Hello, everyone, thank you for joining this mailing list.

Writing Career Updates

As promised, I will be using this list to provide you with details of my writing career. 

First, let me direct your attention to my extensive work at About.com Physics, including regular blog posts and articles on current physics topics such as the recent discovery of a superinsulator.

I have also begun my own blog, The Philosopher's Stone Blog, which focuses largely on book reviews and commentary on current events.  My recent reviews include Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism and Howard Gardner's Five Minds for the Future.  Right now I'm reading two books which should prove quite intriguing to review, so keep an eye open for those!

As far as other writing, I have just received very positive feedback on my essay "The Physics of Heroes: Flying Men, Immortal Samurai, and Destroying the Space-Time Continuum" for Heroes and Philosophy, due out in time to coincide with the start of the third season of NBC's Heroes.  I have a month to complete this essay and will be focusing on that in a week, when my Linear Algebra course is completed (see below for more on that).

If this sounds good, also look into my last publication, "Exploring the Dark Side of the Rainbow" in Pink Floyd and Philosophy: Careful with that Axiom, Eugene! (read on to find out how to win a free copy), which discusses the synchronicity between The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album.  If you have never heard of this synchronicity, it's well worth checking out.

Other Life Events

For those who haven't heard, I am engaged to my lovely Amber Eckert.  At present, the details of the wedding are still up in the air as we debate the merits of eloping or having a ceremony or what have you.  We're both extremely excited and would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes.

I am in the last week of my Linear Algebra course.  This summer I will be taking two 6-week courses - Abstract Algebra & Projective Geometry - which will complete my M.S. in Mathematics Education! 

Free Books

As a means of thanking you for subscribing to my list, I would like to offer you a free e-book or audiobook of Jack London's classic Call of the Wild.  You can download these directly by becoming a free Preferred Customer of my new bookstore, where you can purchase books for up to 42% off the retail price, a rate which is better than even Amazon.com in many cases!

However, if you choose not to buy any books, I will still provide you with the ebook and/or audiobook, if you would like them!  All I ask is that you look at the bookstore and tell me why you are choosing not to buy anything at this time. I will then send you a CD containing both the e-book (on PDF format) and audiobook (or just one format, if you prefer) of Call of the Wild!  Please be sure to provide your snail mail address in the e-mail.

But that's not all!  Everyone who receives Call of the Wild, through either method, will be entered for a random drawing on April 30 to win a free copy of Pink Floyd and Philosophy: Careful with that Axiom, Eugene! sent directly from me!  If you buy through the website and get the e-book or audiobook, just drop me an e-mail so that I'll be able to record you in the running.

Thank you all for your time and keep reading!
