Some Previously Discussed Stories
The fourth NESFA collection includes "The Star Beast." I considered rereading this story but then found that there is already quite an extensive discussion of it on the blog. See here.
I am able to find less on "The Adventure of the Misplaced Hound," so I expect to reread this story as well as the original version of the title story, "Admiralty."
Rick Katze writes in his Editor's Introduction that he had planned 6 volumes but now expects that there will be at least 7. I cannot suggest, "Continue indefinitely," because I dislike all the duplication of already published stories. I would suggest, "Stop this series now but plan for a Complete Works with non-series short stories reprinted in several volumes in their original publication order."
I now have an agenda, at least two stories to reread and post about, other activities permitting, over the next few days. (Family visit to Preston tomorrow.) Meanwhile, in Latin class, Aeneas confronts Charon in the Underworld.
