“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Realist Magic, Final Phase

Starting to put in some edits by Graham and some new stuff by me.

See the thing is, Graham is your actual genius. He sent me eight pages of comments on the book. Within 24 hours of starting to read it.

Glad to hear this, Tim! I'm a big fan of your earlier work, especially _Poetics of Spice_ (which I recently assigned as a recommended text to grad students in my "Exotic Romanticism" seminar), and _Ecology without Nature_. Plus, I've been reading a fair bit of speculative realist material myself lately. So I'm very excited for your new book on the subject. Do you know when it's set to be published? All best, Evan Gottlieb
