What's New?


15 September 2018
Hello everyone. I have a very brief uppdate for today. I want to acknowlege two people's contributions to the bibliography today. The first is by Bill Pearson who sent me a copy of the 1992 (?) book club edition of Dark Dance which is not supposed to have been printed. And the second mention goes to Marjo Kauppi in Finland who found a few Finnish bibliographical references in her library which mention Tanith Lee's works. I have added those to the Seconday Bibliography. I have always said this to the fans and readers all over the world who send email to thank me for me work: this bibliography is a group effort and relies on contributions from Tanih's fans all over the world. It is because of them who have have made Daughter of the Night such a success. So thank you.

26 August 2018
I have a very brief update for today. I added a listing and a cover scan for the Immanion Press reprint of Darkness, I, whcih was released earlier this month. Storm Constinatine graciously sent me copies, as she always does. And so, I thank her for that. Please stay tune for me updates later.

24 June 2018
I have a very brief update for today. I added a listing and a cover scan for the DAW re-release of Companions On The Road & The Winter Players: Two Novellas. This came out in early June. Please bear in mind that this publication is misleading. While it contains both novellas, only ompanions On The Road is indicated on the cover and on the title page. Only in the table of contents are both publications listed. So please make a note of that.

13 May 2018
Hello again, and thank you for checking into this update. I have a a few updates today. The first one is a fun one. With thanks to Craig Gidney, I have added this little gem. It's a song by Mans Wieslander called "Barron to Wehunt" and name checks many, many weird fiction authors, Tanith Lee among them. It's very cool. Please check it out.

13 May 2018
Secondly, I want to thank Storm Constantine and Immanion Press for sending me copies of Venus Burning: Realms: The Collected Short Stories From ' Realms Of Fantasy'. This was released in late April and collects all but two of the stories (one a brief reading list by Tanith Lee and the other a non-fiction piece, both of which Storm has graciously sent to me in pdf form). I have added a listing for the omnibus anthology, a cover scan, and listings for all the individual stories contained within.

13 May 2018
Lastly, I want to announce that my fellow librarian (librarians rule!!!), Nicole Platania, has been brought on board to help me with the the ebooks in the bibliography. I have needed help here for a lot of years and I finally asked her and, happily, she accepted, much to my relief. I am not getting any younger, regardless, and she will also be able to edit and add to the bibliography should anything happen to me. So, thank you from the bottom of my little heart. You cannot imagine just how much I appreciate her help.

4 March 2018
Happy March, everyone. I have a very brief updates for today. For my first one, I am adding a listing for the Immanion Press for their repint of Personal Darkness. It's good to have this back in print, after so many years.

1 January 2018
Hello eveyone and happy new year. I hope that 2018 will bring health and happiness to all the readers of Daughter of the Night and to Tanith Lee fans, wherever they may be in the world. I have a few updates today so let's begin. First, I have added a listing, a cover scan and listing for the individual stories in the NewCon Press festschrift anthology Tanith By Choice. If you will remember this was released in September of last year but, for a few reasons, I was not able to add it until now. I want to thank Ian Whates, the man behind NewCon Press for entrusting me with the copy proofing of the raw files and for sending me copies of the book.

1 January 2018
For my second update I added a listing and a cover scan for the Immanion Press reissue of Madame Two Swords. It's great to have this back in print. The only release of this previously was a limited edition of 600 copies which came out in 1988 and now fetches high prices on the used market. This has long been one of my favorite works by Tanith and I am glad that more people will be able to read this now.

1 January 2018
For my last update today I added a listing and a cover scan for the Immanion Press reissue of Dark Dance. The Blood Opera series is a favorite of Tanith Lee fans all over the world and it's great to see these back in print. Expect the rest to come out from Immanion in 2018.

17 December 2017
Hello all. I have a very brief update for today. I added a listing and a cover scan foe the DAW reissue of The White Serpent: A Novel Of Vis. This was released earlier this month but I have only had the time for an update now. Though the new releases from Immanion and NewCon Press are on their way to me, I believe that this will be my last update for the year. When I see you next it will be January, 2018.

21 October 2017
I have some really super cool news for today's update! I found the first Tanith Lee translation in the Chinese language. Yiying helped me to puzzle this one out and informed me that it is in simplified Chinese characters. So thank you, Yiying. So I have added a listing for my first Chinese translation for The Silver Metal Lover. This was released in 2013. Yiying had a look around for me and it seems to be the only one so far and has promised to be on the lookout for others. I hope there will be. That's really my only update for today. More later. Thanks for checking this one out.

