That sounds interesting. Is there a link with a picture of the cover?

Karnos, I managed to isolate a nice image of the cover on my computer, but my ignorance prevents me from presenting it in this post by itself without the commercial trappings. Ah, well...

Re: T.E.D. Klein

I've recently came across this post by accident:

Quote
I’m a British film director, and I bought the film rights to T.E.D. Klein’s classic novella “Children Of The Kingdom” last year – from the author himself. I managed to get in touch with him through a labyrinthine series of emails to small press publishers, and he is an awesome guy, still represented by his legendary agent Kirby MacAuley. From things he mentioned in his emails I think Ted is a staff writer or editor for GQ magazine. But anyway, “Children Of The Kingdom” is now in development as a feature film, and I hope to do it proud.

I'm curious but given the way the film industry works, I hope it will one day see the light of day.

I'm bumping this thread, because I came across the podcast Nolon cites separately today and found it fascinating. (Lucky I searched TLO for the appropriate Klein thread to post it in first, huh?)

The original recording must have been made in the late 80s I'd guess. Lots of good stuff including his time on Twilight Zone magazine, his weird fiction, a long section on Machen, remarks on Leiber. And his "forthcoming" novel Night Town... (over thirty long years ago!)

It's interesting to put a voice to the email exchange I had with him ten or so years ago.

Oh, go listen. You know you want to.

Re: T.E.D. Klein

My late friend, Jack Lewis and his girl Alice, met Klein at a Twilight Zone sponsored event in the 80's. Klein was, according to Jack, a very pleasant guy who signed his copy of The Ceremonies as well as posed with them for a couple of photographs.
On the same trip Jack scared the hell out of Elliott Gould who just happened to be in the wrong restaurant at the wrong time.

Jack was like that. God bless him.

Re: T.E.D. Klein

Bumping this thread rather than creating a new one. Found a used but basically mint copy of Klein's Reassuring Tales at Borderland's Books in San Francisco. I've been looking for this book forever. Here's where it gets sweet... I got the book for $34! Plus, it's a signed and lettered copy (one of 26). I was freaking out. See the pic links below.

The guy running the shop was super cool and very knowledgeable. He had several Ligotti printings and made some good recommendations (Laird Barron being one of them). Overall, I was VERY impressed with the shop and their selection. Go and give them some love next time you're in SF. Also, if you're into metal, Aquarius Records down the street is great too!

Re: T.E.D. Klein

Great find, unknown. I hope to visit Borderlands when I next visit the bay area.
I got hold of a numbered, former library copy myself; having removed the offending stickers and such, it can pass as minimally harmed.
Also, Reassuring or not, your Tales seems to be a Publisher's Copy, which is neither numbered or lettered (or both, if you like). Neither better or worse, in my labyrinthine eyes.
