The Life of the Author

by J J Cohen

A conventional review disappears into a moldering Speculum, its author seldom aware that the letter has found a reader. A blog review will -- by design or chance or self-googling -- often find not just readers, but words in return from the book's author.

Check out Jim Simpson on my flash review of his recent book.

Did you see that Speculum is entering the 20th century? Will be published by CUP in 2010.

Wow! Matthew, any idea why this happened? MAA's financial troubles?
