Early in 2010, I received a manuscript of ghost stories in Danish from an enthusiastic member of The August Derleth Society, one Estrid Balslev. Although I couldn’t understand a work of it, I suggested to the author in an e-mail, that if she translated it into English, I would submit to the editorial board — The Sacred Six for consideration. The English translation arrived a couple of weeks ago as an E-mail attachment. John Robert Colombo has reviewed the manuscript for esl’s (English as Second Language) and this process is now complete. Estrid’s colleage Neils Reiter has send along a proposed cover illustration and here it is. Patricia Visneskie has almost completed the cover, and the text is ready to go to press. I am waiting for CIP data from Ottawa.
