My thanks to Martin for a blog comment pointing out that the new volumes of Lovecraft’s letters, Miscellaneous Letters and Letters to Woodburn Harris and Others, appear to be shipping. I had spotted Miscellaneous Letters listing on Abe a week ago, usually a sign that a new book is shipping. But I wasn’t sure. On looking at Amazon UK today, I see they have “20th October” and appear to be willing to ship.

However, note that neither book can yet ship to an Amazon delivery locker in the UK. I assume this means Amazon has no ready-to-go UK warehouse stock. Other older volumes in the series can be shipped to your UK Amazon locker, so I assume that Amazon pre-prints some print-on-demand books to hold in its warehouses for fast shipping. It is thus likely waiting for stock on the new books. Of course, you can also order from Hippocampus, and may also find combo deals there with other items.

Congratulations to all concerned in producing these volumes, and for swinging into sight of the ‘finishing-line’ for the series. According to S.T. Joshi’s blog post on the matter, the final volumes left to come are now…

* Letters to Hyman Bradofsky and Others

* Letters with Frank Belknap Long (2 Vols.)

+ the single volume mega-index to all the published volumes of letters, presumably also including volumes published by others (e.g. O Fortunate Floridian, the Barlow letters from Florida University Press).
