Another very complimentary review of Rosemary Pardoe's "THE BLACK PILGRIMAGE & OTHER EXPLORATIONS: Essays on Supernatural Fiction" (ISBN 978-0-9572962-7-5) has been published in Rue Morgue magazine #184.

The reviewer Dejan Ognjanovic in part says,

"...scholarly in its treatment of a vast variety of sources and incisive in its penetrating understanding of James’ work. Perhaps the best essay in the book, about “The Black Pilgrimage” (a fictional esoteric concept invented by James in his story “Count Magnus”), enlightens with its unexpected but logical allusions to the occult works of Aleister Crowley, Jack Parsons and others".

The book is available from all the usual outlets or direct from the publisher at:

Promote Your Projects / James Wade's Arkham House book that never was...

Fans of August Derleth and Arkham House may be interested in an Arkham House book that never was… James Wade (1930-1983) proposed a collection of his stories for AH (Derleth had already published some of the author’s stories and poems in anthologies). There was a Foreword written by Fritz Leiber.

Now, much expanded from that original concept, “Such Things May Be: Collected Writings” has been put together by editor Edward P. Berglund. Published by Shadow Publishing, this major retrospective contains 25 short stories, over 20 poems and more than 30 essays and reviews in this major retrospective of the author. Included are tales from Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos: The Deep Ones, A Darker Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Silence of Erika Zann; darkly supernatural terror from the Midwest, The Nightingale Floors, The Pursuer, The Elevator, Snow in the City; Weird tales set in Korea: The Temple of the Fox, Time After Time.

A very good review of the James Wade collection, by Mario Guslandi, has been posted on the SFRevu website.

"In short, an exhaustive and long due homage to an unjustly forgotten author in the field of dark fiction".

I've just finished watching season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So, to be fair to Margaret Atwood, I now plan to read the book.

Hi Grum! I also overuse parenthesis (especially in speech, strangely)—but sometimes hide the fact with commas and em-dashes. Good to know there are fellow-addicts out here.
