I just learned from my editor at Cambridge University Press that The Design Inference is going to be issued in paperback in the next 6 months. This is good news. When the book came out in 1998, it listed at $55. I believe it is now up to $85. This will take the price down significantly and, I trust, make the ideas in that book all the more accessible. Also, for some reason, the hardback is issued these days without a dustcover. The dustcover contains some nice endorsements, notably, one by evolutionist Bill Wimsatt (go here and scroll down). I expect this information will be appearing on the cover of the paperback edition.
