1. My forthcoming book, Tecumseh: A Biography, is now available for pre-order directly from Greenwood Press and from

2.Pop Thought has just conducted a new interview with me (published Jan. 3, 2008) about the book. You can read it here.

3. Also today, Sword of Gryffindor posted a new review of my Past Watchful Dragons: Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis book here.

4. I will be interviewed on Woodland Star New Radio (which is accessible via computer here) on January 6, 2008 at 6:55pm EST for approximately 40 minutes about my scholarly work regarding J.R.R. Tolkien. The show is entitled"An Afternoon of Wandering with Frodo and Dr. Amy H. Sturgis through Mirkwood Forest." Listeners can email questions before the interview ( or call in live to ask questions during the interview.

Here is the description from the website under "Woodland Star New Radio: Next Guest":

Thanks for asking! It will be, but there's a serious time lag before it's posted (as in several weeks, apparently). If I can find out when it goes up, I'll post an announcement about it. I appreciate your interest!

Some of my other interviews (text and MP3) are available here.
