Subject: (urth) Tracking Down the Hits

Thanks to mantis, John Barach (whose bibliography I've cut/pasted from
below) and all the others who helped recommend uncollected Wolfe shorts.

Here's my list of most of the shorts that got recommended by someone, with
a start at trying to order them by how easy they would be to get:

* Game in the Pope's Head
* The Boy Who Hooked the Sun
        The Year's Best Fantasy: Second Annual Collection, ed. Ellen
                Datlow & Terri Windling, St. Martin's, 1989

These two are clear winners: multiple recommendations, two in the same
collection, and I'm pretty sure my library has this book.

* Loco Parentis, Again, Dangerous Visions, ed. Harlan Ellison,
                Doubleday, 1972.  

This anthology is pretty common.  In fact, I thought I'd read it.  Is
"Loco Parentis" about a boy in a treehouse?

* The Tale of the Four Accused, Arabesques 2, ed. Susan Shwartz,
                Avon, 1989
* Pocketsful of Diamonds, Strange Attraction, ed. Edward Kramer, 
		ShadowLands, 2000.  
* Houston, 1943, Tropical Chills, ed. Tim Sullivan, Avon, 1988

Available in the UNC library.

* The Sailor Who Sailed After the Sun                
       The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror: Sixth Annual Collection,
                ed. Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling, St.  Martin's, 1993

I think my public library has this series.

* Remembrance to Come, Orbit 6, 1970.

I think the public library has many of the Orbits too.

* Empires of Foliage and Flower
        The Best of Crank!, ed. Bryan Cholfin, Tor, 1998

Nacre said this would be easy to find.  Or did he just mean, "easier than
tracking down a copy of Crank #3"?

* The Night Chough, The Crow: Shattered Lives & Broken Dreams, ed.
                J. O'Barr & Ed Kramer, Ballantine Del Rey, 1998

I've heard of this book elsewhere, which seems promising.

* Slow Children at Play, Cheap Street: New Castle, VA, 1989 
* At the Point of Capricorn, Cheap Street, 1983
        Weird Tales Spring 1988

These are probably right out, as I can't afford a Cheap Street and I doubt
I can find back issues of Weird Tales.

* Lord of the Land, Lovecraft's Legacy, ed. Robert Weinberg
                & Martin H. Greenberg, Tor, 1990
        Best New Horror 2, ed. Stephen Jones & Ramsey Campbell,
                Robinson, 1991
        The Giant Book of Best New Horror, ed. Stephen Jones &
                Ramsey Campbell, Magpie, 1993
        Cthulhu 2000: A Lovecraftian Anthology, ed. Jim Turner,
                Arkham House, 1995

Any thoughts about which of these might be the easiest to find?
(wait, I see UNC has the first one - yay!)

* The Seraph from the Sepulcher, Sacred Visions, ed. Andrew M. Greeley &
                Michael Cassutt, Tor, 1991 

* The Monday Man, Monochrome: The Readercon Anthology, ed.
                Bryan Cholfin, Broken Mirrors Press, 1990  

Any ideas about these two?  Not available at UNC, but I might try the
public library.

Of course I could probably track any of these down on the web, but I
wasn't thinking of buying a whole anthology for one story.  Unless someone
wants to recommend one or more of these books as worth buying for the
other stories.
