AHA Updates

Humanist Press is the publishing house of the American Humanist Association, providing material for the humanist/freethought/atheist market since 1995.

With the largest print book seller in the United States now selling more ebooks than paper books, it was time the freethought movement invested in the future of publishing so that we can remain relevant and accessible to readers in the U.S. and around the globe.

With new ebooks becoming available on a bi-monthly basis, Humanist Press will have a regularly expanding catalog of interest to atheist and agnostic humanists everywhere. Visit

 @Gary, I owe you an apology on at least two counts. One, I used the wrong name for you and am really sorry that I had forgotten that you use Gary. I could have looked back to old posts and realized my error, however, I was sure I remembered correctly. 

Two, I misinterpreted the statement as being yours.  That is why I felt confused and needed clarification; it did not sound like you and now I understand why. I wonder if someone else reading it, who did not know you, could misinterpret your meaning? It would be helpful to use quote marks when sharing others' words; that would eliminate misunderstanding. 

When anyone writes something that seems out of character, I ask for clarity, and thankfully I did ask you. Your words always hold insights and wisdom and I value your contributions, I always read what you offer, and feel enriched. Thanks Gary.

Hey Tony! Doing good. Trying to stay out of the heat. Doing errands and such. And of course, posting on the Nexus.
