"To be honest, I think you probably are overthinking it. I'm not sure what rules you were taught apart from trying to avoid split infinitives, not ending sentences with prepositions, and not using "like" to mean "such…"

Opinions please. I am disconcerted to see this man - whom I consider to be an authoritarian, puritanical moralist - standing for the Greens as their candidate in the Higgins by-election.Perhaps I'm being unfair to him: I have only read his opinion pieces, not his books. Still, those should convey his views. In particular he supports censorship of the internet. He advocates a post-secular morality. Anyone more familiar with his work than I am?

Hi there Russell,
I have just read 50 Voices - an excellent book! Worthy contributions. I was wondering if you knew of any literary agents that would be interested in atheistic writing. I have completed a book on free will aimed at the intelligent layman, explaining the playing field, how it interacts with religion and foreknowledge, and where society goes within a potentially deterministic framework. Would you have any hints for agents or publishers?
Wanted to tell you I really love 50 Voices of Disbelief. I am consuming it slowly. I like to read one when I'm feeling outnumbered if you know what I mean. I also saw you at the AAI convention in Burbank last October. Thank you for your contributions to this cause and community.
G'day Russell, I enjoyed your presentation at the Problem of Evil forum at UniMelb the other day. Pity the forum was only for an hour. Seemed like the speakers were just getting warmed up in the post-presentation discussion when it had to end.
