Evertype: The Haunting of the Snarkasbord

Postby Evertype » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:38 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of an edition of "The Haunting of the Snarkasbord", written by Alison Tannenbaum, Byron W. Sewell, Charlie Lovett, and August A. Imholtz, Jr, and illustrated by Byron W. Sewell.

From the foreword:

Sometimes a publisher is given a gift for his unbirthday. Not long ago, four noted Carrollians came to me with a proposal for a dark, humorous parody of The Hunting of the Snark concerning what followed the Baker’s vanishing and the Crew’s continued hunt for a snark on Snark Island. How could one refuse?

Alison Tannenbaum wrote the poetry in Snarkasbord: A Crewsome Choice and also wrote notes on Byron W. Sewell’s illustrations for it. An introduction and Gardnerian-style notes have been written by August A. Imholtz, Jr in his inimitable style.

This edition marks the first public publication of the poems “The Booking”, “The Recrewting”, and “The Sailing”—the three “Missing Fits” composed by Charlie Lovett. These were originally written for a secret English Snarkian Society, and were mentioned by Selwyn Goodacre in his “The Listing of the Snark” in Martin Gardner’s final version of The Annotated Hunting of the Snark. Hitherto, they have only ever been seen by the members or guests of the Society.

In addition to his wonderful illustrations, Byron W. Sewell has contributed an original short story, “Forks and Soap”, which tells what happened to the Baker from the viewpoint of the Boojum. Like Lovett’s parodies, this short story has never before been seen by the public; it was issued in a very limited number to his Carrollian friends.

A page with links to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk is available at http://www.evertype.com/books/snarkasbord.html . Bookstores can order copies at a discount from the publisher.
