Update: Bit Behind

Tim’s been having some problems with his editing schedule and editing computer, so we’re a little bit behind. We hope to get caught up starting in early May. Sorry for the delay.

Smith and Lovecraft’s Letters To Be Collected Along With Sterling’s Poetry

Some exciting news from S.T. Joshi’s June 17th post:

David E. Schultz and I are working hard on two large projects for Hippocampus Press: the Complete Poetry of George Sterling in 3 volumes, and the joint correspondence of H. P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith in 2 volumes. We are also wrestling with getting a paperback edition of Smith’s Complete Poetry and Translations ready for publication; we may be including one or two poems by Smith that escaped us when we prepared the hardcover edition.

I’m excited for this on multiple fronts. The HPL/CAS letters should be great. Since we all own various volumes of their letters, we’ve enjoyed discovering the playful back-and-forth, which we demonstrated in our two interludes. I can’t wait to have that spelled out in front of me.

I don’t know how much Sterling’s poetry will cost, but it could give us an insight into CAS’s writings and his admiration for the man. And a new CAS volume is always exciting, even if it’s the poetry…which I’m less interested in than the fiction.
