Songs of a Dead Dreamer
            Albuquerque, NM:  Silver Scarab Press, 1985  [trade paperback]
            [300 copies in trade paperback. Illustrated by Harry O. Morris. Issued in March 1986. Note: some bibliographies, including a previous version of this one, state that the Silver Scarab Press edition was published in two forms, 250 copies in trade paperback, and 50 hardcovers. This hardcover edition is frequently rumored, though never seen, and the author himself has informed me that "Dead Dreamer came out in a 300-copy edition, all trade paperbacks".  The book was apparently not published until March 1986.  A printed postcard the publisher, announcing that the book is now available, has been observed bearing the postmark 25 March 1986.]

Thanks for making this available, Brian. I have found it an invaluable resource. And thanks to Doug, too, for all the hard work. I'm thrilled to see this bibliography is now updated to the present month.

Re: Thomas Ligotti: A Bibliography

Seven years have nearly passed, and quite a bit of things have happened too, considering this bibliography. I doubt if this is to be updated anytime soon; has anyone been in contact with Mr. Anderson?

Or is there perhaps some other compilation in which the more recent publications & reprints have been recorded?

Just saying, other people wondering about this?

edit: and I just stumbled onto bendk's illustrated bibliography, which seems a tad bit more fresh
Nevertheless...

Re: Thomas Ligotti: A Bibliography

That's a good question. I would love to see an updated version of Ligotti's bibliography regardless of who would be willing to compile it.

Dear Ligottians,

Does anyone know if this was eventually published?

I clearly remember the first title of the series "Three Things They Will Never Tell You" available for sale.

I know the contents of Teatro Grottesco from Durtro include "Things They Will Never Tell You" in the section Dead Dreams which collects the whole cycle.

Many thanks in advance for more information.

Re: Thomas Ligotti: A Bibliography

I don't mean to distract from Slawek's query, but I just noticed a few inaccuracies in the story appearances.

"Three Scientists" ["One Thousand Painful Variations Performed upon Divers Creatures
Undergoing the Treatment of Dr. Moreau, Humanist"; "The Excruciating Final
Days of Dr. Henry Jekyll, Englishman"; and "The Agonizing Resurrection of Victor Frankenstein, Citizen of Geneva", see under individual titles]

They are listed as first appearing in the Silver Scarab edition of SOADD (1985). These stories originally appeared in Grimoire #1 (1982).

Also, the Moreau story was published in the fanzine Animality (1982).
