I'm correcting page proofs and compiling an index for my other book, the one that's not on Lorca and took me about four times longer to write. I'm thinking that one will be overshadowed by my Lorca book in some respects, yet be read more by those in my own field-- all 15 of them. I think this other book is excellent, though in a quite different way. It cannot match the fire power or sheer entertainment value of the Lorca project. I'm wondering whether it's such a great idea that they are coming out at the same time, since I myself am tending to diminish the achievement of that other book, which is actually going to be hugely influential on at least a third of those 15 people.
