The long essays are as you will find them here, but the pieces from the blog have required a fair amount of editing to rid them of extraneous matter, or simply to make corrections. Given the haste with which many of the blog posts were written, errors or simply ill-considered statements crept in (and have, thus far, been allowed to stand in their original form). A book requires more care.
This is my last book of prose, or so I intend it. But I have been wrong in making such assertions before.
