As I’ve received some queries, I asked Llewellyn Customer Service about the edition of the Veritable Key of Solomon scheduled for September 2 of this year. Their response was that the manuscript isn’t even in house at this point – and for those of you who don’t know about publishers, this kicks the book back by months. I haven’t queried Golden Hoard as to whether their edition will be coming out sooner. (UPDATE: David Rankine’s blog states that the Golden Hoard hardcovers are already shipping, so I’ll have to decide whether $170 is too expensive for my checkbook. ANOTHER UPDATE: As those who know me can guess, I sent in my payment anyway.)
Given what I’ve heard about this book, this is a major disappointment, but we can hope to see the Key emerge at some point in the future.
