What's New?


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.

19 June 2016
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.

3 January 2016
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.

4 October 2015
Greetings everyone. I have a very brief update for today. This one is courtesy of four people. So I will tell the story here: Cristobal in Spain reported on Paradys that there had been a reprint of the short story "Clockatrice" in the souvenir book for the World Horror Convention in May 2015 which was held in Atlanta this May. There Tanith was given her lifetime achievemnt award but, obviously, did not attend. I emailed Craig Gidney, who was a panelist at the convention, to ask if he could put me in touch with the organizers to see if I could get a copy. He put me in touch with Anya Martin who was a guest not only at that convention but also at the H.P. Lovecraft convention in Providence in August. Anya put me in touch with Lisa Morton, one of the head organizers, who sent me a copy of the souvenir book not only for me but also for John Kaiine. I will be delivering, in person, Tanith's Lifetime Achivement Award this coming November to John. This is what I really love and appreciate about the community of fans and fello writers and how the internet has brought so many people together. So thank you Cristobal, Craig, Anya and Lisa. Your help and genosity is tremendously appreciated!!

4 October 2015
I have one more very brief update. Some of you may have noticed my confusion about the title of the anthology with the new short story "The Return Of Berenice". I was in touch with the editor of the anthology herself, Nancy Kirkpatrick who said that the title should be: nEvermore! Tales Of Murder, Mystery & The Macabre: Neo-Gothic Fiction Inspired By The Imagination Of Edgar Allan Poe. So I fixed the listing with the necessary note and changed the title of the anthology in the index, as well. Thank you very much Nancy for clearing that up for me. More updates soon, I hope.

27 September 2015
Hello all, it's been quite a while since my last update. But, before I begin, I would like to say that September 19th would have been the author's 68th birthday. I hope all the fans throughout the world marked that date. I lit a candle for her. So, anyway, let's get started. I added a listing for the DAW reprint of Shadowfire, which is otherwise known as Vazkor, Son Of Vazkor. This was just released September 1st.

27 September 2015
For my second update I added a listing, a word count, and a summary of the new short story "The Return Of Berenice". This is from the original anthology Nevermore!: Neo-Gothic Fiction Inspired By The Imagination of Edgar Allen Poe, edited by Nancy Kilpatrick and Caro Soles. This was scheduled to come out on October 1st but was released in mid-September. I have, nevertheless, added the issue date of October 1st, to avoid any confusion, though that may not be the best idea in the short term.

27 September 2015
For my last update today I added the listings, word counts, and story summaries for the new collection called Dancing Through The Fire: A Collection Of Stories In Five Moves. According to the desctiption there are four new stories containe within, but there are really 6, one being the authr's prologue, and a poem to finish off the anthology. Please note that the ebook version of this collection has not yet been released but will be at some point and I will add those listings when that happens. This was a large update and an athology which Tanith put together herself towards the end of her life, and that makes it somewhat special. Please stay tuned for more forthcoming updates.

12 July 2015
Hello again. As promised, on thie exceedly warm and steamy day, I have braved the weather to do an update. I have added the listings and story summaries for the two new stories, for Legenda Maris. That is all I have the ability to do today. But I do wish to thank Storm Constantine, as always. for graciously sending me a copy of the book.

12 July 2015
Greetings all. I would have liked to added the stoies from Legenda Maris today but I ran out of time in my day. I do, however, have the time for two very brief updates. Legenda Maris, which Storm Constantine was gracious to send me a copy, will be added next weekend. Anyhow, I wanted everyone to know that I now have the name of the story for the Nevermore!: Tales Of Murder, Mystery, And The Macabre - Neo-Gothic Fiction Inspired By The Imagination Of Edgar Allan Poe collection coming out in October. I had to email the publisher to get the name and they were kind enough to email me back. The name of the story is "The Beauty of Berenice". I have added that to the chronology.

12 July 2015
For my second update, I have added the citations for three obituaries which appeared in the July issue of Locus. One is written by Betsy Wollhein, the other by Shawna McCarthy, and the last by our very own Craig Gidney. The three obituaries are proceeded by a brief bio. I have added the citations for these three to the Seconday Bibliography page. That's all that I have time for today so the rest will have to come next weekend. Until then.

12 July 2015
Lastly, Pat Flannagan found a site from which to download the radio play The Silver Sky. I have downloaded it and will put it on CD-ROM for archival purposes. Pat has contacted me a few times over the years but she ahas really beena great help searching down things since Tanith's death. Thank you very much, Pat.

28 June 2015
Welcome back. I have two brief notices today add. The first is the publication of Legenda Maris, which is a collection of stories about the sea from Immanion Press. This was released a few days ago. There are two new short stories contained within. When I get my copy I will add listings, cover sands, and story summaries. The second forthcoming notice comes from both Craig Gidney and Phil Stevensen-Payne, who let me know that Dancing Through The Fire, which is billed as "Tanith Lee's final collection", will be issued by Fantastic books on September 19, 2015, in order to mark what would have been the author's 68th birthday. There are 12 previously reprinted stories and four new ones. So please look for the adding of a few new things in the upcoming weeks.

21 June 2015
Hello all, I have a few quick updates for today. First, I have added a listing for the reprint of Death Of The Day. This was released by Telos publishing on May the 26th or 27th according to Amazon.

