Well, Lads and Ladlets, I have some great news! Well, great for ME, anyway. I have just signed a contract with The American Radio Relay League (the venerable ARRL) for a ponderous tome, Radio Science for the Radio Amateur. This will be a bit more serious than The Opus of Amateur Radio Knowledge and Lore. Yes, I am capable of a serious thought, now and again. Just ask Belle Yang.
This book will be a comprehensive overview of the Scientific Method, with many examples of low cost backyard science. (No, I will have no recipes for personal nuclear reactors, alas). But whether you happen to be a radio amateur or not, this will be an accessible, comprehensive view of science, both old and cutting edge.
Publishing date will be approximately one year from today. I will try to poke my head into Red Room on occasion, but if I appear to be absent, I'm not being antisocial...just writerly. (Many folks tell me I appear to be absent, even when I'm there...so this should be no big change). If I don't reappear by the first week of May, you might want to send a posse, however. May 1 is my drop-dead date for having my material into the publisher....and it may be more than a literary figure of speech. :)
This book will be my third published work in two years. At this rate, I could almost quit one of my day jobs.
Hope springs eternal.
