OTO Cabinet member David Tibet has edited a new anthology of the works of Count Stenbock called OF KINGS AND THINGS, which is now available for pre-order from Strange Attractor. Tibet says:
“I am OverMoon to announce my anthology Of Kings and Things, which brings together my favourite stories and poems by my Utter Hero Count Stenbock, is now available for pre-order from the Gorgeous Strange Attractor. It includes several unpublished poems, as well as a previously unpublished photograph of Stenbock, and many illustrations of his first editions and other items taken from my own Stenbock collection. The beautiful cover and external and internal title fonts have been created and designed by Ania Goszczyńska.
“Stenbock is one of my favourite writers and favourite individuals, and has had an immense influence on me and on C93, and I have been publishing his work for many years, and will be continuing to do so. The publisher’s press release follows below.
“We at Strange Attractor are putting the finishing touches to David Tibet’s highly-anticipated selection of rare tales, poems and essays by the decadent’s decadent—Count Eric Stanislaus Stenbock, described by W. B. Yeats as a “scholar, connoisseur, drunkard, poet, pervert, most charming of men”.
“With an extensive historical introduction by David Tibet and a foreword by decadent scholar Timothy D’Arch Smith, author of the ground-breaking Love in Earnest which first properly introduced David to Stenbock’s work so many years ago, this remarkable volume offers fourteen stories, including all of those in his legendary collections Studies of Death and The Child of the Soul, over thirty poems and one proem—several previously unpublished—and one essay by this complex and intriguing figure. Also included in the book are illustrations of his rare first editions, and a previously unpublished photograph of Stenbock himself. Available here for pre-order now in a hardback edition, signed by David, as well as in a trade paperback standard editions. To be shipped by 5 March 2018.”
