The hardback test copy of Origen of Alexandria: Exegetical works on Ezekiel (text and translation of the homilies and fragments) has arrived and is fine. This is the first time I have seen the hardback, and its cover, and it all looks very good! It’s a meaty volume and no mistake!
I’ve now pressed the buttons on the Lightning Source website to tell them to make it available, both hardback and paperback. They already have the pricing etc information from Nielsen, the ISBN people. So I don’t see that there should be much delay.
The next thing I have to do is to add information about the book to Amazon. This is not a pleasant process, as I recall, since Amazon don’t bother to make it so.
It will interesting to see when the Amazon site changes to say that it is available to purchase! (For I doubt that it will really be available before then, come what may).

Let us know when it becomes available Roger and I will ask my library to purchase it. Job well done!
Thank you very much indeed! I certainly will. I’m guessing it will take a little while for the paperwork to trickle through.
Why can’t we buy them directly to you, at the full heavy price ? In order to “enrich” you (and your “staff” !), not the intermediaries…
You’re very kind! Unfortunately there is no way to eliminate some of the intermediaries, such as the printer! But I will make it possible to do so direct through a website. Amazon get 20%, so I could eliminate that.
The… what ? printer ? Are you aware that “gooses” – maybe geese ? without final “s” ? such a strange language… – have feathers, and calfs two-sided skins ?… Buy a candle, and under its eternal flame, work ! « My tailor (and Roger Pearse) is rich. », as we say in French.
Would that it were so!
I just looked o Amazon ad wow the HB is 75 bucks! Would love to purchase direct from you.
Log time reader, first time post.
Keep up with the good work!
Thanks for your comment! Glad to learn that the Amazon prices are adjusting already. I’ll post about direct prices once I know what these are. They probably won’t be a lot less, tho. 🙁
Congratulations Roger! I am looking forward to this one.
I am glad to see your your Gospel Problems book got a another mention recently too: http://bmcr.brynmawr.edu/2014/2014-02-05.html.
Zamagni’s contribution sounds intriguing.
Thank you! Zamagni is doing good work on a text that is very hard to work with.
