|It's official. No mention of price, but small-run academic books can be hideously expensive.|

To: ARS members and contributors
From: Allan Gotthelf
On behalf of the ARS Steering Committee, I am delighted to report that the first book in the Society's new series, Ayn Rand Society Philosophical Studies, has been announced in the University of Pittsburgh Press's Fall 2010 catalog. The book, as you know from my previous memo, is titled Metaethics, Egoism, and Virtue: Studies in Ayn Rand's Normative Theory. I have served as editor and James G. Lennox as associate editor. Contributors include: Paul Bloomfield, Helen Cullyer, Allan Gotthelf, Lester H. Hunt, Irfan Khawaja, Tara Smith, Christine Swanton, and Darryl Wright. The volume will be released at the end of November 2010.
A .pdf of the catalog page may be found at
The book announcement is on catalog p.13. (It is p.15 on your .pdf toolbar, which also counts the outside and inside front cover.)
I am also very pleased to announce that the Press will make the book available to Ayn Rand Society members (paid up for AY 2010-11) and contributors (for AY 2010-11) at a discount of 30%. In the next couple of months I will issue a solicitation for dues and contributions for the coming academic year. Upon payment, members and contributors will receive a discount code for use in ordering either through the Press' website or its 800 number. Those already paid for 2010-11 will receive the code at that time.
