Hello all. Hard at work on the next book so it has been a while since the last post.
I've got a couple of speaking events for Our Supreme Task coming up. I hope you can make it to one of these:

This is coming back to the place where my book project started. Museum Director Rob Havers and his staff were a great help with my research and manuscript review, and if you've never been to the museum you're in for a visual treat, as it's housed in a Christopher Wren-designed, white Portland stone church that was shipped to Fulton from London and re-assembled stone by stone.
