Ancient News: From Eisenbrauns, an Imprint of PSU Press

in this issue

general news

Welcome to the May issue of Ancient News. Our warehouse operations continue to be suspended for the safety of our employees. I wish I could give you a date for reopening, but like so many things in life right now, certainty is not attainable.

In other news, we asked for feedback on releasing things that are #stuckinthewarehouse, and you answered! We ended up converting five titles to print on demand so you could get your hands on them. I’ve listed them below. Be sure to use coupon code NR18 to receive 40% off.

Despite the warehouse suspending operations, we’re still producing—and acquiring— books. I’ve listed four forthcoming titles below that you will probably find interesting, especially the Festschrift for Jack Sasson, From Mari to Jerusalem and Back.

To get a better idea of what is coming out later this year, download the PSU Press catalog. It has three pages devoted to Eisenbrauns titles. I’m especially excited about the new Languages of the Ancient Near East Didactica series, featuring teaching grammars. We’re starting with Coptic; now I’ll have one less excuse not to learn it.

I ran across several good reviews of Eisenbrauns books this month. I’ve included an excerpt of one of them and an interview with an Eisenbrauns author below. Both of them are available for purchase; use coupon code NR18 for 40% off. 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 PSU Press books recently released as e-books that you might find interesting.

Please, take care of yourselves, and read a few good books—even amid the uncertainties!
