Congrats on a great book. What a cool group of subjects and writers.

Ken Albala said...

Thanks Dear. I think you're the only person who leaves comments here. SO hey, if you see this, I found a new source for bitter almonds. Want some? I'll write you elsewhere too. XOK

Juana Isabella/Donna said...

Hey Ken, Deana's not the only one who reads this :-) I'm still here too.

Glenn said...

Likewise what Juana says. I think we're all outdoors, doing summer-time cooking instead of reading our computers, that's all (I'm at work, so that doesn't count).

Hi Ken, I got my copy of the book as an author, and I'm delighted. I know what's in my chapter on archaeology, but the perspectives and backgrounds of the other authors are fabulous. Thanks for making this such a quick turn-around so the content is so timely.
