Volume 17/18 begins with a section containing original Huxley documents: Below the Equator, an unpublished film story collaboration by Isher­wood and Huxley, edited by James Sexton and Bernfried Nugel, to be followed by two pieces rediscovered and edited by James Sexton, viz. The Heroes, William R. Cox’s screenplay adaptation of a lost Huxley story, and the translation of a 1960 interview held in French by the Canadian writer Hubert Aquin. Then Huxley nephew Piero Ferrucci kindly opens his family archives of original Huxley letters and photographs and contributes a remarkable essay on his coming of age with Aldous Huxley. Rounding off this section, Peter Wood introduces an unknown 1934 letter Huxley wrote to René Schickele, a forgotten German author in the writers’ community at Sanary. The second section presents a further selection of papers from the Sixth International Aldous Huxley Symposium held at Almería in April 2017 as well as other critical articles.
