View Full Version : Questions for Phil about the SECOND book

2003-Aug-07, 06:08 PM
when can we expect the riveting sequel?????..... I read the first book in an afternoon.....and I've had a lot of bored afternoons ever since...so I want a sequel. A Hightech, twice the budget, three times the special affects (maybe even a little nudity) blockbuster sequel......

What will be the title of the book?
"Bad Astronomy 2"
"Worse Astronomy"
"More Bad Astronomy"
"Really Bad Astronomy"
"Bad Bad Astronomy"

Will it eventually evolve into a trilogy? :)
And years later you declare "Bad Astronomy" to be actually the fourth book of the series? :D
Or do you think, like the Bible, two books will do it? :lol:

Sigh. I have been thinking about a second book for some time. It is far too early to talk about it though, as I only have an idea I am working on. When I get it worked out and a publisher to buy it, I will make an announcement. 8)

You people are way off.

The next book is named:

Phillip Plait: My core beliefs :D

It's in a 8,5" x 14" format so there can be this huge picture of him on the front page with his hand under his chin and his elbow on a table. :lol:

...sitting on the toilet (clothed) pondering the universe. Sorry, couldn't resist. :D -Colt

Pondering the universe?

I don't think so, he'll do like many scientists and venture way off into a field he doesn't know. :D

I was thinking he should really go with massively huge picture of his face with hand partly visible on chin.

Maybe sell it with a poster, a larger version of that same picture.

We already have a thread for the next book's title: http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=5900 .

The BA could be on the back wearing the hat from some battleship, like one very annoying author...

How about some coke bottle specs, standing in front of a massive indoor telescope, whilst wearing a lab coat?
