Upcoming HE Works

Postby biglou » Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:12 am

Hello and best wishes to all Webderlanders!

Harlan’s recent mention of his upcoming works has prompted me to review my (VERY) informal listing of upcoming HE works. Was curious if anybody here might know if I am missing anything? Not really concerned with stuff mentioned 10 or 20 years ago, just stuff that is recent and appears to be certain. Again, this is just a personal list -- Not intended to be distributed.

Any help or info would be greatly appreciated. I hope the list helps a couple of you – but I doubt it;)

Thanks in advance and again, my best to all.

biglou it takes a lot of nerve to post an item in this BB that actually has something to do Harlan Ellison. :wink: The rest of us try to avoid that at all costs. :lol:

As a proud owner of the SubPress edition of DEATHBIRD I can testify that they do magnificent work. FLINTLOCK is available for pre-order already.

The editions of Thomas Ligotti's work they've done so far are fine possessions but dangit if I didn't miss the new edition of Jack Vance's DYING EARTH which is already sold out in preorder. In other words, if you're interested don't wait. SubPress stuff goes fast.

Ezra Lb,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I have the SubPress Deathbird as well -- I agree that it is fantastic. And yes, I've yet to see one of their books that disappoint.

Also, I ordered Flintlock as soon as it was available -- Looking forward to this!

Thanks again for the interest. I do appreciate it.

Maybe this is the future of the book? In this digital world the days of the mass produced printed book may be numbered but there will always be a niche for the specialty press of limited editions of fine books, themselves beautiful objects of value. Not a terrible fate.

Ezra,

You may be right -- print's not going anywhere soon but will definitely continue to evolve.

On the HE Facebook page, someone brought up a similar listing of new projects. One item I did not include on my initial list was a new collection HE has "sitting" waiting to be completed. I'll add it to my informal list. If anyone has anything to add to my below list, please let me know. I doubt there is though as Doug Lane replied on the Facebook page and if anyone would know, it's him.

Thanks for any interest and assistance.

Not sure if something has happened to the PS Publishing edition of ELLISON WONDERLAND or not - last flare they sent up was a year ago, as mentioned in an email re-posted on the GoodReads Ellison discussion group -
ELLISON WONDERLAND

And almost finally, another surprise—but very welcome—call from Harlan Ellison preceded by just one day the arrival in our offices of 11 stories that have not yet been collected. . . indeed, they haven’t seen the light of day since they appeared in a variety of magazines and under a variety of noms de plume more than half a century ago.

‘Again, the Cat Prowls’
’Backlash’
’March of the Yellow Death’
’The Big Trance'
’Too Anxious To Murder’
’Blind Date’

’Boss of the Big House’
’The Cave of Miracles’
’The Cheese Stands Alone’
’Children of Chaos’
’Damn the Metal Moon’

So, the plan is we’ll be publishing two editions of ELLISON WONDERLAND and the deluxe edition will be a slipcased and signed two-book set. The title of the second book has not yet been decided and artwork duties have still to be assigned. (Hey, we gotta eat ya know!)


- A current search of the PS Publishing website for Harlan Ellison reveals no hits.
- "The Cheese Stands Alone" is in STALKING THE NIGHTMARE (unless he has an earlier story by the same name)
- "Backlash!" is in ROUGH BEASTS

The balance remain uncollected, and this bunch (with alterations) my yet show up as described; then again, I haven't seen a TOC for AGAIN HONORABLE WHOREDOM, which could be telling. There's so much still-uncollected material that both - and five other books - could be accommodated. With ease.

But the fact that PS got as far as the proof stage on this book in 2007, and then didn't release it (and reassigned the ISBN number to a different PS project) does give one pause. Based on my copy of the proof, it was just originally going to be the book as-is.

And I won't lie - I did a little happy dance when I first heard Subterranean was picking up FINGERPRINTS. Tim's been shoving that boulder up the hill forever.

Doug,

Thanks very much for the info. I was also curious about the PS Ellison Wonderland - looked like it was heading towards completion then, nothing.

Been dying for FINGEPRINTS for years -- would be so helpful for a newbie HE collector like me.

Back at you FrankChurch.

Best to all,

Lou

Lou,

I've just read your post of 6 March 2014. The stories listed as appearing in the second PS Publishing book were specifically omitted from Honorable Whoredom and its ilk, so aside from the two duplications you've already mentioned, there will be no more to my knowledge.
