Nombre: The New Creatures
Printed concurrently with The Lords: Notes on Vision is Jim Morrison's second self-published collection, The New Creatures (Frank Lisciandro recalls the two works arriving at The Doors' office on the same day). Only 100 copies are produced by the Western Lithograph Company as a small bound hardcover book, and unlike The Lords: Notes on Vision, it does not feature any prose work.
The New Creatures is published under Morrison's full name, James Douglas Morrison, and includes the dedication "To Pamela" (referring to his longtime girlfriend, Pamela Susan Courson). Interestingly, when Simon & Schuster publishes The Lords And The New Creatures the following year, Morrison slightly alters the dedication to read "To Pamela Susan."
The last line in the book reads "July 24, 1968. Los Angeles, The United States, Hawaii" suggesting the work was composed across several cities during The Doors' 1968 American tour and completed while the band was on vacation following their concert in Honolulu, HI on July 20, 1968.
It's unclear exactly when the private editions of The Lords: Notes on Vision and The New Creatures were printed, but the earliest date that can be attributed to both books is April 9, 1969, which is the date Morrison registered them with the U.S. Copyright Office. Ray Manzarek can also be seen holding a copy of The New Creatures during the band's interview with Richard Goldstein on the PBS special Critique filmed on April 29, 1969. However, the two books could have been printed as early as February or March 1969, around the time Morrison was recording his poetry in the studio and working with Michael McClure on a script treatment based on his novel The Adept.
