A few weeks ago I sent the ‘author’s cut’ version of Criticism of Heaven off to the publishers – CCLM Publishing, in the Sino-Christian Studies Monograph Series. This is the full, original version, with the 100,000 words I originally had to cut restored to the text. Whole slabs of chapters are now restored, the original, longish conclusion is back, the book has been carefully edited and various earlier slips corrected, etc. Anyway, I had a question from the typesetter: he wonders whether the title, Criticism of Heaven: The Author’s Cut, is a good idea. Or rather, he is not sure about ‘The Author’s Cut’ bit. I must admit I like it, but (most) suggestions appreciated.
