Added some more links to places on-line where Blaylock books can be found.
Also, a rather bemusing cover--image for the French edition of The
The short story, "In
for a Penny or The Man Who Believed in Himself", is online at scifi.com (now defunct),
Another short story, "Small
Houses", has been published on Scifi.com (now defunct).
A new short story, His
Own Back Yard, is online at Scifi.com
Will Ferret (whose website http://www.willferret.com has now been taken over by a Japanese milk company, strangely...) illustrator of several
Blaylock books, kindly provided a great image
of some goblins from the Morrigan edition of Magic
Spectacles as well as the complete
set of the illustrations he created for Homunculus.
Thirteen Phantasms, a short story collection
from Edgewood Press, is available (see links here to
bookstores and to the publisher's Thirteen Phantasms website). A cover images
is posted online at our Thirteen Phantasms page.
A new short story "The
Other Side", has been published online at scifi.com (now defunct).
Subterranean Press has published
a Blaylock chapbook called Home Before Dark (which I believe is already
sold out), as well as a William Ashbless short story and poem published together
as On Pirates (William Ashbless is a nom de plume of Blaylock and Tim
Powers - available January 2001).
A new Blaylock short story, "The
War of the Worlds", was posted at scifi.com (now defunct).
There's part of an interview
with Tim Powers at this
site that describes the origin of Ashbless, and mentions the intriguing
"William Ashbless Memorial Cookbook", which I hope someday goes into print.

someone is selling hats shaped like wedges of cheese.
This isn't strictly Blaylock-related, but it might amuse some Blaylock readers
(especially those who like the Elfin Ship or the Last Coin)
to know that the US Patent Office
last year issued patent number 5,708,983 for an invention described as an
"Inflatable Cheese Wedge Hat". It's comforting to know that the real world
is sometimes like a Blaylock novel.
The chat with Blaylock on Event Horizon has been archived here.
