One of the great novels of our time,

A Letter from John Crowley

To All —

Every author dreams that his work will be afforded all the care in editing, design, and production that he would give it himself, if he could. That (usually futile) dream was fulfilled for me when Incunabula published a collection of my stories called Antiquities, a marvellous (and now quite valuable) volume. So I’m delighted that publisher Ron Drummond and designer John Berry have joined up again in a new project on my behalf — a splendid new edition of Little, Big on its 25th anniversary. The project has my full and enthusiastic support, and I will be working with them on every aspect of the publication. What a treat! I hope you will think so too.

Harold Bloom writes:

I look forward with great pleasure to settling down on a winter evening, a few years hence, with your beautiful edition of Little, Big in front of me. It will be a great honor to write a full-scale introduction.
