Academia Obscura book - published!

Dear lovely suppporters of academic obscurity,

The book is finally here! Like all good academic publications, it is way over the deadline, with excessive footnotes, and petty comments from Reviewer 2. (I just hope more than 3 people read it). 

First off, a massive thank you for pledging to make the book a reality (509 of you!). I am extremely grateful. I know it isn't easy to part with hard-earned cash for the promise of a book by someone you've never heard of, so thank you for your incredible belief and generosity. I hope it was worth the wait and that you'll love the book.

If you do love it, please consider tweeting and leaving a quick review on Amazon, Goodreads, etc. (if you don't love it, please kindly keep your opinions to yourself!).

If you will permit me one last favour, it'd be great if you could circulate the book among your networks and to any colleagues that are in need of a bit of comic relief. It should be available at all the usual places, e.g. Amazon and Book Depository.

Once again, a big thank you, and enjoy!

Yours in obscurity,
