    I wasn't a particular fan of the Greek chorus device in the book, but it's otherwise a great read of sorrow and regret and learning to move on as individuals and as a family under the weight of both. O'Nan is terrific, and the production values of this one look great...will definitely be giving this one serious consideration.

    Hey, Brian. Camelot isn't listed as one of the retailers in the newsletter but they do have it in their newsletter.

    Great choice! Would love to see more from O'Nan. Songs for the Missing or The Speed Queen would fit right in with what Lividian is putting out!

    I started this comment and then got pulled away... but I'll still be copying my answer from the DT board even though it's already been done!

    I wish I could say it means something awesome in Latin or ancient Greek, but Lividian was just one of the names for a bad guy in a book I wrote in high school.

    I always liked the name, and when I needed something for the press that started with "L" (to keep the logo the same), it popped into my head again. I still liked the "ring" of the name, and the domain name Lividian.com was available (I've always wanted a shorter domain name), so I decided it was a sign to make the change.

    As to how I pronounce it, here's a little audio example:

    I appreciate the link though.

    (Sorry for the font. Don't know how to change it.)

    Are you able to tell us the meaning behind the name and how to pronounce it?

    Either way I am thankful you kept a name consistent with your prior publication in regards to the book(s) appearance.

    Onward and upward! I like the new name, Brian. It is more unique and distinctive. I'm sure everyone is glad that the logo will stay the same. You know how us book collectors are. ;-)

    I still love, love, love my limited edition of REVIVAL and I'm looking forward to everything you will be doing in the future. Those review copies of 20th Century Ghosts look wonderful!

    I’m really happy to share some news that has been in the works for a while now:

    We’re changing our name from LetterPress Publications to Lividian Publications. Our new website address is Lividian.com and my new email address is brian@lividian.com — although the old addresses will continue to work for a while.

    The press logo remains the same, so the SPINES of all the current and past books will match on the shelf, and this doesn’t change anything about the projects we’ve announced.

    Right before the announcement of Revival by Stephen King, we changed direction as a company to focus on publishing beautiful special editions that were also as affordable as possible. There are a number of terrific publishers specializing in letterpress printed books, and we felt it was important to try to do something different.

    Nothing else will be changing in terms of how we’re doing things, just our name, but we wanted to get this announced before the 20th Century Ghosts review copies ship since they do have the new press name on them. Speaking of those review copies, they turned out beautifully. Here’s a photo I took this weekend:



    More news to come soon! Thank you again for all of your support and enthusiasm!

    Best,
    Brian

    Don't tempt me. I keep telling myself that I missed out on the 20th CENTURY GHOSTS lettered so if I buy this one, I'll be disappointed I don't have the next. This tactic is working so far. We'll see if I have the endurance to hold out for the long haul.
