DAVIDSON COLLECTION FROM PITSPOPANY PRESS

The boundaries of genre were insufficient to contain Avram Davidson's
writings. To his many works in the science fiction and mystery genres
can now be added a substantial volume assembling writings on Jewish
themes. Everybody Has Somebody in Heaven : Essential Jewish
Tales of the Spirit by Avram Davidson, edited by Jack Dann and
Grania Davidson Davis is forthcoming from Pitspopany Press.  The
book will include poems, stories, and essays from Orthodox Jewish
Life and Commentary, published under the A.A. Davidson byline; a
selection of fantasy tales with Jewish elements; and several previously
unpublished pieces from different points in Davidson's career.
    The volume will include a biographical introduction by Eileen Gunn
and may also include a written Symposium on Avram Davidson and
Jewish Fantasy, led by Jack Dann and Grania Davidson Davis.
Additional participants to date include: Peter Beagle, Carol Carr, Ethan
Davidson, Lisa Goldstein, Richard Lupoff, Barry Malzberg, and Henry
Wessells. (Readers of The Nutmeg Point District Mail will recall that
news of some of Davidson's early Jewish publications first appeared in
Vol. IV, No.2-3.)
