Summer is over, my friends, at least for me. As I write this, it is the second day of fall semester, and I just submitted the manuscript for Superman and Philosophy--missed the end of summer by two days, but that's OK. More news on that book as it works through the production process.
All in all, it was a good summer, finishing both the Superman book and The Manipulation of Choice. There were a few things on my to-do list that I didn't get to, but they weren't urgent (or so I tell myself!). I did get several other things done, including getting two new book projects off the ground, one of which (Law and Social Economics) I should hear news about this week, and the other (still a secret) I hope to hear something next week. Plus, a third, super-secret project, which I started plotting. (Yes, I said plotting. Be very scared.)
I did get two new posts up at Psychology Today since my last update: "Your Dream Lover Come True: Lessons from 'Ruby Sparks'" (August 14) and "Do We 'Grade' Potential Partners Like Teachers Grade Exams?" (August 17). I have ideas for several more, so I hope to return to blogging at PT more regularly (as well as Economics and Ethics and The Comics Professor).
In the meantime, I delve back into work for my department at school--which never stopped but did slow down nicely for the summer, even through August, which was very intense the previous summer--as well as writing a chapter on legal realism for The Good Wife and Philosophy (which involves catching up on episodes not yet seen and reviewing older ones for instances of judges behaving badly). Then I need to finish off a couple projects that I set aside to finish the Superman book before I start on the new things mentioned above. (Good thing I'm taking a sabbatical in the spring!)
