Voices of Disbelief update

The book that Udo Schuklenk and I are editing for Blackwell - working title Voices of Disbelief - is moving along quietly but surely. Over the past couple of days, I've been writing to several of the contributors just to check their snail mail addresses so that we can have a comprehensive list for contracts to be sent to.

Quite a few people have already delivered their essays; others have shown us drafts; still others have promised to deliver well in advance of the 1 September deadline (no one really has to do anything before then, but it's very useful to have a steady of trickle of work to look at). I don't think I'm treading on any toes in mentioning the names of some people who've already given us material: among them are (in no particular order) Michael Shermer, Taner Edis, Adele Mercier, Graham Oppy, Greg Egan, Damien Broderick, Edgar Dahl, and Jack Dann. Before we're through, we'll have more than fifty essays with a wide range of viewpoints and maybe some big surprises.
