My 2013 Lovecraft Annual has yet to arrive, but Wilum Pugmire has perused a copy and winkled out a nugget ‘o news, on a new S.T. Joshi volume…

The Variorum Lovecraft, to be publish’d by Hippocampus Press in four volumes. […] could begin publication as early as next year, I hope to present all the relevant textual variants for all the stories that Lovecraft wrote over his short literary career. […] may include the printing of passages from handwritten or typed manuscripts (chiefly the former) that were excised as Lovecraft was writing the story or as he performed a subsequent revision of it.”

Sounds like the ideal candidate for an interactive electronic edition?

News also that the new Klinger annotated edition of Lovecraft…

“will contain all of the original art that illustrated Lovecraft’s works in Weird Tales.”
