Okay, folks, right after you subscribe to The American Conservative , please continue along the Path of Righteousness by subscribing to Books and Culture . These are two of the finest magazines around, and they need your support.
Having subscribed to B&C you’ll be able to read my essay in the new issue  about the creation of the first modern computers, with a special emphasis on the great John von Neumann. In the next issue I’ll have a piece on recent books linking evolutionary psychology to literary criticism.
Other forthcoming stuff, in the relatively distant future: Last year I published my critical edition of W. H. Auden’s long poem The Age of Anxiety , and next year will see the appearance of another work in the series, his earlier long poem For the Time Being: A Christmas Oratorio. That should appear sometime in the Spring. Later in the year should come my contribution to a wonderful series from Princeton University Press called Lives of the Great Religious Books : I’m writing the biography of the Book of Common Prayer. I am nearly finished now, and it’s one of the most enjoyable and rewarding projects I’ve ever undertaken.
And now on to nobler subjects!
