Subject: FJ Child Reissue
Dear folks,

I've probably missed some one else's message saying this, but:

Loomis House Press is currently issuing a very nice looking New Edition of Child. What a nightmare. Glad someone else has done it! But don't look to those ol' texts, what about all the great field tapes currently being released? It's a good thing that Child and Bronson did their work when they did as there are far too many variants and versions out there now to do anything that could be considered nearly as authoritative.
