The Gloves

My copies of Martial Arts and Philosophy: Beating and Nothingness have arrived from the United States.

It's always a nice to see a finished publication: newspaper column, magazine feature, journal article and the like.

But a book is particularly satisfying: that airy, speculative idea I had a couple of years ago, suddenly tangible.  A proud, perhaps naive, part of me says: "I've made a real thing." (With help from my co-editor, contributors, publisher, designer, typesetter.)

This real thing is now in the hands of reviewers, broadcasters, editors, friends and readers.

The gloves are on! (Sorry.)
