In the words of astronomer Percival Lowell, upon receiving a telegram from newspaperman William Randolph Hearst reading IS THERE LIFE ON MARS CABLE THOUSAND WORDS SOONEST, I reply:

Post Re: So when does Volume II come out?
And that's enough of that!

Cute but unfortunately accurate. Incidentally, I periodically post updates on issues relating to the bio on the blog of my author site, www.whpattersonjr.com, and the most recent blogpost is about the editing process.

Let's see: David Hartwell started editing on the second volume after Labor Day, and I received the first batch of about 100 pages in mid-February. I received the third batch, chapters 17 and 18, last week, so it's about halfway done with the initial edit.

On a good weekday I can get through 1 or 2 pages of the edit, 4 or 5 pages on a weekend day. Since I wrote the thing at the rate of about 1000 words a day, the edit is taking a lot longer than the original writing.

This means if there are no great interruptions (doubtful), it will take a minimum of 6 months to get through the first pass of the edit. I'm setting it up so that the second-pass through David can simply strike the parts he doesn't want.

I'm also generating the index and list of permissions at the same time. Call it done with the basic stuff by end of the year.

Thanks for the detailed reply. If I read you correctly, don't expect Vol. II for a couple of years.
I must say that Vol. I has given me a whole new perspective on RAH. Interrupted a reread of Stranger for it, and wow does it put that story in a new light!
I enjoyed reading that Robert and Virginia lived in sin in a trailer park in Fort Worth, my natal town, in the late Forties, maybe three years before I was born. Do you know the exact location?

I'm sure there must have been an address on some of the letters from Corson, for example, but I don't seem to have noted them -- strike that:

4921 White Settlement Road, Fort Worth, Texas. That is at least where he picked up his mail. Don't know if that was a trailer park in the late 40's, but he and Ginny did spend several months -- at least four and possibly five, over the winter of 47-48.

I'm curious if you've read The Martian Named Smith?

Is that the essay for the library association? If so, yes.

In fact, according to Google Maps, it appears still to be a trailer court.

No, it's a book/monograph about Stranger I wrote about ten years ago. It unpacks a lot of *stuff* in stranger and has a long concluding appendix about the meaning of character names. A bit has been published since then on the subject of the names, and on the writing chronology, but TMNS has the biggest chunk of information about Stranger(that I know of, at any rate) Available from Nitrosyncretic Press -- or, I believe, from the Heinlein Society now. Haven't heard yet what terms they will sell the stock.

I can vouch for the fact that TMNS is a great read, although 10 years on I'm still trying to understand it. :lol:
