Firstly, as you may have noticed, we have been forced to push back the launch date of the second title in the Philosophy: The Best Bits series, Plato: Quotes from the Founder of Western Philosophy, until early 2017. We apologize for any inconvenience caused but please believe us when we say that this decision was not made lightly. Everybody here are Ichabod is committed to bringing you, our readers, only the best in e- and paperback books, and rather than fall down on that promise, we have elected to delay the release of our latest title until we are all 100% sure it’s ready to go. As such we are hoping for a January 2017 launch but as ever, watch this space for news as and when it develops.

Secondly, and rather excitingly, we are also taking this opportunity to announce the upcoming release of the next two titles in the Philosophy: The Best Bits series: Confucius: Quotes from the Model Teacher for Ten Thousand Ages, and Nietzsche: Quotes from God’s Executioner, which will form Philosophy: The Best Bits books 3 and 4 respectively.

Look for these titles to come out in early 2017 as well with releases from Legends, our Ichabod Press fiction imprint, also scheduled for later that year.
