News to me...

Just catching up with Hershel Parker's blog—there were several items of note in his post of November 10:
  • He just turned 80. (Congratulations!)
  • He's "revising the 1967 Norton Critical Edition of Moby-Dick." (I assume/hope this will be a third edition from Norton. The first two editions are both essential.)
  • He's about to give his personal "Melville Collection" to Lamar University, his undergrad alma mater.
