The delayed publication last October of the spring '83 number—delayed because of the complexity of publishing "The Library of Henry James"—simply set us too far behind to catch up as quickly as we would have liked. We hope, however, to get the spring '84 issue out by mid-September , and, if we succeed in doing so, we should have a good chance of being back on schedule by spring '85. We console ourselves with the thought that a four-month lag is small in comparison to the threehundred -year shelf-life of the journal. Whether you are consoled or not, we are grateful for your patience, and I apologize for having kept you waiting. Forthcoming in the spring '84 issue are all of the papers and responses from the 1983 meeting of the Henry James Society and the analytic bibliographical essay on James studies in 1982, co-authored by Richard A. Hocks and Paul Taylor. Our plans for volume 6 include an in-depth analyzed subject index to our first five volumes. This index should greatly enhance the value of the HJR for James scholars, (continued on p. 156) Volume V 79 Number 2 The Henry Jemes Review Winter, 1984 who will be eble to track down every reference in our first million or so words to eny topic of interest (from Adems to ZoIe, from Amerigo to the Wentworths, end from eestheticism to youth). We will elso publish, in volume 6, Jeen Kimball's anelyzed index to The Art of the Novel. In eddition, we heve secured for publicetion neerly all of the essays in the Edel-Richmond collection of centenery esseys on The Portreit of e Ledy (including pieces by Leon Edel, Lyall Powers, Dorothea Krook, William T. Stefford , Adeline R. Tintner, Sendra Djwa, Robert White, end Elizebeth Sebiston, plus Merion Richmond's up-to-dete, ennoteted bibliography of criticism of The Portreit). The Portrait collection will appeer two or three esseys et e time in successive issues of the HJR (or, if we receive e grant for which we ere epplying to the Netionel Endowment for the Humenities, in e single issue more then twice es long es our réguler numbers). Also sleted for publicetion in volume 6 ere esseys by, among others, Enny de Boer Eshuis, James Ellis, Darshen Singh Meini, Merk Reynolds, end Joseph Wiesenferth . As ever, we solicit your contributions to the journel. Finelly, Richerd Hocks hes announced that he wants to pass on the annual review of James studies to someone else. Professor Hocks's comprehensive surveys of James scholarship have set en extreordinerily high stenderd for his successor, for they heve been distinguished by en ecute criticel intelligence, by Professor Hocks's wermth end wit, end by e lively, highly reedeble style. I invite anyone who might be interested in taking on the challenging, important tesk thet Professor Hocks hes performed so well to send me e letter of epplicetion end β resume.
