Thoughts on History Newsletter

In the fall of 2017, I was deep into research for my book A Good Place. As I had found with writing A Perfect Plan and Rule!, I kept coming across lots of interesting “extra” information that didn’t quite fit into the book. These items are just too interesting to ignore (the practice of pillory is a good example). Such topics, along with tidbits on language usage, surrounding history and cultural norms, just had to come out somewhere: hence the newsletter.

Thoughts on History is a free, emailed PDF that I  send out by email more or less quarterly. If you’re not getting the newsletter, please email me at and I’ll be happy to put you on the list for future mailings. Or, you can see them from this page.

I hope you’ll enjoy the newsletter and will feel free to share it with others. Happy reading!
