A NOTE ON SUBMISSIONS TO BROADSTONE BOOKS:  We are currently reading for
publication in late 2016
and beyond.  We have decided to maintain our open submission
policy for now, however be aware that any work accepted this year is unlikely to appear for
at least two years from acceptance, possibly longer.  Also, the volume of submissions
we are now receiving makes it impractical for us to comment on most submissions to the
extent we have in the past.  For our full submission policy,
