Russell signs a contract (more on Voices of Disbelief)

Contract for Voices of Disbelief (working title) now signed and sent back to the publisher. We now officially have a deal here.

Okay, so it's time to start (a) celebrating (though who has time for that?), and (b) doing some more cat-herding. And what a fine cat herd of non-believers we'll have for your delectation come 2009. Those readers who are signed up to contribute ... and I just know you all read this ... do remember to spread the good news. We want to generate some buzz, though it strikes me that this is a bit incongruous when I've just been comparing non-believers to cats.

So, safe to assume a lower ratio of dead guys than Hitchens' Portable Atheist?

Russell Blackford said...

Absolutely. We're looking at a large number of essays by people who are very much alive, ranging in age from 20-something to 80-something.

Congrats Russell. I'll celebrate for you. I'd turn up to the opening of a matchbox if there was beer involved. :)
