Good news: I have been told by Ann Thompson--who should know--that there 
are plans to publish the Arden 3 second volume (Q1 and F) in paper in 
about a year.

I share Sean King's attitudes about a de-conflated Hamlet and about the 
excellence of Harold Jenkins' Arden 2 Hamlet and the misfortune of its 
impending withdrawal, but I have said these things already.

If someone wants an "authentic" Renaissance text, then just buy (or 
publish) a facsimile reprint. And these are now widely available, so I 
fail to see the point of publishing the Q2 version of Hamlet or two 
versions of King Lear. When I buy a Shakespeare text, I want modernised 
spellings (at least when doing so doesn't significantly impact the 
sound) and all the important authoritative variants. Personally, I 
prefer the Bevington Ed.
