So that’s done then!

So … there it is. Or rather, there it was, a print-out of Gödel Mk 2 sitting on the table, before being taken off to the CUP building today, as an electronic version was emailed. Done and dusted. I hope. Of course I was agonizing over trivia up to the very last minute. But now I’ve promised myself not to look at it again till the presses are rolling and I can do no more about it. Nor will I mention it again here until near publication day. Promise! But, on the whole, that’s been a very enjoyable writing experience, and I’m very grateful to CUP for the chance of putting together a much improved version of the book.

  1. Well done, Prof. Smith. Congratulations!

    Now go enjoy that bottle of claret you had been saving just for such an occasion.

    • Peter Smith says:

      Claret? Claret? I’m shocked, Aldo, shocked. Surely you would agree that it can only be Barolo or Brunello …

      • David Auerbach says:

        Let’s not rush into this menu planning. Shouldn’t we pick the food first? Unless, of course, the Barolo has been waiting for this occasion, in which case you might whip up a boar stew. And perhaps that only after a first course accompanied by some crisp Austrian white (a nod to Gödel).
        And then an Islay malt.
        Or so say I.

    Well done Peter! Were I in town, I would pop over with a couple of bottles of the best champagne in Cambridge, to help launch the new edition. To which I would add two dozen jelly donuts on special order from Fitzbillies. Not quite an Austrian salute, but close.

    Good news. Congratulations!

    Now when can we expect that book on ordinals? :)

    • David Auerbach says:

      The book on the ordinals? The countdown has started; I just hope it’s a reasonable ordinal we’re counting down…

    Is there a more precise date than ‘March 2013’ for the publication of the 2nd edition? I.e. when will I be able to walk into the CUP shop in Cambridge and acquire a copy? :)
