Looks like this is past the time I can edit this, but my book is up this morning on Amazon:

They don’t have the correct cover graphic up yet, or the link to the Kindle version, or the Contents in the description, but I guess they’re building it.

I just love that I have an ISBN number! :D

We’re asking for reviews of this book, and offering prizes to the top three essays. Everyone who participates will receive a gift box. Decisions will be announced Dec. 12th.

My objective is not to sell books, but to see what players and teachers think, and edit the book accordingly before I present it to University of Indiana Press. Entrants will be provided with a postcard in December, which they will return, signed, giving up copyright to their entry. All entries will have to have a verifiable address, though a PO box will be fine. This address will not be used for any other purpose or sold!
