T & T Clark: "Let there be blog"


Mark Goodacre recently pointed out that T&T Clark, part of the Continuum group, has started a blog.

The first post says it all: "In the beginning...the internet was a formless void...and T & T Clark said, "Let there be blog!" And there was blog and it was good."

Check out the blog for the latest news, reviews and publications of T & T Clark.

My only constant lament regarding T & T Clark is that the pricing of its excellent academic books is a little bit way beyond the reach of many poor seminary lecturers and seminarians in the Two-Thirds world. I wonder any special discount would be given (well, as a typical Malaysian, I am not shy to ask for discount - and you can tell why by the large number of T&T Clark books that are found in my Amazon.com wishlist)!

Hi Kar Yong,

Other poor laypeople like us are also affected by the high prices of T&T books (similarly, Equinox).

But on the other hand, i recognize that the academy is like all other industry; need a dose of capitalism to keep it going well. So, i can't really complain much. The scholars deserve their pay.

Well, to be honest, there is no money (literally!)to be made by scholars in academic publishing!! In the end, it is the retailers that make all the money. One of my friends was actually asked to contribute financially to the editorial work of his book, and this was by a reputable academic publisher!
