Complete Poetry & Translations in paperback

I happened to browse Hippocampus Press' website and, surprise surprise, I spot they've finally re-published the Complete Poetry & Translations in paperback

[www.hippocampuspress.com]

It took far too long, but it gives those of us who missed it last time round to nab this item again. I thought I'd let you know. It seems like their international shipping prices have also come down from whence last I looked, so I might be able to afford it this time. Anyway, I thought I'd let those who care know.

I don't think it is actually out yet -- at the last minute some previously unknown (but published) poems by CAS were located, but that's a good reason for delay.

That is good news - even better if they include the prose-poems too :)

I can't spot where it says pre-order on the page, but there's a lot of text so I've probably missed it. Anyway, I'll be please to finally get hold of these, especially the translations.

S. T. mentions these new poems in my latest YouTube video with him -- he is quite excited about the discovery of these poems! I think they still hope to bring out the volumes this year.

Yes I saw that! :) The discoverer is an FB friend of mine, so I actually knew it first. :)

I'm SO glad I actually get to get my hands on these poems, and with new additions! I just regret not being able to get a hold of hardcover editions, they would go great with the Nightshade volumes.

Greetings, Eldritch Fans!

I was indeed wondering whether this "Complete Poetry and Translations" reprint does in fact include :

- Poems in Prose,

- The Fugitive Poems, (the six booklets)

I was unable to locate a TOC of the first edition. I assume that some Eldritch Dark members would have a copy in their hands and may feel inclined to share this dark secret with the rest of us KlarkAshton pilgrims...

Thank you in advance for your time.

The Poems in Prose were not included. They will be reprinted in the mammoth CAS collection forthcoming from Centipede Press.

"Mammoth CAS collection?!" I was under the impression that this was going to be a relatively cheap, which, considering Centipede's prices, I assumed relatively slim volume of prose poems, art and other odds and ends... Am I wrong?

Probably under $100, but it will contain the prose poems, the essays, letters, memoirs by others, and 50 pages of art, so it will probably be quite large.

It does sound great, although I have to say I'm starting to feel the strain to my financial sanity caused by the terrifying new cosmic perspective I have gained while absorbing/affording CAS' oeuvre... Will it ever end, I wonder... In fairness this is probably more of a luxury than an essential (only because I'm lucky enough to own Nostalgia of the Unknown already), although it seems a pity that CAS' prose-poems will be locked away in a luxury item. I hope Joshi includes a few in the Penguin collection. Will any prose-poems not included in Nostalgia of the Unknown be included or is it too soon to say?

Apparently, the only prose-poem not included in Nostalgia of the Unknown is Sadastor, already present in The Collected Fantasies, Vol. 1.

As for myself, not owning Nostalgia, I wonder if I should go for the Arkham Poems in Prose, going for around $200 here and there...

Hard financial times for us CAS fans!

He will. :)

I have checked the prose poem section, but I don't recall what is included. Were the prose poems from Strange Shadows included in Nostalgia of the Unknown? If no, then this book will have "new" stuff. Also, this book will not use the versions used in Nostalgia of the Unknowbn, IIRC. (Scott, is that right?)

No doubt I'll get this Centipede Press book, with the (in)
Complete Poetry and Translations that I will order sometime over Xmas I hope, that should fix me for CAS for sometime to come. I am quite excited re the Penguin collection. I'd love to hear what is being considered... Maybe we should start our own wish list... Anyway, I hope Joshi doesn't compartmentalize the prose and poetry too strictly. Ideally I'd like to see CAS' poetry and prose given equal place, even placed alternately like the Dedalus Books anthology of Russian Decadence, rather than have a few poems tucked away at the back.
