The BECB, that is. That’s the big evolution/creation book, for those not up on the local slang. Finished the first draft last night. Very cool.
On the other hand, looks like I just lost my excuse for sporadic blogging…
Any forecast for when your Sudoku book will hit the shelves? And will there be an e-version?
Oops – forgot to say congratulations on finishing the BECB!
Congrats. You’re an inspiration.
Excellent! As first drafts go, roughly how long are you expecting the final book to be? Are we talking slim pamphlet or Neal Stephenson style saga?
The Sudoku book is currently scheduled to come out around November. Oxford University Press releases e-editions of all their books, but I think the Sudoku book may not fare too well in that form. The book is very diagram heavy and has lots of original puzzles for solving.
You’re too kind.
Somewhere in between! The finished book will probably be in the 250-300 page range.
Congrats! Can’t wait to read (and review).
You’ve got me curious, Jason. Any previews?
Would love to see your taxonomy of evolutionary models.
Also, put me on your reviewer list.
Want more reviewers? I’ll take a Kindle copy of BECB right now 😉
Cool looking forward to the BECB, will need to clear a few books I’ve had sitting around before it’s released.
Congrats! Very much looking forward to reading it- and to more frequent blog posting 😉
I too am looking forward to reading it. I like e-books because I can carry it around with me and text search for topics or quotes (no… not to quote mine… well, not too much anyway).
Congratulations on finishing the book. I hope it’s a success.
Thanks! It will be a little while yet before the book actually appears. I’m first handing in the manuscript on May 1, and then it will take a while to turn it around. So we’re looking at early 2012 as a publication date. Right now it’s in the hands of various proofreaders.
Who is the publisher?
Damn me to several of the christian’s gods for not being a proofreader!
