WE have finished layout, sequencing, and preliminary proofreading of Battle Runes: Writings on War. We are pleased with the book and thank all of our contributors. (Our original posting about the book with the list of contributors is here.) This coming week we will: 1. give a proof copy to Wendy Galgan, Ph.D., a professor of English, who has agreed to write the Foreword; and 2., give a copy to Meagan Meehan, an academically outstanding college student (and English major) who will act as proofreader. If we stay on track, we expect publication at some point in January 2011.
