I’m finding myself on a blog break at the moment. I came back from Conflux 9 with a big pile of work to deal with, not least checking the page proofs for 50 Great Myths About Atheism, and indexing the book. Udo and I will be working on the book pretty intensely over the next little while, trying to remove whatever rough edges remain and producing that all-important well-structured index (this alone is a time -consuming job, probably a few days of full-time work). I also have quite a load of accumulated work to do for The Journal of Evolution and Technology, I have the annual general meeting of the Hunter Writers Centre coming up (I am chair of this small arts organisation’s board of directors), I have some pieces to write for publication and some talks to give over the next few weeks, and of course my ordinary life involving family, friends, a house to look after, etc., etc., doesn’t stop just because there’s a lot to do with, say, the books I’m involved with.
Do check out The Hellfire Club now and then, but if you don’t see a lot of blogging going on through May that’s why. I’ll still report on Conflux at some point, and I’m not going away. There’s plenty to talk about.
