To our readers

As many of you may have noticed, Short Stack has contained considerable coverage of political books in recent months. We at Book World believe strongly in the importance of book-length political writing to inform and educate the public on serious issues of the day. Political books cover an astonishing array of subjects that are part of the American conversation -- these are books not only about the political process: elections, the presidency, partisanship and the like but also about subjects that influence our political debate: national security, globalization, race, health care, justice, education, the environment, women's rights, and much more.

The Book World blog has been evolving to provide you with news and analysis of the political book scene. We will soon make this evolution official with a new name and new features that will make the blog into a place where you can discover and debate the latest must-read political books. The blog will cheer the thoughtful, expose the ridiculous, warn of the outrageous and identify trendsetters. It will provide a place where authors can argue their points and engage with you -- the active reading community. We look forward to your participation.

Does this mean that you will not be covering the rest of the world of the written word? What will happen to poetry, fiction, events of literary interest?

Sorry to hear this, unless you plan to start a separate blog for poetry, fiction, literary events, etc.

In my view, there is already enough politically-related news. News of the literary world is scarce, and now it will be scarcer.
