A few months back I had envisaged this as a summer devoted to Stanton.

And it still will be, to some extent.  But it is also a summer devoted to other things.  I am headed tomorrow to Nantucket, where I will speak about Seward, but also spend time with parents, friends, hopefully meet some other authors and people.  Then a few days in Exeter, and we (wife, daughter, dog and I) drive across the country.  Not much Stanton work done while driving.  Then a few days with son at/near Stanford.

So, for those asking about Stanton, it is coming along, but do not look for it this year in bookstores.
