what I did -- got them all, that is.

    Yup, I know about that. I pointed it out to Stefan D., and he replied:

    I don't know if the ebook has the corrected text or not. It just came to my mind that perhaps it hasn't been checked. If it is the old corrupted text it really needs to be updated.

    Hi all,

    I'm very new to Lovecraft, although having been a horror fan for over 25 years now I still find it surprising that I'm yet to read a Lovecraft story.

    I've recently finished these Lovecraft inspired graphic novels:

    The Courtyard and Neonomicon by Alan Moore
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1592911307/?tag=brite-21

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1592910602/?tag=brite-21

    At The Mountains of Madness by Lovecraft and Ian Culbard

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1906838127/?tag=brite-21

    I'm currently reading The Lovecraft Anthology I by Lovecraft and Dan Lockwood, with The Lovecraft Anthology II next up.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1906838283/?tag=brite-21

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1906838437/?tag=brite-21

    I'm really enjoying the graphic novels and thought they'd be a good way of introducing me to Lovecraft before going for the full hit. So once I've finished these I'm going to start on the Gollancz Commemorative Edition of Necronomicon The Best Wierd Tales of H.P. Lovecraft:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0575081562/?tag=brite-21

    Have any of you read this edition and do you recommend it? From what I can gather it contains the majority of Lovecraft's most popular works, plus with it being huge, leather bound and illustrated it looks very impressive!

    Any thoughts guys on my route into Lovecraft?

    Cheers
    Crooksy

    Yes, it is worth it. The B&N book is complete and has the corrected texts, and now that almost all the typos have been flushed out it is the most useful ed.
    The Gollancz book looks pretty, but it is missing many stories, and it is not based on the corrected texts (it's still got "air out" for "an ant" in "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath", for example). In other words, it is a waste of cash, but it looks nice on your shelf (I've got it myself).

    (You may want to wait until late September/October; there should be a new printing of the B&N book around then).

    I bought the 2011 edition. I haven't personally checked for edits but it says that there are corrections in this edition on the internet.
