Lost Tales Volume 3 Shipping Update

Hello everyone,

Rita has completed the first batch of chapbooks and they will begin shipping in a couple of days. The first hardbacks are drying under weight and will begin shipping next week.  I will send out email notifications to each of you letting you know your copy is on its way.  The books are done in small batches at a time, numbered and shipped based on your order date.

We have posted new pictures of the finished book on the website page; I think Rita has done a splendid job (as always); we really like the "feel" and look of the book.

That's all for now

Ever Closer

Lost Tales Volume 3 is now in the binding stage and my part of the work is done.  Rita is busily cutting cloth and making cases for the books.  The printing for the Sime illustration looks great and we're so excited to have the painting as part of the book.  These latest stories are quiet and reflective, and of the Earth and the fantastic hidden within its borders, and we think the Sime fits that quality very nicely.

We will post more images of the book soon on the main page and of course let you know when the edition begins shipping.  I'm now in the beginning phase of working on "The Age of Ending" Poseidonis Cycle II by Clark Ashton Smith.  That's all for now, take care one and all.

Sneak Preview Lost Tales Vol 3

We're getting really close.  The printing of this book is finished, Mike is hand folding each page and trimming each illustration.  And the process of hand binding begins Monday.

It looks like we will be able to begin shipping the first books in mid October on schedule.  And we will continue shipping the preordered volumes as they become available.

We're still taking preorders at the special rate, so there is still time to take advantage of that price.

We're excited about this latest offering of rare and unpublished Dunsany stories and hope you will be too.
