  1. Love the cover art! (have just gone back and read your blog posts about it which I had previously missed).
    The art speaks for itself, but the title translates any ambiguity!

    Congratulations! It's a great feeling - enjoy it. Because once you start finding the typos, it's all downhill from there ... ;-)

    Thanks! It's certainly a great feeling, to have it exist in the real world at long last.

    Alan:

    Ah, well, I've already found a couple, including a really annoying one at the end of the introduction. By the way, you might notice a familiar spine on one of the bookshelves in the background!

    I see I'm in a highly respectable neighborhood, with Sonya Rose and David Edgerton just down the road to borrow a cup of (rationed) sugar from ... though I can't figure out who the person right next door is.

    You're doing this "acquisitions" thing wrong, Brett. There's supposed to be a brief, snarky review. Congratulations, by the way.

    Cheers again.

    Alan:

    That's Simon Garfield's We Are At War. Well-spotted on the other two, though.

    Erik:

    There'll be plenty of snark when the reviews come in, I'm sure.

    Paul:

    And it has been a few years now! Nearly 9 since I started the PhD, nearly 5 years since I finished it -- and 2.5 years since I signed the book contract. History is a time-consuming process.
