---Word from Hippocampus:
Yes! We do have several new releases.
Our most recent release, the novel SHADOW COAST, by Philip Haldeman received a favorable "starred review" in the April 23, 2007 edition of PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY. This novel is our most mainstream release to date and should be of interest to many customers beyond the usual Hippocampus target audience of diehard Lovecraftians. The novel features a mysterious plot with supernatural overtones, and excellent writing that brings to mind the best of Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood. Retail on this is $15.00.
Then there are the two new hardcover editions: Lovecraft's COLLECTED ESSAYS, Volume 5 and Clark Ashton Smith's COMPLETE POETRY AND TRANSLATIONS, Volume 3, both due by the first weekend in May. The Lovecraft hardcover retails for $40.00 and the Smith for $50.00.
About the same time we will release a book in our Lovecraft's Library which contains two complete novels EXCHANGE OF SOULS and LAZARUS which were an early influence on Lovecraft. The book is laid out like the old "Ace Double" sci-fi paperbacks, where after you read one novel, you turn the book over to read the other one. It's a cool, retro idea which we may do more of, if it meets with good response. Retail price is $15.00.
Also, the first issue of our new horror reviews journal DEAD RECKONINGS will be out in about three weeks. It's edited by ST Joshi and Jack Haringa. This publication is bound like one of our regular paperback books, runs 100 pages and retails for $7.50.
Please advise quantities desired, and thanks as always for your interest in Hippocampus Press.
