Editor's Fence OUR FOUNDING EDITOR, Helmut Gerber, created the ELT Special Series to complement the quarterly by providing scholarly editions of rare primary works. The first number appeared in 1964, Michael Timko's edition of H. G. Wells's Hoopdriver's Holiday. In 1966, Robert L. Peters and David G. Halliburton's edition of Edmund Gosse's America: The Diary of a Visit, Winter 1884-1885 was published. After a considerable hiatus the series resumed in 1985, taking a different tack with Essays on Selected Transition Authors, a collection of articles on Wells, Conrad, Moore, Hardy, Shaw, and Pater. I hope the August publication of ELT Special Series Number 4: Essays & Poems will re-energize the series and prepare the way for a consistent schedule. As the advertisement on the last page of this issue suggests, the 184-page volume is a unique tribute to Ian Fletcher, offering distinguished essays on Transition authors by highly regarded scholars in the field. There is also a selection of poems by Ian: moving, humorous, delightfully bawdy, and always accomplished . And well-known American and English poets—like Norman Dubie, Rita Dove, and John Lucas—dedicate some of their poems to Ian. Photographs, illustrations, and a splendid drawing of Ian by Santa Fe, New Mexico's own Stuart Patterson complete the issue. Every two years ELT will publish additions to the special series, our interests focused through three "scholarly genres": monographs (80-120 pages when printed); editions of primary works (akin to the first two numbers of the special series), and bibliographies (practical tools to facilitate thorough research). I encourage those of you who have such projects well underway to write me and describe your work. I'd be pleased to consider it for publication. Remember, however, that the special series follows a steadfast editorial policy. Long ago we relinquished the temptation to publish articles on James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, and alas even D. H. Lawrence. After all, many journals and presses are eager, some might say impatient, to print the latest exegeses about these writers. ELT and ELT Press husband their resources for the less widely celebrated figures of the Transition period. A ready list of our authors is available in 30:1 (1987), 4-5. 404 £%■■Announcements &§, Call for Papers: Shaw: The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies invites manuscripts for Shaw 13, guest edited by John A.

Northeast Victorian Studies Association: The conference Victorian Endings will be held 26-28 April 1991 at the University of Rochester . Please send all papers or abstracts (10 copies) to Dr. Saundra Segan Wheeler, Program Coordinator, Department of English, Yeshiva University, 500 W. 185th St., New York, NY 10033. The deadline is 12 October 1990. William E. Buckler, 1924-1990 We offer sincere condolences to Sister Mary Rhodes "Theresa" Buckler and friends of William E. Buckler.