9 October 2017
Hello everyone, it's been some time but I have an update for you today so let's get started, shall we? My first task was to add a listing in the Seconday References for "Weird Beauty: The Weird Fiction of Tanith Lee" in Weird Ficton Review by Craig Gidney.

9 October 2017
I also added a listing, and cover art page for the Immanion Press reprint of Thirty-Four by Tanith Lee writing as Esther Garber. This has just been re-released. The original Egerton House edition from 2004 is very much out of print and selling for significant amounts of money. I want to thank Storm, as always, for being a good guardian of Tanith's literary legacy and for sending me copies of this latest release from Immanion.

10 August 2017
Hello, everyone ... again. I have another very brief update today. I have received the new DAW reprint of Anackire and I have added a listing, and a cover scan for the book.

10 August 2017
The second update I have is about a new reprint anthology from NewCon Press called Tanith By Choice. It features 12 stories chosen by those who knew the author: Storm Constantine, Craig Gidney, Mavis Haut, Stephen Jones, John Kaiine (Tanith’s widower), Vera Nazarian, Allison Rich (your humble bibliographer), Sarah Singleton, Kari Sperring, Sam Stone, Cecilia Dart-Thornton, Freda Warrington, Nadia van der Westhuizen, and Ian Whates. Each story is accompanied by a note from the person responsible for selecting it explaining why this tale means so much to them. The stories included in the anthology are: After The Guillotine, Bite-Me-Not Or, Fleur De Fur, Cold Fire, The Crow, The Ghost Of The Clock, The Gorgon, The Isle Is Full Of Noises, Jedella Ghost, Medra, Red As Blood, Taken At His Word, and White As Sin, Now. This will be out in two simultaneous editons: a limited hardcover edition, which will be signed, and a trade paperback edition, released on October 10th. So that is my update for today. I might be a bit silent for a while because I forsee nothing coming out until this NewCon Press anthology. Thank you and see you soon, I hope.

16 July 2017
Hello, everyone. I have a brief update today. I have added a listing for the reprint of "A Hero At The Gates" in Swords Against Darkness, edited by Paula Guran. This was released in ealy July from Prime Books.

Hello, everyone. Happy Summer. I have a quick update today. I have received a copy of The Weird Tales Of Tanith Lee from Storm Constantine at Immanion Press and added a listing, a scan and all the hyperlinks for the printed anthology and the ebook. This anthology collects the stories printed in Weird Tales, some of which have only ever appeared in the magazine and never before anthologized. Highly recommended!!

7 May 2017
Hello, everyone. I have a very brief update for today. I added the novel and the separate storief of Night's Sorceries: A Book Of The Flat Earth. which was released on May 2nd from DAW. Please note, however, whereas the other Flat Earth Series reprints had intorductions by the author, this one does not, for whatever reason. There are a few anthologies coming up with Tanith Lee stories in them next month, so please look for those. Thanks. See everyone, soon.

9 April 2017
Happy Spring to everyone in the northern hempshere. To all of you in the southern hemisphere, happy Winter. I have a hairly large updpate for today. So, for my first update, I have added a listing for the new DAW reprint of Delirium's Mistress. This was just released about a week ago. And, as with the previous rereleases, DAW has done a beautiful job.

9 April 2017
I have also added the other major DAW release which came out this month. Redder Than Blood is a reissue of Red As Blood, Or, Tales From The Sisters Grimmer but a wholely new anthology of reprinted reworked fairy tales, of which two (not three as the volumes purports) are unpublished. I have added a listing, a cover scan, and two summaries for the unpublsihed stories. It was also released for the Kindle.

9 April 2017
My last update is thanks to Pat in Florida and Craig Gidney. They both alerted me to a really lovely web stoory by Genevieve Valentine on March 26th called "Tale As Old As Time: The Dark Appeal of 'Beauty And The Beast'", on the National Public Radio Website. This story mentions Tanith's love of fairy tales, the Redder Than Blood anthology from DAW, and the new collection of folklore stories entitled Beauty and the Beast: Classic Tales About Animal Brides and Grooms from Around the World by MariaTatar, published by Penguin Books. I have added that referece to the Secondary References page. There will likely be another update next month, so see you soon.

14 March 2017
Hello again, everyone. I have a very brief update today. I received in the mail the new DAW reprint of Delirium's Mistress and, perhaps more exciting, Redder Than Blood, also from DAW, come out next month.

14 March 2017
My other update today is courtesy of Craig Gidney who let me know that the e-book of Animate Objects (Expanded Edition), which was released by Immanion last September, is finally out. So I added the listings for that one. Many thanks to Craig, as always. Stay tuned for another update next month.

