OT: Extraordinary Editions - MR PYE

joulukuu 7, 2022, 9:06 am

My copy of The Book of Ebenezer Le Page from Extraordinary Editions was delivered in the UK this morning.
The good news is that the publisher intends to do a version of Mervyn Peake's MR PYE next year.
If interested you can contact Martin Morgan at mm@extraordinaryeditions.com

No connection with the company, just a satisfied customer.

Nice, thank you! Looking forward to getting my copy of Le Page here in the US. Definitely interested in the Peake title as well.

That's wonderful news! I'm assuming it will use Peake's original illustrations which will make it an immediate order for me.

Any images of the mr Pye or details included? I bought the half leather and that doesn't ship until after year end

I've emailed Martin about the Peake book, will share anything he responds with.

My Ebenezer will be after Christmas.

I read Gormenghast this year thought the first two books were good, but the third was weak. Could someone tell me how MR PYE compares with Gormenghast?

>6 Shadekeep: Did you get any response from Martin? I emailed him in early March, but haven't heard anything yet.

>8 Dr.Fiddy: In mid-Feb I received an email that I was on the email list, but I have heard nothing since then

I believe it is still very much a work in progress, so may not be much in the way of detail available yet.

>8 Dr.Fiddy: Nothing further here in terms of direct contact, but I am on the list. I get the feeling that EE is a deliberate and considerate press, and that they take a lot of time to get things just right before making announcements. Hopefully we'll hear something soon on this!
