First, a bit of housekeeping: All of the pre-ordered copies of They Rode On have now been shipped, so if you haven’t already received yours—especially if you’re in Canada or overseas—check your mailbox this week on this side of either pond and anytime from early next week onward on the other. We’re sorry about the formatting-software related production delays that slowed this volume, but we’re confident that you’re going to feel it was well worth the wait. We’re grateful, needless to say, for your loyalty and patience.
Now, on to the subject of this post: We will release the third volume in our casebook series—Beyond Borders: Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses—in time for Christmas (we’re shooting for early to mid-December). Derived largely from the Society’s 20th Anniversary Conference at Berea College last March, this casebook takes a long, hard look at Cormac McCarthy’s most beloved novel. We have rounded up a nonpareil team of established scholars, uniquely perceptive newcomers, and iconoclastic professional writers to treat this important work from as many interesting, provocative, and entertaining perspectives as we can fit between its covers.
As we have for the first two volumes in the series, we are making the new volume available at a pre-publication discount. Until the end of November, prices are US$28.50 for members and US$33.00 for non-members for the paperback edition. The hardcover will be US$51.00 for members and US$56.00 for non-members.
In December, the retail price will increase to US$35.00 for members and US$40.00 for non-members for the paperback; members will pay US$60.00 and non-members will pay US$65.00 for the hardcover.
