One bookseller (at least) is listing a book by Brendan Connell called "The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children", to be published by Prime Books in 2004. However, I can't find it listed on the Prime website. Is there such a book? And if not, will it come into being if I preorder it?

Hi Bill,

This book was originally scheduled to come out this year, though I am not sure it will as I have another book coming out from Prime first, called "The Translation of Father Torturo".

Still, I know Sean has been working on both of these, so maybe the Polycrates book will make it out before the end of the year. The best way to find out though is to E-mail Sean at prime and ask him what the time frame is if you pre-order.

As far as the contents of this book: here is the table of contents:

HISTORIES:

The Life of Polycrates
The Flatterer
The Last Mermaid

SCENES FROM CITY LIFE:

Collapsing Claude
Mesh of Veins
The Maker of Fine Instruments

PSYCHOANALYTICAL STUDIES:

The Skin Collector
The Putrimanaic
The Despoiler

SCNES FROM PRIVATE LIFE:

Sirens
The Nasty Truth About Dentists
The Woman of Paper
Kullulu

SCENES FROM COUNTRY LIFE:

Flit
Orach
Wiggles

I'm guessing (based on Google) that I'm that bookseller. This was on a list of books Sean gave me months ago. Never did receive a publication date.

I've updated the description on our site with your table of contents.

Thanks,

-Neil
