Subject:        Weird Tales from Shakespeare

Greetings!

I have been trying to find a copy of the fantasy anthology _Weird Tales
from Shakespeare_ edited by Kerr & Greenberg (1994 ~ ISBN
0-88677-605-8).  Alas, it is out of print.  Does anyone on the list have
a copy of this book?  If so, would you be willing to part with it?!  I'm
a huge fan of Dennis L. McKiernan (http://www.ulen.com/mithgar/), and I
desperately want to read his short story "Alas, Me Bleedin...."

Thanks for your help!

Subject:        Queries

As the person who teaches Shakespeare at a small liberal arts college, I
am expected to know everything about English/British culture, but I do
not. I would appreciate any assistance regarding these two queries.

1. What's does the expression "How's your father?" mean.  I could tie
this to all the "Here comes . . . " entry warnings in the plays, but I
think I would be way off track.

2. When Queen Elizabeth II was Princess Elizabeth, was she Princess of
Wales?  Apparently she was Duchess of Edinburgh before her father died
and she became queen.  Are all females first in line to the throne given
the title of Duchess of Edinburgh by virtue of being first in line?

Many thanks,
Tom Berger
