Some great news!

Hi everyone,

The team at Unbound just wanted to give you an update on how things are progressing. Douglas's archive is housed in the library of his old Cambridge college, St John's. Covid-19 restrictions meant that it has been temporarily shut to visitors.

The good news is that this has now changed and people are being allowed back in. This means that Kevin can get cracking with the book. He has been busy working at home this summer but really needed to get into the library to make proper progress.


Thank you for your patience.

Good news! Are you able to offer a publication date for the finished book?

Surely the only possible answer to that would be “I love deadlines, I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by”?

Matt, you have made my entire week wonderful with that phrase! So glad Kevin can get back to work in the library. More important than a deadline flying past is the need to keep everyone safe. Douglas would want it that way. :)

My context-appropriate response has somehow been over-ridden by my curiosity regarding Mr. Adams' potential treatment of the COVID-19 situation. I am inclined to believe that there must be an Ultimate Answer to COVID.
