They say that when something is on Wikipedia, that’s when it is official. But that wasn’t what clued me in that the news had broken about this. It was a Google Alert about when my name appears somewhere. I feel honored to have my volume singled out for mention as one the author of the volume on The Rings of Akhaten is looking forward to. I in turn am eagerly looking forward to reading that volume!
You may recall that I prematurely spilled the beans about this a while back. Academics are typically on social media telling one another about book projects pretty much immediately, indeed very often when the book is little more than a vague idea. Outside of the realm of specifically academic publishing, things proceed very differently. I’m glad now it’s official and I can start talking about this more widely. I know that I have many connections who will have things to share, whether observations about the episode, or a willingness to read a draft and provide feedback that will help make the end result better. I look forward to talking with you about this episode in the coming weeks!
