And the tree at last bears fruit.
I am pleased to announce that I have published The Atheist's Tale.
I hope that you regulars here who commented on my work in progress will be so kind as to examine the preview, and especially the acknowledgements. Hint, hint.
Thanks to everyone whose words of wisdom contributed to the completion of the work. I may yet do one more revision to the cover -- still not 100% satisfied -- but I want to see a proof copy before I make any changes.
Thank you all for your comments, suggestions, and encouragement.
