As volume editor for a collection of new scholarly essays on Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 that will be published by Salem Press in its Critical Insights Series, I am entertaining proposals for the following:

a biographical sketch, around 2000 words;

an introductory chapter on Cultural/Historical Context, 4000-5000 words;

an introductory Compare-and-Contrast chapter, 4000-5000 words;

an introductory Critical Lens chapter of a close reading from a particular critical standpoint, 4000-5000 words; and

ten Critical Reading chapters on topics related to the work, author, or its themes, 5000 words each.

Contributors will receive an honorarium of $250.

Interested scholars, please contact me immediately at mcgiver@lcc.edu or rafeeq.o.mcgiveron@gmail.com. Due dates will be around the middle of October, so the sooner I can get all ducks in a row, the better. Naturally, if you are interested, I of course have fuller instructions/guidelines from Salem to send, then a contributor’s contract, etc.
