Hi Liz!
Hope you're well! And Happy Thanksgiving!!!
I was just curious about the hold up with Frankensteins Bride and Saffron & Brimstone.
I've had them ordered on Amazon for quite a while and haven't received either. The release date just seems to be forever pushed back, Any word on when they will be available?
Thanks!

Hi Mark,

S&B should be out Dec. 4 (I think). Not sure what the holdp was with it, I guess it was somewhere in the printing process. It may even be out this week. I HOPE it's not out any later than that.

PADNORA'S BRIDE is held up because I haven't finished writing it yet. Sorry sorry sorry! I had too many deadlines backed up at the same time, kind of like an overloaded airport and me a very hapless air traffic controller.

Vicisssitudes of the writing life.

On the upside, a short novel called ILLYRIA will be out any day now from PS Publishing. This is a book that I wrote at white heat over 20 days while sick in October. It's the culmination, in a weird way, of so many things I've been striving to write since 1974. I had not intended to write it, but when the muse calls -- actually, more like when the muse demands -- one answers.

Again my sincere apologies for the holdup. My New Year's Resolution will be not to be late!

Liz

I finally got a shipping notice for Saffron & Brimstone yesterday so it is indeed out! Happy Solstice to me!

Hooray!

Thinking of Solstice -- there was a great article yesterday in the UK Guardian about Renaissance paintings of snow and the so-called Little Ice Age.

Interesting to think that we now live in a world where winter will be an anomaly. It certainly is here in Maine, sad to say.

That's a great article; I just watched Solaris again a few days ago so it's interesting to know the background of the painting that gets all those long, lingering closeups!

I heard from M Press's publicist and she says she's sending me the book (and Paul's) this week! Hooray!

Ellen, you can't get anything past us message-board eavesdroppers. What book is Paul's? Could it be a new book by Paul Witcover?

By the way, Elizabeth, can't wait to finally read your new collection!

Kelly <g> Yup. It's Paul's Dracula novel. I hear it's terrific.

Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. I read his Dracula novel and, while I didn't find it terrific, really dug the scenes of WWI trench warfare.

I heard that those scenes are much more horrifying than the scenes with Dracula in them.
