New Stefan Grabinski Collection Planned

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

After several years of inactivity on the Stefan Grabinski front, his admirers should find much cause to celebrate in the pending publication of a new short story collection, On the Hill of Roses. Grabinski's fan Facebook account reports that the book is being tuned for an independent publication sometime in the near future. It will contain six stories translated by the Polish author's longtime emissary, Miroslaw Lipinski, and presumably fabricates the content of the Polish collection by the same name, first published in 1918. It may be the tip of the spear in an effort to round out Grabinski's full oeuvre not yet brought to English.

These translations have ironically resulted in more admiration for his work in weird fiction's traditional spheres (the UK and United States) than in Poland. The Dark Domain, previously printed and reissued by Dedalus Books was the first "full" appearance of Grabinski in English. Ash-Tree Press followed up with The Motion Demon in 2005, and was said to be planning subsequent volumes of Grabinski tales, but little news about follow ups has materialized since. The latest Grabinski collection is In Sarah's House, a recent paperback by CB Editions.
