New Books available from the ACS on-line catalog

William Oddie’s new bio of GKC:
The first volume of the most comprehensive biography of Chesterton ever to appear. Oddie has brought together previously unpublished material to provide insight into Chesterton's spiritual formation. In the process, he methodically dispels many of the unsavory rumors about GKC that have been carelessly bandied about for years. Any serious student of Chesterton must read this book. Highly recommended by the American Chesterton Society.

And The Coloured Lands (with a new afterword by Martin Gardner):
Essays, sketches, poems, short stories and some indescribable stuff from Chesterton, compiled by Maisie Ward. First published just after his death, it is one of his most sought after books, now back in print at last. Includes "Half Hours in Hades," "The Disadvantage of Having Two Heads," "Immortal Idiots," "Mrs. Chesterton's Donkeys," and of course, "Plakkopytrixophylisperambulantiobatrix." Completely Delightful.
