Sigh.

Sigh.

My only copy of this book. Sort of.

I found it in a used bookstore in my area (now long gone). Got home and started to read it and discovered a middle section of SEVERAL pages missing. Never been able to find a replacement. Years later an altered version came out in a collection.

Anyone know of plans to reprint this??

It was already reprinted in the Farmer collection VENUS ON THE HALF-SHALL AND OTHERS (Subterranean Press, 2008) and will be reprinted by Titan Books in mid-2011.

My story for Moonstone's SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE CROSSOVERS CASEBOOK is a semi-sequel (not involving Greystoke, to which Moonstone does not have the rights; we don't want to get into copyright violation territory).

Sadly, Subterranean Press's Venus on the Half-Sell is sold out and I missed it. :(

I'll have to keep an eye out for the SH book from Moonstone. Still awaiting the new Avenger books from them.

Thanks for your interest in the Holmes book from Moonstone.

As for the Avenger books from Moonstone, it sounds like you may be under the impression that the second and third volume are late; they are not. The second volume was only just formally announced and solicited for March 2011.

Not quite. Just that I've been hearing of them coming for so long that I keep hoping we'd get a announcement for release.

Yes, it has been announced on Bill Thom's Coming Attractions and on All Pulp.

Best,
