With Volume 9 of the Journal in the mail, we’re turning our attention to final editing of the much-expanded version of Journal Volume 4, the Sutree 25th anniversary issue, which will be the Society’s first stand-alone paperback volume and will be entitled You Would Not Believe What Watches: Suttree and Cormac McCarthy’s Knoxville. This volume will include all of the original articles from Journal IV, and will also contain new articles by Lydia Cooper, Bob Gentry, Bryan Giemza, Daniel King, Leslie Worthington, revised material from Peter Josyph and Wes Morgan, and Old Ga…heh, sorry, Rick Wallach. It’s sometimes hard to stay in character, you know?
We’re hoping to have this book finished and ready for sale some time in July. We’re not quite sure of the printing costs yet so we can’t calculate a price for it but we expect it to be in the $25 range for Society members, and $28-30 for non-members. That’s just a guess but I think it’s close.
What we will do, once we have an estimate from our printer, is announce an advance subscription plan for the book that will save our members some additional money if they order the book by a particular date some weeks ahead of publication. We’ll let you all know the advance order price as soon as we have our estimate.
We’re very excited about this new Society venture. This will be a beautiful volume, and as the only book dedicated entirely to the masterpiece of Cormac McCarthy’s Appalachian period, we think it will be an essential volume for all scholars and lovers of the novel and of McCarthy’s work in general.
Good to see it’s more than in the hopper. It’s hopping into publication. Great News! Rick et al, many thanks for all your hard work on this.
