Now, Ningauble, when replying in that previous thread mentioned that "Hippocampus Press has plans for a complete series of HPL's letters, in 20-25 volumes" - although I can't find anything regarding this anywhere else.
It has been announced only in the EODapa. That's the plan or wish, anyway -- we shall have to wait and see whether it is doable.
This would indeed be quite a mammoth undertaking. One wonders how long such a project would take to completion.
Quite some time, I guess. If the CAS/HPL correspondence is published when planned, six volumes will have been released by 2010. But I'm a patient man. I've been waiting for Tierney's Drums of Chaos
