Newly Expanded Paperback Edition of Seculosity Is Out!

Big news: the expanded paperback edition of #Seculosity is now available! This volume is what happens when you ask a record collector to prep a reissue: he insists on remastering and adding a ton of bonus tracks. I’m so grateful to Broadleaf Books for indulging me.

What’s new? I wrote an extra chapter about Fandom/Celebrity/Sports, added a ton of footnotes to the main text, compiled a Discussion Guide, and did a lengthy author Q&A to address various questions I’ve gotten along the way. So it’s about 25% longer and feels a lot more complete to me.

Grab it on Amazon or wherever books are sold.

Anyone looking to read it as part of a group, there are bulk discounts available from my publisher that I’m happy to pass on, just email me at info@mbird.com. Oh and don’t forget to please please pretty please post a review and/or rating on Amazon — that helps tremendously.

Finally, eternal thanks to Mark Babikow for outdoing himself with yet another amazing trailer.