21 June 2015
Seondly, Asma let me know of a short story in the forthcoming anthology Nevermore!: Tales Of Horror, Mystery & The Macabre - Neo-Gothic Fiction Inspired By The Imagination Of Edgar Allan Poe, edited by Nancy Kilpatrick and Carol Soles, forthcoming from Edge Press in July. I looked for a table of contents but only found that it is an original anthology so it has to be a new story. If I find out more I will the name of the story. In the meantime, thank you, as always, to Asma.

7 June 2015
Hello again, everyone. I have been very busy adding links to obituaries to the Biography portion of this bibliography. Thank you to everyone who has written. I have two very brief updates today. I have in my hand the fourtieth edition reprint of The Birthgrave. It is very exciting to see this back in print and every exciting having DAW republish a great deal of her works, including two new books we have never seen before: the first being Earth's Master, which is book six of the Tales From The Flat Earth series, the other called Redder Than Blood, which may be another expanded edition of Red As Blood, Or, Tales Of The Sisters Grimmer. I have looked on the DAW site and there is no schedule of reprinting so we will all just have to keep our eyes peeled. Anyhow, these reprints are very exciting to see and long overdue.

7 June 2015
My second update comes from Siren Songs and Asma Yasmine who let me know back in January of the reprint of "Northern Chess" in the anthology Sisters Of The Revolution: A Feminist Speculative Fiction Anthology edited by Jeff and Ann Vandermeer. So I have added that to the bibliography. I am continuing to work on ebbok listings in the background but I won't necessarily be adding what's new posts for these. So just please consult the listing in which you are interested for more details. Thanks for now to everyone out there for their help.

26 May 2015
Hello all, I have one brief update today, one being a very sad one. But first the not so sad update. Bill Pearson let me know that the short story Ondralume was reprinted in an anthology called The World and the Stars: Dazzling Dazzling Science Fiction and Fantasy. Thanks very much to Bill, as always. Now for the very sad news. You will have, by now, realized that the index page has changed. There is now a picture of the author with her birth and death date. Sadly, Tanith Lee died on Sunday the 24th of May. Your humble bibliographer was honored to have called the author a friend and to have been asked by her to safeguard her literary legacy. What Jim Pattison started I have faithfully continued and I intend to continue for a long time to come. For all of you who have helped me with the bibliography and for all of you who write and say thank you for Daughter of the Night, I am eternally grateful and I very much intend to continue this work to help her fans locate her work. If you are religious at all please say a little prayer or light a candle for her. Please keep John Kaiine, her husband, in your thoughts. I am not a religious person but my thoughts and condolences and my wishes for his healing go out to him very strongly. And I know that all of you will do the same. Also please note that I am looking for links to obnline obituaries, so if you find any please email me the links. Many thanks.

12 April 2015
Hello all. I have a fairly large update today. My first update is to add the listings for the novella collection A Different City, which was published by Immanion in March. There are three stories contained within, all which take place in a city called Marcheval: "Not Stopping at Heaven", "Idoll", and "The Portrait in Gray". I do believe that it was several years ago that the author gave me typed copy of the third story as I remebered it vividly when I reas the copy in the book. And yes, as Storm Constantine wrote, it is quite chilling. I have added listings, a cover scan, a word count and story summaries for each. Thanks, as always, to Storm Constantine for having a copy of the book sent to me.

12 April 2015
Secondly, I have added the listings for the new short story collection Blood 20: Tales Of Vampire Horror publishded by Telos Publishing. While mostly a reprint anthology, there are five new stories contained within: "On Reflection", "Night Visitor", "Vhone", "Real And Vire", and "On Reflection: The Epilogue". This collection was printed in ho9nor of Tanith's appearance at Eastercon in early April. I have added a listing, a cover scan, listings for the stories and summaries for the new ones.

12 April 2015
The last update for today comes from Asma who let me know that the fantastic story "Magritte's Secret Agent" was just reprinted in the anthology called Mermaids And Other Mysteries Of the Deep, edited by Paula Guran and printed by prime books. So I have added a listing for that one too. As always, many thanks to Asma. I need to work on entering all of the ebooks from the SF Gateway and some others. Please be patient with me here. I will get these done eventually.

22 February 2015
Hello all. I have another update with forthcoming notices today. Immanion Press will be publishing two short story collections in the next few months. The first is called A Different City and includes three novellas which take place in an imaginary French city called Marcheval. The second is collection of stories about the sea called Legenda Maris. Craig Gidney let me know about these. I have no concrete dates as to when these will be out but when I do I will let you know.

11 January 2015
Happy 2015, everyone. I have a good sized update today. I have received my copy of the short story collection entitled Phantasya and I have added all the stories and summaries for the four new ones. I wanted to thank Bill Pearson again for alerting me to this one.

11 January 2015
Craig Gidney let me know that Tanith will be a guest of honor at Eastercon, which will take plave at the Park Inn Heathrow, in the UK on April 3-6, 2015. To commemorate this occasion there will be a new anthology of Vampire stories called Blood Twenty and a reprint of Death Of The Day, both by Telos Publishing which is based in Kent. These two will be available at the convention. To any of you who may go this, I would appreciate a report back and any pictures you would like to share.

11 January 2015
Lastly, I had to write Storm Constantine to ask why what seemed to be a forthcoming ebook was no longer available. Well, it seems that the forthcoming reprints of Tanith's DAW novels and collections will be the US-Canada purveyor of ebooks, so I Have had to remove these few Immanion Press ebooks. Again, I wish to thank Storm Constantine for all that she has done to publish Tanith's works.
