New Gilbert is Here

Volume 10 Number 4 (Issue 77) has arrived. I haven't had much chance to read it, but I've glanced through it and read Dailey's Tremendous Trifles. It looks like a pretty good issue. For now, a few book notices:

1. The back cover has an advertisement for new book about GKC: Thinking Backward, Looking Forward, by Stephen R. L. Clark (too many names there). Anyone hear any good reviews?

2. S.P. Dailey says one of the best GKC anthologies is back in print. As I Was Saying: A Chesterton Reader. It might be a good introduction to those who want to read Chesterton but don't, you know, want to read read Chesterton.

3. Barnes & Noble Publishing recently released GKC's The Ball and the Cross, the latest volume in their Library of Essential Reading series. Dailey says it's a handsome paperback. Only $7.95. Interesting but not shocking: The link in this paragraph is NOT to the Barnes & Noble edition. The BN edition apparently is not available at Amazon. The rivalry continues!

You can find a very good review on page 40 of the magazine that just arrived in your mailbox. :-)

Oh, and don't forget to mention that B&N's new edition of TBatC includes an introduction by Sean Dailey. :-D

ps. How did your surgury go?

Oh! Forgot to add: the B&N edition of The Ball and the Cross is published by Barnes and Noble publishing, so it is only available at Barnes & Noble stores or on their webpage. Do a search for their Library of Essential Reading series, and then a search for books in that series published in December 2006.

The cutting went well. Yesterday was rough, but I'm walking about today. Tender, but upright; fatigued, but awake.
