I’m pleased to announce that Replay Earth will be published by Anaphora Press. I expect the book will be out in the first half of 2019 — we’ll post more when we have a firmer schedule. The manuscript will be going to the publisher, though, by Labor Day and after that it’s design, proof, publish time.
We’re also going to have a special early reader program. I’ll be announcing details later, but the idea is that if you want to be one of the first 25 people to get a (free) copy, all you have to do is agree to review it on goodreads or Amazon (an honest review, of course). The best way to learn about that is to sign up for the Replay Earth email list in the bottom left of the page.
Three years ago, Effie Weisstein and I started talking about a book that would look at a world ravaged by climate change and corporate greed. It was obvious to both of us that in such a world, all the things that divide us would become magnified and create fault lines that might prove uncrossable. And that was before Donald Trump!
I wanted to explore how we might avoid that — how the ties that bind us might prove stronger in the end. And I think that’s what you’ll like most about Replay Earth: that more than technology or strategy or big data analytics, what humans have always had going for us is the ability to connect and cooperate. That’s what got us through the last 2 million years, after all.
Now that the book is done, I’ll be posting regularly on this site about the themes in the book: climate change, empathy, and human evolution. I’ll also be publishing small tastes of what’s to come. And be sure to sign up for the email list to get regular notifications.
