For the main part of the Laurance Labadie Archival Project, I am going through pdf scans and old hardcopies of Labadie’s work in order to convert them to digital text form for the Center for a Stateless Society website in order to make them more widely and freely available. However, it was always my intention to either not convert or leave for last Ardent Press’s anthology 2014 Anarcho-Pessimism: The Collected Writings of Laurance Labadie. It is therefore with relief and excitement that I have been informed by fellow archivists that this anthology and other texts are now available at The Anarchist Library.
It was my intention to reproduce some of the pieces now present there—and those I have already transcribed and written commentary on will still be published at C4SS—but now my focus will be on those even rarer pieces seemingly only available in rare and vintage hardcopy. A big thanks to The Anarchist Library for making these texts available and for offering to help me going forward to make the pieces I am going to be converting to digital text available on their site.
I hope very much that all of this is indicative of a renewed interest in Labadie!
