This is a response to Ray Queen's October 20th query to the Forum
about the availability of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
and other out-of-print volumes in The Oxford Mark Twain. I've just
learned that Oxford plans to bring the OMT edition of Connecticut
Yankee back into print in about six weeks. Oxford will reprint
Connecticut Yankee and seven other volumes (several of which are
also now out of print) by December lst. The following eight OMT
volumes will be available by December both individually and as a set
(they're calling the eight-book set The Best of Mark Twain, it will
sell for $125, and its ISBN # is 0-19-515980-2):
