Ariadne, Awake! [quote: A critic for Kirkus Reviews called the book a "dramatic introduction to a fascinating myth," ]
The Princess and the God (a version of the Cupid and Psyche myth told in Psyche's voice) [quote: A contributor for Kirkus Reviews thought this novel was "one of Orgel's most lyrical, compelling works, . . . an epic love story at its center and adventure running through it like a stream." ]
We Goddesses: Athena, Aphrodite, Hera (in which the goddesses tell their stories)
My Mother's Daughter: Four Greek Goddesses Speak (featuring the tales of Leto, Artemis, Demeter, and Persephone) [quote: For a critic writing in Kirkus Reviews, the result was "Xena: Warrior Princess, crossed with soap opera." The same reviewer, while noting that Orgel was attempting to "revitalize the appeal of these goddesses," thought that the result of her efforts "falls a bit flat." ]

None of his books are easily understood as sf, though two of his earlier tales involve journeys in space: in The Missing Prince (1896), a Pierrot character descends to Earth from the Moon; and the protagonists of The Mandarin's Kite; Or, Little Tsu-Foo and Another Boy (1900) travel to the world of Pars in a solar system where the planets are linked by electric cables.

1993 reports of Twain's letter to Underhill (by the way, 1893 "early version" of the story) [96] [97]

April 1904: [Note.---I translated a portion of this diary some years ago, and a friend of mine printed a few copies in an incomplete form, but the public never got them. Since then I have deciphered some more of Adam's hieroglyphics, and think he has now become sufficiently important as a public character to justify this publication.---M. T.]

revision cuts some of Saturday p95 and p15, namely all of "There seems to be too much legislation, too much fussing, and fixing, and tidying up, and not enough of the better-let-well-enough-alone policy. [Mem.—Must keep that sort of opinion to myself.]"
cut some Mon p97/98 and p29, namely all but the first five words of "It seems a good idea, in a region where good ideas are conspicuously scarce. [Mem.—Must keep this sort of remarks private.]"

"[JCH]'s new story for the young ... will contain a description of night life on a Southern plantation, and a chapter on "The Secrets of the Swamp", written from the point of view of the Negro, which tends to resolve all things into their elements by means of impersonation, the swamp losing in the process its topographical and geological features, and becoming a living, breathing, moving Thing." -- The Critic: a Weekly Review of Literature and the Arts (US weekly) 1897-09-11 p28 "Houghton, Mifflin & Co."


Predates The Story of Aaron. "It is the picture of the swamp life of a fugitive slave, but Aaron was more than a slave" --an Arab, superior in this way and that. Not merely a Harris invention, "there were several notable instances of similar characters in middle Georgia."
Rich Hudspeth, the teacher, is a version of William H. Seward [later a Republican Party leader and U.S. Secretary of State under Lincoln and Johnson], who spent several years in Putnam County, where the story is set. His knowledge of the south, and related sentiments, are rooted in the featured Abercrombie plantation, per the story.

-- review by Alfred C. Newell Atlanta Constitution 1897-10-17 p16

[232] The Scotsman 1897-10-18 p4 "Christmas Books" (London and York: Harper Brothers) Beside Aaron's friends and helpers, including animal story-tellers of book 3, "almost the most real and important personality is the Swamp--the great untracked canebrake on the Oconee river in Georgia, where Aaron, as a runaway slave, finds refuge." "great knowledge of the old plantation life and of negro and white character in the South, are to be had"

"With 24 full-page illustrations by Oliver Herford. Square 8vo."

Questions raised by The Painted Wall

  • Pu Songling as co-author; what is the criterion?
Pu Songling like Brothers Grimm, and unlike H.C. Andersen, is credited with collecting folktales; folklorist rather than writer of literary fairy tales
Would it matter if Songling were an oral historian, naming particular folk who told him the tales? Songling as editor/author of a collection or anthology whose oral history subjects should be named as authors

further note on Kirkus Review of first ed.

The strongly negative review (certainly bottom 5% of more than 100 Kirkus reviews I have read) begins with several lines (until the ellipsis) about the heart of the final chapter in this first edition. O'Brien wrote an alternative, much shorter final chapter for the first British edition. They appear as the final two chapters, p248-59 and p260-63, in a later U.S. edition (Collier Books, 1988).

Ursula K. Le Guin


Earthsea Le Guin displays the opening Earthsea Map (c) 2001 by UKL --but what does that mean re its origin? The Folio Society 2015 edition Le Guin features this new edition now David Mitchell on Earthsea – a rival to Tolkien and George RR Martin

Add Pub done

(Note to Moderator) "This is the correct David Mitchell per "About the introducer"; LeGuin links a recent article/review by Mitchell in The Guardian "David Mitchell on Earthsea – a rival to Tolkien and George RR Martin" [Martin=Westeros] but we don't do anything with that as far as I know. The last line weakly supports year 2015 for the ignorant such as me; may actually date the selection for those who know the newspaper Books section well."

Indeed, Le Guin links this article as if it were the Introduction verbatim.

btw Mitchell: "Earthsea is a fantasy world, and proud of it, mapped by its creator in 1966–7 on a large sheet of butcher’s paper with crayons in a house full of young children."

From a glance at a friend's copy of the book I know that it includes a new essay by Le Guin ("Afterword" or whatever), which notes that the illustrations by Lupton are the first to match her Earthsea (not "whitewash"), or first since the first ed. woodcuts (woodcuts too coarse for whitewash imo).

The Independent // Obituary: Peter Boston // Alan Powers // Tuesday 30 November 1999

first 3 pars

A BOY holds a lantern in the bows of a boat, rowed by an old man between the trees of a flooded garden, to a tall single-gabled house beyond. This image, the cover to the original edition of The Children of Green Knowe, was drawn by Peter Boston as one of the illustrations to the first children's story written by his mother, Lucy Boston, in 1954. The fictional boy, Tolly, was based on himself.

More Green Knowe books were published, up to The Stones of Green Knowe (1976), all with Peter's atmospheric but sharply detailed line drawings and scraperboards. He also illustrated works by his mother outside the Green Knowe canon, such as The Sea Egg (1967), and drew the jackets for her adult novels Yew Hall (1954) and Persephone (1969). All his illustrations showed an understanding of the narrative immediacy of the texts, and help the reader to enter their world of imagination and deeper meaning.

The house which inspired them was the Manor, Hemingford Grey, a rare Norman stone house which Lucy Boston bought shortly before the outbreak of war in 1939. Peter, her only child, was at King's College, Cambridge, reading Architecture, to which he had transferred from Engineering. Peter's father, Harold Boston, left his wife in 1935, and Peter shared his time between them. Lucy went to Austria and Italy to study painting but returned to England, taking lodgings in King's Parade to be near her son. They worked on the Manor together, pulling away later accretions to the house with their own hands, guided by instinct, and aware of the palpable presences in its rooms which later inspired the books.

Barnes updated her Narnia illustrations in 1999 or so, at least by coloring them. I recall reading that U.S. editions had included fewer illustrations, so that the appearance of entirely new illustrations in the 1999 set may be an illusion for American eyes only.
