I’m pleased to announce that I’ve finished the first chapter of the book I’ve been working on. (Actually it’s been finished for over a week – my apologies for procrastinating on the announcement.) Although this chapter has taken almost a month to write, it will probably end up being the one with the most original material in the entire book. My plan is for subsequent chapters to incorporate substantial parts of my Ebon Musings essays, so I expect them to take considerably less time to put together.As before, anyone who’s interested in reading the chapter and offering feedback, provided they are a regular commenter, is eligible to read it. E-mail me or leave a comment if interested.
