I am very pleased to announce that Icon Books have agreed to publish my book God’s Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science. Icon are a British publishing house specialising in non-fiction for the more intellectual end of the market. In particular, they have published many excellent books on the history of science by historians like John Henry, Stephen Pumfrey and Patricia Fara. I can also recommend their Introducing… series which is made up of fun illustrated guides to difficult ideas. Finally, anyone who shared my obsession with fantasy and Dungeons and Dragons back in the 1980s will be pleased to find that Icon also own the imprint that publishes Warlock of Firetop Mountain and the other Fighting Fantasy books. I got a shock of nostalgia when I found that they were still available.
God’s Philosophers will be available in hardback next August at all good bookshops in the UK as well as from the usual on-line sources. I think it may also be available in South Africa and Australia. However, as yet, there is no publisher for the US. Hopefully the book will be successful enough in the UK to persuade an American house to come on board. Do please continue to sign up as interested in the book at my website so I can let you know when the book is out and how to get hold of it.
