In May The Flaming Terrapin was published simultaneously in Britain and the United States. Although it received very good reviews, it sold poorly and the couple continued to live in poverty.

important poems are The Flaming Terrapin and Flowering Rifle, which Lewis reacts to in his first poem to Campbell, and the Spanish translations, a few of which (not necessarily those in this book) Campbell read to an Inklings meeting. Campbell's conversion to Roman Catholicism () was about tfen years before he met. FE (illustrator). CAMPBELL, Roy. THE FLAMING TERRAPIN. London: Jonathan Cape, ().

Syd Barrett was known to be reclusive. Reclusiveness may coincide with mental disorders and some persons may have speculative diagnoses of schizophrenia (see List of people with schizophrenia), but this does not mean that Barrett's songs, and the songs about him, concern reclusion: for example, the instrumental "Interstellar Overdrive" exemplify Pink Floyd's early psychedelic period. Campbell’s first book, The Flaming Terrapin (), brought him immediate acclaim; as T.S. Eliot does in The Waste Land, to which Campbell’s book is sometimes compared, Campbell rebels against postwar cynicism and apathy. And like Eliot, Campbell eventually converted to Catholicism.
