News & What's New - May-June 2020

Two more older fanzines
25 Jun 2020
 
As I wrote before several more items were on its way to me. Two of the items are older fanzines, one from 1957 and the other from 1964. They were received this week.

Two also ordered books were sent back. One back to France by me, because I got the wrong printing as was advertised by the book dealer. The other was sent back to Germany by the post office, because my address was not complete on the envelop. That seller will send it to me again, with the full address this time he promised.
I still have to receive more books, but the shipments take longer than usually because of the Covid-19 problems.

Richard Bergeron

The fanzine Skyhook #24, Summer 1957, contains a long letter by Philip José Farmer. In it Phil praises the previous issue and its contents, and made a remark on an error made in Farmer's in that issue published poem "Black Squirrel on Cottonwood Limb's Trip".
You can read this letter online at The Official Philip José Farmer Web Page.

In the fanzine Zenith Speculation #7, December 1964, Charles Platt wrote a critical essay, "The Strange Relations of Philip José Farmer", in which he explores the biological ideas Farmer used in some novels and stories. The cover by Brian McCabe illustrates Farmer's novel Flesh.
By the way, the editor of Zenith Speculation, Peter R. Weston, changed the fanzine's title in 1966 to only Speculation.

Newly received books and a fanzine
13 Jun 2020
 
Some time ago, in February this year, I wrote I could stop collecting as I had received the last missing first printing in my collection, that of The Green Odyssey (1957). Yes, it was the last first printing I was looking for, but not the last item of his work.
The past couple of weeks I received these books and a fanzine, and more are still on its way to me. Most of the newly received ones were already included in the bibliography, but two are 'new' on these pages.

The items are as follows.

A letter in The Patchin Review
10 Jun 2020
 
Charles Platt published in the period 1981-1985 seven issues of his fanzine The Patchin Review (The inside guide to science fiction).
«Because I lived in New York City, and knew all the editors, and also knew most of the writers in the United States and Britain, I felt I was in a position to publish a small magazine of commentary that would be frank about the changes that were occurring and could agitate against some of them. That was my intention in The Patchin Review. I also decided to have some fun by publishing a self-satirical gossip column.», writes Charles Platt in his new introduction for The Complete Patchin Review (2019).


«Right from the start, it caused endless trouble for me.» he writes in the same introduction.

In The Patschin Review Issue #7, the Final Issue, of March 1985 Philip José Farmer wrote a letter, about some of his 'guilty pleasures', his favorite writers, and about the outline he wrote for a novel titled Wild and Weird Clime.

In Issue #5 came the announcement «Also coming up, I hope, will be an article by Philip José Farmer in defense of fantasy», but this one wasn't published, alas.

Ansible Editions published in 2019 all seven issues in The Complete Patschin Review as a free ebook.

Thanks Willem Hettinga for sending me this information!
