Zombies walking

April 6th, 2010

I sent the manuscript of Zombie Economics off to Princeton University Press last night. There’s still plenty of work (figures, index, copyediting, some last-minute changes, galleys) to be done for a planned release at Halloween. But this is the official submission. In writing the preface I checked over the comments I’d received, here and at Crooked Timber. Several thousand in total, from more than a hundred different commenters. Thanks to everyone who took part. It was a huge help and encouragement to me.

    from a reader’s perspective, it’s been nice to have a bit of an insight into the process involved in producing a non-fiction book. i’m surprised that it would take almost another 7 months from here to publishing.

    will purchase.

    At Halloween? I bet that will surprise a few buyers, but it seems appropriate to me.

    Congratulations! Maybe some will be distributed during ‘Trick or Treat’.

    Do you get to choose the book’s cover? I’m imagining the gang of Mont Pelerin regulars, along with Thatcher and Reagan, staring out of the cover with maggots in their green putrefying flesh

    I have seen the cover art, and it will not disappoint you.
