Dot, Dot, Dot is almost here!

Just passing along heads-up about a post on Jonathan MS Pearce's blog on his corner of Skeptic Ink where he details a bit about my upcoming Dot, Dot, Dot: Infinity Plus God Equals Folly (Link). For those uncomfortable that a book about mathematics might be difficult, let me quote him to ease your mind and pique your interest.
One book I am editing is in the final stages. The book is by James A. Lindsay and is called Dot, Dot, Dot: Infinity Plus God Equals Folly. I have managed to get Vic Stenger to write the foreword for it, too, which is great. The book is an easy-to-digest mathematical treatise on infinity and its application to the concept of God, which given the nature of infinity, becomes more and more abstract to the point of non-existence (looking also at ontological arguments). I am really enjoying the book, which has now largely been re-written to make a coherent narrative as opposed to its original form of unconnected essays. James has done a great job on making it a greatly readable and fascinating book.
Philosopher Peter Boghossian--author of the upcoming and potentially game-changing book A Manual for Creating Atheists (Amazon link)--had kind words about it as well, saying, 
A short and engaging read on the meeting of two huge ideas, infinity and God, that leaves us seeing both as abstract notions that may have nothing to do with reality. Honest and accessible, Dot, Dot, Dot is a great little book to stretch your thinking.
It's coming soon, probably by the end of the month at the latest, and it's very exciting. Keep your eyes and ears open for it and for upcoming news about it!