16 January 2017
Happy February, everyone. I have a really exciting update today!! I can now happily report that Tanith's works have been translated into twenty-one languages. Cristian found a translation in his native language, Catalan, of "Red As Blood". tranlated under the title "Vermella Com La Sang". I have, therefore, made a new language category for my translation page. Catalan is spoken in the north west region of Spain and is really its own language. Please note that I have kept the Spanish translations simply as Spanish ones, as I cannot go and change all of the listings and text I have entered heretofore, so please understand that. I don't want to get poltical here, so I will just leave it at that. However, I am so pleased at this. And, as always, many thanks and petons to Cristian!!

16 January 2017
Hello once again. I hope your collective new years are off to very good starts! I have a very brief update for today.I located on Ebay an anthology called First Fantasies: Famous First Stories Of Fantasy Fiction Masters with the story "The Demoness" included. This turned out to be a chapbook with six stories which was issued free to subscribers of the now defunct magazine Realms of fantrasy in 2001. So I snabbed that one up and now it's been added. Interestingly enough, a few days later Patty from Paradys alterted me to another copy which popped up on Enay. So thank you, Patty, for being vigilant with listing lacking from the bibliography. It is very much appreciated.

1 January 2017
Hello and happy new year everyone wherever in the world you may be. I have a few brief updates for today. The first comes from Cristian in Spain who has let me know of abother Spanish translation which I did not have indexed inthe boibliography. This one came out in October of 20015: "Eustace" (October). I found the anthology and purchased it and I have it in hand. As always, multas gracias and petons, Cristian.

1 January 2017
My second brief update comes from Craig. He let me know that one of the DAW reissues is coming out in the new year. From there I found a few more. To see what these I invite you to consult the latest cheonology page. DAW seems to be quickening their pace with re-releasing these books and that is a nice thing to see. More later. For now, I wish all of you a very happy 2017 full of health and peace.

6 November 2016
Hello everyone. I have another very quick update for today. Today I have added a listing and a cover page fror the DAW Books reissue of Death's Master. This was just released on November 1st. It is alao available as an ebook from DAW and includes an introdction by the author which was written in 2009. More later.

29 October 2016
A very quick announcement today. I really had aspirations to be one of the last 50 people on planet earth without a Facebook account. But it has come to this. As some of you may have noticed, the Paradys Forum which was attached to this website became corrupted. My webhost could not fix it - and even though the posts were there, I could not make them display and I would have had to rebuild. Enter Facebook. This is really the easiest and most pain free solution and will expand the group even more. The Facebook forum is now located here. It was built in the middle of this week with help from Nicole my co-moderator on the old forum and we are already 14 people, with more to come soon, I hope. So please visit there for updates on Tanith stuff and for updates about the bibliography. As before I hope that you will post notices arout forthcoming publications, reprints, and other Tanith things. It's a brave new world for me, I guess - and it kinf od had to be, I suppose. More later.

2 October 2016
Well, my friends, it's done. As far as I know I have now added ALL of the Japanese translations to the bibliography. If I have missed anything or if you see an erroneous hyperlink, please let me know. I think I have checked them all but I might have missed a few. My head is swimming a bit. The odyssey of collection the Japanese translations has been a really fun one for me. The books they produce in Japan are really quite beautiful and I can now focus on collecting the German translations which remain. I can also continue to really push to get all of these ebooks in the bibliography. But, for today, I am done, done, and done.

2 October 2016
Another few updates for today, everyone. Firstly, Ricardo Santos sent me the name of the translator of Bons Modos À Mesa (Table Manners), a Portuguese translation, appeared in Imortal, Histórias De Amor Eterno, which was originally published as Immortal: Love Stories With Bite in 2010. Her name ia Carolina Caires Cooelho. Again, I want to thank Ricardo for sending the information about that Portuguese translation. If anyone sees any more I have missed please contact me. Obrigado, Richardo.

2 October 2016
My second bit of news is really cool. I have managed to collect and enter all of the Japanese translations which are separate publications. I have yet to enter the contributions to books and periodicals but I will get there soon. I am really excited to have finally achieved this and I hope that there will be more. If anyone sees any which I have missed, please email me and let me know. Having completed the Japanese translation, I can now begin to work on collecting the German translations I have not found. I am really grateful to those people I have acknowledged who have helped me get to this point and also the Google translate application!! There will be more news later. Happy October!!

25 September 2016
I have two pieces of news today. Firstly, Ricardo Santos wrote me to let me know of a translation of which I had previously been unaware. Bons Modos À Mesa (Table Manners), a Portuguese translation, appeared in Imortal, Histórias De Amor Eterno, which was originally published as Immortal: Love Stories With Bite in 2010, as edited by P.C. Cast. I need one more pice of information for my listing (the name of the translator) but for now I have added that listing. Obrigado, Ricardo!!

