Coming in March 2012...

Forthcoming from Oxford University Press:




The book is partly a memoir of my experiences at various creationist conferences, partly an exploration of creationist thought and argumentation, and partly a broader discussion of issues related to science and religion. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, so hopefully readers will enjoy it.

The official publication date for the BECB (that's the big evolution/creationism book for those not up on the local slang) was April 10. Alas, as the tenth drew near I was dismayed to find that the book was only available for pre-order. My previous two books were both available two to three…
Robert Bakker is one of the good guys, a paleontologist who really does an excellent job of communicating enthusiasm for science. I saw him talk at St John's University a few years ago, and he clearly inspired the kids in attendance — I greatly enjoyed the talk too, even though one of his hooks was…
Probably not, but it's going to get one. I have just signed a contract with Oxford University Press for a book based on my experiences at creationist conferences. It's not going to be an easy book to write, but it should be a fun project. The basic outline looks like this: Section one will be…
As part of my one-man media blitz for my new book Among the Creationists: Dispatches From the Anti-Evolutionist Frontline, let me call your attention to a few posts. P. Z. Myers has posted a nice review.: What do you do on airplanes? I usually devour a book or two, usually something popcorny and…

Ahem! I think Ed Brayton might want to speak with you about the title ;-)

Inquiring minds want to know:

Were you wounded at the front?

Did you get PTSD? Or the simpler, short term combat stress?

Looking forward to it.

Can't wait, cute cover.

Will it be available on Kindle?

Fantastic! In spite of the certainty that I will be alternately enraged and gobsmacked by the actions and ignorance of creationists revealed in this book, I'm still looking forward to reading it.

Looks great, can't wait to read it! Congrats!

Congratulations! Love the cover.

Thanks for all the encouragement! Oxford publishes both Kindle and Nook editions of its books, so we're good to go on that one.

By the time this is published it will be my third book. The Sudoku book is currently scheduled for publication in January 2012, but as a practical matter that means books might be available in December.

I'm looking forward to it. And you've already drawn a sneer from 'News' over at Uncommon Dissent. :)

Congratulations! And an OUP book at that! I'll be Kindling it when it arrives. Don't know about the Sudoku book, though I might give it as a gift to some friend brighter than I. For your next book you should switch gears and produce a critical analysis of the novels of John Dickson Carr. He's been quite neglected recently.

Please do a post when it's actually available so I can get it.

have to wait for the paperback or the library :(

Amazon has it listed as an April 2 release.

What would be nice is a release prior to the March 1-4 Moving Secularism Forward Joint CfI/CfSH in Orlando, FL. It is certainly on topic for that meeting.

I love the cover illustration. Brilliant.

I'm sure that what's inside will live up to it, too.

I just realized that my comment (directly above) could come across as sarcastic. It's definitely not intended that way. Sorry if it seemed so.

I did a peer-review at some stage a year or two back, I strongly recommended it, I'm glad it's finally out!
