God’s Philosophers is due out in August 2009. I can confirm that it will be released in Australia and Canada, probably before the end of next year. However, it may be delayed to avoid the Christmas rush of celebrity biographies and reprinted cookbooks.
And as you can see, we have a cover design. I think this looks fantastic and I’m very grateful to Icon for commissioning it from such a talented designer. However, we might change the central figure (which is a sixteenth century woodcut of a doctor examining a bottle of urine!) for a bookish scholar. I’ll keep you posted.
Unfortunately, my posting will be slight for the next couple of months as I beat the manuscript into shape (as well as doing my day job). A big thank you to Jim, J.D. and Humphrey for their excellent blogging and to everyone else who contributes to the discussion board.
