this came today. so that changes order of things just a little bit. I'm pushing the Machen short story collection back to late Sept//early Oct., because I still want a novel. plus, the novel The Amulet, by McDowell, is one of the first Horror novels I remember reading (and being traumatized by, in a good way), and I loved it, and yet have never returned to the author. that changes now; he's been making the rounds, successfully, among some Friends here, and it's time I joined in the fun!
