Ancient News: From Eisenbrauns, an Imprint of PSU Press

in this issue

general news

Welcome to the October issue of Ancient News. This is my favorite time of the year, with the crisp cool (cold) mornings and the warm afternoons, kicking the crunchy leaves, taking long bike rides and staring at the colorful bluffs, and then settling in with a good book in the evening. And of course, we have plenty of good books! I recently started reading Miller’s Baal, St. George, and Khidr, a fun little read; you can get 30% off that and other new releases listed below using coupon code NR18. I mentioned last month that I had recently read An Introduction to Akkadian Literature; I strongly encourage you to consider it as a textbook, paired with Before the Muses for the texts. If you use the coupon code NR18, you can get them both for less than ANET or one volume of COS!

In related news, Jim retired on October 10th after more than 44 years in the book business. You can read more on our Facebook or Twitter pages. The new acquisitions editor, Dr. Jennifer Singletary, will begin November 1. She brings a wealth of experience with her and we look forward to her stewardship of the imprint’s publications.

The latest 10-day sale features selected titles in the Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale series at 30% off. The sale ends November 3rd, so hurry. I’ve listed some of the titles below, but take time to visit the sale page to see them all.

The time is getting tight on what will make the Annual Meetings from our new releases. I've listed some of them below, but to avoid missing any of them, you should subscribe to our new release emails. Update your email preferences here.

I only ran across one review of an Eisenbrauns book this month—of the excellent Jewish Bible Theology, edited by Isaac Kalimi; I’ve included an excerpt of the review below. Use coupon code NR18 for 30% off (and let me know if you agree that it’s a great book!). If you happen across a review of an Eisenbrauns book, please let me know about it via email!

Rounding out this month’s Ancient News is a pair of forthcoming PSU Press books that you might find interesting. Use coupon code NR18 to receive 30% off. You might also find the current two-week sale of interest: Magic in History, including the title Prayer, Magic, and the Stars in the Ancient and Late Antique World at 40% off. The sale ends October 31st.
