    My understanding was that The Passenger was due this year, but a bit earlier. About the other piece, I had heard nothing about its publication schedule. I’m one of the lucky ones who happened to get into the archives almost immediately after they became available for research and got to read some of those misfiled pages from what, for lack of any more information, I’ll call the “first draft.” I was very pleased with what I read but due to the understanding between McCarthy and the collection, and to my reluctance to get anyone into trouble over it, unfortunately, I can’t discuss what I read. All I can say is that it struck me as worth waiting for the rest of it. Feel free to go ahead and get excited.

    I wonder how and why Picador in the UK is able to release information to The Sunday Times about McCarthy’s two linked novels to be released this fall while Random House sits mute.

    Good question. But then, if the British could keep secrets, we never would have known that they planned to withdraw from Yorktown and we might still be eating horrible food.

    Webmaster said the McCarthys are “a long-lived bunch.” Certainly true of Cormac and his older sisters. Don’t know about brother Dennis. He must be somewhere around 70 or more; another younger brother (Bill?) died some yrs. ago.

    My interest here is in the ages of Cormac’s parents when they died. Wes?

    Why the interest? Well, I love to read the daily obits to find out how long folks kicked around in this vale of tears afore they kicked their buckets. Also, lota them obit memorials are gassers.

    Passenger, don’t you hear me?
    Destination seen unclearly
    What is a man deep down inside
    But a raging beast
    With nothing to hide

    Well, here’s some news, of a sorts.

    Amazon Uk (Which, for whatever reason, always lists books before its US counterpart) has these two entries…

    Untitled McCarthy 14 Mme – 1 Sept 2016
    Macmillan Hardbacks – 9780330457422

    and

    Untitled McCarthy 15 Mme – 13 Oct 2016
    Macmillan Hardbacks – 9780330457446

    Years ago, when The Road came out, I posted the publication date here first. It’s hard to remember, but I think it was probably from the same site, though it might have been from the publisher. Anyways, I thought it might be reprints, but they probably wouldn’t be in hardback, and I don’t think they’d have new ISBNs.

    That’s all I got.

    Wow.. Here’s hoping that gets pushed up, and substantially. Still, the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.
