Any word on the Averoigne Chronicles?
Any news on when we'll see the Leah Bodine Drake book, Derrick?
So, what's up in 2020? :)
Hi Hippocampus fans, American Fantasy Press is running a Kickstarter that we think many of you will want to get in on.

While you are at the site, if you would like to buy any of our regular in-stock titles, tell us you saw this at Hippocampus Press' page, and we'll give you 50% OFF any in stock items. Until October 1st.
Does anyone know where I can find (in book or Kindle form) Clark Ashton Smith's article on "The Philosophy of the Weird Tale?" I am working on some articles about Smith for Lovecraftian Science and would like to read it. Thank you - Fred.
Very excited to get my contributor's copies of Lovecraft Annual, No. 13 (2019) from S.T. Joshi. I have an article in it called "The Lovecraftian Solar System," which is based on a presentation I gave at the 2017 NecronomiCon!
What’s happening with the collected plays by Lord Dunsany? Joshi spoke about this on his blog a few years ago, and I haven’t heard anything since. Btw, we received our updated copy of the letters of CAS and George Sterling and it looks amazing. Hollanders art is terrific as always. Thanks Derrick for all you do.
There is a review of THE GHOST IN THE CORNER AND OTHER STORIES by Lord Dunsany in the next issue of GREEN BOOK (as well as an article by me revealing previously unknown facts about Lord Dunsany's Nobel Prize nomination). http://www.swanriverpress.ie/greenbook11.html?fbclid=IwAR0DcAmzextUCXol38SbWMgL_Z4q1dnFpaeCkdyAnpeSNPMZLhSMtaicr1w
Hi, is To Rouse Leviathan by Matt Cardin still on track? Do you have an ETA?
S.T. Joshi, scholar of weird literature, addresses "JoshiCon 2018" in New York City on June 22, 2018. Joshi speaks of his relationship with Hippocampus Press, which published his memoir "What is Anything?" and details a possible film about H.P. Lovecraft. Watch here:
Have fun today! :)
Is anyone regretful that LORD OF A VISIBLE WORLD is out of print & sells for hundreds of dollars nowadays? Your prayers may be answered--that is, if you are praying that it may become available.
