Voices of Disbelief - halfway there

Udo Schuklenk and I now have about 25 essays for Voices of Disbelief. We'll end up with somewhere between 50 and 60, so we're near enough to halfway there. If I single out individual contributors, it'll not do justice to all the ones not mentioned. But they include regular readers of this blog - Damien Broderick and Greg Egan. Plus well-known authors, journalists, philosophers, activists ...

It's going to be a strong book. Stay tuned, folks.

You're just daring me to make the cheap shot here, aren't you?

I mean Greg is sooo obscure. Damien, too. lol.

Yeah, maybe I didn't word that well. Sorry, guys. :)

I love this project. I can't wait to see it!

Could I be so bold as to offer an essay? Regardless, I'm eager to see the completed work.

becca, see my more recent post. Briefly, the book is closed for submissions and we even have a reserve list already. Will look at your blog, though.
