The trade paperback version of Cites & Insights 12 (2012) is now available for purchase.
The 410-page 8.5×11 paperback costs $50, of which roughly half is a contribution to keep Cites & Insights going.
The volume includes all 12 issues (with photos printed in grayscale), plus a table of contents and indexes.
The wraparound cover photo is the paddlewheel of America’s greatest steam-powered riverboat, the American Queen (and the only authentic steam-powered sternwheeler actually offering multiday river cruises). It was taken during the American Queen’s inaugural season, 1995–and is the original paddlewheel (which is probably not the one on the boat, since there was a problem with the axle). It seemed appropriate since the American Queen returned to service in mid-2012 after a four-year hiatus–just as Cites & Insights returned to reasonably regular publication after a four-month hiatus. (If you had asked me in December 2011, I would have guessed that there might be half a dozen issues of C&I in 2012, or maybe three, or maybe none. But things change…and I won’t even begin to guess what 2013 holds.)
Save 30% Through November 27, 2012
If you act now–through Tuesday, November 27, 2012, you can save 30% on this and any other Cites & Insights books (or, indeed, anything at Lulu). Just put what you want in your cart; when you’re ready to check out, enter the code DELIRITAS (in all capital letters) in the coupon box. You can only use the code once, but it applies to your full order (not including tax & shipping).
That brings the book down to $35. Or better yet, add to your (or your library’s) professional literature collection by buying all seven available C&I annual volumes (2006 through 2012): You’ll effectively be getting seven for the price of five, and you’ll help a lot to support C&I. (The 30% discount does not reduce my revenue from the books: it’s a Lulu sale.)
