>>>Child has long been out of print, but just this year that has all changed. Loomis House has reprinted the first volume, with the rest to follow, and Heritage Muse is bringing the whole thing out on CDROM.<<<

Thanks, Malcolm:

I shall keep my eye out for those publications! The CD-ROM sounds convenient, but I do find a hard-copy book much more satisfying. How frustrating that all the Loomis volumes are not being released simultaneously.

In the meantime, I shall have to make do with access to the copies in my local library system. Unfortunately, they don't always note the volume number properly in their catalogue, so you never know which volume will actually turn up on the hold shelf when you make a request. Oh, sigh!

Anyhow, if, in your folklore studies, you come across any more instances of a gravesite being selected by a divinatory method or an appeal to chance (paricularly the flight of an arrow or the drifting of a ship), please let me know.

Cheers, Hester
