Stories of Stone: An Ecology of the Inhuman @ UMP

by J J Cohen

Now that I've received the fully executed contract and it is 100% official, I'm very happy to announce that my book Stories of Stone: An Ecology of the Inhuman will be published by the University of Minnesota Press. This book will be my fifth project with UMP (first was this little thing, then two monographs, and most recent is this collection) -- and I'm pleased to be working with them again. I love that their books are reasonably priced and immediately available as hardcover, paperback, and etexts.

Who knows if the title of the published volume will be the same as that on the contract, but I made a decision not to have the word medieval appear within it. Most of the materials I examine are actually 12th-14th C (English, French, Latin), but I've grown a bit weary of period-specific writing and hope to trigger a larger conversation through this work. We'll see.

I have a great deal of revising ahead of me, but it's good to know that the work will have a good home. Look for it in 2015.
