Thanks to all for being glad for me.
Questions that came up in the course of that --
Yes, the fourth volume of the series will be published, as noted some time ago herein, from Small Beer Press this spring.
The preceding three are going to back in print very soon, details as soon as I can announce.
Cthulhu. Well of COURSE you want to know how it sounded as passed from Lovecraft to de Camp. Unfortunately, though the sound he made lingers in my haunted brain unerasably, the sound itself was... was... indescribable. It was not merely a matter of accent or what letters were silent. It was a sound like no other. Would to God I had not heard it!
Yes, Evangeline Walton (who as I remember her looked a bit like Pat Nixon) really was blue. Just imagine Pat Nixon, and color her blue. I've been told that the medication has even more severe side effects, fatal in fact after they have prolonged life to some degree.
Lyon: Yes, Anglo-Norman. The Lyon (not Lyons, different bunch) family were first Norman, then Anglo, then Scots Norman overlords. The Lyon or clan head was hereditary Steward of Glamis Castle, thus (possibly) some relation to Macbeth. My Lyon relatives used to claim (partly but not wholly in jest) a family relationship to the Queen through her mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. Some of my relatives actually resemble the Queen, though probably it's mere generic wasp. A relative of mine (legend has it) once presented himself at Windsor Castle as an American cousin, and was invited in for tea. They Lyon family is one of those that circulates (or once did) a family newsletter -- now of course (it just occurs to me) on damn line, like every other damn thing.
