Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever Valentine's Day Spectacular

January 13, 2015 — by Microcosm

We've been thinking a lot about love lately.... specifically about the great historical couple whose epic spats and charming make-ups grace the pages of so many of our favorite books.

Microcosm Staff: Meet Taylor Hurley, our developmental editor

January 12, 2015 — by Elly Blue

I'm an editor at Microcosm, which technically entails me overlooking the structure of each book we have going to print. I look specifically at obvious things like spelling, grammar, tone, etc., but also whether or not certain ideas have been fully developed, whether main ideas have been adequately explained. Since this job allows me to work from my computer, I operate mostly from my bed or random coffee shops. I don't like looking at books unless I have a lot of time to spend with them, so it often ends up being something I will set aside a whole day or so for anywhere from 3-5 days a week.

Santa Claus: A Critical History

December 25, 2014 — by Joe Biel

Many theological rejections are quick to point out that Christmas has never been celebrated anywhere near the actual birthday of Jesus and widespread consumerism has overwhelmed any religious focus in the Western world. So I feel safe assuming that Christmas has little, if any, relationship to Christianity, though if it's your Roman celebration of the Sun God, please carry on. (and send us photos!)
