Received the following from the managing editor at McFarland yesterday, and won’t take the time to editorialize just now, but will keep you posted:
Today we have shipped proofs for your book, Richard Matheson on Screen, via UPS to the address you provided. You can now carry out your final two jobs, proofreading the book and creating an index. A form letter with general instructions accompanies the proofs.
Publication is now very near—most books go to the printer just days after we receive the proofs and index.
Your book is tentatively scheduled to be sent to the printer 4 weeks from today’s date. To avoid delays, please give the proofs and index prompt attention.
We look forward to bringing your book into print soon.
