cover of World of Warcraft ReaderOK, so Amazon says it won’t actually be published till May 31, 2008, but you can preorder it now! And honestly, just the glory of seeing our book actually out there – at least virtually – is just so, so satisfying 🙂 Now how, I wonder, do we start a blog for the book on Amazon as I’ve seen other authors have done?

The Reader’s also in MIT Press’s Spring 2008 catalog. Here’s the catalog page – or you can browse the whole 60+ page PDF of the Spring 2008 catalog instead, if you like. Doug Sery, our editor, is presenting the book at a sales conference next week, and the final proofs are in the mail for us to take a last look at. I can’t wait to see the layout and everything just the way it’ll be in the physical book!
