It's been a while since I've posted on the book The Semiotics of Animal Representations, but this does not mean I have not been working on it, along with my co-editor Kadri Tüür. Admittedly, there's been some unplanned breaks (some of which due to gall bladder-type problems). Work has been particularly intense around the summer of 2013 and then around Christmas/New Year 2013/2014. For a third year in a row, this book was in 2013, as in 2011 and 2012, the book project I spent the most time on.
Requested revisions were finished and submitted to our series editors in August 2013. Then further revisions, in response to further feedback, increasingly about page layout etc., were made by September. Then we worked with discussing and eventually expanding the index. A revised manuscript was submitted December 23rd, and then following further feedback on page layout reworked and resubmitted January 3rd, 5th and - finally - 13th. Now everything should be in place.
What remains now is the design of cover and back page, then the book should, at last, be printed.
