Aldous Huxley Annual is the official organ of the Aldous Huxley Society at the Centre for Aldous Huxley Studies in Münster, Germany (see AHS homepage at ). It publishes essays on the life, times, and interests of Aldous Huxley and his circle. It aspires to be the sort of periodical that Huxley would have wanted to read and to which he might have contributed.
This issue is dedicated to Prof Peter Edgerly Firchow ( 18 October 2008) in appreciation of his merits as an outstanding Huxley scholar and as a Founding Member and Curator of the Aldous Huxley Society. It opens with Prof Firchow's keynote lecture at the Fourth International Aldous Huxley Symposium in Los Angeles in July 2008 and then presents a rich anthology of Huxley's uncollected prose from 1919 to 1963, edited by James Sexton. Two more lectures from the Los Angeles Symposium close this issue, one on death in Lawrence's and Huxley's fiction, and the other on Erwin Schrödinger's and Huxley's views on the final end of human life.
N.B.: The submission deadline for volume 8 of Aldous Huxley Annual is 31 May 2009. For further details see inside front cover.
