“Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” To Be Published By Pitchstone!

Excting book news! The print edition of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless is going to be published by Pitchstone Publishing!

It’s currently available on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. The audio book will be published by in about three months. I’d been planning to self-publish the print edition as well — but Pitchstone contacted me, and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Namely, the offer to publish the print edition of my book. They’re a small press, specializing in atheist books, including Attack of the Theocrats by Sean Faircloth, and Candidate Without a Prayer by Herb Silverman. I’m very happy to have my book in their catalog.

There is a small downside to this news, which is that it’s going to take slightly longer to get the print edition out (print-on-demand publishing is somewhat faster than conventional publishing). It’s now scheduled to come out in mid-June. The very big upside, though, is that it’ll be much more widely available. Pitchstone has distribution channels that I have zero access to as a self-publisher. So the book will be available in bookstores and everything!

As soon as it’s out, I’ll announce it here on the blog, as well as on Facebook and Twitter (my Twitter handle is @gretachristina). And here, once again, for those who have missed previous announcements about the book, is the description, and some wonderfully flattering blurbs. Watch this space for future announcements!

In front of a packed crowd during his panel titled "My Two Years with Dawkins, Christ and a Small Crab Called Eric" at Comic-Con International in San Diego, artist, writer and indie filmmaker Dave McKean recounted two recent life events on radically opposite ends of the philosophical spectrum: an all-ages book he illustrated with scientist and Atheism proponent Richard Dawkins called "The Magic of Reality," and a film he shot starring Michael Sheen in Port Talbot, Wales called "The Gospel of Us," a modern day interpretation of "The Passion" story chronicling Jesus Christ's final days of life on Earth.

Doctor Science - Obsidian Wings Comments

Last weekend I noticed two religion blogs, one Jewish and one evangelical (though not fundamentalist) Christian, discussing the same passages in the Bible: the ones commanding the Israelites to fight, slaughter, enslave, and dispossess the Canaanite inhabitants of the Land of Israel. To commit genocide, in fact.
