Dear Dennis,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I know that often we  
academics are ashamed to self-promote our publishing achievements, but  
I always greatly appreciate self-promotion on list-serves. It helps me  
budget my book money for the year, and it also helps me work with our  
librarians to make sure books that are desperately needed in our  
collection are purchased and put into circulation. Unfortunately, the  
publication and dissemination of publisher catalogues doesn't always  
work in concert with how our library operates its budget year. So,  
please, Miltonists, I think I can speak for all of us when I beg you  
to announce your accomplishments openly and without hand-wringing. We  
want to read your scholarship, and God knows my library needs your  

All the best,
	Mitch Harris
