The following note on the change of name for the journal appears in volume IV, p. 11, column 2:

“A number of readers and contributors have suggested that the title Poe Newsletter does not adequately describe the scope and contents of the journal, with this number Poe Newsletter becomes Poe Studies. Many of the ‘newsletter’ features will continue, however. The column ‘Current Poe Studies’ (wherein research in progress, symposia, new publications, meetings, and other miscellaneous data are recorded) and progress reports on such projects as the Dameron Complete Bibliography and the Mabbott Collected Works will appear from time to time. The annotated bibliography, of course, will continue — as will the ‘Fugitive’ bibliography so long as research assistance is available. The short notes and comment of the ‘Marginalia’ column will continue. There will be little change of format, size, or rate of issue, though we expect to be able to accommodate somewhat longer articles. Coincidentally, however, a small increase in cost (planned before the title change) is necessary, despite a handsome subsidy from Washington State University.”
