. . . has finally arrived. I received my copies in the mail today, so everyone who pre-ordered should be receiving theirs soon. At 528 pages, it’s the fattest of the three volumes. It’ll probably take at least a week to get all the packages in the mail, but I hope it’s worth the wait.
Next from the Foundation will be The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard, loaded with practically every known piece of verse that Howard wrote. The only items not included are certain variant versions of his poems that are only slightly different from others. These are explained in the “Notes” section. The volume will have both Title and First Line Indexes, and more than 700 poems. It’ll be about that many pages as well. It’s all edited, and I’m in the process of laying it out. I’m sure our printer takes some time off during the holidays, so look for Collected Poetry early next year.
