When I started this Substack I never imagined it would attract much interest, but my first year of writing has been a pleasant shock. The feedback from all of you has been truly humbling and wonderful and I am forever grateful. I’ve written somewhere in the region of 90k words, and although I trust Substack to not start cancelling or banning writers, I would hate to see this much work essentially disappear. After asking my twitter followers and friends, I’ve decided to turn this year’s work into a book. A self-published paperback and ebook, split into different topics - anthropology, archaeology, history and so on, as well as some new articles that I haven’t published. My aim is to have it out in the autumn.
I truly appreciate all the support I’ve received from my subscribers and followers, in particular those of you who have paid to support my efforts. It has shown me that there is a huge appetite for learning and discussion outside the narrow mainstream consensus, on a wide variety of topics. I have no intention of giving up, we are just getting started!