25 September 2016
My sesond piece of news comes from Craig Gidney. Craig let me know that the short story "Burn Her", which was printed in ancing Through The Fire: A Collection Of Stories In Five Moves was nominated for Washington (D.C.) Science Fiction Association's Small Press Award. So I have added that piece of information to the bibliography as well. As always, thank you, Craig.

17 September 2016
Hello again. I have two updates today. First, Storm Constantine sent me a copy of the Animate Objects (Expanded Paperback Edition). This has just come out this week. I have added a listing, a cover scan and all the hyperlinks for the short stories. Again, my appreciation goes out to Storm Constantine for sendine me a copy.

17 September 2016
My second update is also thanks to Storm Constantine. A new anthology of original stories was released by Immanion Press called Dark in the Day. It contains a story called "The Beast And The Beauty". Storm also sent me a copy of this anthology. And, as always, I thank her very much. Incidentally, she did all the illustrations for this anthology, as well as editing it.

11 September 2016
Hello all, again it has been some time since I wrote. I have two breif updates today. I wanted to add a recent reprint of the short story "I Bring You Forever" which was reprinted in the anthology Myriad Lands 2: Beyond The Edge by Guardbridge Books. I want to thank the publisher and editor, David Stokes, for emailing me and letting me know about its publication.

11 September 2016
My second update is thanks to Marjo Kauppi in Finland who let me know of an unrecorded reprint of "The Sky-Green Blues", which was released way back in October of 2000 in The Mammoth Book Of Best New Science Fiction: 13th Annual Collection, edited by Gardner Dozois. So I added that one. Well spotted Marjo, and many thanks, as always.

11 September 2016
Lastly, I wanted to mention again that DAW is going to be reissuing Death's Master on November 1, as well as publising an expanded edition of Red As Blood, Or, Tales Of The Sisters Grimmer called Redder Than Blood. This will be coming out on April 1 of next year. I want to thank Craig Gidney, as always, for letting me know about this one.

Hello all, it's been some time since my last update. Today my major update was to add a listing for the DAW Books reprint of Night's Master. These DAW reprints are also now only starting to be released as ebooks so I am adding listings for those. I have been adding other ebook reprints. You can find those in the Chronology for 2016. I have loads more ebook listings to add, so please be patient with me regarding this truly Herculean endeavor!! More to come later.

24 March 2016
Today I have a small update on a sad anniversary. A year to the day this year, Tanith Lee passed away. She is not forgotten, far from it. I have a very brief update today to mark the day. Firstly Craig Gidney let me know that Dancing Through The Fire: A Collection Of Stories In Five Moves has been nominated for a Locus Award. I made a notation of that in the listing. Secondly Ryan sent me an email alerting me to some forthcoming dates for the next DAW reprints. You will find those in the Chronology for 2016. That's really all I have to say for today. I am going to light a candle for Tanith tonight to that energy out into the universe. Until soon.

7 February 2016
It's a been a month or so since my last update. I have two very brief things to add today. Firstly, I have added a listing for a reprint of Under Fog (The Wreckers) in Obsidian: A Decade Of Horror Stories By Women, edited by Ian Whates. Please note that this appears as an e-book only publication and is available from the usual suspects.

7 February 2016
Secondly, I have added the DAW reprint editiono of Hunting The White Witch, which, of course, is better known as The Quest For The White Witch and forms the thrid volume of the The Birthgrave Trilogy. This was just rereleased on February 2. I have added the listing, and a scan. More later.

18 January 2016
Hello again, everyone. I have a very brief update today. Amazon listed the contents of the forthcoming New Con Press e-book only anthology Obsidian: A Decade Of Horror Stories By Women. The story is Under Fog (The Wreckers). So I have added that the chronology. Again, this ebook will be released on January 29.

Happy new year, everyone. I have a few brief updates for today. The main one is the addition of Night's Neices: The Legacy of Tanith Lee a festschrift volume in honor of Tanith Lee which was edited by Storm Constantine and published by Immanion press at the very end of last year. The volume is described in the secondary bibliography and contains no stories by the author herself. It is a beautiful production. I have added the contents, and a cover scan of the volume. Again, I want to thank Storm Constatine for sending me a copy of the book.

3 January 2016
There will be a story, title as yet unknown in unknown Obsidian: A Decade Of Horror Stories By Women forthcoming from New Con Press, January 29. The listing is present in Amazon but a table of contents is not yet up. Also Craig Gidney informs me that the Lionwolf Trilogy and the The Secret Books Of Paradys will be released in ebook format by Open Road Media in February. They don't yet seem to appear on Amazon but I will look closer to the relewase date for those.
