For those who are fans of Howard Waldrop, he will be Guest of Honor at the DC area convention Capclave (14-16 October 2005).

Everyone who joins Capclave will receive a free copy of a booklet containing two never-before-published stories, written just for Capclave. Howard says each story will be about 10,000 words each. The booklets will be available only to Capclave members (for those who can't make it, yes, we will mail you your copy), and only one booklet per membership. The stories will be written around the cover artwork by Carol Emshwiller. So Howard gets an Ace Double with Emsh covers.

Any leftover copies go to Howard. The club is not interested in selling books post con.

Other GoHs are Patrick & Teresa Nielsen Hayden.

I'm chairing this, and after 25 years of chairing cons I think this will be the last one. A quarter century of *fun* ! ! !

" Is there an 'oh my god, I can't go, but I have to have that chapbook' membership?"

Yes! "The booklets will be available only to Capclave members (for those who can't make it, yes, we will mail you your copy)" So, through the end of May, $30.00 gets you this item. Membership goes up to some ammount afterwards.

I expect the unsigned copies to be the rare ones. (I always thought it would be amusing to a limited edition where all but, say, 10 copies were signed.)

So, the chapbook was delayed. These things happen. There was some hope to have them finished and in the mail before calendar year end. I still haven't seen my copy. Has anyone else? Does anyone know if there's an expected publication date? Is there some forum that gives information on this? Just want to know.

(Thanks, Ellen, for publishing the stories. It was a treat to read them, but I still want to see the book)

Also of interest to Waldrop fans, I saw on the Asimov's forum that Howard Who? is being republished.

Here is the link found in the first post of that thread:
